'Is the order a rabbit?? Sing For You' OVA Reveals Video, More Cast

Nana Mizuki plays Chino's mother in anime shipping on September 26

The official website for the Is the order a rabbit?? Sing For You original video anime (OVA) project began streaming a new promotional video for the anime on Tuesday. The video previews the song "Singer Song Payapoya Melody," performed by the OVA's voice cast under the name "Petit Rabbit's with beans."

The website also revealed that Nana Mizuki will play Chino's mother.

The anime will ship on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on September 26.

Hiroyuki Hashimoto is returning to direct the OVA at production doA. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu is returning as scriptwriter, and Yousuke Okuda is returning as character designer.

In the story, Chino is chosen to have a solo part at a concert. Chino asks Rize to help her get accustomed to singing in front of others, and so they have a karaoke tournament. But, as Chino practices, everyone gets overly excited about the upcoming event, making Chino nervous.

The first season of the anime premiered in Japan in April 2014, and the second season premiered in October 2015. Crunchyroll streamed both seasons as they aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed both seasons for North American release.

Gochūmon wa Usagi Desu ka?? Dear My Sister, a new special episode for the anime, opened in 40 theaters in Japan in November 2017.

In Koi's original four-panel manga, the main character Cocoa (a pun of “hot Cocoa”) arrives at the café 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 Sharo (“Kilimanjaro” coffee).

Koi launched the original manga in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Max magazine in 2011.
