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!

What’s better than a cafe with delicious food? A cafe with cute girls to serve you of course! It gets even better. These girls have some exaggerated personalities. From sadistic to tsundere, it’s a place that really gives customers a hell of an experience. Blend S is honestly an anime that I found ridiculously fun to watch.

Starting from the beginning, it shouldn’t take long for viewers to recognize that the anime has a lot of fun with itself. The selling point of show is the comedy as every main female characters’ personalities are beyond the normal norm. Honestly, I lost count how many times read more

Sometimes it just takes and endearing cast and fun situations to make me Smile. Blend S doesn’t boast an intricate plot with elaborate detail and it quite frankly doesn’t need one to be successful. This is a very Sweet anime that managed to be enjoyable and consistently entertaining, which was honestly a Surprise to me since I didn't really have any expectations coming into this anime. Maika with her unintentionally Sadistic looks ended up being my favorite part of the show, though this doesn’t mean that she overshadowed the rest of the cast, who all managed to stand out in their own ways. Even the read more

There are six words starting with "S" you should remember, plus another word starting with "S" you have to add to make it an internet pride.
"Smile, Sweet, Sister, Sadistic, Surprise, Service" - these are the holy words that starts with "S" that summarizes the whole anime itself. I was wondering why its called "Blend S".... Now when I finished it, my first guess was correct (though this is my opinion only). A mix of attributes of the characters. Words that starts with "S" that characters are assigned to. Blend S is an anime this Fall 2017 that offers us a cafe read more

As a big fan of the slice of life category, I may be biased but I can honestly say that Blend S is genuinely good. For me, this isn't just your average slice of life anime. This anime just makes me smile more than the other shows without even trying.

First of all, since the category of this anime is slice of life, you can't expect the story to be very good, that might be the case for Blend S as well but at least plot movement is evident in the anime. For those who are looking for an anime with a deep plot, This isn't read more
