Plot Summary


Kashiwagi Sora is living a totally normal high school student life, when his self-proclaimed "adventurer" father sends him a mummy from his travels in Egypt! Sora balks at the letter from his crazy dad ("I found a cool mummy, so I decided to leave it with you, son!") at first, but the mummy that emerges from inside the huge coffin in his living room is a mere 12 centimeters tall--small enough to fit in the palm of his hand... Not only that, it's shy, a crybaby, and most of all, heckin' cute. And so, Sora and ends up keeping the mummy, naming his new little buddy "Mii-kun." But living with a mummy might be easier said than done...!

The first episode is now up. Show airs 12pm Pacific on Thursdays: http://www.crunchyroll.com/how-to-keep-a-mummy/episode-1-white-round-tiny-wimpy-and-ready-759657

Episode 1

Sora has gotten yet another weird object from his father, and this time it's weirder than anything he has gotten before as it's a coffin, with a tiny mummy. It's up to him to take care of that little rascal, but he's not exactly sure what to do. It can't do chores because of its size, and it barks, causing a lot of commotion for the dog. And now his friend knows about it. Sora sure took on a boatload of trouble in that tiny thing. Pretty interesting start there, and while the humor is nice, some of it really fell flat. It's decent enough, but I'm not really convinced at this point.

Episode 1 link on CR

I think this was okay. Not impressed by Sora's role as the protagonist yet but the little critters are really fun to watch, especially Mii-kun.

It feels like a very lighthearted story with comedy and noticable character interactions. Mii-kun really is quite something as the mini mummy and the noises it makes. Quite an unpredictable character.

Curious to see the others appear in this show soon.

Episode 1

Sora lives with his sister Kaede and one day happens to receive a package from his adventure father. He sends him a mummy as he found it cute and thinks Sora will like it. Sora finds it weird as he has sent things before that have tried to kill him but not this time. The mummy seems to want Sora's attention when his dog pochi comes in and they fight for his attention. Sora decides to name the mummy Mii-kun and figures out what it like to eat. The next day he tells his friend Tazuki and he comes over to see the mummy. He is interested in what the mummy could be and scares Mii-kun that he hides behind Sora's back.

I found the first episode really funny and Mii-kun really cute. I also found it interesting how Sora tried to figure out what Mii-kun would like to eat. We can expect more cute monsters to show as the show goes along.

Episode 1

The character designs for this show are generic as hell...

But that mummy is so goddamn cute! If there is anything that'll keep me around for this show, it'll be to see how good and SMOL the mummy is!

Usually I enjoy anime's weird juxtapositions but this is just dumb. What is this a mummy of a fetus? Are they just trying to sell Nendoroids by making the main character one?
I actually thought his own fantasy about the mummy being a cute but psycopathic girl would have been more interesting, someone make that show. I'm dropping this I don't even care to find out what those other things are in the OP and ED.

WTF did I just watch?
It reminds me of Katekyo Hitman Reborn for some reason.

Well, that was a thing. Cute, but not much substance to go with it. I have a distinct feeling this was developed to sell cute merchandise of the mummy character.

All 5 of my kids (ages 14-4) are thoroughly enchanted by this. They literally cannot get enough of Mii-kun. I think they're watching this episode for the 6th time right now.

It's an anime about a tiny mummy. Maybe everyone's looking too hard to find depth in this. LOL.

I watched the first episode out of curiosity. I ended up laughing way too hard when Mii-kun and Pochi were barking at each other. XD

Episode 2

At least Mii-kun is trying being useful in some way, but his small size just is too much of an obstacle and is only getting in Sora's way. Tazuki has taken quite a liking to Mii-kun, but he's all to curious about what's under the bandages. With Mii-kun drying up at home that Sora takes him to school, and Motegi sees it. While Sora came up with a brilliant plan to make Mii-kun dolls, he forgot to make sure she took one of the fakes and not the real Mii-kun. Thus, he goes around trying to sneak out of the vents, but he runs into a rat and gets chased out. That was pretty crazy that just went down, and certainly having to look after Mii-kun is quite a problematic.
