Plot Summary: 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 aformentioned smoking rabbit, a sake-drinking unicorn, a near-sighted owl, a travelling saleswoman bear, and a shy pegasus --doesn't get to him first.

A series I saw a long time ago and decided to re-watch. It's about a wolf, who acts like a timid rabbit, making him a 'useless animal'. So he's sent to a forest (The 'useless forest' XD) to live with other useless animals (i.e. a wolf like rabbit, a slow/klutzy cheetah, ect.). There are about 26 episodes, and each one is about 5 minutes long.

The characters are all dressed in animal outfits, so they all look really cute XD.

I'd post the OP and ED but my school's computer blocks YouTube, so I can't right now.
