The official Twitter account for the Manga Time Kirara magazine editors unveiled the Gochūmon wa Usagi Desu ka? BLOOM (Is the order a rabbit? BLOOM) title and October television premiere for the third season of the Gochūmon wa Usagi Desu ka? (Is the order a rabbit?) anime franchise on Thursday. It also presented a key visual based on the original manga.

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.

Update: Hiroyuki Hashimoto is returning to direct the new season at Encourage Films, and Kazuyuki Fudeyasu is also back to be in charge of the series scripts. Yousuke Okuda is again designing the characters, and the original cast is returning.

The first two seasons will rerun on the AT-X and BS11 channels starting in April.
