The anime I am reviewing is called How to Keep A Mummy by Kakeru Utsugi. The main character, Sora Kashiwagi, is a student whose father is an adventurer. Sora gets gifts from his father periodically, but he’s learned to be cautious when accepting them due to bad experiences. One day, Sora gets a large package in the mail, which turns out to be a sarcophagus. At first, he is mildly terrified, but when he opens it, it’s a tiny, harmless mummy smaller than a shoe. There’s just one thing not quite right… It appears to be alive.
Sora later on befriends the mummy, naming it Mii-Kun. He tells his friend, Tazuki Kamiya, about Mii-Kun but then Tazuki ends up… messing with Mii-Kun, such as trying to unwind his bandages, curious about what’s inside. Tazuki is sort of odd, and dark. He later stumbles upon an oni child, but tries to shoo it away do to his past of not being able to save a creature before. But, he takes him in, and can come off as cold, but really cares about the oni child that he names Conny.
The two of them go to school the next morning and Sora brings along his new pal, Mii-Kun. They run into Asa Motegi one of their classmates. Asa’s a happy girl who is terrified of lizards, but then later she meets some sort of dragon creature who is just a bit bigger than Mii-Kun and ends up keeping it.
One day at school, Tazuki and Sora hear rumors about a violent student. The student, Daichi Tachiaki, is actually just suffering from lack of sleep and nightmares. Sora tries to help Daichi and ends up befriending him. He gives Daichi a Baku drawing (a sheep like creature that rids people of bad dreams) to lore in the creature. Daichi keeps the Baku and names it Mukumuku.
My opinion: I loved this anime. Platypus and I were looking for anime to watch and she found it right around Halloween time, which in my opinion is perfect. I really wish there were more episodes.
