I was half-joking when I said in the last episode that Natori might be evil and he just goes in this episode to prove me right. I still believe in him, he’s like a brother to Natsume and wishes for him to live a normal life and maybe that’s why he wants to know about the precious thing that Natsume carries all the time. His expression was really evil and so was his tone but this is all to deceive us, right? Right? I really don’t want Natsume to go through any more trauma and IF Natori back stabs the damage will be worse.
It hurts when they are not on the same page. Natsume wanted Natori’s teacher to see his shiki for the last time but Natori flatly said it’s a forbidden spell. They still worked together to free the yokai and dismiss the misunderstandings between the teacher and his shiki.
Now let’s work on solving the main misunderstanding. Natori, don’t go to the evil side. They don’t have delicious cookies.
