I often find myself puzzled by the anime industry's undying obsession with high school. Genre or story appear to have no influence-- teenagers are here, there and just about everywhere else. It is rare to find an adult (or any character above the age of 17) unless they are filling the obligatory teacher or villain role. Which is a bummer, as titles like Genshiken show just how fun the university setting can be.

Coming after two full seasons, Genshiken: Nidaime might seem confusing or out of place. The characters' voices have changed. Nearly everyone from the main series has graduated and moved on with their read more

“To a hikikomori, winter is painful because everything feels cold, frozen over, and lonely. To a hikikomori, spring is also painful because everyone is in a good mood and therefore enviable. Summer, of course, is especially painful...” - Welcome to the N.H.K.

For most fans of anime or manga, we might all once experienced a moment when we went through a phase where we couldn't stop watching/reading a piece of work from a franchise until we get that feeling of, “ah, now that was a masterpiece....”. I know I have and those moments feels great especially for something we've enjoyed. However, it may also feel a read more

I'm not sure if you seen anime or read the manga of the first series of GENSHIKEN but I personally love the first series more. Why, simple because the characters in the first series is more interesting with more humor. The second GENSHIKEN series didn't really got me interested I hated how it killed off my favorite characters from the first series Saki Kasukabe and her boyfriend Makoto Kousaka I always wanted to see more how his & her relationship more after graduation as everyone knows he IS a hardcore otaku even tho he got the looks.
This second series focus mostly on a boy who read more

By this point, one knows what to expect from a _Genshiken_ and whether one likes it: the clubroom will be stuffed full of figurines and posters from real anime which the viewer can enjoy trying to identify; Ohno will be cosplaying all the time and try to get others to cosplay; Sasahara will be mild and helpful; Kousaka will be pretty and not do anything; Ogiue will draw yaoi manga while looking like a paint brush; Madarame will be cadaverously thin and live in his head (but be much more subdued and less of a delightful eristic); Sue will be very blond and very blue-eyed read more

The fictional lives of two series' characters are presented in these two hilarious anime series. Well, more than just that they're also involved with the manga industry in terms of creation fictional works related to manga.

The characters has little experience but are fascinated by the concept of making manga. As such, they just to pour in various ideas from their heads and create manga that people can enjoy. Mangirl is much of a short anime while Genshiken Nidaime has more of the character relationship development. However, they both have humor if you're looking for some comedy.

Both focus on a group of mature, out of high school, (almost all) female otakus/nerds that have trouble sharing their interest with the outside world and form a close knit group with crazy antics in a slow paced slice of life tone.

The theme of Genshiken Nidaime and Outbreak Company are peculiarly similar despite their contrasting settings. (one in the modern world while the other takes place in a fantasy realm). That theme involves the otaku culture where character embraces the hobby of watching anime, reading manga/light novels, and playing video games.

The main male protagonist from both series are a big fanatic of anime and manga. They have vast knowledge and often involves dialogues into their conversations.

Both series has enormously amount of comedy, drama, and a little bit of romance.  
reportRecommended by Stark700
In both series, there's the theme of otaku lifestyle that is expanded beyond just a simple parody. Rather, it's part of a central theme of the show.

Both series also has many funny moments of cosplay, dialogues, and character interactions. There's also some 'romance' in between that are often poked fun at in terms of their execution. Both series also follows more of a slice of life format that is realistic and at times takes serious approach to them. Additionally, both series focuses on cultures with a taste of fun.

Bakuman and Genshiken Nidaime both involves a group of friends/characters who are prefers indoor activities but more importantly into the manga/anime culture. The main characters are knowledgeable about the manga field and in Bakuman, they even pursue a career in it.

Both series has a lighthearted tone and also has a slice of life feeling to them. There's also references to other popular anime/manga series. There's some romance as well (more so in Bakuman) that creates drama among the characters. Both series also contains hilarious dialogues with a fun sense of humor.
