Azumi Waki, Akari Kitō, Anzu Haruno star in series premiering in October

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Miyuki Nakayama's Blend S four-panel manga began streaming the show's first promotional video on Sunday. The video reveals the show's main cast. (Note: the video at the official website is region-locked to Japan.)

The anime stars:

Azumi Waki as Maika Sakuranomiya. Because she usually has an unpleasant look in her eyes, she was worried that she didn't pass the interview, but the shop manager hired her to work at Stile. Her dream is to one day study abroad. She is the "Do S" (extreme sadist) waitress.

Akari Kitō as Kaho Hinata. A blonde-haired pigtail-wearing popular high school student who is an employee at Stile. In truth she really loves video games, and is always running out of money. She is the tsundere waitress.

Anzu Haruno as Mafuyu Hoshikawa. She looks young but she is actually a college student. She's usually quite calm but when she starts work she becomes a sparkling "little sister" character. She loves children's anime. She is the "little sister" waitress.

Ryouji Masuyama (Gurren Lagann Parallel Works' "Drill the Heavens with Your XXX!!!" director, The IDOLM@STER 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, and Tomoki Kikuya (Squid Girl, Eromanga Sensei) is composing the music.

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.
