The official website for the anime adaptation of Koi's Gochūmon wa Usagi Desu ka? (Is the order a rabbit?) manga began streaming a fifteen-second commercial focusing on Chino (voiced by Inori Minase) on Friday. The video features the anime's ending theme, "Poppin jump♪" by Chimame-tai, a unit made up of the voice actresses of Chino (Inori Minase), Meg (Rie Murakawa), and Maya (Sora Tokui).
I'm Chino. I'm working to become a proper barista. It's been so lively ever since Cocoa arrived. TV anime Is the order a rabbit? starts broadcasting in April.
The cast also includes Saori Hayami as Blue Mountain Aoyama (a pun of "Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee"), Rie Murakawa as Megumi "Meg" Natsu (a pun of "nutmeg"), and Sora Tokui as Maya Jōga.
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.
The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX on April 10.
