posted on by Jennifer Sherman

Fans of the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls franchise may appreciate a new work that will transform popular existing animal characters into human-like characters. Tama & Friends: Uchi no Tama Shirimasen ka? (Tama & Friends: Do You Know My Tama?), the Tama and Friends short anime that premiered in October, is getting an anthropomorphization project.

Tama & Friends: Uchi no Tama Shirimasen ka?'s booth at AnimeJapan revealed the project, tentatively titled "Uchi Tama!?," on Saturday. Here are the anthropomorphized versions of the Tama and Friends characters:











Here are the original animal characters as they appear in Tama & Friends: Uchi no Tama Shirimasen ka? and the 1993 Tama and Friends television anime:

The official website teases that the project is "Coming Soon...?" The project got an early start at AnimeJapan on Saturday. Real-world human versions of Tama passed out related booklets at the event.

Sony Creative Products created the Tama and Friends characters in 1983. The anime franchise began with an original video anime series in 1989, followed by the Sanchome no Tama: Uchi no Tama Shirimasenka? television anime in 1994 and the anime film San-chōme no Tama: Onegai! Momo-chan o Sagashite!! in 1993. A spinoff television anime, Tama & Friends: Sagase! Mahō no Punipuni Stone, aired in 2006. 4Kids Entertainment licensed the original television anime in 2001 and aired an English-dubbed version in North America.
