Bartender Glass 96 – The Bitterness of Beer





Drink of the Day:


Thoughts (Spoiler Alert):

The start of a new arc.  We also see a new face, Wakui Tsubasa.  I think it fills the void that Bartender has been missing, which is to see the bartender world from an amateur’s perspective.  There were glimpses of that with Kamikawa, but she’s not an entire newbie, she just… kinda sucks.  With Wakui, we can see how people are trained to become full-fledged bartenders.   Obviously we can’t take everything in the manga as how things are in reality, but there are probably some similarities.  I think the timing is also perfect.  It wouldn’t be right to give Sasakura an apprentice too early, since he still have things to learn.  He’s known as the Glass of Gods, but there were obviously plenty of Bartenders that are of higher caliber.  But we’ve seen what Sasakura have gone through over the last 12 volumes, and it seems right for him to take the next step and become a master.  This is probably my favorite arc of the entire series, hope you guys will enjoy it as much as I did.

    The snippets that I hear in the news about the master-apprentice relationship are that it’s a dying model. There was a documentary a few years back that you may have seen:
