2. Theory Section

Why should we look forward to this anime? Let’s look into the technical details such as the animation, the studio, and its popularity to check what influences the production of ‘Is the Order a Rabbit? Bloom’.

I. About The Studio

Encourage Films is the studio producing the season 3 of GochiUsa. It has produced anime like Love Kome:  We Love Rice, Hitorijime My Hero, Isekai Cheat Magician, and more.

Hashimoto Hiroyuki is the director with works such as Angel Beats, Accel World, Bakuman, and of course, Is the Order a Rabbit under his belt.

II. How Popular Is GochiUsa?

Audience response to the anime was 7.54 on MyAnimeList and many truly do love it. This adorable slice-of-life comedy is a life lesson from Koi to his audience.

It explores time, memories, life, and emphasizes on the fact that everyone grows up and you have to cherish every single one of your happy memories.

Watching a show where cute girls do funny things and make you laugh out loud is the perfect show for 2020. This proves that the IMBD rating of 7.2 wasn’t for nothing, fans love this show.

III. Animation Quality

The visuals of GochiUsa are top-notch and it elevates the joy of watching the anime.

The characters are way too adorable to be in a comedy, but it works! The girls are well designed, their outfits and hairstyles have an impressive range to suit all the seasons and surroundings.

The anime feels very soothing and elegant onscreen and manages to comfort the viewers from its peaceful aesthetic.

Now that Bloom is taken up Encourage Films, let’s see how they fill these massive shoes.

IV. Was Season 2 Any Good?

The anime Is the Order a Rabbit? is funny, period. Each episode shows you a side of the characters and the way the girls complement each other. The humor is done well in the series, slapstick and witty, it makes watching the show worth it.

Since GochiUsa is episodic, each event turns into a competitive adventure. A laundry day can turn into a bubble blowing contest. Turning such dull activities interesting with a dash of color and banter makes the anime stand out.

The previous seasons introduced Cocoa to the town and focused on her relationships with the other girls. In Bloom, it would be nice to see the girls with new settings or events to show their growth in the last 3 years or so.

Seeing the cute girls have fun is a great standout in the show visually. The enchanting atmosphere of the café, bright town, and charismatic characters increases the expectations of the fans for the third season of GochiUsa.
