The adaptation of the original four panel manga series by Koi for the first season was produced by White Fox for the spring 2014 season as it dealt with the two volumes of material released at the time as the manga began in 2011.
Sentai Filmworks has licensed the first season series for home video release in North America which comes out in July 2015.
Plot concept: Coming to a new town to start high school can be intimidating, and that’s especially true for Cocoa, who can’t find the place she’s supposed to be staying when she arrives. When she stops at a cafe to ask for directions, however, it turns out that she’s already where she needs to be! You see, the Rabbit House is both a restaurant and a boarding house, and Cocoa will be working there along with the owner’s granddaughter, Chino and the strangely military-obsessed Rize. It’s a great place to work, business is hopping, and Cocoa’s fits right in with her new coworkers, as well as the girls from two other rival cafes. Still, there IS something just a little odd about the Rabbit House. Besides the fact that Rize usually carries a Glock and a knife hidden on her, there’s also a mystery involving the shop’s pet rabbit, Tippy. And then there are those girls who sometimes seem to be able to communicate without talking… The answer to these secrets may not always be hare-raising, but they’re bound to keep Cocoa jumping as the fun never stops in IS THE ORDER A RABBIT?
