Book of friends by Yuki Midorikawa

The “Book of friends” is a manga based in a world where Yokai live right alongside normal humans, unseen by all but a young orphan boy called Natsume. This boy must try to make it through life without being eaten because of a book he inherited from his deceased grandmother which contains the names of many powerful Yoke who want them returned. After being passed around from relative to relative, Natsume somehow finds himself living with a really nice couple until he breaks the seal on a really powerful Yokai trapped in a cat statue. I highly recommend this to people who love stories of the supernatural and with a heart for comedy as Natsume and Nyanko-Sensei take you on a dramatic adventure of trying not to be eaten and making new friends.
