I'm no stranger to discussing the appeal of cute or kawaii characters in anime (previous posts including "Just Add Cute" and "Is Being Kawaii Enough To Make You Watch an Anime?") however today I really do just want to discuss the Winter 2020 anime Bofuri also known as "Itai no wa Iya nano de Bougyoryoku … Continue reading Would Bofuri work if the protagonist wasn’t a cute female character?
My Roommate is a Cat Episode 3 Review: Subaru's editor has cats in his brain and uses Haru as an excuse to intrude on Subaru at every opportunity. Meanwhile, Subaru is perplexed by the cat's seemingly inexplicable behaviour. Can a loner cope with so many things going on?
My Roommate is a Cat Episode 2: This week we see more of the cat taking over Subaru's life and then the cat is named, whether it understands that or not.
There's a mini-mummy, a back-pack sized dragon, a tiny oni and a whole bunch of other pint sized monsters all in one adorable anime package. What more could you want? Review: When Sora received a coffin from his father who was travelling through Egypt, he suspects the worst and apparently with good reason. His recounts … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Series Review: So Much Cuteness In One Little Package
This anime continued to play to its strengths all the way through and while it also pulled a family/friends beat all kind of ending it did it with the kind of earnestness that allows you to smile and just accept that is the kind of show you were watching. To be honest, it is the … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 12: Cheesy and Yet Pulls It Off

Sora and friends inadvertently trespass at a … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 11: Part of Me Wants To Say About Time
After last week's average but not particularly bad episode of this anime, How To Keep A Mummy strikes back with an incredibly adorable return to the formula that made the first episodes of this season so irresistible. And in saying that, what I mean is they introduce a new player into the group who at … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 10: A Return To Adorable Formula
Review: Anime has a lot of heart breaking moments that really capture the spirit of what it is to be human, to be alone, and to suffer loss. How To Keep A Mummy doesn't quite manage to land this lofty emotional goal but still delivers something that is cute in its very gentle and obvious … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 9: The Oni-Child Crosses The Line
Review: I will admit, my interest in the story this week was a bit hit and miss. The kids realise Connie has been wandering during the day and decide that the monster children need supervision while they are at school and so they turn to a local shrine god to babysit. It is as cute … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 8: It’s Monster Day Care and It Is Soooo Cute!
Review: Last week I commented that the growing cast 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. I love it when a show knows exactly what its selling point is and doesn't … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 7: Barking Mummies and Dream Eating Baku
