As much as I love more Genshiken anime, I have a sad feeling that it will skip WAAAY ahead just to start with the introduction of this new generation of characters and we won't see ANY of those great stories they didn't get to cover in by the end of the 2nd anime but were still in the manga (Sasahara and Ogiue's relationship develop, the revelation of Ogiue's past and why she claims to hate otaku, Madarame and Saki alone in clubroom before their graduation, etc.) and this makes me very sad...

YAY. Just read chapter 83 earlier and was thinking about when there would be a new season and what do I see here? I must be dreaming right. More MOEdarame

If that happens, hopefully we can get some Ova's before the adaptation of Nidaime.

Another news that brings me enormous joy. One of my favorite slice-of-life comedy anime gets continued. Can't get enough s-o-l above highschool level :)

Listen, everybody wants change, don't nobody want to change though
don't nobody want to pray, till they got something to pray for
now everybody's gonna die, but don't everybody live though

This made my month.

I also hope they will continue where they left off with the anime, though. Kind of worries since the rest of the original manga could easily be a single cour alone if I remember correctly. So I hope they won't skip through it fast enough to include Nidaime in a single cour or something like that.

Now just a sequel to Kaiji or Akagi (or an adaption of any other Nobuyuki Fukumoto series) and I can't think of any more titles I really want a sequel to that isn't getting one.

This was exactly what I was thinking. I hope they will continue where they left off before covering Nidaime. There is so much left untold.

Did not watch the original. However, it would not matter too much for slice of life comedy. I will watch the OVA

Its not episodic, so it does matter. The OVA is merely a transmission between S1 and S2(introducing a new character)

The new anime, to be named "Genshiken Nidaime", will air in this Summer Season.

Studio is Production I.G.
Director is Mizushima Tsutomu

More information can be found in the updated initial post of this thread.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.
