Synopsis

Many patients with different problems visit the psychiatric ward of Irabu General Hospital; a trapeze artist suffering from insomnia after suddenly failing his jumps, a gangster afraid of knives and sharp objects and a business man who has an erection 24 hours a day. They undergo counseling by Dr. Ichiro Irabu, who is the child-like son of the hospital director. His assistant is the sullen faced sexy nurse Mayumi. With his mysterious injections, and advice that does not make sense, Dr. Irabu confuses his patients. But at the end of his unique treatments, the patients are lead to digging further into their souls to find peace of mind.

"No one is perfect!"

Everybody has problems, everybody has fears, everybody needs help sometimes, but despite being as flawed as we are society seamlessly moves forward and knowingly or not we are each an important gear in advancing our culture and world.

Kuuchuu Buranko is an artistic, psychedelic expression of problems or doubts we have and getting through them or bettering ourselves. Some of us have common fears and anxieties from not being able to deal with our families and trying to run away, to maybe some stranger problems like uncontrollable erections, as well as everything in-between. Those are the types of experiences we handle in read more

Here is an anime that will turn 90% of its viewers away. Why? Because it dares to be distinctly different. For the remaining 10% who watched after the first episode, you probably know already how great this anime is. Now let's hope to switch these figures, so everyone can enjoy.

Story: 9/10
The story is of Dr. Irabu, a psychiatrist who also happens to be the vice chairman in his fathers hospital. He's an incredibly skilled doctor who welcomes many patients, and his treatment is always vitamin injections. The story revolves around the people with disorders such as OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder), and read more

Very similar style in which they tell their stories. You see events from different perspectives and how everyone is related by the end of each series. They each may seem solely episodic but by the end you see the big picture and how everything fit together. They're both pretty psychological and delve into its characters minds to confront their delusions and problems.
Wonderfully, these two anime capture your attention from the start. The protagonists of the series dually act as minor and major roles in the "episodic" storyline. The two protagonists from Bartender and Trapeze tend to deal with peoples social troubles and help them solve them through strangely fitting and often intriguing ways. The anime Bartender is more serious, while Trapeze cracks jokes to enhance the psychedelic mood. If you're contemplating on watching these and are led astray by the art or concept, give either a try! If you enjoyed or are enjoying either, check the other one out - you won't be disappointed.
