The fifth compiled book volume of Kakeru Utsugi‘s How to keep a mummy (Miira no Kaikata) manga revealed on Thursday that the manga’s upcoming television anime adaptation will premiere in January on TBS and BS-TBS.

Kaori (Yuyushiki, Bottom Biting Bug 2nd season) is directing the anime at studio 8-Bit. Deko Akao (Flying Witch, Noragami, Frame Arms Girl) is handling the series composition, and Takahiro Kishida (Welcome to the Ballroom, Madoka Magica, Durarara!!) is the character designer. Atsushi Nasuda is producing the anime.

Crunchyroll is releasing the manga digitally in English, and it describes the story:

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!

Utsugi launched the manga on the Comico app in 2014, and the first compiled book volume shipped in Japan in February 2016. Futabasha released the manga’s fourth compiled volume on May 12.
