Plot

Cocoa Hoto moves into a new town to attend school. There, she begins living with Chino Kafū at her family's Rabbit House café, working as a waitress to pay for her accommodation.

Characters

Cocoa Hoto (保登 心愛 Hoto Kokoa?, usually written ココア)
Voiced by: Ayane Sakura
A young girl who moves into the Kafū residence and helps out at the Rabbit House to pay for her accommodation. She is quite keen on cute things, considering Chino as a little sister to her, and is skilled in baking bread. She is also talented in mathematics, something which she is unaware of. Cocoa's outlook was once compared to Chino's late mother by Tippy, though the former rejected it as such. Named after hot cocoa.
Chino Kafū (香風 智乃 Kafū Chino?, usually written チノ)
Voiced by: Inori Minase
The granddaughter of the Rabbit House's owner. A quiet and soft spoken girl who slowly warms up to Cocoa, though is often annoyed by her insistence on being called 'big sister'. Along with her father, she is the only one who knows the secret concerning Tippy and her grandfather. Her late mother was the one whom created the Rabbit House's uniforms, wanting Chino to work with her friends once she grew up. While three uniforms (red, blue and purple) existed, two other sets (green and yellow) were planned to be made but never finished due to her mother's clumsiness. Named after cappuccino.
Rize Tedeza (天々座 理世 Tedeza Rize?, usually written リゼ)
Voiced by: Risa Taneda
One of the waitresses at the Rabbit House. The daughter of a soldier, she has a very disciplined, military-like personality, however she is still very kind. She even carries a Glock and combat knife hidden on her person, but she is shown to having a strong feminine side as well, such as being vulnerable to cute things, and her appearance. She's pretty close to Sharo. Named after Thé des Alizés tea.
Chiya Ujimatsu (宇治松 千夜 Ujimatsu Chiya?)
Voiced by: Satomi Satō
Cocoa's classmate at high school, whose family runs a coffee shop of their own, Ama Usa An (甘兎庵?), which has its own rabbit mascot named Anko. Her grandmother was once the main rival of Rabbit House's original owner, Chino's grandfather and initially rough towards Chino before she gradually accepted her. Named after uji matcha tea.
Syaro Kirima (桐間 紗路 Kirima Sharo?, usually written シャロ)
Voiced by: Maaya Uchida
Chiya's childhood friend who lives next door to the Ama Usa An. She attends the same elite school as Rize, as a scholarship student, but is otherwise quite poor. She also has a slight fear of rabbits and becomes increasingly hyper after drinking coffee, her emotions differing depending on the blend. She is in love with Rize. She had a grey rabbit named "Wild Geese" (ワイルドギース Wairudo Gīsu?), which Syaro reluctantly let it stay on her house under the condition for it to find its own food. Named after Kilimanjaro coffee.
Maya Jōga (条河 麻耶 Jōga Maya?, usually written マヤ)
Voiced by: Sora Tokui
Chino's classmate in middle school. She's very energetic and harbors admiration for Rize, partly due to her military-like attitude. Named after Jogmaya tea.
Megumi Natsu (奈津 恵 Natsu Megumi?, usually written メグ)
Voiced by: Rie Murakawa
Chino's classmate in middle school, known as "Meg" (メグ Megu?) for short. Her mother is a ballet teacher so Megu is trained in ballet and is very good at it. Named after nutmeg.
Midori Aoyama (青山 翠 Aoyama Midori?)
Voiced by: Saori Hayami
A female novelist who goes under the pen name of Aoyama Blue Mountain (青山 ブルーマウンテン Aoyama Burū Maunten?). She admired Chino's grandfather (who she affectionately calls "Master" (マスター Masutā?)) and always asked his opinion about her stories. She briefly stopped writing books after she lost a pen that was given to her by Chino's grandfather, and Chino gave her a temporary job in the Rabbit House. Named after Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee.
Tippy (ティッピー Tippī?)
Voiced by: Motomu Kiyokawa
A female angora rabbit and the Rabbit House's mascot, who is so fluffy that she looks more like a fluffball than a rabbit. When not around Cocoa and the others, typically sat atop Chino's head, she speaks in a manly voice and helps Chino's father out at the bar. It is later revealed that through some unknown circumstances (though it is implied Cocoa was somehow involved), Tippy is possessed by the spirit of Chino's grandfather, who runs the Rabbit House.
Takahiro Kafū (香風 タカヒロ Kafū Takahiro?)
Voiced by: Shō Hayami
Chino's father, who runs the bar during the night alongside Tippy. He is a friend of Rize's father, and the two as well were former soldiers. He allows Cocoa residing in his home, as well as Mocha during their employment in the Rabbit House.
Mocha Hoto (保登 モカ Hoto Moka?)
Voiced by: Ai Kayano
Cocoa's older sister. Named after caffè mocha. She is very similar to Cocoa, besides the fact that Mocha is known for being a more dependable older sister and is very good at cuddling people.
