NIS America has released some great limited edition boxsets since they began releasing anime, but they’ve also slowly been releasing cheaper Standard Editions. The first two seasons of Natsume’s Book of Friends and all three volumes of kimi ni todoke are the latest titles to get Standard Editions, and all four will release on February 4th.. Both series come with a story guide leaflet and bonus clips. Natsume’s Book of Friends Season 1&2 will cost $59.99 for 4 DVDs, while each volume of kimi ni todoke will cost $54.99 for two Blu-rays/DVDs. I really enjoyed both of these series and would definitely recommend them for anime fans looking for something new to watch. Full details below.

Natsume’s Book of Friends Season 1 & 2 Standard Edition

“At turns exciting, touching and funny, ‘Natsume’s Book of Friends’ is an anime anyone can watch and everyone will enjoy.”
– Ani.me

About the show: Natsume has always been an outcast because he inherited his grandmother Reiko’s ability to see yokai (strange beings that are invisible to most people). After moving to his grandmother’s hometown and accidentally releasing a yokai who was imprisoned in a Lucky Cat statue, he learns about one of his grandmother’s keepsakes, her “Book of Friends,” which contains the names of the yokai she defeated, and allows its wielder to command the yokai named within. Since then, his life has gotten much more hectic, and yokai now visit him on a daily basis, seeking to either get their names back or take possession of the Book of Friends.

About the show: Sawako Kuronuma has had a difficult time fitting in.

On her first day of high school, Sawako meets the one boy who treats her like a normal girl—Shota Kazehaya. Through his selfless aid, Sawako slowly learns to come out of her shell and even begins to make friends for the first time in her life.
