Genshiken 2 Screen Caps

Sasahara receives the acceptance letter from Comic Fest for the and calls Kugayama to give him the news, Kugayama waiting in line for a job interview is as laid back as ever upon hearing the news. When he tells Madarame the good news, Madarame goes into a Gundam fantasy picturing himself as Amuro Ray and Sasahara as Char Aznable. But Sasahara brings him back to reality as they talk about the content for the book. Sasahara wants a hentai doujinshi featuring the Chairman from Kujibiki Unbalance. Then fall into an embarrassed silence when Ogiue enters the room. She wants to know what’s going on and when they inform her of the acceptance and request her aid in making the book she starts to sketch immediately, being secretly impressed that the Genshiken is actually a serious club.

Genshiken is my favorite manga and anime it’s a slice of life story about a group of college students who come together in the “The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture” or Genshiken it is a club devoted to anime, manga and video games, otaku paradise in other words. I believe this would make an excellent live drama and would attract fans of Densha Otako and Akihabara@deep. Otaku and anime fans of Comic Party and Doujin Works will probably also like this much more realistic depiction of Comiket held biannually in Tokyo. Drama fans would probably enjoy the interaction amongst the club members. I would highly recommend that you watch this series in order. The first season has been available on DVD for awhile and can be picked up quite cheaply DeepDiscount has the three disc set for $26, and the 3 episode ova can still be downloaded. The final volume of the manga will be released on Nov 27, 2007.

The first episode of 12 has been released and can be downloaded with English fansubs from the Dattebayo Fansubs tracker here.

This is one of my favorite series for this season. Which character is your favorite? Mine is Ogiue. She is much more complex compared with other characters. An otaku expresses her hatred of being labeled as an otaku. What else can you ask for? Just finished watching episode 6. Could not stop laughing.GiGi

Which character is your favorite? It's Ogiue and her best stuff is still to come. Genshiken is my all time favorite manga and the anime is just as terrific. In episode 6 I love the way the anime expanded on the manga as Ogiue stands and listens as they talk about her at Comiket. Also DB is doing a great fansub job with good notes I never would have noticed Zetsubou Sensei walking around at the convention on my first viewing without the fansub notes.

My favorite fantasy ending to the manga which is due to be released at the end of the month is that Saki dumps Kohsaka and starts dating Madarame. Can't wait to read what Kio Shimoku came up with for a conclusion.

What is your favorite episode so far? Mine is episode 5 when Ogiue's imagination goes wild. I went through it 2nd time and still appreciated its humor very much.

:) Just hope that your fantasy ending may come true. GiGi
