Haven’t found another way to upload this, but it looks like the manga sites are picking it up, so… Not gonna worry about this for now.

Drinks of the Day:

Blue Coral Reef

  • 40 ml Gin
  • 20 ml Mint Liqueur
  • Dab the glass’s rim with Lemon Juice
  • Garnish with Cherry

Thoughts (Spoiler Alert):

It’s nice to see more appearances from Kurata, but this chapter feels a bit off.  Kurata was Sasakura’s manager at one point, and a more senior bartender, but I feel that given Sasakura’s usual personality, he’s too passive and allows Kurata to say crap to him… or so I thought.  When Sasakura got on Kurata’s case, that’s when it felt right.  Sasakura doesn’t give a damn who he is talking to, he will make his case and stand ground when he thinks he’s right.  He even butt heads with the best bartender Kuzuhara so many times in the past; there was no reason for him to be so passive around Kurata.  I understand he has more respect for Kurata since Kurata was his manager, but it still seemed a bit much.

The other thing that took me by surprise is that Kurata drank at the end of the chapter, even though he just said he doesn’t drink.  But then looking back at chapter 42, Sasakura said that Kurata “rarely” drinks, so I guess … it’s not that big of a deal either.  But still, I thought this was another loophole of some sort, since Kurata didn’t even drink with his father-in-law.

AnimeA’s upload page still isn’t working.  I will try to find another way to upload.

Drinks of the Day:

Banana Daiquiri

  • 30 ml Light Run
  • 1/2 Banana
  • 15 ml Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tsp Sweet Syrup
  • Crushed Ice (or  5~10 Ice Cubes)
  • (Optional) 10 ml Banana Liquor

Thoughts (Spoiler Alert):

The highlight of this chapter is Wakui.  His expressions and attitude towards the newbie bar owner seem so apparent, and yet that guy didn’t seem to notice.  And I love the little tidbit about how he learned things from mangas.  I tell people that all the time, but they never seem to believe me.  I really do think we can learn a lot from mangas.  However, as Bartender has proved time and time again, sometimes the author doesn’t get things right, so it’s best to confirm them on your own as well.

Just a quick update.  I’m slowly getting back into scanlating the series.  I still have far less time than I did before, but I’m working on this when I can.  I’m hoping to have the next chapter out by next week.  Then most likely one chapter every 3-4 weeks after that.

Going on another hiatus

Sorry for the lack of updates lately.  My baby daughter just started walking a few weeks ago, and it’s been crazy.  I was able to keep her in a play pen while I worked, and I can scanlate when I have some free time.  Now I can’t even do my day job without distraction.  I won’t be able to continue until she can walk more steadily and can entertain herself without my supervision.  Best case scenario, it’ll be a month or so.  Worse case, might be a year.

AnimeA’s upload page isn’t working for me again.  Keep getting file upload failure.  Again, if someone would be so kind, please upload this chapter to other websites.  Thanks!

Also, I will going on vacation for 2 weeks, so the next chapter probably won’t come out until end of November.

Drinks of the Day:

Pink Gin

  • 60 ml Plymouth Gin
  • 4-5 drops of Angostura Bitters

Thoughts (Spoiler Alert):

A pretty funny chapter.  Tsubasa getting harassed, but keeping calm.  Sasakura being stupid again.  The author is going with the RPG route where the hero must collect so-and-so items to proceed.  It’s cliche, but I think it works pretty well.  Nothing much for me to say.  All in all, a pretty casual chapter.

Drinks of the Day:

Manhattan

  • 1 Dash Herbal Liqueur
  • 45 ml Whisky
  • 15 ml Sweet Vermouth

Thoughts (Spoiler Alert):

Sasakura and Tsubasa are finally getting things ready to open their own bar.  Tsubasa shows why he is a necessity for this to happen.  Sasakura, despite being a good bartender, lacks any business sense whatsoever.  Without Tsubasa, there’s no way for Sasakura to open his own bar.  As I mentioned before, I always like to see chapters where we see Sasakura’s flaws.  It makes him more human, and these little flaws also make him more likeable.

Still Can’t Find A Better Raw

I will continue to scanlate using the raws that I have.  Each release will probably take longer though, since it’s going to take me a lot more effort to make them presentable.
