How To Keep A Mummy Episode 3: The Word Cute Will Not Appear In This Review Even Though Mii-Kun is The Cutest Ever

Review:

Another episode of this show that seems to know exactly what its strength is and ensures every scene plays to it. However, we’re still kind of left with no plot other than the day to day life of Sora looking after a mummy and instead focusing on particular incidents. While episode 2 was the Mii-Kun went to school this is the Sora get’s sick and then gives it to Mii-Kun episode.

We did however finally get introduced to the other person living in the house though it still isn’t clear if Kaede is an older sister, some other relative, or just a random person living in the house. Still, it made for some interesting interaction between human characters taking some of the screen time away from the bandage blob who has completely stolen the spot of my favourite pet or mascot in an anime.

Okay, other than the general feel good aesthetic that this show generates, this is really the usual boy gets sick with cold and needs nursing kind of thing. While there are a few laughs and chuckles along the way, it is a pretty standard episode including the serving of porridge (which apparently requires things to be cut with a knife to make so I’m wondering what the porridge includes and whether I’ve been making it wrong my entire life – probably given it tastes pretty awful when I make it and would be the last thing I’d want to eat when sick).

And yet, I’m kind of happy just watching this despite it really not being my usual kind of thing and despite the lack of an overall story (and usually by episode 3 the lack of a story is a death sentence for an anime on my watch list). And look, I made it to the end of this episode review with using that word.

  1. This is such an adorable series. I can’t wait until the other small adorable characters shown in the OP are introduced so that it can be even more adorable.

  2. FYI it’s not porridge she’s making but rice gruel, a sort of very thick rice “stew” which is a staple “sick day food” since it’s nutritious, easy to eat (not much chewing required) and digest. The cutting is involved because of the garnishes (leek, or whatever else you might have at home).

    1. I know. Mummy and cute shouldn’t go together. Mummy in a hat and a scarf should not be adorable. And yet, that picture just speaks for itself.

  3. This show will be the death of me…in a good way  if there is any good way in death. I think I squealed when I saw Mii-kun with the hat and the scarf… I didn’t thought he could be even more adorable than how he is now. Looking forward the next episode since they will finally introduced a new familar/critter/thing.

  5. That first picture that starts your review is so cu…..erm…adorable 😊😊 I haven’t given this one a watch yet, but with every new post you write for it…I get tempted more and more 😀

    1. He is so cute, isn’t he? (I had to say it.)
      I might wish the story had a bit more story going on here, but rally Mii-Kun just wins for being adorable.

I'd love to know what you think.
