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 was not a spectacular beginning for this fantasy anime and I'm thinking anyone with sense dropped it straight up, but I'd love to know your thoughts if you watched this.

It is as cute … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 8: It’s Monster Day Care and It Is Soooo Cute!
