Okay so this is the official episode 7, last week was the rerun of the OVA
Friendship goal~ I need friends like them in my life.
Natsume, Tanuma, Nishimura and Kitamoto go on a vacation to Tanuma’s aunt’s inn to help her because of the renovations and of course Nyanko is with them too because there are yokais and hot springs and sake.
Tanuma shares his story that he lived in the next town and sometimes when his father was absent he’s sent to his aunt and an old lady used to take care of him. The old lady is happy to meet Tanuma and his friends.
Boys stay up till late because they got scared after looking at scary pictures and after pillow fighting everyone goes to bed except a yokai who leaves the room as Natsume wakes up. Nyanko follows its steps.
Next day only Tanuma realizes after looking at Natsume that something must have happened. Something feels strange, there were five guests in the inn and now there are six. Natsume tries to find the yokai and meets the one he saw at night and it’s the old lady. She’s looking for the mask for the festival. She asks Natsume to keep it a secret about her being a yokai from Tanuma.
Natsume feels bad about hiding but doesn’t tell Tanuma. He finds the mask on one of the guests and they, the couple, are the one Tanuma was looking at keenly. Natsume and Nyanko try to take the mask and the old lady comes just in time to claim it.
Natsume falls sick because of the yokais energy and his friends stay with him and decide to see the festival the next day. The old lady bids Natsume farewell as she can’t live in the town anymore since he knows about her. Natsume asks her to stay.
Tanuma tells Natsume at the festival that he met the old lady as a kid when he’s lost and sometimes he’s scared of her because he thought she’s a yokai. He wanted her to meet his friends so she can know he’s not alone anymore.
Aw man, Natsume too had a yokai he thought was human. The girl who used to visit him in the park and one day a lady from the neighboring house saw Natsume and asked him what he’s doing alone and poor Natsume’s shocked T_T
