Last week I commented that the growing cast of How to Keep a Mummy were so cute together. This week adds what I believe to be the final little creature, throws the dog in and actually gives us a photo op moment. Kind of perfect.
How To Keep a Mummy embraces its cuteness.
I love it when a show knows exactly what its selling point is and doesn’t try to pretend it is something it isn’t. This show is cute and they deliver cute. They deliver it pretty well in most episodes, and they know when a particular moment of cute is worth revisiting (another round of barking Mii nearly did me in from cuteness overload).
This episode of How To Keep a Mummy brings Daichi into the mix. He’s in the same grade as Sora and we have seen him around the school before, but this episode looks at how he is isolated due to his violent sleepwalking and horrible nightmares.
Of course, Sora being Sora decides to get involved and eventually we have the four humans and the four monsters all playing nice at the end. It isn’t particularly deep, but it doesn’t really need to be. This episode was just great fun.

When Mii was running back and forth on the roof just doing his own thing I died. I died from cuteness.
He was adorable as he seemed to be trying to get their attention and yet not get their attention while he killed time. So cute.
