It looks like Café Dulce regulars will get a bit of the Do-S experience.
Yesterday, Aniplex of America announced that they are partnering with Little Tokyo’s Café Dulce to host a special Blend-S event. The café will host “branded exclusive giveaways” through October, though specifics on the promo have yet to be announced as of press time.
In addition, Aniplex launched an English-language teaser page and Facebook site for the Blend-S anime series. The teaser site features the newest key visual for the series, a brief English description, and a link to a subtitled version of the first teaser.
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.
