How To Keep a Mummy Episode 5: Dragon + Mummy = Too Cute


Okay, so the child-oni turned out to be a bust last week in How to Keep a Mummy but the addition of a back-pack sized dragon gave this show a nice boost back into being the single most adorable thing ever. Not to mention, despite introducing new cast members, Mii-Kun managed a decent amount of screen time in this episode and we finally see Sora considering his loneliness and history a little bit more seriously.

How To Keep a Mummy recovered after a small downward turn.

Add in that Motegi is a fun supporting cast member in her own right and I’m glad she got a bit more of a role this time round rather than just being an obstacle for hiding Mii-Kun’s existence. Her reaction to lizards and then the dragon were also pretty amusing even if they were completely overblown even by this anime’s standards.


However, this show wouldn’t be itself if it didn’t bring the two together in the end. I would like to know more about Tazuki’s deal with the dragon (though we know he did get scarred previously the details were a bit limited).


All and all, this was a nice recovery for the show and we’re back to blissfully cuteness.

  1. I had to drop this as it couldn’t hold my attention for 20+ minutes. Reading this is the rough equivalent of condensing it into a 3 minute episode and I still have time for the cute ed. Thanks! Dragon pics appreciated.

  2. Now they’re just adding more random cute stuff in it. Ahhhh! I’m just playing.

    Also, am I the only person who thinks the dragon looks like a miniature mix between a Dragonite and a Charizard?

    1. Yeah, oni child was a real miss both in cuteness and in story. The dragon worked but they’ve still got half a season so I wonder if they can get more hits than misses in terms of cuteness.
