Bartender Glass 109 – Kenpai (Part 2)





Drink of the Day:


Thoughts (Spoiler Alert):

It’s two of the best bartenders back to back, showing us why they’re the best in what they do.  I think it’s also cool that even though Higashiyama is known for his service and Kuzuhara for taste, Higashiyama provided a delicious drink , and that Kuzuhara provided good service (in it’s own way).  And of course, even in the face of two great bartenders, the author still managed to find space for Sasakura to show off some skills.

I think the biggest part of these chapters is the introduction of another apprentice bartender.  A spoiler here is that he’ll eventually become a friend/rival of Tsubasa, very much like Goku and Vegeta.  It’s always good to get interactions like that in manga, since there’s so much possibilities to build on.  I thought that’s how Kuzuhara would be to Sasakura, but he’s much more experienced and older, which made it so that he didn’t feel right as a rival.  The apprentice was also introduced in a good chapter.  This chapter is all about the passing of Kase Gorou and honoring him, and at the end of it, we see a new bartender enter the scene.  It’s like showing the ending of an era and the beginning of the next.
