Shigure and The Girl is the fourth episode of the Natsume Yuujinchou anime. It first aired on July 28, 2008.


Natsume is invited by his classmates to participate in the class "trial of courage". They tell Natsume that recently, a certain spirit has repeatedly appeared at the abandoned school building, and they wish to venture in the building using the trial. But Natsume's secret is somewhat found out by Sasada, the class president, during the trial.

She asks for his help to find the spirit that lives in the abandoned school, but Natsume denies the fact that he can see ghosts or spirits, but she wouldn't take 'no' for an answer.

Meanwhile, the spirit Sasada was looking for, Shigure, captures the rest of their schoolmates, in fury of the school being torn down.
