    Genshiken is a short and enjoyable little series. It's one of the more recent 'Otaku coming out of the Closet' series. (And to understand what that means, you have to understand what the Japanese usage of 'otaku' means. In the US anime/manga fandom, 'otaku' means dedicated fan. The original Japanese usage also means dedicated fan, but with the emphasis on drooling obessive fanatical...)

    The story is about college students, where an socially aggressive girl tries to gain the attention of an old childhood friend (who has become a anime/video game otaku) The storylines are slow, without much action, (but with lots of sexual innuendo...) If you have a interest on what the core Japanese anime/manga fandom is like... (which is now estimated to be a 4 billion $$$ plus market in Japan...) you should see this series...

    Re: Genshiken

    Oooohhh, another Genshiken thread...I've done two of it myself and theres been one other as well...so for now this is the fourth one I've seen. LOL

    Ok, back to topic. ^_^;

    Genshiken is really awesome. Its just great to watch something "normal". No super powers or alien beings...just regular ppl living their otaku lifestyles. ^_^

    The anime was well made. I've watched the entire series. I just wished that they went further...I really wanted to see Ogiue animated...T_T

    The manga is REALLY awesome...vol. 6 came out while back here in the US...Ogiue's cosplay....>////<

    ....I cant wait til the later volumes are realeased...and I'm hoping for a sequel for the anime....I mean, Kujian gets its own show now so why not another one of Genshiken?
    ->:Be descriptive in your posts or its like you didnt post at all:<-

    Genshiken is not a anime series for everyone. If your looking for action and adventure with lots of loud colorful exploisons, then Genshiken is NOT the series for you. If you like slow 'Slice of Life' storylines, and consider yourself an advanced dedicated anime/manga fan, then your really going to like 'Genshiken'

    For a anime/manga series along the same lines, but with more action, humor, and 'fanservice', there is always 'Comic Party' which is more focused on the amateur manga fandom...

    Re: Genshiken

    I just started Genshiken. I have yet to start the second manga unfortunately. But, from what I have read so far, I like it. It has a lot of the funny things that go along with being an otaku in it. A manga/anime about people who love manga/anime.

    Wow, this series sounds different! I think I might have to check it out myself. I am getting a little tired of the more childish anime out there, this may be worth a try.
