|This looked like it'd be boring at first... but the characters quickly grew on me, on the first episode.|
Episode 1 - I Knew at First Glance That It Was No Ordinary Fluffball
Cocoa moves to a new cozy small town, and then comes across a cafe called "Rabbit House"... she gets excited and runs in looking for a rabbit. Chino, the small, quiet girl greets her and asks for her order. She says she wants a rabbit, and then sees the fluffy round rabbit sitting ontop of Chino's head... Chino says that rabbit is not for sale... and tells her she can only pet the rabbit if she buys coffee. The rabbit, Tippy, apparently speaks Japanese...
Then Cocoa learns this Rabbit House is actually the place she was sent to live in... Chino is the granddaughter of the owner of this place... her grandpa passed away, but her parents still work here...
There's also a part timer girl, Rize. She's very strong and military-minded because of her dad being a general or something...
Cocoa wants to help out at her new home any way she can... but she doesn't have any special talents... Rize can memorize types of coffee really quickly just by smelling it, and can carry bags of coffee beans no problem. I dunno what Chino's talent is, but they find out Cocoa can do math really well, so at least that's something.
Rize also has a cute side... after she shows off her coffee cream drawing talents, and Cocoa tries it out and draws a bunny with a crooked mouth, she loves it and tries to hide her gushing... and then they get Chino to try drawing something and it's this crazy abstract art... Chino's the weird one for sure.
Oh, and Rabbit house becomes a bar at night, and Chino's dad is the bartender. Tippy works with him at the bar as well, sitting on his head just like with Chino.
Cocoa loves it when Chino calls her "Cocoa Onee-chan"... she follows her around all night and acts all sisterly... even goes into the bath with her, and asks for them to sleep together, since she doesn't have her stuff here yet, and she wants to bond with her more.
Chino doesn't like being treated as a teddy bear.
The dad is talking to Tippy... who we find out is actually Chino's grandpa, stuck in the boddy of a stuffed rabbit for some reason.
That ending theme is appropriately cute and catchy.
