Another Monday another episode of Mr. Nietzsche in the convenience store. Once again this review will have some spoilers for the episode. The vocabulary list is at the bottom, so just scroll down and take a look if you dont want any spoilers.This episode begins with Nii and Matsu dealing with rude customers who want to buy cigarettes. Their rudeness really bothers Nii in particular, until he comes to the realization that the more they smoke the closer they are to death and the closer they are to paying him for a funeral. Which is really morbid but hilarious, that’s one way to get over rude customers. Continue reading

Mr_Nietzsche_ep3_01

Yay, on schedule this time *pats self on the back*.  Happy Memorial day to those in the states, to everyone else I hope your enjoying your Monday. Like the other reviews this review will have spoilers for the episode, so watch it and come back. This episode starts of with Matsukoma  admitting that he still likes plush toys and figures (who doesn’t?). Nii says that he didn’t think he would be the type to collect, but rather the type to not have a real job, which hits Matsukoma right in the gut. We also learn that Nii’s hobby is music and he plays the wooden fish, I have no idea what that is. Apparently in the manga they actually show his band, I hope that they show it in the show as well that would be funny. Continue reading

Mr. Nietzsche in the convenience store! ep.1

Mr_Nietzsche_ep1_01

After being sick for a whole week and making sure my mom had an awesome mothers day, I finally had the time to watch Mr. Nietzsche in the Convenience Store! Yay me *claps for self* This TV drama is an adaptation of a popular shojo manga comedy series of the same name, I’ve never read it before so this series is completely new to me. The show centers around two convenience store employees, Matsukoma and Nii, who work the night shift. Matsukoma is a college graduate who has been looking for work for 2 years, and Nii is a Buddism major still in school.

The way that I decided to watch the series is first without any subtitles on, then again with the subtitles in order to catch everything that I missed. I do this to see how much I can understand on my own, and increase my listening comprehension. I also make notes of new words in a notebook as I watch. I am watching the series on crunchyroll which allows you to turn off the subtitles by right-clicking and selecting no subtitles. At the end of this post I will place the list of vocab words that I made from the show.
