The Ash-Colored Rabbit and the Ash Princess Cocoa-senpai's Elegant Tea Party Tutorial

The Legendary Twirl Dancing Duck Squad (回転舞踏伝説アヒル隊?) is the third episode of Is the Order a Rabbit?? anime series.

Synopsis

To prepare for the upcoming Fine Arts Month event, Chino, Megumi, and Maya attempt to draw and learn to dance. But in comparison to her friends Chino is worried over her skill so they try encouraging her.

Summary

In Art Class, Chiya and Cocoa do self portraits of each other. Chiya isn't very confident in her art but she wishes she was so that Ama Usa An could have a fancier menu. Cocoa decides to borrow this idea but struggles to think of anything for Rabbit House, besides a cup of coffee.

After school the girls leave while discussing art until Cocoa spots the trio and runs up to greet them. They ask what is going on and Maya explains that at their school it's "Fine Arts Month", a time when a creative dance recital is held, along with a sketching contest. Chino is concerned because she isn't confident in her art skills, so the girls attempt to encourage her, with Cocoa recommending scenery as a good place to start with art. She picks an ideal spot, only to become distracted by a rabbit- which proceeds to pee and ruin her serene image.

As this is going on, Megumi compliments Chiya and how she would be a good model to base art on. Maya voices her desire to draw one of the Coffee Shops and Chiya offers to decorate the shop and herself for the both of them, excitedly running off as Cocoa remains with the trio. They begin to chat about the creative dance and how they want to do it as a group, but they haven't come up with choreography just yet.

At Fleur de Lapin. Chino comments that it looks really difficult to draw but Maya doesn't think so, suggesting the perspective would make it easier. But after they realize they don't actually know what the word means, they step inside and attempt to pose while holding their pencils, thinking that because artists do it, they will be inspired. When nothing happens, Maya decides to settle for something more simply like some fruit or a vase. Megumi suggests they try to pick something they like from Rabbit House, like the gramophone or Coffee Mil.

At Rabbit House, the girls sit down when Maya comments that the artist pose isn't worth doing anymore and Rize starts teasing them a little. After seeing Megumi take her words to heart, she quickly clarifies that the pose is used by artists to observe the size of their drawing object.

With that, Chino observes Tippy for a moment before the trio attempt to draw him. They ask him not to move, but when they finish they're not happy with such plain drawings, so Maya asks Tippy to change forms and they begin imagining him as a feathery, winged creature. They observe their drawings again when Chino asks Rize to try to draw something since she's such a good artist. She quickly sketches a picture of Tippy and they fawn over it, asking her to lend them a hand while a rejected Cocoa watches. Cocoa makes a remark on Chino's picture while Rize comments on Maya's. This leaves Megumi saddened over how plain hers is in comparison until Chino and Maya manage to perk her up, then they sit back down to try drawing again. Aoyama happens to overhear them an offers some words of encouragement, then she begins chatting with Chino. Cocoa feels inspired to put her older-sister self to use by bringing the girls some drinks, leaving Chino impressed by her responsibility. Proud of their efforts, Cocoa hangs up the various drawings, but Chino insists that she only does it for a little bit. Meanwhile, Megumi and Maya start to express concern over their pictures of Sharo they did earlier on.

Time passes when Chino goes on to show them the drawing of Rabbit House she did. The girls are amazed by how well it turned out, but the Teacher's comments reveal her score was pretty low. That evening, Tippy observes the images they hung up. He seems impressed, then criticizes the "uniqueness" of one of them.

The next day Maya chastises her friends for not coming up with a Choreography for their dance yet. Chino admits that she isn't athletic and can't do very much, but they decide to at least try and do some warm-ups to begin with. They turn on music and begin to do rabbit jumps, then Maya shows them some dances she knows before criticizing Megumi for clumsiness, while Chino won't even try. Chino reveals she brought a CD that belongs to her father that she thought they could use. The girls listen to the gentle melody before agreeing to use it, and they watch as Megumi appears to feel the flow of the song and beautifully dances; until she gets flustered realizing this and stops. Maya explains that Megumi's mother is a ballet instructor so she learned through her, then points out she also took lessons. Chino is really shocked by this and they start wondering if she could learn dancing through this. Megumi assures her that her mom can make time for them.

At work, Chino practices her tip-toe walking and explains her plans to take up ballet. She assures Tippy she is only doing it for the Dance, but they get distracted after Cocoa is led to believe Chino actually got taller and calls Chiya to inform her of this.

Chino is disappointed to learn just how hard Ballet is. Megumi tells her to avoid overdoing it, but Maya's words only cause her to panic and fear she could never become a beautiful dancing swan like her friends.

After a few days they comment on how much Chino has improved before she realizes Cocoa came with Tippy to watch her. She brought many items for them to eat, and suddenly she suggests they in-cooperate a Cafe theme into their dance, which concerns the girls.

Later, Rize comes by with some snacks and drinks, but to her shock she finds out Cocoa has decided to join them. Chiya and Sharo also show up, with Sharo needing some convincing- namely Rize deciding she wants to join them too. Maya is surprised seeing how goo they are at dancing, but Cocoa and Chiya leave much to be desired. Rize and Sharo dance together to show them how they should do it, until Sharo trips and dizzily lays on the ground, feeling nothing but bliss for having touched Rize.

Megumi's mother comes by to ask if the girls would like to join her class, but Rize refuses since she's already busy with work. Sharo also turns it down since she can't afford it, then quickly say she's too busy to cover it up. In the mean time Maya takes over and tries to help Chiya as Megumi takes Cocoa. Rize and Sharo prepare to leave, only to express shock when Cocoa walks backwards and reveals she learned to moonwalk from Maya. Watching them causes Megumi to laugh a bit, which catches Maya's attention as she hasn't been this happy in some time. She goes on to bring up Megumi's stage fright and how she quit dancing when she got embarrassed doing so in front of others. Chino is confuse because of how good at it she is. Just then, Maya recalls that they never settled on their Choreography.

After the recital Chino tells the girls at Rabbit House how it went. She is sure next year will go better, and the girls express confusion after Tippy begins to cry. Chino accuses him of being dramatic and Rize mentions that he might have missed her because of her being gone so much recently, while Cocoa decides to show them something new she learned; only to crash into the wall. With ease Chino shows off that she managed to learn this move with ease, and Rize comments that maybe one day she will be able to gain a pair of toe shoes.
