It Blooms Tomorrow is the sixty-fifth episode of the Natsume Yuujinchou anime. It is the second episode of Natsume Yuujinchou Roku, which is the sixth season of the anime.
While returning from shopping with Touko-san, Natsume Takashi finds a splendid pattern of flowers on a boulder, which she couldn't see, meaning it drawn by a youkai. The next day, he sees the same pattern drawn on small stones on the riverbank while out fishing with Nishimura and Kitamoto.
That night, he arrives home to find the Dog's Circle partying at his house, which reveal that a stonewasher was behind the patterns. A stonewasher is a youkai that purifies impure stones, rocks, pebbles, or boulders.
The next afternoon, while returning home from school, he meets the stonewasher, purely by luck, who requests Natsume's assistance in finding his lost apprentice. Natsume then assigns this task to the Dog's Circle who also show up at that moment.
That night, the Chukyuu arrive at Natsume's house to inform of some intel and take him to the place where Azuma (Nanamaki's apprentice) was sealed by an amateur exorcist, who didn't know of stonewashers.
There, after Nanamaki purifies the boulder behind which Azuma was sealed, the seal is weakened, thus allowing Madara to be able to break the seal. However, Azuma was not there, as he was hiding because after being exorcised, he could no longer wash stones.
He is finally found by Natsume and Nanasaki at the riverbank and Nanasaki still accepts him back, even though he is no longer a stonewasher.
