Cocktail Prince Gets a Manga
posted on by Eric Stimson
Cocktail Prince, a multimedia franchise about cocktails reimagined as attractive bartenders, is finally getting its first media release: a manga version, which will debut on December 22 in the February issue of Monthly Sylph. The manga will span five installments and will be drawn by Kina Azusa.
The manga's story involves a different protagonist from the game and takes place earlier. The main character is Asahi Ninomiya, a timid third-year college student. He realizes he must overcome his shyness to get a job, but it's not going very well. He tries his best, but his heart keeps breaking in the face of adversity.
Cocktail Prince has already released an animated music video and many character profiles, including for famous drinks like Long Island iced tea, Grasshoppers, and martinis. Although the game was originally scheduled for a fall release, it has been pushed back into the winter.
