There's going to be some mixed emotions about some of the content in this book, because at times it feels so vastly different than the first "season" of Genshiken. This is both a good and a bad thing, depending on how you look at it.

Part of what made the original set of Genshiken manga so much fun was how realistic it felt, giving so many of us a feeling of "we've totally experienced this". To an extent this is still present in this volume, but over all of this there's a veneer of complete and

I didn't know what to expect from this. I mean, the original Genshiken ended so perfectly -- all the characters from the start of the series graduated and went off to start careers, leaving the club in the hands of three capable underclassmen. Obladi-oblada, life goes on. Is a sequel really necessary? Especially one that shifts the dynamics of the club significantly?

Well, maybe not necessary, but it is good.

The new series picks up a few weeks after the original with Ogiue now club president. Sin

Its now a "fujoushi" club... but unlike the previous members, these girls are just not as likable, not yet anyway

I'm going to admit that I'm kind of oddly disappointed by the fact that Kenjiro Hato isn't transgender, though as the series stands thus far, it's entirely possible that the character could be revealed down the road as being TG after all, but in denial.

Still, it's a good continuation of Genshiken, and it's a nice new start. It's also nice to be a series focused on otaku that isn't focused entirely on material for male audiences, though we'll probably have some stuff along those lines in later vo

As I thought, the next generation is totally different from previous generation. Not that I hate it (look at the 5 stars), but the feeling is not just the same, like Madarame has said and that can't be helped since most of its member are now fujoshi girls (forget the facts that Hato is male and Mirei is actually a girl).

I thought, Hato-san would be the gay character here but I think my fangirl mind got the better of me that moment. I even thought he will end up with Madarame-san, oh the way mang

Starts off slow, but once they start to show off the new characters' personalities and interests and have them interact with the old group it really picks up. Bonus: they have not forgotten the big unresolved plotline from the first series. Yeah, you know which one I mean.

Oh no, I've fallen in love with Genshiken all over again. Now I have the urge to make a doujinshi! Too bad I can't draw, kol kol kol. And to the surprise of no one, Hato-kun is my favorite of the new club members. Fundanshi who crossplay for the win!

Not as great as the first nine volumes but I'm so glad that Shimoku restarted Genshiken and I hope it goes for a very long run

I don't like the new cast of characters as much as the old ones, but it was still a good read!
Kate
Unspeakably hilarious.
