The Gathering of the Shaman
Natsume was out with Touko to help her with the shopping. Feeling that he’s the one that’s always being looked after, he wishes that he could help someone too one day. Just then they notice a wounded Youkai falling from the sky but it was too late by the time they caught up with it in the forest. Another Youkai in the form of a giant head bursts out of the bushes and devours it leaving a trail of blood. Hiragi and Natori appears before Natsume and he learns they were after it. He is invited to help him out and attend a gathering where both Youkais and people with similar abilities as Natsume gathered. Hoping he could find someone he could share his pain with, he decides to go and comes across an old woman named “Nanase” who could also see Youkais. She was the secretary of a powerful Youkai hunter Matoba and offers them a pot to help seal the big headed Youkai.

However, they remain determined to win this challenge set before them and find a way to seal the threatening Youkai for good.
