When high school student Sora Kashiwagi finds himself staring down a mysterious oversized package sent to him by his self-proclaimed "adventurer" father, the last thing he expects is for it to be opened from the inside... by a little mummy so small it can fit in the palm of his hand!
If you can't handle puking your brains out from the adorableness, then do not attempt to watch this show. This season has 2 animes that I just can't get through without squealing at least twice. Gakuen Babysitters and this. I am completely dedicated to this mummy. I will go to the ends of the Earth to guarantee that I can hear his little feet go pitter patter.
I'll admit, the art style isn't particularly nice to look at. Honestly, I'd say it's the worst part of the show. But it only takes about 2 seconds for me to be immediately immersed into the world of
this damn mummy. I'm expecting this anime to take a dark turn due to the fact that the father always brings home cursed objects and the intro seems to hint at a dark past with all 4 main characters, but I would be perfectly okay with nothing but relaxing fluff because I adore the characters in this show. It is not an anime for those looking to have their brain power maximized. It is not an anime for those looking to have their ears serenaded. It is well and truly, a low budget anime made simply to make you smile. And it's doing a damn good job at it.
Miira no Kaikata is cute and sweet and adorable and that's pretty much it. That isn't a bad thing--I'm a sucker for ridiculous adorableness and have enjoyed every episode to date--but if you're looking for something with an interesting story/strong character development/etc, Miira no Kaikata is not that kind of series. If you just want something that will make you go "awww" many times per episode, then Miira no Kaikata is the series you're looking for. Also, I think this series would work better if episodes were 12 minutes instead of 24.
P.S. I don't particularly like Funko Pops in general, but I would kill for
a Mii-Kun Funko Pop.
Another SoL-themed anime, and really gotta love this show to bits, alongside Gakuen Babysitters, in the form of toy-ish mummies and babies respectively!
As typical as the parents aren't around at home, Sora Kashiwagi, a high school student, receives a lifesize mummy coffin from his adventurous dad, only to realize that it houses a small adorable mummy called Mii-kun, along with a thick instruction manual on how Mii-kun works (like it's insane that Mii-kun NEEDS so much instructions)! But the charm of it is really how it boils down to the interactions between Sora and his friends along with Mii-kun and the other critters.
So Sora X
Mii-kun is a learning work in progress, because there's so much to discover about Mii-kun, its habits, quirks and such stuff, and seriously I'll squeal at when Mii-kun does something that tugs my heartstrings and that Sora has to always help this little critter, so much love!
The development of Sora's friends and critters does help, but for now it remains a mystery.
Knowing 8-bit's style when it comes to replicating original source materials, it has been always hits or misses, but in this case, it quite exceptional. Good drawings that fit within the confines of how the show is meant to be, good job overall.
The OST here is good, and like the Winter 2018 music trope, the OP is good but the ED is way better. The music helps out in scenes to fluctuate the intensity of how our characters are involved, and really nothing much to say, other than exceptionality here also.
It's cuteness overflowing, it's light-hearted, it's Mii-kun! Always smile with a bright grin on the face and enjoy for what's found here.
This anime to me is like the mint candies you get at the end of a meal that cleanses your palette. It makes you feel refreshed and ready to watch other shows. The show feels decently paced (it would be much better if it was 12 minutes vs its 24 minutes). But, I can't find many other faults currently. I don't think this series has any more room to really grow besides adding the rest of characters, and possibly an original ending.
If you're looking for a cute show that gets its marks from its good use of the chibi/moe artstyle this, so far, has the
makings to be a good one.
