Natsume Yuujinchou started airing in Japan in July of 2008. The story centers around a high school student who is able to see spirits (more in the vein of kami, not ghosts) and inherits a very special 'book of friends' from his late grandmother.
So far the series only has seven episodes, but I would highly recommend it. It is light and comedic at times, very touching and heartfelt in others. Despite how 'high fantasy' the series might sound, it is more drama than action and relatively down to earth. The characters are believable, very enjoyable to watch, and easy to empathize with.
I highly recommend checking it it out.
(this anime is only available in fansub at this time, as it only started airing in Japan a little over a month ago)
Re: Natsume Yuujinchou
I've seen all of this episode so far, and I have to say that I highly recommend it:hattip:
It's a really good one, but its kinda sad how the writers never really let him "connect" with people
