Wasn’t feeling too wonderful this morning, and what better than a dose of kawai Damekko Doubutsu to cheer me up?! :)
Damekko Doubutsu is exactly what it sounds like. A bunch of useless animals in the forest, that don’t match their steriotypes. A wolf that can’t catch a bunny, a cheetah who falls over all the time, an evil unicorn, a smoking bunny and more! The story focuses on the adventures of Uruno the useless wolf character. At just 5 minutes an episode (that’s including the 1:30 min intro music) it’s a quick enjoyable watch!
Intro music and pictures
I love this intro, I’m quite happy to watch it all the way through and bounce along. In fact, the steel drum music in the background of the anime is just so cute I find myself bouncing side to side to it and grinning every episode… *^_^*
Usahara – kick ass rabbit.
Uruno – useless wolf. He seriously needs a cuddle.
Takaoka – short-sighted owl.
Chiiko – clumsy cheetah.
Yunihiko – evil unicorn.
Kumanee – trading brown bear.
Kumakawa – genius dancing bear.
I felt so sorry for Uruno I wanted to rush in there and help him find some white clover.
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!! Kawai :)
Overall, something cute to make you happy. I relaly want to grab Uruno out of the screen and keep him as a pet! The only thing I’m not keen on is when their faces sometimes turn to human style, I really prefer the animal faces!
The Damekko Doubutsu website has the cutest map feature on it!
I want big cuddly soft toy versions of Usaharu and Uruno, there were little soft toys released with the dvd, but not very big!
I’m going to watch ‘Garfield:The Movie’ now…oh I’m feeling so grown up today ;)
