Aniplex of America describes the show as:
One day, Miu Takigawa suddenly receives a letter notifying her that she has been chosen as a member of a brand-new project. Half in disbelief, she heads over to the location stated on the letter. There, she finds seven other girls summoned there in the same fashion. The girls behold a giant, top-secret facility. They stand in bewilderment as they are told:
“You are going to debut for a major record label as an idol group.”
A new kind of idol, never-before-seen, is about to be born here…
Uchitama?! Have you seen my Tama?
Kiyoshi Matsuda (Kumamiko – Girl meets Bear, Kakegurui Season 2) will direct the series at studios MAPPA and Lapin Track, with Mai Otsuka (Non Non Biyori, Shakugan no Shana) providing character designs. Kimiko Ueno (The Royal Tutor) is in charge of series composition.
Aniplex of America describes the project as:
“Tama & Friends: Have you seen my Tama?” debuted in 1983 as a popular character on stationery and accessories. Tama, the beloved neighborhood cat who is known for the patch on his forehead and yellow ears, has now taken on a human form! Featuring Tama and his quirky friends, Uchitama is a brand-new type of heartwarming anime that might even be the new definition of kawaii!?
In a city somewhere in Japan, there’s a flyer often seen on Third Street with a picture of a cat with a kinked tail, bearing the words: “Have you seen Tama?” A young boy gazes at the flyer, but he has fluffy ears on his head…!? Watch the dogs and cats from Third Street take on a human form and get up to some mischief.
Take a peek into the wonderful lives of Tama and his friends.
