Thoughts (Spoiler Alert):

I read this final story with mixed feelings.  On one hand, I liked how the story ends.  It wasn’t anything too crazy.  Some major changes are happening, but the author put in a good amount of content that can be conveyed in 3 chapters.  This manga also ended with the same cocktail that started it all – whisky with water.  I still remember reading that first chapter, expecting a fancy cocktail from Sasakura, but instead, I get completely blown away by whisky with water.  That’s what really got me hooked and wanted to read more.  It’s almost obligatory to end with that cocktail, but it felt very appropriate for this last story as well.  The situation fits too if you think about it.  Kuzuhara is probably stressed out by the merger.  A whisky with water is probably the best choice to revitalize him.

With all that said, I still felt this ending didn’t give the readers enough.  It makes me wonder if this manga was cut off due to a lack of popularity.  If the manga was popular enough, I believe the author would’ve been given more chapters to work in a longer ending.  Sure, Kuzuhara is an appropriate person to bring in for the finale, but I really would like to see the author at least touch on what happens with some of the other main characters.  Miwa showed up in the end, but what about Kawakami?  What about Yuri?  Or even a one-shot cameo of Kitagata would be cool.

All in all, Bartenders will remain as one of my favorite mangas.  I’ve been reading more seinen slice of life, and it’s hard to find another manga with the same combination of seriousness and chillness.  Not to mention all the LPT (life pro tips) that it contains.

I hope everyone enjoyed this series as much as I did.  I’ve set my eyes on another manga to translate already.  Something very different.  I will be working on a different project first though (a game of sorts).  Once I’m done with that, I will resume scanlating.

Lastly, I want to thank everyone for sticking with me over the past 8-9 years (I lost count really).  I’ve probably gone on more hiatus than Hunter x Hunter’s author (lol probably not).  I know it’s frustrating to wait for these new chapters to come out, and yet I’ve seen nothing but encouragements.  You guys are awesome!
