A promotional video for television anime of Koi’s Gochūmon wa Usagi Desu ka? (Is the order a rabbit?) manga began streaming on Saturday. The video introduces the main characters and cast. The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX on April 10.
In the four-panel manga, the main character Cocoa (a pun of “hot cocoa”) arrives at the cafe Rabbit House one day, excited for rabbits. She actually all but lives in that café. She meets lots of different girls there, including a tiny and cool girl named Chino (from “cappucino”), a tough and soldier-esque girl named Rize (“Thé des Alizés” tea), a spacey and quintessentially Japanese girl named Chiya (“Uji matcha” tea), and the ordinary but dignified Syaro (“Kilimanjaro” coffee).
Hiroyuki Hashimoto (Angel Beats!, The Devil is a Part-Timer! episode director) will be directing the anime at the studio White Fox (Steins;Gate, The Devil is a Part-Timer!). Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Hetalia The Beautiful World, Miss Monochrome, Walkure Romanze) is in charge of the series scripts. Yousuke Okuda (Sword Art Online, Hanasaku Iroha: Home Sweet Home animation director) is designing the characters. The singing unit Petit Rabbit’s, composed of the main cast, is performing the opening theme song “Daydream Café.”
Koi began the manga in the magazine in 2011, and Houbunsha shipped the second compiled book volume in February.
