Bartender Glass 115 – Memories





Drink of the Day:


  • 30 ml Bunnahabhain
  • Lemon Juice
  • Tomato Juice
  • Salted Rim

Thoughts (Spoiler Alert):

Not a bad way to end this arc.  Takei finally understands that Sasakura is on his side, and Sasakura was able to confide his past to Takei, and the two became good friends.  I’m sure everyone’s glad to finally learn more about Sasakura’s past, although it probably raised more questions than answered.

I don’t think Don Quixote is a good comparison for Takei.  I’ve never read the novel, but from what I understand, Don Quixote is a delusional knight who challenges things that don’t actually exist.  Takei is fighting for something very real.  The only similarity here is that both their efforts were not appreciated, but it still feels like a stretch to me.  I guess the author needed this reference so he can talk about Robert the Bruce, but it’s just odd to me that Takei would say Don Quixote of all people.

    It depends on your interpretation of the text. Some people understand that Don Quixote is a metaphor for a man who fights for all the goods causes and virtues on earth, but his idealism becomes delusional and meaningless in the cruelty of reality.

    I think the author uses it with that interpretation in mind, that they both fighting teeth and nails for the justice they see in life, for the idealism they have in mind, but it’s all unappreciated, and their effort become meaningless to another observer.

    Wait, the battle is Bannockburn, not Don Quixote.

    The MangaHere link leads to chapter 114, not 115. Also, thanks for the steady work! 🙂

    I agree with ndqanhvn, the reference to Don Quixote didn’t bother me either.
    This character is often used when you want to talk about a fight no one can win.
    Don Quixote is fighting windmill, it has meaning (for him and him alone, but it has meaning) but whatever he does he just can’t win.
    It’s the same here, the reporter is fighting alone for something he truly believes in, but he can’t win.

    And yes, the battle is Bannockburn, but I think everyone has realized the slight mistake :p
