How To Keep A Mummy Episode 2: There’s No Real Story But It Remains Pretty Cute


How To Keep a Mummy Episode 2 is kind of hard to review given the characters kind of serve their purpose, it looks kind of average, the music is nothing special but not bad, and there’s basically no overall plot and yet it is just too adorable for words. While watching I’m not feeling bored because I’m just kind of waiting for the next super cute thing Mii-Kun is going to do and to be honest it is like watching a kitten. Just when you think you’ve seen the cutest thing ever something even cuter happens.

How to Keep a Mummy

How To Keep a Mummy manages to make horrific seem adorable.

This episode did introduce us to the two other characters from the opening at Sora’s school so I assume they’ll play more of a role as we go forward, but basically we’re still seeing Sora getting used to looking after Mii-kun. First we get a cooking session at home (hence the mummy sized knife) and then we go to school where Mii-kun is forced to escape from the girls’ locker room and is chased by a rat.


As I said, How to Keep a Mummy isn’t exactly a masterpiece and yet for a switch off and relax this is kind of hitting the spot. And seriously, that mummy is too cute.

  1. This was such a cute anime! I love how the mummy was basically a puppy! And the way the mummy dried up whenever the main character went away because it cried so much, that was so adorable, and kind of sad!

  2. Great review! I’ve been watching clips of this, but I’m waiting for more episodes to air. 🙂 The mummy is just too adorable to ignore. It’s one of those anime that you want to watch just for the fun of it.

  3. Haha…okay I’m actually really becoming curious here now. I’m very tempted to just give this a watch just to see how cute that mummy really is lol 😂😂

  4. That knife sequence, got me all awww and he was cutting the cucumber, sitting all happy. I have to say my favorite part was like Sora got his evil aura out and ask Tazuki if he wanted to see what happen when a human was skinned alive 😂
