Bartender Glass 93 – Class Reunion (Part 3)





Drink of the Day:

Elijah Craig

Thoughts (Spoiler Alert):

An interesting 3-chapter story involving 3 different Bourbons.  It’s an interesting format that the author chose.  Three different customers with three different problems, and yet they all know each other.  Sasakura was able to help them individually, and they were able to come together and come to terms with their past.

The author did a good job to build these characters.  Kuramochi lives with a routine, he just want to get by, not really pushing forward.  He probably felt bad about betraying Fujiki and could not allow himself to live happily.  He probably thinks he does not deserve it.  On the other hand, Ogino’s constantly pushing, doing anything he can to get ahead.  He wants to keep going forward and forget about the past.  He doesn’t want to face it, and constantly tries to avoid the issue.  And Fujiki Jr. is furious not only with those two, but also with his own father.  He believes that his father shouldn’t forgive them for ruining his life.

The ultimate irony here is that Fujiki is the only one who got punished for the fire, and his life wasn’t exactly a walk in the park, but he seemed to have lived happily.  In contrast, Ogino and Kuramochi got away from their crimes, but they had to live with their guilt.  So one moral is that people will have to face consequences for their actions one way or another.  You may have escaped for the moment, but it’ll affect you somehow, some way.

    What an excellent little arc. I was wondering what it might have been culminating to, but it surprised me nonetheless. Thanks for the hard work.

    Wow, I forgot this manga for a while, since I started working a day job, but catching up to the latest chapter and seeing that you were still releasing it regularly felt so great. Thank you for your hard work!

    Hey, love your work CityShrimp I have been following your work with bartender ever since chapter 16. But I was wondering, since I dont think Bartender will ever get licensed in North America since its not well known is it possible to put all your scanlations into 1 file to download? Because I would love it to have it all in my phone or tablet so I can read your work where ever I go. Thanks for all your hard work 🙂

      I didn’t translate the earlier chapters, so I never thought of compiling them all into one zip file. I don’t mind compiling them by volume, but probably won’t be zipping them all into one giant file.

        Im fine with not having chapter 1-15 because I have the anime as well. Its fine if you can’t zip them to one giant file, it was just a suggestion. Anyways best of luck scanlating the next upcoming chapters, will read your scanlations with loyalty 😀
