Blend S Waitress TV Anime's Main Staff, Visual Unveiled

A-1 Pictures opened a website for its television anime adaptation of Miyuki Nakayama's Blend S four-panel manga on Saturday. The site reveals the anime's main staff and visual.

Ryouji Masuyama (Gurren Lagann Parallel Works' "Drill the Heavens with Your XXX!!!" director, The [email protected] episode director) is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures. Go Zappa (Koihime Musō, NAKAIMO - My Little Sister Is Among Them!, Chronicles of the Going Home Club) is supervising the series' scripts. Yousuke Okuda (Is the order a rabbit?) is designing the characters.

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 Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Carat magazine in 2013, and Nakayama launched it as a regular series in 2014. Houbunsha released the 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.
