Our favourite seven young barista/waitresses return some five years after season 2 finished. This time Encourage Films picked up the production with, what proved to be, the best of the three seasons. Whereas the first two suffered from a chronic lack of story “Bloom” tightens up the plot considerably. Now it picks up a sense of purpose beyond just looking pretty. The audience has by now figured out the character nuances between the seven generic-teenage-girls for their blandness to cease to be an issue. Finally, a few more grown-ups start to appear in the story, maybe not to a significant effect at first but their presence adds depth. The anime never really tackles what happened to Chino’s mother but she makes a ghostly appearance now and her influence upon the story’s purpose slowly becomes clear. Chiya’s grandmother gets more to say in this season whilst Midori Aoyama’s editor Rin Mate becomes a character in her own right. The thread that joins the characters together becomes more apparent. Rize’s father turns up as a former military colleague of Takahiro (Chino’s father). He starts hanging around the Rabbit House after a fight with his daughter and helps out as waiter. There is a hint towards the end that he and Takahiro will take up playing Jazz again. There is also a nod to a sub-plot about Chino singing with her father’s band which seems to have come to an end with the death of her mother. A melancholy had settled upon the Rabbit House – a spell only broken by the arrival of Cocoa at the beginning of season one. We later learn that Cocoa was deliberately sent there by her mother who was a close friend of Chino’s mum. This is a story that finally found its plot. Cocoa finally finishes the waitress uniforms than Chino’s mum had started before her death. Chino and her father come to realise how little they had been able to move on since their bereavement. Cocoa’s presence in their lives gave them new meaning. Chino slowly starts to consider what life might be like outside her small town as Rize looks to move on to university after graduating high school. There is more packed into the twelve episodes of this season 3 than in all of the season one and two put together. The story was so terrified of getting distracted from its own cuteness that it failed to ever touch upon the bittersweet nature of the tale. It is a fantasy – one bedecked so colourfully with Halloween and Christmas decoration that you might think it is from an entirely different genre. It gives such warmth to the show that the audience is now able to overlook how all so sickly-sweet it all was. It only leaves you wondering why none of this subtle genius couldn’t have reared its head in seasons one and two? This is a super-kawaii slice of iyashikei that finally manages to make the audience give a damn. About time too.
