I’m out traveling this week, so the release will be delayed. Hopefully I can get it done before next Friday.
Once again, I’m having trouble finding information regarding something in the chapter. Normally it’s some random trivia, but this time, it’s the cocktail of the story. So it’s something that I can’t overlook.
— Spoiler Alert —
I need information on the cocktail “Polar Shortcut”, by Paul Doscher(?) of Copenhagen. It’s made with the following ingredients: Dark Rum, White Curacao, Cherry Brandy, Dry Vermouth.
Thus far ,I have been able to find some reference to every single drink the author mentioned. This is the first time that I got nothing back from Google. If anyone knows where to find information on this cocktail, please let me know.

I really appreciate all the help I’ve gotten from the past responses.
In my Bartender post, Jeffry asked me what other psychological mangas are good reads. And as I was typing a response, I soon find that this might be better as a post of it’s own, since I’m also interested in hearing some suggestions myself. But here are some that I have read before.
1. One Outs – Many people have already mentioned this one. It’s by the same author as Liar Games. It focuses on the psychological aspects of baseball (although it does use tricks in other places too). It’s a bit too exaggerated, and baseball mangas were never that interesting to me. But it was a good read nevertheless.
2. Kurosagi - Another one that many have mentioned. It’s a manga that focuses on cons and laws. It’s a bit difficult to read since it involves alot of legal terms and sometimes it is hard to get the full picture. It’s definitely not for everyone, but I can see a niche for this manga.
3. Monster - Perhaps one of the best psychological mangas out there. Unfortunately, it was a bit too confusing for me to grasp the whole story. The story starts with a doctor saving a child who he shouldn’t have saved, and then it involves Nazis. Yes, it’s weird like that, but if you’re into psychological stuff, this is a must-read.
4. 20th Century Boys – By the same author as Monster. It’s not “that” psychological; it’s more like a suspense manga. But I have to recommend this since it’s one of my all-time favorites. The story is engaging and interseting, albeit it gets a bit lame towards the end (felt like the story got out of hand and it became too hard to tie up all the loose ends).
5. Gamble Fish – Relatively new manga. It’s about gambling different games, and it emphasizes how “gambling” changes the way a game is played. It’s not that great, and the story’s wacked, but it’s interesting in it’s own way. I don’t highly recommend this, but some may like it.
6. Doubt – A relatively short manga. A group of kids plays a cellphone game called “Rabbit Doubt”. In the game, there’s a wolf, who kills other players (rabbits) one by one, and the rabbits have to figure out who the wolf is (kinda like Mafia). To no surprise, people really starts dying.
7. Lost+Brain (thanks jimjim)– kinda like deathnote where the protagonist tries to take over the world. this time tho, through hypnotism.
8. Suicide Island (thanks jimjim) – very psychological. everyone who fails committing suicide is taken to an island where they can attempt to commit suicide over again.
9. Ikigami (thank – Raysen_ht) People are injected with a time bomb when they are born, and are randomly chosen to die. The governament knows who will be the next dead person a couple of days before, and they send an Ikigami (a note) to him/her/family saying that that person has 24h to live. Its about the choices one can make when they learn they are going to die.
That’s about all the ones I can think of off-hand that is related to psychology. Please feel free to recommend them in the comments and I will add them to this list when I see it.
Although it’s a bit late, I’m taking this week off due to Thanksgiving. I’ll be back to my normal pace again starting next Monday.
Happy Turkey Day Everyone!!
Ok… So I just~~ found that the raws provided on MangaHelper and other websites require at least some level of cleaning prior to typesetting… I was under the impression that raws were uploaded AFTER they have been properly cleaned, but I guess that’s not the case. And that should explain why Chapter 86 and 87 turned out bad in quality. I will go read up on some tutorials on cleaning and typesetting so my scans will be of higher quality.
That said, if anyone know of any good beginner tutorials for cleaning and typesetting, please let me know.
Thanks in advance!
