Wishing to be independent, 16-year-old Maika Sakuranomiya is desperate to nail down a part-time job so that she can afford to study abroad. Unfortunately, her applications are constantly rejected due to the menacing look she unintentionally makes whenever she smiles, despite her otherwise cheerful disposition. After yet another failed interview, she chances upon Café Stile, a coffee shop where the servers interact with the customers while roleplaying distinctive characteristics. The Italian store manager, Dino, becomes infatuated with Maika's cuteness at first sight, and offers her a job as a waitress with a sadistic nature. Coupled with her inherent clumsiness, she successfully manages to serve a pair of masochistic customers in accordance with her new, ruthless persona. Alongside Kaho Minata as the tsundere and Mafuyu Hoshikawa as the younger sister, Maika decides to make the most out of her unique quirk and cements her position in the cafe with merciless cruelty!

It has that relaxing atmosphere and moe aesthetic from GochiUsa while the comedy feels like Working!! in the best way possible.


You know how in every anime each female character fills a stereotype. They made that a plot point.


sterotype the anime


Fun exaggerated artwork, cute designs and some nice bits of loose animation make this a pretty fun watch, worth checking out.


The show that was basically a meme factory. Fun and sweet. It had a character everyone could love.


Yes, it’s tropes in a workplace, but you know what? I still found some enjoyment in this series. It’s silly and cute in its own way.


Doesn’t stand out in any regard whatsoever.
