The mysterious “Bartender” drink is tempting to figure out. Although the secret ingredients are a mystery, perhaps the eagle eyed can figure it out after watching the anime, since it’s the highlight and namesake of the series.
Fans of the best-selling Japanese manga Bartender by Araki Joh can now cozy up with the anime, now available in a collectable box set, complete with recipes to make at home!
This anime has a worldwide cult following because of how it manages to help people in their darkest hour. To be a bartender means more than having the dexterity to give a little show to those at the bar. They can be counsellors. They’ve gone through the gambit of the game of life, and why this anime is highly regarded. We can learn from this show and have that smile on the face too after learning that we are not alone with our problems.
This acclaimed series is directed by Masaki Watanabe (Battle Spirits, Bakumatsu, KADO – The Right Answer), written by Yasuhiro Imagawa (Giant Robo the Animation) and produced by Palm Studios.
It’s hard to believe that “Bartender” Ryū Sasakura will soon be 15 years old. Well, the anime that is. This anthology series became quite the cult hit back in the day and its eloquence is in how the people feel transformed after having a drink made by this gentleman. He adds more than zest of being that sympathetic ear to those customers who have come here to soothe their aches and pains of something traumatic which recently occurred in their life.
This series is set to make its North American Blu-ray debut early next year and the bonus material is enough to whet anyone’s appetite. Although the manga has featured many more drinks than the eleven episode series, newcomers have ways to enjoy this celebratory set. Nine of the best recipes Sasakura-san crafted is part of this special package. It’s anyone’s guess on what they are, and this release will be worth picking up to find out!
