The title pretty much explains itself, here is an example: Nio from Akuma no Riddle, the whole thing has been bugging me for awhile, thanks in advance.

    Are you thinking of っす? japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/36/… – Janusz ヤヌシュ Aug 1 at 23:56

    Can't watch the video, but if it's っす (as in そうっすね instead of そうですね) it's not a dialect, just a personal "style" of the speaker. There are countless other "styles" a person can use other than っす, e.g. でげす (which was used by men around the end of the Edo Period to early Meiji Period but sometimes used nowadays by manga/anime characters), でちゅ, which is like baby talk in Japanese, ってばよ, which is Naruto's style, and so on... – DXV Aug 2 at 0:35

    @Chcr yes exactly, it's this っす. In the original manga it's written as っス or ッス btw – NoxArt Aug 2 at 6:47

    @Chcr so it was like a style, that may explain why I wasnt able to find anything related to it while searching for a dialect form, thanks to clarify and thanks for the answers. – Whisperv1 Aug 3 at 21:32

    @Chcr maybe you can post it as an answer so this can be resolved? – NoxArt Aug 10 at 17:25

Edit: Just watched the video and I confirm that my answer above is correct. The female character said:

高級{こうきゅう}食材{しょくざい}ばっかで美味{うま}そうっす

It's just her speaking style, which has the same meaning as:

高級{こうきゅう}食材{しょくざい}ばっかで美味{うま}そうです
