    Episode 1:

    Well fuck me, this was the cutest fuckin' thing I've seen in ages. The mummy is so goddamn adorable I wanted to cuddle it for most of the episode. There's not much to this show's premise, but if they're going to be meeting cute versions of mythical creatures then I'm totally down with this.

    Oh my gah, so adorable. My heart melted every time Mii-kun did something cute as hell.

    Please please please be adorable like this for the rest of the show. My biggest concern is that this could get repetitive but right now I am so glad I coaxed ZK into watching it. This episode made me happy.

    I am seriously going to need a pint sized Dracula from this show at some point.

    From the OP it looks like most of the other mythical creatures they're going to meet are youkai, which should be fun if they're all cute and interact well with Mii-kun.

    It was basically cute and that's about it. Entertaining and Cute. Basically what You'd expect from a comedy driven show with cuteness appeal.

    One for the mummy:

    Reminds me of like a popper's penguins thing. Which is acceptable, I just hope it doesn't go from cute to stupid later.

    I mean not that it's not already stupid. My biggest concern is, what exactly the fuck was mummified to make this little bastard? I don't want to say fetus but maybe a fetus.

    I don't want to think about anymore so I'm going to guess it's some kind of small cat :D

    A small dead cat.

    Well I've ruined this for myself.

    Anyways it's good and slow. The sfx is what really is selling the cuteness.

    Really, everything in this show is cute. People and dog included. It's pretty aesthetically pleasing in a mellow sort of way. The lines are all very soft and the animation is subtle.

    It barked? A small dog?

    It doesn't have a mouth. Yet it is eating.

    Is it just assimilating the food into its being through its "face"? What kind of mutant...

    I'm kinda with Touka's less emo brother over here, what the heck is wrapped in there. We're never going to find out are we.
    That was decent as heck


    There's adorable dancing in the ending. That's an automatic +1 point.

    Well, I certainly don't regret picking this up. Man, I don't even give a fucking shit, if this is all there is, THE ADORBNESS IS MELTING MY FACE. I'd consider getting my own Mii-plushie.......they better sell those sometime.

    This made up for the previous frustration and grumpiness I was feeling earlier today. I'm also strongly considering picking up the Antarctica show as well, but I think I'll give that one another ep, and see where people sit with it.

    I saw it on Crunchyroll's facebook and now this is my favorite anime in the history of anime.

    Why's he dry?! What the fuck's going on around here. He better figure out what's up before it dries out again or i'm going to call mummy PETA.

    Fantastic, now he has a tiny shank. He's going to murder you in your tiny sleep. You mad fool.


    Most badass mummy owner of all time. Not even mad that he hit the wall, he saved the entire show just now with his face.



    What a champion of the people our MC is. I agree with mummy.

    I bet the paper reminds him of his parents, who were mummified with actual paper mache.

    Now's your chance 20% skrillex, time to find out what sort of mutant rodent is under those tissues.

    Uh oh he turned on his bishounen mode. The ultimate ability that forces sparkles out of your face pores. None can resist this ultimate technique.


    HAH what comes out when you skin a person. I like this guy.

    "As soon as my eyeball completely passes the layer my hair is on, i'll be strong enough to see through the bandages."

    Oh the second when he took the food

    Oh my god, mii-kun is reenacting a classic pokemon meme.


    Oh shit, you gotta pimp out that drawer. Mii aint stayin in no plain-ass desk, you gotta get a bed in there, maybe some snacks, shit will be LIT.

    Well i did see her taking the real one coming but whatever what an interesting hi-jink this will be.

    OH dang, mii has so much game, he even got brung into the girls changing room. What a boss. Mii-kun doesn't give a SHIT.


    At least he was ok in the end.
    This show is incredible.

    Mii kun's bizarre adventures, I honestly felt surprised, they didn't show any fanservice when he was in the girl's change room because that would've been such an easy opportunity, and it's so common in like every anime in the universe.

    Glad, they're keeping this show so pure.

    His gangsterness knows no bounds. He should start his own gang.

    Not only this, but the funniest moment in the episode was
    when they were looking for Mii and walked in on the boys changing and one the guys should "ecchi" in a girlish falsetto.

    This show is just face melting levels of cute. It's funny too. Now I'm curious how it's going to start bringing in other mythical creatures. There were a couple hints this episode that seem like it will start happening soon. If this becomes the adorable version of Natsume, I'd probably be able to say that I lived a fulfilling life.

    it took me exactly 2 hours to finish this episode, that's because i spent the whole time making gifs for avatars, and now i have a whole bunch to use and it's totally worth it.

    Episode 1 & 2:

    This is pure diabetes. I had to pause the video every five minutes so I can dive into my bed to roll around and hug my pillows while giggling like an insane ninny because this show is so Goddamn cute.

    Me, when Mii-kun cried himself up so much, he dried out:

    I have to say, a show about a cute pocket mummy, is kicking VE's ass in feels.
