This is the movie that takes place right after both seasons of the TV series, "Is The Order a Rabbit?". This time, Cocoa decides to spend a week working on her family's bakery with her mother and her big sister, Mocha. Back at Rabbit House, the girls prepare for a festival, but not without some concerns for Chino or some "substitute big sister" roleplay for Rize to deal with.
Storyline As this movie centers on the two paths, Cocoa's side of the tale brings out some heavy development on her part alongside her big sister Mocha and to a small extent, their mother, including on how things were before Cocoa went off to Rabbit House for the first time and how things in Hot Bakery are run. (Dead serious, that's the bakery's name, my thoughts on Mocha aside.) As of Chino's side of things, she and Rize are the pairing that get their fair share of development due to the unveiling of Rize's origin as an Rabbit House employee and it is also handled in a good way, especially with it eventually connecting to the other girls later on. Overall, this is a very entertaining and lighthearted tale, much like the shows before this movie.
Characters Not much of anything has changed in terms of qualities to characters, but they also continue to be very fun. The person that most benefited from this movie ended up being Rize as this once again, develops her character even further with her origin for Rabbit House and she ended up being even more fun of a character even though she's still quite the loose cannon. Cocoa's family also gets some spotlight and ended up delving into how her family life is and Cocoa's relationships between her mom and Mocha had their characters expanded not by too much, but enough to be sufficient, Mocha's mischievous antics aside. Alongside Cocoa, Chino also deals with being separated and loneliness to a point, but this ended up being done well enough not to hurt their characters and the very same goes for the other girls (and Tippy) despite there being no changes or direct focus to them. Some other people like Aoyama and Mr. Kafuu just have cameo scenes just for this go-around and nothing else.
Pros and Cons Even though that a different studio (production doA instead of Kinema Citrus and White Fox) is handling this movie, it still retains the same beautiful art style and well-done animation as the previous entries. The music of the movie is in good standing as well with a new main theme song, but while most of the background music is the same as the previous entries, the tracks are still well done. The only content advisory to address is some very mild, censored nudity within a brief bath scene for those that are worried, but those kind of scenes have never been that bad in the entirety of the franchise's anime branch in the first place.
Final Verdict After recovering from this barrage of cuteness, this definitely ended up being very entertaining to the point of it being nearly on the same league as the second season. This still warrants the movie being stamped with the high-scale Absolute Beauty rating for all that it's worth. Definitely check this out if you happen to be a fan of the series overall and are looking forward to the next confirmed entries of the franchise.
Current Situation: I wanted another excuse to use Enterprise as an avatar again.
Haven't watch the movie. It was interesting you said the movie was heavy. Didn't expect that from a show like this. I don't remember drama. It was like you said, it was a light hearted series. Wait, there are censored nudity. That feels awfully weird for an innocent show that doesn't do pandering fan service. It's not like Gabriel Dropout or New Game.
That was a cool review. Learned more new things about the franchise.
Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
