* FantasticRacism: Though this is toned up in the anime, the antagonistic Matoba clan holds the Youkai to be creatures inherently inferior to humans, believing they possess no emotion or empathy and are thus [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything meant to be in human service]]. The context is upped in season 4, where the Matoba's aggressively hunt a tribal clan of monkey youkai (wearing tribal masks and brandishing spears, no less) who openly wonder what they ever did to humans to deserve this treatment. In the anime, Matoba is later seen punishing one of them for the "crime" of entering a human home (this was changed from the manga where he tortures the ayakashi to get Natsume to talk about Reiko).

* LifeDeathJuxtaposition: Fuzuki is the god of the Absent Moon and Houzuki is the god of the Harvest Moon. During the competition in the Moon-Splitting Festival in the anime, Fuzuki says that if he wins the competition, he'll make Misumigahara barren for ten years, and Houzuki says he'll make her bountiful and healthy if he wins the competition instead.

* [[TheyReallyDoLoveEachOther Aww, Look! They Really Do Care For Each Other]]: A non-romantic example though not fully a VitriolicBestBuds, the two do really care about each other. Specifically examples include where [[spoiler: Nyanko-sensei saves Natsume from a group of masked-youkai, fully claiming his responsibility of being his bodyguard]]. In the anime [[spoiler: Natsume shields Nyanko-sensei from Matoba's dagger, even with Matoba reminding Natsume the possibility of Nyanko-sensei using Natsume]]. Not that it started off that way nor will either two admit it directly.

An appropriate word of description for this series would probably be "heartwarming". It's been described as "Manga/{{Tactics}}, but less violent", though it definitely has its moments. The occasional outbursts of action are balanced out against gentle explorations of the supernatural, basically it's a light-on-plot, SliceOfLife take on the spirit world, and a sometimes exciting, sometimes peaceful foray into the world of the supernatural. And it's packed with more CrowningMomentsOfHeartwarming and {{TearJerker}}s than you can shake a stick at.

Added DiffLines:

** The art for later seasons of the anime look more polished compared to the first seasons. Natsume in particular looks a bit younger in comparison to how he was drawn for the first two seasons.


Added DiffLines:

** There's also the [[EvilTwin mean]], palette swapped versions of those two youkai that hang around the mountain where the fox youkai lives.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}: Kaoru and Aoi draw many parallels to [[TalesOfZestiria Dezel and Rose]], including sharing the same voice actors. Like Rose, Kaoru is a female human, has the ability to see creatures that most normal humans can't, but her ability isn't at the same level as Natsume's. She ends up forming a close relationship with a non-human that eventually blossoms into love. [[spoiler: Unlike Dezel and Rose, however, Aoi doesn't die and both get a happier ending.]]
