Plot

Cocoa Hoto enters the cafe Rabbit House, assuming there are rabbits to be cuddled. What Cocoa actually finds is her high school boarding house, staffed by the owner's daughter, Chino Kafuu, a small, precocious, and somewhat shy girl with an angora rabbit on her head. She quickly befriends Chino with the full intention of becoming like her older sister, much to Chino's annoyance. From there she will experience her new life and befriend many others, including the military-influenced, yet feminine Rize Tedeza, the playful Chiya Ujimatsu who goes at her own pace, and the impoverished Syaro Kirima who commands an air of nobility and admiration despite her background. Slowly, through slices of life, often comedic, Cocoa becomes irreplaceable in her new friends' lives, with Chino at the forefront.  

Why It Rocks

  1. Excellent animation and incredibly adorable character designs which are way better looking than you'd expect for this kind of show.  
  2. Amazing voice acting.
  3. Outstanding comedy which makes it one of the funniest and most entertaining anime.  
  4. The entire cast of characters are incredibly entertaining and lovable; with Chino, the mature and responsible barista, Cocoa, the clingy older sister type, Rize, the gun enthusiast with a soft spot, or Syaro, a scaredy cat. It definitely makes up for their lack of complexity.
  5. It had a movie which is just as good.
  6. Fun and entertaining storylines.
