Synopsis

The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture, otherwise known as Genshiken, is now under the charge of a more confident Sasahara. Things have changed in between semesters, and the otaku club now has a new otaku-hating member named Ogiue. Sasahara's initial goal of starting a doujin circle and selling those fan-made magazines at the next Comic Festival becomes a reality, but reality is a cruel master... who apparently crossplays. Afterward, the club is abuzz with talk about Tanaka and Ohno's relationship, which takes a hesitant step forward.

Genshiken 2 is probably the best of its series. This season focuses on the characters' developments and creates quite an inspirational, fun and dramatic show. This should REALLY be watched by people, specially lost college students because of its ending. It's really good, that the whole series is now VERY DEFINITELY a MUST WATCH for complete understanding.

The first season was about otaku people and culture. This season also showed a little bit of that, featuring Genshiken's participation in the Comic-fest and the introduction of two non-japanese otaku, but it's mainly about the lives of the Genshiken members. It features relationship developments, dream chasing, job hunting, read more

The first time I saw Genshiken, I was just completely taken in. Now the second season has taken it to the next level. Continuing from the OVA series that takes place after the first season, Genshiken 2 makes another Otaku come back for the fans. This time with some new characters and some interesting background stories, the story of Genshiken has become more in depth with the real world while still having it's Anime based zanies.

The story begins when Sasahara takes his new presidency of the Genshiken club to the next level, by entering the club into a Comi-fest Dojinshi retail. Now he teams read more

Well after watching this last episode of Genshiken 2 i was fairly disappointed with this season. The reason i fell in love with Genshiken was the COMEDY. I was laughing so hard i thought i was gonna die during the 1st season. Dont get me wrong the 2nd season had its moments but it felt that it went from a comedy to a serious drama. The last 5 episodes all together might've made me laugh maybe twice total. I liked the character development and the new characters but towards the end it became two serious, everything revolved around two characters.Felt like they were killing everyone read more

Well to be honest, I was a bit disappointed with this sequel series. I really enjoyed the original Genshiken show and characters. With season 2, they introduced several new characters and largely replaced the majority of the previous cast (with some exceptions). Honestly, this sequel feels more like a 6/10 but that's mostly if I compare it to the first season. Luckily Madarame was one of my favorite characters from the first season, and he is in the second season quite a bit. The second season changes pace from the first, dealing with much more serious topics and ultimately taking away from what made the read more
