Bartender [56k is not that painful]


Recommended Posts


This anime, which belongs in the Business Jump manga/anime section, premiered yesterday (October 14th) and I was wondering if anyone else has heard of it. I don't have that much information on hand, but here is the trailer. The story follows a genius bartender that has won a championship in a worldwide contest in the past and decides to work for a hotel bar. In addition, the patrons who frequent the bar tell the Bartender various stories about their life. The manga, by Araki Jo and Kenji Nagatomo, began in 2004. Five tankabon volumes are currently on the market.

To be perfectly honest, I don't think there is anything out there that I find less interesting than the topic of alcoholic drinks. Seriously, when I'm at work, I think it's pure torture to have to listen to my co-workers (some of whom are like, 16) talk about the kinds of drinks they've tried and which ones they like or don't like. So with that considered, I must admit that I wasn't terribly entertained by the first episode of this show. I guess it's just not intended for people like me.
