A-1 Pictures Producing “Blend S” Anime For Fall 2017


But can A-1 Pictures tell us if Blend S will blend?

The latest issue of Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Carat magazine (July 2017) reports that Miyuki Nakayama’s Blend S manga will receive an anime adaptation. A-1 Pictures (Sword Art Online, Fairy Tail) was tapped to produce the adaptation, which airs this fall.

Blend S is a four-panel comedy that debuted in the October 2013 issue of Manga Time Kirara Carat. To date, three collected volumes of the title have been produced, with the most recent hitting stores on January 27.

The series focuses on a girl named Maika, who takes a job at a local café. This establishment’s a bit different than most, though, as each of the waitresses is given a unique trait, like “tsundere” or “little sister”, in order to appeal to specific customers. Maika’s role is to be the extreme sadist (“Do S“), meaning she needs to adopt a dominant, aggressive, and somewhat cruel persona while on the clock.
