It looks like this cafe’s getting ready to open.
Earlier today, Aniplex of America started streaming a teaser trailer for Blend-S. The 100-second teaser is the first promo video, which originally hit the web in June.
Blend-S will hit Japanese TV on October 7. The series will début on Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, and BS11 on October 7 at 24:30 (10/8/2017 at 12:30AM). Kansai TV, TV Aichi, and AT-X will carry the series at a later date.
Crunchyroll will stream the show as it airs this fall.
Blend S will be directed by Ryouji Masuyama (Gurren Lagann Parallel Works) at A-1 Pictures, with Yousuke Okuda (Is the order a rabbit?) providing character designs. Go Zappa (Shin Koihime Musō, Chronicles of the Going Home Club) is in charge of series composition for the project.
The confirmed voice cast includes:
- Maika Sakuranomiya: Azumi Waki
- Kaho Hinata: Akari Kitō
- Mafuyu Hoshikawa: Anzu Haruno
- Miu Amano: Atsumi Tanezaki
- Hideri Kanzaki: Sora Tokui
- Dino: Tomoaki Maeno
- Kōyō Akizuki: Tatsuhisa Suzuki
The Blend S anime will adapt Miyuki Nakayama’s manga of the same name. The title 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.
