Hills of Silver Ruins (3/11)

Okay, Risai wouldn't actually be quoting Shakespeare (unless she heard it from Taiki), but "Parting is such sweet sorrow" (Romeo and Juliet) is a fairly faithful translation of nagorioshii (名残惜しい).

The impressment of sailors on the high seas was one of the contributing factors to the War of 1812.

The Royal Navy, desperate for the manpower to serve its naval juggernaut, resorted to boarding American ships in search of suspected British subjects in order to seize and "impress" them into service. By 1812, with an estimated 15,000 sailors seized, the United States saw no other alternative but to declare war.
