“How to Keep a Mummy” Anime Gets January 2018 Premiere


So, how do you keep a mummy?

The latest volume of Kakeru Utsugi’s How to Keep a Mummy (Miira no Kaikata) announced that the manga’s anime adaptation will hit Japanese TV networks TBS and BS-TBS in January 2018.

The series was first announced in June, on Comico’s website. The series will be directed by Kaori (Yuyushiki, Bottom Biting Bug) at studio 8-Bit, with Takahiro Kishida (Baccano!, Durarara!!) providing character designs. Deko Akao (Anonymous Noise, Flying Witch) is in charge of series composition, while Atsushi Nasuda is attached as producer.

Crunchyroll currently distributes the How to Keep a Mummy manga. They describe the series as:

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!

Kakeru Utsugi launched the How to Keep a Mummy manga on the Comico app in 2014. Futabasha shipped the first book to retailers in February 2016. The fifth book hit bookstores earlier today.
