In the August, September, and October issues of LaLA Magazine, readers can get a special original-OVA DVD for Natsume Yuujinchou. This one-hour long episode OAD was aired on December, 2013.


Nyanko-Sensei wanders off from Natsume during a walk, and with the help of some of his fellow youkai, leads a pair of wandering children to the place they are searching for which they call, "mitsumonster."


The story begins during a pleasant day and the fat-with-winter-fur (as he claims) Nyanko-sensei, is being walked by Natsume. Separated, Nyanko-sensei meets two children seemingly lost in the forest. Seeing them as potential food for the other youkai, Nyanko-sensei decides to protect them.

The children say that they are looking for "Mitsumonster", a shop in town. Since Nyanko-sensei does not understand what the children are saying, he desperately searches for familiar faces among the youkais to help. Not long after, they meet with Chukyuu A and B, asking for help, but to no avail. They instead point them in the direction of Hinoe. Hinoe then redirects them to Chobihige.

Chobihige argues with Nyanko about whether he is a mochi cake or not, and that if he is, Chobihige will not eat him, as he considers him a "dirty" mochi cake.

While they fight, the brother remembers the errand list and shows both youkai. Nyanko shows them the way to the local shop. Their mother is already waiting at the store.

While Nyanko-sensei is separated from Natsume, Natsume goes and searches for him. He stumbles across Nishimura & Kitamoto by the road. They say Nyan-nyan sensei will be back by dinner, reassuring Natsume that he will not miss Touko’s cooking.

Later, in the forest, Natsume meets with Tanuma. When Natsume asks Tanuma if he has seen Nyanko-sensei, Tanuma denies it, insisting that Ponta (his nickname for Nyanko-sensei) will be back before dinner time.

Natsume arrives at the shop and meets Taki and Sasada, who happen to be walking out. Natsume hears Sasada attempting to persuade Taki to eat a chocolate bar. Taki replies that she will never try it, believing a rumor that if she eats it, she will never stop.

Meanwhile, Natori seems content, eating chocolate outside a store. Hiiragi notes that even someone like Natori likes those kinds of things. Natori in turn claims that he has liked chocolate since he was a young child.

Later, Nyanko sees Touko come out from a store (the Mitsumonster Store), snuggles against her leg and walks home with her. They are both welcomed back by Natsume.
