After an apparently successful 2014 season one, White Fox kept the ball rolling with “Is the Order a Rabbit?? Season 2” seeing the light of day a year later. No doubt this rabbit-themed slice of lyashikei has its fans and season 2 will not disappoint if you were happy with the format. So, expect more of the same. The story still focusses on our team of teenage baristas working in various rabbit-orientated cafes dotted around this small timber-framed Japanese town. The only adults in the story (discounting Tippy the rabbit) remain Chino’s father Takahiro Kafu and the local author Midori Aoyama. The only story aspect resembling plot-development is the introduction of Cocoa’s older sister Mocha, who turns up for a visit. Cocoa is keen to prove that she is the big sister now and can act responsibly. If you know her character then you know that will be hard. Other than this is it is all just more cute, cute, cute. They are teenage girls. They are pretty. They are mostly a bit ditzy. It’s an explosion in a kawaii-factory complete with maid uniforms. The seven core cuties will finally get the chance to go on a summer road-trip in season two with a trip up into the mountains to do some camping. Other than this nothing really memorable happens. It is the anime equivalent of a very comfy sofa. You settle in, it is undemanding, if you stop watching the sub-titles for five minutes it doesn’t matter – you haven’t missed anything essential. Despite key visual differences the girls’ characters remain too similar and indistinct. It all goes nowhere and barely scratches the surface of a potential coming-of-age drama. One long whale song with pretty bows on.
