Keita Machida (seen in costume below) will play Ryōichirō Amemiya, the handsome young bartender of Mitsuboshi Yōshudō.
Yoshiaki Murao and Juntarō Kobayashi are among the directors for the show. Moral, Kenichi Tani, Reiko Murano, and Akihiro Toda are penning scripts for the series. Rock band I Don't Like Mondays is performing the show's theme song "Entertainer."
The manga's story centers on a hole-in-the-wall bar that has a handsome bartender and a silent chef. The bartender serves cocktails as he gives an ear to a patron's problems, while the chef serves delicacies made from simple canned food.
Asai previously drew the Alice in the Country of Clover: Knight's Knowledge and Alice in Twin World: Love, Storms, and Flower Clocks manga. Seven Seas Entertainment released both series in English.
