Tsundere, Imouto (little sister type), etc. are only a few of the PERSONAS that the café waitresses play out here. And the new hire, Maika, is asked by the store manager to play none other than the SUPER SADIST!? As she becomes devoted to her work, her super sadist persona blooms unexpectedly... Everything is a treat—even being stomped on—in this outrageous working comedy!

If I had to use one word to describe Blend S, it would be "disappointing." The premise is great and drew me in immediately, but it is executed so poorly. In a show like this, the two most important things should be the characters and the comedy, and the show falls flat on both ends. The two main characters, Dino and Maika, are both unbelievably irritating. They are constantly acting cringey, stupid, and unrealistically. Dino was particularly painful to deal with every time he was on screen. In fact, these two are so poorly written that the only time I found myself enjoying the show was during scenes that they weren't in at all! The rest of the characters are generally more enjoyable than Maika and Dino, but unfortunately they don't get much screentime, especially the most interesting three characters of the show, Mafuyu, Hideri, and Miu, all of whom get barely any development at all. Then we get to the comedy, which is at most points in the show incredibly painful. A lot of the show's attempts at jokes aren't jokes at all. For example, one of the major characters, Kaho, plays a lot of anime mobage. The show has many scenes of her playing these games, but these scenes have no actual punchline, and it feels like the show is trying to say, "Hey, viewer, you like anime and mobage, right? Well, so does this girl!" It gives no real attempt at being funny, instead hoping that being relatable will be enough to get a slight chuckle from the audience. The animation is lovely and cute and the opening theme is great, but these two aspects can't make up for the lack of substance in the rest of the show. All in all, I wouldn't recommend it.
