Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka? (Is the order a rabbit?) is a comedy, slice of life, 4koma manga written and illustrated by Koi. The manga began in 2011 being published in Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Max magazine. To date a total of 5 volumes have been compiled and released in Japan. A 12 episode anime adaptation of the series was produced last year by White Fox (Steins;Gate, Akame ga Kill!) and was directed by Hiroyuki Hashimoto (Code Geass and Tiger & Bunny Episode Director). A second season of the anime aired in the Fall/Autumn 2015 anime season for 12 episodes.
Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
Kokoa Hoto is a positive and energetic girl who becomes friends with anyone in just three seconds. After moving in with the Kafuu family in order to attend high school away from home, she immediately befriends the shy and precocious granddaughter of Rabbit House cafe’s founder, Chino Kafuu, who is often seen with the talking rabbit, Tippy, on her head.
After beginning to work as a waitress in return for room and board, Kokoa also befriends another part-timer, Rize Tedeza, who has unusual behavior and significant physical capabilities due to her military upbringing; Chiya Ujimatsu, a waitress from a rival cafe who does everything at her own pace; and Sharo Kirima, another waitress at a different cafe who has the air of a noblewoman despite being impoverished.
A new episode of Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka? will be getting a limited theatrical release in May 2017. Further information about the anime will be revealed at a later date.
