Wishing to be independent, 16-year-old Maika Sakuranomiya is desperate to nail down a part-time job so that she can afford to study abroad. Unfortunately, her applications are constantly rejected due to the menacing look she unintentionally makes whenever she smiles, despite her otherwise cheerful disposition.

After yet another failed interview, she chances upon Café Stile, a coffee shop where the servers interact with the customers while roleplaying distinctive characteristics. The Italian store manager, Dino, becomes infatuated with Maika's cuteness at first sight, and offers her a job as a waitress with a sadistic nature. Coupled with her inherent clumsiness, she successfully manages to serve a pair of masochistic customers in accordance with her new, ruthless persona. Alongside Kaho Hinata as the tsundere and Mafuyu Hoshikawa as the younger sister, Maika decides to make the most out of her unique quirk and cements her position in the cafe with merciless cruelty!

Another one of those animes im not really that much fond of. Again, its standard, its pretty much in the same level as other animes, which is the subpar level that has ok characters, meh storyline, decent sound and artstyle.

Couple of bonus points because of the meme that im used to last 2018. Its great and kinda unique to the fact it has some slapstick’s into it, so yea ill give it a pass for that, but not much close to as ...

Blend S was one of those animes that didn’t interest me back when it aired in 2017, and perhaps for good reason. Beyond the pedophile manager’s (aged 26) attraction to the mc Maika (aged 16), the anime fails to go anywhere in terms of plot despite introducing multiple new characters throughout the season.
