Finally seeing Natsume's few memories of his parents was rather sad, but at the same time, it makes the scenes with the Fujiwaras all the better. I also really enjoyed the chapters with Tanuma and Taki because Natsume had to admit it was hard for him to let even them into his world, but he tried anyway. He's opening up to everyone in his world more and more. There weren't as many youkai in this volume, but the last one was very youkai intensive so I think it was good to have a reflective tone to this one.
The manga includes some violence including evidence of bullying, fights between youkai, Natsume and Nyanko-sensei, but the worst results seem to be cuts, bruises and talk about eating people (very rarely do people actually get eaten in the series). There isn't any cursing. Nyanko-sensei is a drunkard, who spends most of his time in a Lucky Cat form.
