A-1 Pictures Animates Blend S Manga for Fall Broadcast

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
TV anime about cafe waitress premieres in October

The July issue of Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Carat magazine is revealing on Sunday that A-1 Pictures (Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend, Ace Attorney, Oreimo 2) is animating the television anime adaptation of Miyuki Nakayama's Blend S four-panel manga. The anime is slated to premiere in October.

The manga's 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 third compiled book volume on January 27.

Yen Press announced in July that it had licensed Nakayama's ongoing Spirits & Cat Ears manga. The sixth compiled volume shipped in Japan on January 23, and the North American publisher released the second volume on May 23.
