    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!

    Episode 1

    Treat it like a pet.

    Sora's father sure is a crazy guy there sending his son all sorts of weird things, and he just sent him the weirdest one of all in that tiny mummy. Pretty funny seeing Sora trying to figure out how to take care of Mii-kun seeing that nobody sane person has that for a pet. And while he could turn Mii-kun into BB-8 with a bath, that's just not healthy for him. The comedy is pretty decent here, but in other places it just falls flat while there are stretches of dull stuff that was quite boring to sit through.

    So with that, usual trial rules apply and I'll keep going, but so far it hasn't really done anything to stand out.

      Re: Episode 1

      That is an impossibly adorable "mummy" that makes no sense in so many ways that it's obvious you're not supposed to think about any of it. And that's fine; this is all very cute and funny, so I have no problem with continuing to watch it for the time being. Maybe it won't amount to much, but it seems like an enjoyable viewing experience at the very least.

        Episode 2

        The mummy comes to school.

        Seeing that Mii-kun couldn't survive being home alone while Sora was at school that he had to come. While Tazuki is keeping things under wraps, in comes Motegi having spotted him and wanting to take him home. Good idea: making a plush of him so that she believes that the doll is a plush. Bad idea: putting the real Mii-kun out there. And by chance, the real one is taken. Pretty funny seeing it being chased out of the vents by a rat, but in the end the secret is kept under wraps. Speaking of which, Tazuki is curious as to what's under those bandages, but that's something that is for nobody to know about.

        Well, this has been pretty funny, but I can't see much upwards mobility with a show like this. In any case, its trial continues before I decide whether to wrap it up or toss it out.

          Okay, this is really going nowhere, and is just getting more and more boring as it goes on. I can't see myself getting anything out of this at any point. I'll have to call it quits for this one.

            Episode 3

            In sickness or in health.

            Kaede comes out of her room at long last, and she's having quite a fun time with Mii-kun. Sora sure is surrounded by a bunch of weird things there, and her aunt just adds to it all seeing that she's putting on the gas mask to enter Sora's room while he's sick. Next time, another tiny animal comes into Sora's life.

            So while that was a better episode than last time, I pretty much had decided to write off this show seeing that it's one of those where it's funny the first time, but not so much moving forward with it. So that's a wrap for this show.
