It starts with Natsume running through the woods, being chased by something only he can see. It gets explained while he’s running that he has always been able to see strange things, like ghosts and youkai. He seems to encounter more youkai than anything else. As Natsume is trying to escape, he is mistaken for his grandmother, Reiko Natsume, who also had strong supernatural ability, that had passed away. Natsume breaks a seal in his escape, accidentally releasing a youkai that holds the form of maneki neko, which he eventually dubs Nyanko-sensei."
