Bartender: Glass of God is set to premiere in April 2024 with Crunchyroll streaming outside Japan. The anime is inspired by the Shueisha-published Bartender manga written by Araki Joh and illustrated by Kenji Nagatomo, which follows the genius bartender Ryuu.
The main staff for the anime includes Ryouichi Kuraya (Farming Life in Another World) as director, Mariko Kunisawa (Orient Season 2) as series composer, and Youichi Ueda (High-Rise Invasion) as character designer and chief animation director. Liber is handling the animation production.
The Bartender manga ran from 2004 to 2012 with 21 tankoubon volumes. The series was later followed up by Bartender à Paris, Bartender à Tokyo, and Bartender 6stp, which were drawn by Osamu Kajisa. The manga has previously inspired a 2006 anime series produced by PALM COMPANY and directed by Masaki Watanabe (Battle Spirits: Mirage) that ran for 11 episodes and a 2011 TV drama.
