Just thinking... Usually the case is the manga has more content than its anime counterpart, and I hope this is also true for Bartender. We could see more stories coming from Eden Hall if this is true—a small possibility at the very least—but with an ending like that, I'm not sure how a second season could even effectively begin.

This is a very enjoyable show. I learned a lot of the life leasons and the different types of drinks. No longer will I find Bars intimitating. I wish there was a bar like this show, so I can drink to drown all my sorrows.

It seems really unlikely given the ending in episode 11. Perhaps someone here has read the manga and knows if there's more material?

Don't think so there are 6 volumes of the manga. But on the website it says there is a 9 volume out. There is another manga called Sommelier made by the same mangka. It hasn't been adapted to a anime yet.

Edit: The current statis on manga-updates says the manga is still going.

Probably like a storyline like Bartender, there is a Sommelier who helps people.

Ohai...

Well, resurrecting this thread from the dead:

Just watched this after reading the manga, absolutely loving it. It's refreshing from all that's airing at the moment, and it's informative too.

Why is this anime so terribly pretentious and cheap.

Watch it again when you're forty. You might have different opinion.

Hmm, does it slow down so much by then that I can appreciate <5 fps anime?

Well, I did like the first episode, but I just felt the whole thing had pretty poor production values and I dunno... it didn't really feel like stuff was happening.

I guess I should have been drinking when watching this. Perhaps that was the intended use.

The first episode is probably the weakest. My favorites are the second episode, where we learn about Miwa's past, and the episode with the two movie directors, where we learn about the rebellious history of scotch. The Hemingway episode is pretty good, too.

As for the production values, I never pay much attention to those if I find the stories and characters involving.

The episode with the two movie directors was fantastic, as was the Hemingway one, which was as close to an anime adaptation of Hemingway as we're likely to get.

I always found this show to be a very theatrical one. I found it very easy to imagine episodes being put on as a stage play without much change. And I liked that.

It was never about the quality of the animation, it was about the quality of the writing. I loved this show. It is in my "Anime for Grown-Ups" list.

It has nothing to do with my age. It's my fault for watching this since I don't even like alcohol to begin with, but the premise and ideas behind it I simply cannot swallow.

Production values do matter to me though, at times I felt like I was watching a picture book instead of animation. To me that's a problem because it's making poor use of the animated medium. It doesn't have to be amazing by any means, just reasonable. Having 2 frames per second literally at times was just a bit tiresome.

I discovered today that someone has posted the entire series of Lunar fansubs to YouTube. The AS page for this show has dead tracker links. They are in 360p, though, not the 720p originals, but we've already talked about whether visual quality is what makes this show or not. I still feel sad for little Miwa in 360p or 720p.

Someone composed a convenient playlist. Who knows how long the show will be left alone, but it's been a couple of months now.

Thanks for the link!
It always caught my attention everytime there was a manga update but never got into reading it.

Really liked the story though I don't like alcohol that much (I even hate beer). That bartender is amazing and the origin of Eden Hall was interesting.

I didnt like this manga much either when I first read it in university, that was maybe 5-6 years ago.

Then I got married, have a kid, started working, reread this manga. Now I think this is one of the best manga ever It's weird I know, but I think there are certain episodes where I identify so much with the bar clients that I feel as if it's I'm visiting Sasakura. If you dont have this connection it will probably feel like a really average manga.
