Really good episode. I love it how Saki convinced Oguie to try cosplaying. I really wanted her to be part of the photo shoot, but I don't really like her Renko... the hair didn't do it for me. Maybe another Kujian character would have been better. Apparently, the guys really wanted a Renko cosplay.

I would have loved to see Saki do the President cosplay again. She definitely had that cool air about her. I was hoping to see all three of them do it... but that's wishing for the impossible.

Well, this ends the OVA... looking forward to next year's series of Genshiken.

I'm with you on the hair thing, mild. Oguie's hard look really...yucky in Renko's costume. Her hair down on the other hand looked pretty nice. :)

Good episode, is this really the end?

Now that you mention it...

Hair down was really nice. She looked good when they were feeling out the different costumes in front of the mirror. Did you notice her hair alternate between straight and frizzy?

Also, it's the end of the OVA. They're already in production for another season in 2007.

Bah...at this rate I'll cave and (over)spend on the Oguie figure to complete the cosplay trio.

(Side note, Genshiken OVA makes 199 completed. 200 will be a race between Kino no Tabi watching and Death Note 37 release)

Cool

I suppose I'll give this the same rating as the TV series.

The humour makes up for the drop in animation quality.

Hopefully season Two will be back to better quality.

anyone know which fansub group has done episode 3?
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

The costumes must have been padded or something.

I guess it's easy for them to pull off that anime look when cosplaying since they are already anime characters lol.

Good episode. Saki's pretty good at convincing people to do things they don't want to.

Really enjoyed this OVA, it was great to see Saki playing a more active role than just complaining about Otaku, but then I always thought she liked them all more than she would admit. And I like the new girl-but the guy is seriously odd.

Anyway, great wrap up for the OVA, and tahts all for me as I've already seen the second series!

Actually I might re-watch it now!

Good episode. I loved convincing Saki, but I guess I just like Saki very much.
Btw did I mention that I completely and utterly love the ending theme? If not - now I do - I totally love it.

Great episode! They kinda change some detail regarding Ohno and Tanaka relationship cause they haven't introduced them going out in anime just yet but otherwise it was really hillarious.
(and just like in manga - nobody even noticed that this time Saki escaped her cosplaying promise without notice :D)

Fun episode, seeing Ogiue getting riled up about cosplaying was cute and amusing. Overall I liked these OVAs, they kept me more interested than the first season. Not sure if I'll watch season 2, but this was decent enough. To break it down for me:

Ep 1 - 6/10
Ep 2 - 7/10
Ep 3 - 6/10
Overall - 6/10

Episode that does not take away his eyes from Ohno and Ogi-chan, giving greater characterization.
It is especially Ohno who shall receive such attention from the narrative, making it stand out as had happened in the first season.
Great job by the narrative that has proved enjoyable, fun and serious on important matters.
Quality of the drawings very good, overall this series of OVA was big-time.
Final rating of 8/10!

I can really see a change in Ono's personality which some people complained about in previous discussions. However, there is such a thing as a developing character. My theory is that being with the group for so long, she gained more confidence and shows another side of her to the people closer to her. Occasionally she will even fall back again to being shy, truly showing how realisticly human these characters are. That is one of the things I really love about Genshiken.
I look forward to Genshiken 2! XD

I'm still midway through the series, but isn't it one of her traits that she's normally quieter but gets excited when the subject is one of her personal interests (cosplay and yaoi, so far)? It just seems to me that, since Ogiue joined Genshiken, there's been much more talk about those topics, so it's natural that she seems more "active" now. The fact that Ogiue's expressed conflicting opinions regarding those just makes Ohno react more extremely.

Saki is a second mastermind after original prez ofc xD
Probably the prez is still there watching them
