Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)
There were lots of problems in this chapter, some of which I addressed in the scanlation, but I’ll talk about them here too. First of all, the author screwed up on how to take a Tequila shot. Lime is last, not first. It’s almost common knowledge here in America, not sure how it is in Japan, but I have to say I’m disappointed that he made such a fundamental mistake. Also, that method did not originate from Mexico. This one I don’t hold too much against him, since I didn’t know either until I read it on wiki. But I really hope he could be giving some reliable information in this manga.
The story itself was touching once again. It teaches us that there’s no such thing as a pointless life. Shimaoka started to regret living the way he did, and believed he could’ve been happier if he had continued to act and be with Yuzuki Mieko. But Sasakura, though young, is experienced in guiding people to face their problems. And he is also knowledgeable enough to find a liquor and story which fits Shimoka’s circumstance. This brings me to my next point. It’s weird how that seemed to be the first time Sasakura met Shimaoka. If Shimaoka is a regular, Sasakura should’ve already met him before.
Question of the Day
Do you regret that life that you have lived and what would you do differently if you had the choice?
