Genshiken Manga Scans Color
I’ve been mentioning in all the posts about the Genshiken anime how much I was looking forward to the final volume of the manga being released. It was released last Tuesday and I’ve had a chance to read it a few times since then and it remains my favorite manga. Without giving any spoilers, I had an idea how something may have played out and when it didn’t happen I was slightly disappointed. But after rereading it and thinking about it I’ll have to agree with the mangaka that the way he handled it was a much better conclusion. Chapter 64 Forever in My Dreams was a particularly excellent chapter entirely wordless except for “Ha Ha” on the final page but filled with emotion.
Del Rey has done a great job with this release with nice extras and very good translation notes along with pointing out the many anime and manga references sprinkled throughout all the volumes. Del Rey made a decision not to print the pages in color, an effort to keep down costs so I downloaded the raw scans from the Japanese release and posted them below. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has in interest in anime, manga, or Japanese culture you’ll learn a lot and you’ll have a great time doing it.
