** It's mentioned in a later chapter that she gave birth without ever marrying, so it could have been that she grew fond of that "strange man" who kept buying her manjuu, for example, but because of her problems with human beings, pushed him away.

** It's possible that it only looked like the seal was easily broken, but it was only broken that easily because the one who tripped over it was Natsume, and Natsume's high spiritual power coming into contact with the seal was the reason why it broke. It's also very likely that the seal weakened because it was a long time ago. He could very well have been sealed by someone with extremely high spiritual power, like Reiko.



** Ok, so recent chapters have confirmed the whereabouts of her family (her brother and dad being overseas while her mother works late). But we still don't have any confirmation of what and how Taki's family was like during the period where Taki was mostly silent (were her brother and father overseas when it happen)?

** In the introductory Hakozaki chapters, one of the dragon shiki of an ex-exorcist mentioned a man who visited that had similar features to Natsume. It was dimissed to either be Reiko or Natsume's dad so it is assumed to be Natsume's grandfather.

** In Chapter 59, the acorn eater's memories include Reiko talking almost fondly about a "strange" human man who's been "nagging" her by telling her to not do reckless things like climb trees but buys her manjuu.

** Madara mentions "well there are a lot of reasons for that" when Natsume asks in the early chapters, so it seems he might have willing let himself be caught or it was out of carelessness

** It's also possible she wound up having a loveless affair with a man, which lead to a child (these things do happen). Though this is more WMG.

* What is the point of changing Natsume's hair color from manga when adapted into anime? I know these things happen often, but what is the point?

** Well, there's possibility of her having a relationship with a youkai, although it goes into WMG. It is possible, as shown with Aoi (the bird spirit) and his girlfriend.

** She referred to Shigeru as "the boy [she] likes", so it seems possible that she could have grown fond of, even come to love, another human.

* Given that Reiko was Takashi's grandmother, she must've had a child (Takashi's mom? The anime isn't clear on this), right? On the other hand, she seemed to have a rather strong dislike for humans (and maybe youkai too). It doesn't quite make sense.
