The cover of the January issue of Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Max magazine is announcing on Tuesday that a television anime adaptation of Koi's Gochūmon wa Usagi Desu ka? (Is the order a rabbit?) manga has been green-lit.
In the four-panel manga, the main character Kokoa (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 Lize (“Thé des Alizés” tea), a spacey and quintessentially Japanese girl named Chiyo (“Uji matcha” tea), and the ordinary but dignified Sharo (“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.
Koi began the manga in the magazine in 2011, and Houbunsha shipped the second compiled book volume in February.
