Sora and Shiro are a pair of gamers that collectively go by the name Blank, and Blank never loses. Because of this they have become quite bored and are slightly interested when they are challenged to a game of chess.

While episode 2 was the … Continue reading How To Keep A Mummy Episode 3: The Word Cute Will Not Appear In This Review Even Though Mii-Kun is The Cutest Ever
Review: This one is kind of hard to review given the characters kind of serve their purpose, it looks kind of average, the music is nothing special but not bad, and there's basically no overall plot and yet it is just too adorable for words. While watching I'm not feeling bored because I'm just kind … Continue reading How To Keep A Mummy Episode 2: There’s No Real Story But It Remains Pretty Cute
