this has to be in my top favorite shoujo mangas ever. it’s sad, funny, and there’s an anime!
the story follows the book of friends that is a collection of numerous youkai‘s signatures and gives the owner of the book the power to control all those youkai. then natsume, who can see youkai, inherits the book from his grandmother who was notorious for defeating youkai back in her day. when he was younger his parents died and forced him to be moved from relative to relative and each of them ended up not liking him because he could see youkai. after moving with the fujiwaras who are kind and let him live with them, he starts to meet youkai and gets to know them more
it’s a touching story and the art in the manga is a little bit messy but i just love this so definitely check it out
