Hi er its ok cause I figuered out how to copy the script placed on the Bartender wiki into Notepad and saved as .ass format. After that i muxxed it with the xvid4psp pmp format.

First time i converted to avi the video didn't have subs. I saved a copy into avi also haha. gonna put it on my Sarotech Abiggs 2.5" hdd player and bring the thing to my neighbours house for some alcohol goodies.

The story was nice but its wasn't something that really! grabbed me. More-so the music does it for me in the show, plus I really like the Voice overs. Though-out the whole episodes I think I was enjoying the music more then anything else. Oh! and it looks like the ending has changed! Nice to see that its going to change every week =)

It seems that the concept of male oriented slice-of-life feel-good anime isn't taking off well. Shame, I quite like it. Contrary to what many people who download it believe, this is not a show about drinking. The cocktails aren't the point of the show, they're just a way of summing up what the episode taught us about someone's life.

This show's closest relative is probably Human Crossing Point.

I love Bartender. And I don't even drink.

Its appealing to adults who were from the 80`s perhaps. But I like the storytelling, its unique and refreshing.

Also, both the Op and Ed songs are killer good. The Op just makes me want to dance to it or something. Its fun.

Yup, Natural High is awesome. And the male vocal in the OP is Shiina Ringo's Brother, Junpei.

I think the drinks can be both a reason for someone to get started with this show and also something that doesn't drive away those who don't drink at all but rather just helps tie the stories together within the episodes. I've enjoyed all 3 episodes.

I cried watching episode 3, it was that good. I love this 1 shot episode style (pardon the pun) [no pun intended on that pun quote]

btw, any news on the OST?

And uh, the ending video changes huh? It was that cafe style in episode 1, now the ending shows a margarita.

Likewise. Of course, I also love Aria. And I don't even ride a gondola.

With such a novel premise and style of presentation, Bartender looks interesting indeed. Suffice that I felt like a water and whiskey myself after episode 1. Conveniently, I'll be turning 21 in less than 2 weeks.

Was at Hard Rock Cafe yesterday, and guess what made me down a Martini, and a glass of Jim Beam Black?

I absolutely love the OP as well.. like tritoch said, its fun, and if you see Lunar's sub of the lyrics, its very fitting too. Also, tritoch, each ED features a different drink being made. However, I do want to see more of that lady doing the singing for the ED.

Ep 3.

Yet another incredibly heart-warming episode. If a bit ridiculous. I mean, I think the only way to swallow the fact that the character in this episode could come to the realization and then self-redemption after a single Margarita is with a grain of salt (lol get it?).

But they did do a really good job of painting the character through reflection. I guess that's what this series does particularly well. Which is good... a series like this just wouldn't survive if it didn't.

Series continues to deliver pretty much exactly what I figured from the beginning... which is good. If future eps are as enjoyable and heart-warming as this one, well, I'd say we have a winner.

Delightful, episode 2. Delightful, and brought me near to tears too.

Sorrow-K, I think this is a winner. The abstract way of story-telling only enhances its... flavour.. so to speak. It's touching; it's intellectual -- Ryuu's guesswork, and the revelation at the end that what was important wasnt really the exact drink, but the feelings it was staked on -- and with this episode, it became insightful too:

Bringing across this story in such a way without making it seem an overdone Father-son plot, and later, the Grandfather's reason for change of heart revealed; tho best of all: Ryuu's realization about old-drinks at the end.

The scene that most stuck with me was the figure of an old man silhouetted, raising a glass to an empty seat, with tears flowing from his eyes. It brings tears to one's eyes. Then again, I always had a weak spot for Father-Son relationships.

The epilogue perfectly summed up the whole episode by going back to what it started off with in the beginning: Bars having no menus. This is a beauty, indeed. Its honestly rare that an episode leaves me with a smile like that, the smile I’m wearing as I write this. Heart-warming indeed. A beauty.

I wish I could have a Kaku.

Nope, I'm not from Dallas. I believe Hard Rock is International.

Thats great to hear! I need more of the OP, and hopefully, the ED.

You know, I'm wondering if those two Bartenders in episode 2, the old-hands, are based on real people. I hope to see more of them. They have really dependable faces.


Lol thanks physics! :P =D

Was at the start of Episode 3, then decided to leave it till another night. Its such a waste watching this back to back. I want to spread this series out as far as possible. Anyway, just wanted to say that the OST sounds really nice too.

And, even if this is nothing like Mushishi, I think its likely that this will become my Mushishi-fix of the season.

This series is great. I loved ep.1-2, ep3 is not bad either, but the story is a little bit too far fetched. I don't see how that glass of wine is going to make up for anything. But the history of the margarita is interesting. If they keep it this interesting, then it would definitely be a winner.

Yep, it'll be out on the 29th November and include 31 tracks for ¥2,625 (inc. tax). Both YesAsia and CDJapan have it available for preorder if anyone wants to buy it (I may well do after the music in episode 2...)


Also, for financially suicidal fans, the first DVD will be released on the 20th December for ¥4,935. It'll have the first 3 episodes, and the first presses will include an Edenhall coaster (because you KNOW you want one), and a full-colour booklet with cocktail recipes and real photos of them. Hurrah! I'm tempted, but there may be a HD version later...
