Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
Cocoa arrives at the cafe Rabbit House one day, excited for rabbits. She actually all but lives in that cafe. She meets lots of different girls there, including a tiny and cool girl named Chino, a tough and soldier-esque girl named Rize, a spacey and quintessentially Japanese girl named Chiyo, and the ordinary but dignified Sharo.
The second season of the Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka? anime will air each Saturday from October 10 on Tokyo MX at 10:30pm JST, during the Fall/Autumn 2015 anime season. Further information about the anime will be revealed very soon.
