Unchanging Form is the fifty-third episode of the Natsume Yuujinchou anime. It first aired on October 4, 2016. It is the first episode of Natsume Yuujinchou Go, which is the fifth season of the anime.
At school, Natsume starts having a recurring dream of a pot following him, or sometimes or a female ghost.
The next day, he really does see the pot youkai following him, which he tries to escape, but unfortunately that just leads it to his home. After having a confrontation at the front door, the youkai, mistaking Takashi for Reiko, threatens to take away Natsume's 'treasure' if he does not return what he stole from it.
The next day, Natsume goes looking for that pot youkai and stumbles across a log cabin in the middle of the woods. He finds a kind lady living in the cabin, and asks if she knows the youkai, only to receive a negative response. After leaving the log cabin, Natsume meets two lower youkai who warn him that the youkai in the cabin is scary, much to his confusion. He finds out that the pot youkai, whose name is Kayatsubo, holds a grudge against Reiko because it had a doll stolen by Reiko, who abandoned it in another part of the woods. This story is confirmed, although clarified further, by another youkai.
Natsume finds the doll after looking around in the forest, but Kayatsubo does not recognise it because it is dirty. Hence, after cleaning the doll at home, Nyanko-sensei and Natsume return the doll to Kayatsubo, who leaves happily.
