Blend S Synopsis:
Wanting to be independent, 16-year-old Maika Sakuranomiya is desperate for a part-time job so she can afford to study abroad. Unfortunately, her requests are frequently turned down due to the menacing look she unintentionally gives each time she smiles, despite her cheerful disposition.
After another failed interview, he comes across Cafe Stile, a coffee shop where waiters interact with customers while playing distinctive personalities.
The Italian store manager, Dino, falls in love with Maika’s cuteness at first sight and offers her a job as a waitress with a sadistic character. Along with his inherent clumsiness, he successfully manages to cater to a couple of masochistic clients in keeping with his ruthless new personality.
Alongside Kaho Hinata as the tsundere and Mafuyu Hoshikawa as the younger sister, Maika decides to make the most of her unique quirk and solidifies her position in the cafe’s ruthless cruelty. Stay tuned for the next update.
