Cocoa Hoto (保登 ココア Hoto Kokoa?) is the main protagonist of the Is the Order a Rabbit? manga series as well as its anime series.



Cocoa has strawberry blonde shoulder-length hair with loose bangs, decorated with a cherry blossom hair clip on the side of her head. She has purple Tareme-style (downward slanted) eyes.

Her work outfit is a pink and red variant of the Rabbit House Cafe's uniform: a long ankle-length black skirt, white blouse, waistcoat and bow tie. Her school uniform consists of a white skirt and a pink cardigan sweater.


Cocoa is an optimistic girl full of excitement with a bubbly disposition and unbridled enthusiasm. Her behavior is seen as infectious by others and often convinces them to join her. She is also determined to be seen as a mature, older-sister type by others, but her highly clumsy nature usually discredits her attempts when she has to rely on someone else for help.

Not helping is the fact she is somewhat air-headed, usually causing incidents for her or those surrounding her. She is extremely clumsy and struggles to stay focused unless the subject interests her- or involves food. But despite her shortcomings and unwillingness to give up, she seems to have no confidence when it comes to what type of talent or skill she may possess. It is so low that she considers her rare ability to mentally calculate all arithmetic instantly as "nothing much".

Since she is the smallest among all siblings, she was influenced by her sister and brothers. Therefore, she is good at maths that she could calculate 430 multiple 29 in no time and recite prime number to 3 digits.

Since her home is a bakery, she is passionate in baking bread, and dreams of opening a bakery. She added meals of bread on the menu of Rabbit House. In contrast, she is not good at making other meals besides bread. Syaro once called her not to get in the way when they were making miso soup.

When she is small, she dreams of becoming a magician. Besides become a lawyer and open a bakery, she also dreams of becoming the international barista lawyer in the town, and novelist after meeting Aoyama Blue Mountain. When Mocha asked her, she said writing novel while being an international barista lawyer in the town, or being called elder sister.


Cocoa moves to the town to attend high school and home stays at Chino's home.

She visited the town when she was small, which is the reason she decided to study high school in the town. Back then, she met Chino's grandfather. She heard that he wanted to become a rabbit. Therefore, she tried to cast magic to help him.
