Fleeting Light is the eight episode of the Natsume Yuujinchou anime. It first aired on August 25, 2008.


Natsume meets a spirit who used to be friends with a man who could also see spirits. But one day, that man lost this ability. This event resulted with the spirit distrusting humans.

Natsume is walking by a lake with Madara when he sees a middle-aged man sitting on the banks of the lake. The man asks Natsume if he is here to see the fireflies and Natsume replies yes. He tells Natsume that he is a bit too early in time and season, the fireflies' numbers were dwindling. Natsume nods in understanding and leaves but not before noticing a youkai behind the man.
