Get ready for a delightful treat, anime fans! The official website for the upcoming TV anime, “Bartender Glass of God” (also known as “Bartender: Kami no Glass”), has just unveiled some exciting details.
This new anime is based on the popular manga by Araki Joh and Kenji Nagatomo, and it’s set to premiere in April 2024. But wait, there’s more good news for fans outside Japan—Crunchyroll will be streaming it in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS. That’s quite a wide reach!
Now, let’s talk about the talented folks bringing this anime to life. Ryōichi Kuraya, known for his work on “Tsugumomo” and “Farming Life in Another World,” will be directing it at the studio Liber (the same studio behind “The Ice Guy and His Cool Female Colleague”). Mariko Kunisawa, who’s been involved in “Ascendance of a Bookworm” and “The case files of Jeweler Richard,” will be overseeing the series scripts. And for the cherry on top, Yōichi Ueda, known for “Gangsta.” and “The Night Beyond the Tricornered Window,” is the character designer and chief animation director. Plus, SUNTORY is lending a hand in the production.
Do you know about the magical world of ‘The Demon Sword Master of Excalibur Academy,’ where old stories and new adventures meet? In this blog post, we talked in depth about how this Japanese light book series was turned into an engaging anime, with a focus on the release date that everyone is looking forward to:
If you’re a long-time fan, you might remember that there was a previous 11-episode anime adaptation of the manga back in 2006. Masaki Watanabe directed it, Yasuhiro Imagawa took care of the scripts and series composition, and Hirotaka Kinoshita designed the characters. The art direction was handled by Shigemi Ikeda, and the music was composed by Kaoruko Ohtake.
But what’s “Bartender” all about, you ask? Picture this: a quiet bar in Tokyo’s Ginza district called Eden Hall, managed by the legendary bartender Ryu Sasakura. He’s a genius at crafting the perfect drink for each customer. But it’s not just about the drinks; it’s also about lending a kind ear to the patrons who come in, each with their own life burdens. Ryu’s godly concoctions and comforting words have a magical way of helping people find solutions to their problems and giving them a fresh start at life.
The original manga was serialized in Shueisha’s Super Jump magazine in 2004 and later moved to Grand Jump. It concluded with its 21st and final volume in February 2012.
And here’s a fun fact: “Bartender” even inspired a live-action TV adaptation that premiered in Japan in January 2011. So, whether you’re a die-hard fan or new to the world of Ryu Sasakura and his mystical concoctions, get ready for a captivating anime experience coming your way in 2024! Cheers to that!
