Shiina (椎名 Shīna) is the protagonist of the Ōmagadoki Dōbutsuen manga series written and illustrated by Kouhei Horikoshi and is the director of the Oumagadoki Zoo. He's originally a human being but was cursed by the Ghost Rabbit and replaced his body as that of a rabbit. To release him out of his rabbit body, he has to create the most popular zoo in the world and must prove that he loves animals.
Shiina's face is the shape as that of a rabbit. He covers his rabbit body part with black clothes and a red stippled muffler and has red eyes. In his original form, he has white hair.
Shiina is mostly known as the lunatic rabbit with no feelings for another, only when one of his friends are in danger. He shows his true love for animals when one of his friends is getting hurt or kidnapped most of the times or went in trouble. Shiina listens to nobody, only to himself. His original body shows whenever he saves someone that is close to him, which shows that the Ghost Rabbit gives him hints to understand that, but he doesn't at most of the things. In his childhood he was always doing nonsense. Once he chased a rabbit in the forest and grabbed it by the ears. The ghost rabbit appeared, cursed a rabbit body on him and told him that he must create something that shows how much he loves animals. Shiina's mental age has stopped at that point, but he shows mature traits. At the time Shiina and Hana went to Oumagadoki City, Shiina takes several things for his collection at the zoo, but Hana returns the stuff. He then finds a traffic cone in which he finds pleasure. Since he became a rabbit, he has a craving for carrots, he even uses one as a cigar.
