Uruno, a useless wolf, is on the road searching for a new place to call home. He soon comes upon a whole forest full of "useless animals"—that is, animals that don't live up to their species' usual character. After a short fight with the smoking, bad-tempered rabbit, Usahara, Uruno decides that he wants to move on... but changes his mind upon meeting Chiiko, a clumsy cheetah girl. It's love at first sight for Uruno, and after deciding to stay for her, he continues to hope that even though he's a good-for-nothing, he'll win her over someday. That is, if living with the other strange residents of the forest—including the aforementioned smoking rabbit, a sake-drinking unicorn, a near-sighted eagle, an orca that cannot swim, and a shy pegasus—doesn't get to him first.

Anime about "useless" animals. What's so interesting?

Personally I was amazed of how the tempers of the characters were represented. These tempers are so typical: tsundere & loser; cynic & egoist; clumsy & cheerful; melancholic & laid-back and many others. All these features are distinctive for different types of people (or animals =) ).

But they were mixed up, so we can see agressive hare and shy wolf... And of course a great variety of situations whish were created by this delicious mix.

Only one disadvantage: this anime is so short!..

As the name suggests this anime is about a load of useless animals, or shall I say cute people dressed up in animal suits, as cute animals.

The episodes are random and there isn't really a storyline. It is about these animals being useless and dumb and how their lifestyle in the forest.

Not much to say about the sounds. The opening song is cute though.

The animations are cute and funny, a rabbit holding a fag isn't your typical child anime.

Overall it's not bad for 26 episodes each episode lasting only 6 minutes. It is just to waste time though, if I was 10 ...
