Bartender Glass 90 – Tennessee Waltz (Part 2)





Drink of the Day:

Tennessee Waltz

  • 40 ml Creme de Cacao
  • 10 ml Pomegranate Syrup
  • Soda
  • (Optional) Lemon Juice

Thoughts (Spoiler Alert):

Didn’t really like the second part of this story.  I always disliked it when the author made it so the conversation is one-sided.  So Itami made some comments about Sanae’s health, and when Mari questioned him “overexert herself?”, he goes off on another topic about her parents.  I really don’t like the disconnect it creates.  Some may argue that Itami’s sort of just talking to himself, but I still don’t like it.  Especially since Itami and Mari are already having a conversation.  It seems like the author had no choice but to just let Itami change the subject so the backstory will be brought out.

I also don’t quite understand the story… I’m not sure if it’s the Chinese translation that I got is kind of weird, but I read this chapter 5-6 times, and I still can’t figure out exactly what happened.  So did the chain of events happen like this?

  1. Mari’s mom and Sanae are friends
  2. Sanae had a relationship with Mari’s father
  3. Sanae introduces Mari’s mother to Mari’s father
  4. They get married and conceive Mari
  5. Mari’s mother leaves them for some reason, and Mari’s father goes back to Sanae

Is that what happened?

    ohhh, thanks (again) for this. Will have to read the entire 2 part story to see if your chain of events is correct. It’s really annoying when a storyline isn’t clear about some things, isn’t it?

    the drama used this plot for one of their episodes. what you put down was basically more or less what happened in the drama, but i don’t know if that was what the author intended.

    As JL said, there’s a live action drama that focused on this story for an episode. They spell it out pretty clearly there. It’s as you’ve written. Sanae and Mari’s father are lovers. Sanae introduces him to her friend (Mari’s mom). Her friend steals him away, they get married, have a kid, she bails on them. Sanae is left to pick up the pieces.

    I have no trouble assuming that this is the way the author intended it. They reference the song itself fairly heavily. The lyrics cover the same scenario.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone 🙂 Glad I got the story straight.
