In the Crunchroll news today they mention a new anime where cute girls are reimaged as race horses Uma Musume - Pretty Derby. In the past we have had anime where people have been Anthropomorphized (i.e. reimaged) as something else. Right now I can recall the following:

1. Upotte: http://www.crunchyroll.com/upotte Guns reimaged as girls
2. Arpeggio of Blue Steel: http://www.crunchyroll.com/arpeggio-of-blue-steel Girls as mental models of "Fog" warships
3. Kan Colle: http://www.crunchyroll.com/kancolle Girls with the spirit of warships
4. Asura Crying: http://www.crunchyroll.com/asura-cryin Girls with a strange relationship with robots

Can you think of any others? (like cats?)
Are there ones you would like to see in the future? In the interest of equality you can include proposed shows where guys are reimaged also.

So the horses will be portrayed as human girls?

Hetalia Axis Powers had nations personified as humans.

I wonder what Prince Eugene would have thought about a ship named after him being portrayed as a teenage girl. Then again, he probably wouldn't have been that happy that a ship named after him was built by Nazis either.

Strike Witches: Reimaging of famous fighter pilots during the World War
Kemono Friends: Reimaging of animals.
I guess the Fate series too. There's more, but that's all I can think of at the moment.

I'm still hoping for a US civil war anime that re-imagines the leaders on both sides as cute girls.

I'd imagine there might be one about the founding of the US Government, with the founding fathers as cute girls before that.

Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson will always be getting into cat fights

It's probably just a matter of time. We already have the Chinese warring states done http://www.crunchyroll.com/koihime-musou and Japanese Nobunaga http://www.crunchyroll.com/nobunagun


Note: If you are more interested in the Chinese warring states (Three Kingdoms) story a MUST SEE is Red Cliff https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/red_cliff/ It is a Chinese live action fictionalized version of the battles. There are three hour and six hour versions out there. Be sure to see the six hour one. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Cliff_%28film%29

For Nobunaga, I would think either of these would be more applicable:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/the-ambition-of-oda-nobuna
http://www.crunchyroll.com/battle-girls-time-paradox

Or even this one (the only one I haven't completed yet):
http://www.crunchyroll.com/sengoku-collection-parallel-world-samurai

Nobunaga seems to be a rather popular gender-bender target.

If you mention Kaiju Girls, then you ought to mention Robot Girls Z, too.

The mobile KRPG Sid Story has done this, not only for Civil War leaders (e.g. Lee, Lincoln, etc.), but for the Founding Fathers, too.

Touken Ranbu is historic swords as boys.

There's like seventy of them, and they range from super manly

to super moe


There's also painters as boys, months as boys, scents as boys... yeah, they've moved on to things-as-boys now.

Since the article on Crunchroll is now getting buried in the latest news to be posted, I am providing a link to it here:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2017/09/11/staff-for-racehorse-girl-uma-musume-pretty-derby-anime-listed

Here is a (animated) song that goes with it.

Here is live action idol group singing the same song in cosplay outfits

Just finished that last week. It's my kind of insane. I thought I was doing pretty good on the references, but then found NyaruReferences and discovered what a rank amateur I am.
