Sakuranomiya Maika is, by nature, a person with bad luck and always gets into trouble, but knows Dino, who manages a cafeteria. However, it is not any cafeteria, and the waitresses have to act according to their "attributes."
I honestly wasn't expecting much out of Blend S. I was expecting this to be, yet another, cute and clique coffee based anime. After jumping on Crunchyroll, I decided to give Blend a chance. It surprised me with the amount of comedy it presented. If you've been looking for an anime that at least puts a smirk on your face, then you've come to the right place.
"She better not be pointing fingers at 'Gochuumon wa Usagi desu ka?'"
Sakuranomiya, Maika is a kind, ditsy girl that has a naturally sadistic look on her face. She's in dire need of a job though; instead of
asking her father to support her in her time of need, she decides to rely on her own willpower. After constantly failing to find a job she eventually stumbles across a café. This is basically what happened: She casted a spell on the café by using her moe powers. She was instantly hired! Here, her 'sadistic nature' is embraced and nurtured as she spends her days having fun with her understanding friends and coworkers.
Usagi-chan: "Moe powers!!! Activate!!"
UsagiOtaku: "Stop interrupting my review, Usagi-chan"
The designs are really fluffy and adorable.
(I'm still questioning what I'm supposed to be saying about the art and sound. I'll just leave them both at 7)
The characters are hilarious and sweet, they bring life to the anime. Watching as their true personalities contradict with their 'given' one, is an entertaining sight to see. Whenever a character talks about something that they're interested in, they seem to have a sparkle in their eye. Without a doubt, I'm slowly beginning to love almost all the characters.
I'm planning on following each released episode. I'm hoping that my current point of view will lasts until the end.
Usagi-chan: "The lack of Yuri isn't going to steer me away from this anime! I'm going to watch it all the way through!!"
UsagiOtaku: "Shhhh. You're embarrassing me"
