We initially got details on the new Bartender anime back in April, with plans set for the series to kick off its broadcast in April 2024 and stream on Crunchyroll. Now the official website has come through with the first teaser trailer for the latest adaptation of the manga written by Araki Joh and illustrated by Kenji Nagatomo.
Check it out below while we wait for Bartender Glass of God to pour us a stiff one.
Ryoichi Kuraya (Farming Life in Another World) is directing the new Bartender anime adaptation, with Mariko Kunisawa (Ascendance of a Bookworm) on series composition and Yoichi Ueda (Gangsta.) handling character designs for the Liber INC. production.
The original Bartender manga ran from 2004 to 2012 and was adapted into an 11-episode anime directed by Masaki Watanabe and produced at Palm Studio in 2006. The original adaptation is available digitally and physically via Shout! Factory and Anime Limited, summing up the series like so:
Situated in the Ginza district of Tokyo is the Eden Hall, a quiet bar that few people manage to come across. It is run by the legendary bartender Ryu Sasakura, a genius at mixing the right drink for the right customer. Throughout his period at Eden Hall, customers from all walks of life, carrying all sorts of burdens, arrive for a godly glass at the Hall and a kind word with Ryu, both of which assist in clearing their problems up and reviving them for another go at life.
