Crunchyroll Adds 'Tama of the 3rd District -Have you seen my Tama?' Anime to Catalog
posted on by Alex Mateo
Crunchyroll announced on Tuesday that it has added the Tama of the 3rd District -Have You Seen My Tama? (Sanchome no Tama: Uchi no Tama Shirimasenka?) anime to its catalog. The company began streaming the first two episodes, and it will stream future episodes on Tuesdays at 4:00 p.m. EST.
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.
The franchise inspired the Uchi Tama!? project, which transforms the existing animal characters into human-like characters. Uchitama?! Have you seen my Tama? (Uchi Tama!? ~ Uchi no Tama Shirimasen ka?~), the anime based on the project, premiered on Fuji TV's Noitamina block in January. Aniplex of America began streaming the anime on FunimationNow in January and on Crunchyroll in February.
