How To Keep a Mummy Episode 12: Cheesy and Yet Pulls It Off

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

How To Keep a Mummy Episode 11: Part of Me Wants To Say About Time

How to Keep a Mummy has been a super cute anime but with the promise of curses and problems with monsters raised in the first episode and then very seldom thought about since, it is nice to see the show bring that back in for the penultimate episode. Sora and friends inadvertently trespass at a … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 11: Part of Me Wants To Say About Time

How To Keep a Mummy Episode 10: A Return To Adorable Formula

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

How To Keep a Mummy Episode 9: The Oni-Child Crosses The Line

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 Episode 8: It’s Monster Day Care and It Is Soooo Cute!

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.

How To Keep a Mummy Episode 7: Barking Mummies and Dream Eating Baku

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.

How To Keep a Mummy Episode 6: A Little Knowledge Can Be Adorable

Review: Conny, Isao and Mii-Kun together are making a truly cute team. As much as I didn't like Conny's introductory episode, he adds an interesting dynamic to the trio and of course presents several moments of conflit for a show that might otherwise get a little bit sleepy and dull. But as much as the … Continue reading How To Keep a Mummy Episode 6: A Little Knowledge Can Be Adorable

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

Review: Okay, so the child-oni turned out to be a bust last week but the addition of a back-pack sized dragon gave this show a nice boost back into being the single most adorable thing ever.

How To Keep A Mummy Episode 4: And Without The Star What is Left?

Review: My previous episode reviews have left no doubt that about the only thing this show has going for it is the single cutest mummy in existence.
