“Kashiwagi Sora is living a normal high school student life, when his “adventurer” father sends him a mummy from his travels in Egypt! Sora balks at the letter from his crazy dad (“I found a cool mummy, so I decided to leave it with you, son!”) at first, but the mummy that emerges from inside the huge coffin is a mere 12 centimeters tall–small enough to fit in the palm of his hand. Not only that, it’s shy, a crybaby and most of all, heckin’ cute. And so, Sora and ends up keeping the mummy, naming his new little buddy “Mii-kun.” But living with a mummy might be easier said than done!” -Crunchyroll
We watched this for Anime Night in March and oh my glob. This is the cutest anime I’ve seen in a LONG time. I was skeptical about showing it, I knew it’d be age appropriate, but not sure if it’d be overly cutesy (like Bananya, I love Bananya, but it can be an acquired taste for some, definitely). My worries were completely unfounded.
If you’re in a bad mood from a bad day full of awful badness, this will make it so much better. It’s a little ray of sunshine on a cold, uncaring world.
It’s heartwarming, funny and absolutely endearing. It will definitely make you want to own a little Mii-kun of your own! I know I dooo. Watch it for free on Crunchyroll.com today! You seriously won’t be disappointed. What are you still doing here? GO WATCH.
