High school student Sora Kashiwagi is accustomed to receiving bizarre presents from his father, who is on an expedition around the world. Unfortunately, these gifts have been nothing but nightmares. As a result, when his father sends him a huge package from Egypt, Sora prepares himself for the worst, only to be greeted by Mii-kun—a cute, pint-sized mummy! While initially wary, Sora soon learns that Mii-kun is harmless, a delicate creature yearning for attention.

Throughout their amusing day-to-day lives, the unlikely pair meet other people with unique pets, while also strengthening their bond together. Although keeping a pet is a difficult task, Sora is set on caring for the lovable Mii-kun.

A mummy, an oni, a dragon, and a baku. Sounds like a recipe for a mess doesn't it? But rather it's the opposite. Despite the supernatural beasts that make up the main creatures of the show, the center of the show is down to earth, a love story between pet and owner.

Each of the pet and owner pairs are helped by coming together and being with each other. In many cases the humans are able to grow by being with the pets and caring for them, and the same can be said about the animals. Whether they need someone to care for them or someone read more

Super adorable anime!!!!! I'm so glad there is finally an anime adaption after waiting for two years since I started reading the manga on comico. All of the little creatures are so cute and it makes your heart melt, espeically Mii-kun and Isao. This anime is basically mini adventures of Sora and his friends. The plot is simple and starts with main character Sora receiving a package from his father. Inside is Mii-Kun!!! From there more characters are introduced with their partner creatures. The bonds between creature and their human companion is illustrated in this anime. We do get to see other unique creatures who read more

The season passed and this anime sadly got no hype whatsoever at any point, but damn I would be lying if I said I didn't love it! The easiest way to describe Miira no Kaikata is “diabetes bomb” and it's definitely one of the shows that made me smile the most of just how freaking adorable it can get.

This anime starts with Sora, a boy who already got used to get dangerous things from his adventurer dad, and the shock that his next surprise is not a mortal monster that should have been kept sealed instead of sent as a present to his read more

SoL-genre themed anime are the hottest trend in Winter 2018, and Miira no Kaikata is no exception: a sight of humans with critters as their individual and respective companions that fit well with them.

What happens when your parents send you something from overseas that's an oddity? Well, prepare your hearts for Mii-kun the mummy that's cute and adorable as well as the other critters!

The show does what is done best: cuteness overload bearing to the point that it's nice and smiles around to see the critters (Conny, Isao, Mukumuku) relating to Mii-kun, and not forgetting their owners too.

It begins with Sora Kashiwagi, with his "adventurer" read more
