The February issue of Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Carat magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Miyuki Nakayama's Blend S four-panel manga is receiving a television anime adaptation. The issue's cover announces the adaptation and features the manga's characters with their designated attributes for the cafe.
The story centers on a girl named Maika who gets a job at a cafe where all the waitresses are given certain attributes — such as "tsundere" or "little sister" — to embody while serving customers. The manager asks Maika to be the "Do S" (extreme sadist) waitress, so she will have to adopt a dominant and aggressive persona.
The manga debuted as a guest series in the magazine in 2013, and Nakayama launched it as a regular series in 2014. Houbunsha released the second compiled book volume in Japan on February 27, and the third volume will ship on January 27.
Yen Press announced in July that it had licensed Nakayama's ongoing Spirits & Cat Ears manga. The fifth compiled volume shipped in Japan on July 23, and the North American publisher will release the first volume on February 21.
