Fragglepuss Anime Review 222: How to Keep a Mummy / Miira no Kaikata

How to Keep a Mummy / Miira no Kaikata

Review by: John Fragglepuss Evans

Genre: Comedy, Slice of Life, Supernatural, Mummies

First Aired: Winter 2018, 12 episodes

Summary: High Schooler Sora Kashiwagi is an exceptionally ordinary student despite his adventurous father, who travels the world sending bizarre gifts back to Sora. The gifts appear harmless at first sight but always end up tricking poor Sora, who has to deal with the consequences of his father’s reckless behavior. The series begins with Kashiwagi receiving an oversized package containing the most adorable little mummy!

How to Keep a Mummy is the most adorable anime I’ve watched in quite a while. The little guy is so sweet and always wanting to help, whether it’s chopping vegetables or wetting a washcloth to place on someone’s forehead. He can’t speak but is able to convey his emotion so well that you don’t even notice. You must work to gain his trust, but once you have it you’re in. The animation is nothing special and the soundtrack is average, but where the show shines is in the characters, from the mummy to Kashiwagi and company.

You might enjoy this if: You have always wanted a tiny sidekick that you can put in your pocket and take with you wherever you go.

You might not like it if: You’re a mummy traditionalist with the opinion that mummies should be full-size and scary.

Similar Series: The Boy and the Beast, Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, Lovely Muuuuuuuco, Neko Ramen, Princess Jellyfish

Note to the Viewer: How to Keep a Mummy has been serialized online as a manga since 2014 via Comico Japan. Four manga volumes have been published.
