Synopsis:

Uruno, a failure of a wolf, is currently traveling to find himself a new place to call home; but upon chancing across a rabbit, he attacks it only to realize that this particular rabbit is stronger than any predator! Soon afterwards he discovers that this entire forest he has come across is home to similar 'useless animals' that are atypical of their species. He decides to stick around when he meets his love interest in the form of a clumsy cheetah, and with his new friends, he meets the rest of the animals in the forest, causing much hijinx and fun in the process!

When I saw DD, I instantly thought of Hetalia in both anime and manga form.  Both are in a five minute format that showcases the interactions between a big variety of characters, with an emphasis on cuteness and lightheartedness.  They're also personifications - in Hetalia's case, the personifications are countries, and in DD we're watching some very unique animals.  Both animes have to deal with the foibles of 'useless' characters that don't behave as expected, with a lot of laughter in the process. 

reccaphoenix

Both of these series revolve around anthropomorphic gag characters interacting in hilarious ways, and both have a similar short format.  Hetalia may be more "educated" than Useless Animals, but they share a similar sense of fun.

Akazukin Chacha

Akazukin Chacha

But when her famous master and magician Seravi decides to send her to Magic School, things couldn't be better. Along with were-puppy Riiya, love-struck Shiine, Black Riding Hood Yakko-chan and other new friends, Chacha must survive both the evil forces which threaten the land and sadistic (yet still somehow caring) teachers alike!

Akazukin Chacha and Damekko Doubutsu both make jokes about incompetence and cluelessness, and both have a cast of cute young fantasy beings.  They also both are about making friends, with a minor theme of secret/unrequited love.

In both Animes the charectors are all Animals who can speak. Cute charectors and animation style. As in Useless animals, the animals are all misfits... and totaly unlike their own species. And in Arashi No Yori Ni, a forbidden relationship causes problems for all animal species.

They both have an animal theme. They both have adorable characters. Episodes that last 5 minutes or less. No plot line but still enjoyable

One day, Dejiko, Puchiko and the strange ball-shaped Gema-Gema crash land their UFO in the middle of Akihabara. Without a single yen to their name they have nowhere to go, but following an unexpected and generous offer from the manager of a nearby store, the trio begin working at the shop in exchange for renting the room upstairs. Alongside Dejiko’s self-confessed rival Rabi-en-Rose, as well as a mysterious bear that has mastered the ability to appear happy, sad, depressed and angry all at once, the insanity is only just beginning! From shooting window shoppers with Dejiko’s Laser Eye Beam and the appearance of a bizarre farting impostor, to a sudden attack on the city by Godzilla, life at Gamers is certainly livening up.

In both of these, the episodes are so short, that not much happens. But what does happen is quite funny. Also, all of the characters in each have an animal theme.
