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:
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.
