Bartender

The site:

http://www.bartender-tv.com

I have read it is going to be about the bartender listening to the patrons stories, in what might be a "different story each week" format, but nothing else beyond that.

I hope it is as good as I am thinking it might be.

Anyone else looking forward to this one?

I think I'll watch the first episode just to see how absurd the premise really is. From what I'm read on the anime's website, it's going to have the bartender guy making cocktails soooo good that they can heal people's sorrows. Kind of like mahou shoujo, but replacing the heroine with a bartender and magic powers with drinks.

Bartender isn't out in fansubs yet. It's not even showing yet.

I have some minor expectations, but it really depends on the overall presentation.
Will it be a mature and realistic presentation of a relation formed between strangers bridged by cocktails, and how peoples face the sorrows and troubles of their life with the help of others and find lessons in life, accompanied with beautiful, classical piano music arrangements, beautiful visual directing (( these kinds of anime need strong visual directing to help convey emotions better, especially if it's going to be episodic )), and a realistic depiction of both professional bartending and flair bartending without juggling exagerrations?

Or will it be a shouneny unrealistic show where customer comes in, gets drunk, tells life story, and the bartender uses his l33t powahs to juggle 10 bottles in the air, mix his cocktails and offer it to the customer ON TEH HOUSE, the customer drinks it, gets a Chuuka Ichiban-ish/Addicted to Curry-ish reaction, and is revitalized with vigor?

Well, if the anime will be anything similar to the manga, it'll be the former, Nightengale. The manga is quite mature and believable and doesn't even have furigana, which means that it's probably aimed at the 18-25 crowd.

Random Curiosity's preview of the fall shows is great resource. It gives a brief and unsympathetic outline. But I think the setup could be good. It all depends on how it's used. According to the Anime News Network Bartender page he links to, yes, there is a manga.

But this doesn’t sound like this is a competitive bartending anime, but rather a drama about a bartender helping people out.
I see there are at least five volumes of the manga, so someone must like it. It appears in a Shueisha magazine called Super Jump, which is marketed as a magazine for young men (late teens and early twenties).

No wonder Bartender is targeted to a mature audience.

Looking at the group photo, the supporting cast/staff look quite....old.

^ They'll prolly play the people that need "healing." Not a bad choice, we'll need really tired voicing. Anyhow thats good then, I'd prefer a mature theme over a mere bartending compeitition-like theme.

Nicely put; exactly what I want. I suppose the best bartender would be the bartender that could soothe troubled customers with his words or listening ear, rather than throw bottles with "l33t powah."

I'll admit it, I'm intrigued, though the intrigue is largely driven by 4chan /a/'s premature non-sensical hype of this series before anyone's even seen an episode. But, the potential's there, both for a masterpiece or a crap-fest. I'm with Lost, though, of Nightengale's two choices, I seriously hope it turns out to be the first one. That's a concept for an unforgettable anime right there. I picture Mushishi, but totally taking place in a bar and minus the supernatural aspect.

If it turns into the second choice, I think I'll bail after a couple of episodes.

Lol.. its interesting the comparision this is getting with Mushishi; I myself can't help thinking of Mushishi when I see Bartender.

Dangerous tho, it may leave us disillusioned with Bartender; like it did with Kino no Tabi for me.

Ah, the old Mushishi-Kino no Tabi comparison. I saw Kino no Tabi before I saw Mushishi and, even though I'd say Mushish is the better anime, KnT is very, very close to it in my eyes. Both have different strengths and weaknesses though, but they are very interesting anime to compare. I do agree with what you're saying. If we begin to expect Mushishi from Bartender, we're almost certain to be disappointed. Curbing our expectations is the best tactic (as it always is for any new anime), particularly considering that an anime of Mushishi's calibre only comes along maybe once or twice a year.

I second that. From what I can see (from the manga), Bartender rather reminds me of Aria. Don't ask me why... And it features a (regular) bishoujo - yay!

Well, personally I think there are huge differences between Mushishi and Kino no Tabi - except for the fact that both are travelers. Mushishi never questions, say, "systems", Kino does the whole time. Mushishi is, imho, more about interaction between people themselves, Kino is more about the environment in which people live (you might notice that the villages that Ginko visits are basically all the same - they only vary by different characters and mushis). Ginko tries to interact and help all the time - in fact, his proposal of traveling is to help people to get along with mushis, Kino tries to stay out of everything and be neutral. Imho, Ginko is a caring and warm-hearted person who only appears cool on the outside while Kino is seriously emotionally indifferent towards things (except for episode 13) and only acts out of morality and politeness. I even think that the atmosphere of these anime are rather different (Ginko doesn't talk much to himself and you don't have any cheesy monologue/dialogues).

Oh by the way, I prefer Kino no Tabi over Mushishi *hrr* I'm more interested in "systems" than human interaction or mystery after all.

^ I have to agree with your second paragraph. Further Mushishi is believable and grounded in realism as far as humans are concerned, yet KnT is heavily allegorical at parts. Thats why I think a comparison between the two is pretty unfair; even if KnT is the only one that comes near to Mushishi, its really "near" by a longshot. Sorry, off-topic.

Haha. That was my initial reaction upon reading someone's translation of the synopsis of the show. Turns out I misinterpreted what he wrote. Oh well, if it turns out to be Aria without the cuteness or Mushishi without the supernatural aspect, I'll be happy. I'm watching this show out of curiosity more than anything else, so we'll see where it goes.

So far, there's nothing in the trailer that hasn't already been obvious about this show.

But I guess it was good to hear Ryo's voice, since he sounds a lot more "bishouneny" than I expected him to be.

I'm guessing it's Jun Fukuyama because a) it sounds like him and b) he's in absolutely everything these days...

Soft&effeminate voice = "bishouneny" voice. 8)

I think I've taken the Mushishi comparison a bit too literally, since I've expected him so sound like Ginko or one of the characters from Hachikuro. 8)
