Useless Animals (だめっこどうぶつ, Damekko Dōbutsu) is a Japanese manga series by Noriko Kuwata serialized in Manga Life since the November 2001 issue. It was later adapted into a comedy anime series on Kids Station for 26 episodes at 5-minutes each.
The story is about characters wearing animal costumes, but each does not live up to the standards of their species, making them outcasts who must live in the "Useless" Forest. The main character, Uruno, is a wolf who has the personality of a shy rabbit; meanwhile, his friend and foil, Usahara the rabbit, has a wolf-like dominance and aggression.
