The Letter From the Exorcist is the fifty-five episode of the Natsume Yuujinchou anime. It first aired on October 18, 2016. It is the third episode for Natsume Yuujinchou Go, which is the fifth season of the anime.


Natsume arrives at his house after school, only to find a strange letter addressed to him. Later, while out walking looking for Nyanko-sensei, he meets an inexperienced exorcist sealing away a youkai, the wind from which blows away the letter. He realises this, however, only after he finds Nyanko-sensei, who in turn, states that youkai was not sealed properly, and that it will break out within a few days.

The duo decide to ask Natori Shuuichi for help and so, visit his residence. There, even though the youkai manages to break the seal, it is caught again by Natori-san.

Afterwards, when Natsume arrives home, he finds Seiji Matoba at the entrance, who blackmails him to come to a meeting of exorcists.

This is continued in the next episode.
