Bartender Glass Of God Episode 3 Review and Recap – An Experienced Bartender

Bartender Glass Of God Episode 3 Review Sasakura Gets Criticised 

In this episode, the manager of The Cardinal decides to hire a backup bartender as there is no surety that Sasakura will join Cardinal. They are concerned that Sasakura might not agree to their offer and leave them hanging. Plus, the Chairman is particularly obsessed with the counter bar as he must compete with the legendary bartender, Kuzuhara. He works at the infamous Bar K, which caters to the best of the best in the country. 

After this, we see Yukari attend a high-end party where Kuzuhara gets a prestigious award in Bartending and is hailed as Mr Perfect. He is a proud bartender who knows about the Chairman and his habit of being picky with his drinks and bartenders. But even he becomes surprised and kind of offended when he gets to know that a new bartender like Sasakura has managed to impress the manager. Kuzuhara then goes to meet and test Sasakura, and there, things get pretty interesting.

This is the first episode where we see someone who is as much, if not more talented, and experienced than our protagonist in the anime. Kuzuhara has been in this business for a long time, and it is only natural that he will feel restless that a younger not-so-experienced bartender, has an impact on the Chairman.   

Hence, it becomes important for him, as a senior, to set things straight with the newer rival. But this does more good than bad because if someone is imperfect, that means there is room for them to grow. However, it is true that a blatant and outright dismissal of efforts does hurt, even when you know about your mistakes. 

This was apparent with the new customer, whom Sasakura had to provide with some rather harsh words just to motivate.
