So... Bartenders are all the same...
And they left some romanthical set up for the main pair. Go, Miwa!(?)

Thanks for the answer, Juliab. But the OST is way better. :D

Not random customers, but his seniors that he invited to taste a new cocktail he made up. So probably he learned the trade from them.

Oh my, he can be ill? I mean like a real human? XD He seemed like somebody who would never become ill or something like that but guess I was wrong :P Interesting episode :)

Amazing episode! His senpais were both cool, and their deep & clam voices really made for a good atmosphere with the bgm.

He's a lot more human in the manga. The anime so far hasn't really expanded on Ryuu.

Haha I really thought the same thing, but I'm surprised to hear/read in the post above that he's more human in the manga. I guess that's nice, I might check the manga sometime.
This episode was different indeed, but it was good.

Aw he collapsed he seemed invincible.

That girl throws me off, how she's narrator and 'main' character at the same time.
That scream she let out was very unnecessary.

Yes, strange episode, but very nice.

That girl's reactions were quite random, why?
why she screamed? why was she uneasy?

The OST is the very masterpiece of this show.

As expected of Sasakura's senpais; they are both badass.

His face was just pale/feeble due to illness. The fact that artwork did nothing to depict it (meaning he looked normally throughout the episode) is... a minor setback :P

Even though the usual bartender had barely any screen time it was a good episode.

That was an interesting episode, letting Ryu have some time off while the other bartenders take over.

The Rusty Nail for the politician was very apt.

The Bull Shot for the politician's lawyer was an interesting choice, but it wasn't too important; what mattered was that the lawyer and the bartender's professions found common ground in dealing with upset people and revivals of spirit.

Despite it not being Ryuu as the bartender this time, I enjoyed the episode nonetheless. We got to see Ryuu's two senpai, and both dealt with their respective customer really well. The politician's parents were harsh though, "save that dream for when you sleep." Ouch. What a shame that he had to give up on his dream of becoming a children's book author. I liked that The Little Prince was mentioned here as well.

The second customer, the lawyer, was interesting. I like what was served to her, so convenient that he had beef broth :P Wonder what he would've served had he not made that for Ryuu. Bull Shot/Bloody Bull sounds like something I'd like to try, a savory cocktail.

A lot of respect to these bartenders (idk how they are in real life though), so much patience and they have such a relaxing aura. Also, did I mention how classy this anime seems? Especially with the insert song in this episode. I had a smile upon my face the whole way through. The bartenders are not only relieving their customers, but also my soul.

Aw, poor Ryuu. Get well soon~

Miwa was right to not drink the Black Witch since she's a girl weary of the suspicious ingredient he added, but Ryuu isn't a bad person to do that haha. But I guess you can't be that trusting irl. Such a shame, though. I never want his drinks to be wasted x'D

Too bad Ryu had to be sick, I sure missed his interpretation of the drinks. But I think that old man did a great job in serving those customers, especially that annoying lawyer woman who was served "Bull shot".

Good job Kuzuhara-San and get well Ryu.

Instead of Bull shot, he should have served that obnoxious lady bull shit

This was a good change of pace and honestly the fact that it was two customers instead of one really worked. I honestly think this series should be 10-15 minute episodes per glass to quicken pacing.

Also interesting song choice, you hardly hear English music in your Chinese cartoons.

One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

Lmao she just left him on the floor there, not to mention that weird scream. This girl is weird.

But, to be fair, it was likewise very weird of him to put something in that drink and then claim he didn't. What was up with that?
