Need a job done right? Call the Zenryoku Engineering Company! Staffed by hip-hop loving boss Oyakata, aggressive Ojou, babysitter-turned-worker Minarai and a variety of other motivated rabbits, Zenryoku Engineering Company lives by a simple motto: do our very best! From finding old fossils to building a bridge to help a young rabbit find his way home, there's nothing the team can't build or handle!
Usa is a regular rabbit; he has normal interests, his fur isn’t exceptionally special in any way, and he enjoys watching superhero cartoons on TV. However, when this young bunny dons his super-special monkey costume and eats a banana, he becomes the ally of justice, Usaru-san! Now, for just one hour each day, he travels the town in order to find those in need of help. Whether he’s clearing the streets of litter or retrieving a young girl’s balloon, no job is too big or too small for the brave hero, Usaru-san!
Zenryoku Usagi and Usaru-san are two peas in a pod - regardless of the fact that they both have rabbits, they are super cute, short, and will please the same audience.
If you like comedy anime featuring cute bunnies acting akin to humans, then both of these series are for you. Zenryoku Usagi is more work-focused, but both are good for some light and easy watching.
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!
OK, so at first glance this may seem like an odd recommendation; one series focuses on useful construction bunnies, the other is literally entitled 'Useless Animals'. However, both of these series are light-hearted and motivational series. Zenryoku focuses more on building up confidence and completing a job to the best of your (possibly limited) ability, whereas Damekko Doubutsu looks at finding your rightful place in the world - even if you are a bit useless. If you liked the upbeat and cute aspect of one of these series then you may well enjoy the other.
Pan-Talon, pilot of the Panda-Z mecha, lives a colorful life. He engages in skirmishes against Skull Panda and the evil Warunimal army, plays Old Maid with his buddies, and consumes meals made out of batteries (for what else would a robot eat?). Meanwhile, at the enemy HQ, the Warunimal captains are more interested in finding out what their leader looks like under his cape than they are about devising evil plots. Through a variety of situations the forces collide, with both sides suffering design faults and neither taking the fighting seriously!
Panda Z and Zenryoku Usagi are REMARKABLY similar. Each involves cute creatures doing rather adult things, whether it's fighting in animal-shaped tanks or building structures. They have essentially the IDENTICAL feel and I strongly believe fans of one would like the other.
