Synopsis: Written by Kio Shimoku, the manga version of Genshiken is nine volumes long. It covers the lives of a college club of Otaku, but does it in a way that makes them seem real and interesting instead of the usual stereotypes.

One of the reasons I love this series so much is the remarkable number of similarities between the Genshiken club, and the club I helped found at Guilford College, the Yachting Club. Granted, we didn't really have a Saki (who hates geeks and is only i...more

There’s even more obstacles that come between Saki and Kousaka. Not to mention, the growing rivalry between the club and Saki. Or more like the growing resentment Saki has toward Genshiken.

In this volume, we see more of the long awaited plot. The series takes a more focused look at Saki and her relationships with Genshiken members. Although, she seems to piss off the members even more than the day before. She pisses them off almost to the point of no return… Or does she? Even though her constant...more

"There is no way I could ever stop playing porn games." Kousaka. He is one weird guy, I mean he has had girlfriend already? Why with the erogame (porn game)? :D Part with erogame in this volume is funny and enlightening. I have never seen erogame, for sure, but I have had heard voice from erogame, considering my friends are mostly guys here, so I often hear about it, and the sound is yes, ero!

And when Ohno-san is asked, "Ero game or gay game?" Ahahahaha XD

The more I read Genshiken, the more I...more

The concept got going in volume 2, but Genshiken takes a step bacwards in the first half of volume 3, where the characters spend a day on the beach. Love triangles and hormone-infested drama takes the tone too much into the relationship farce direction.

The storytelling gets back to more substantial grounds later on and finally reaches a rather dramatic endpoint.

Another fun installment of the series. I do empathize with the main characters' response to going to the beach - I generally tend to do the same thing. Then again - I live in Oregon, so generally at the beach it's too cold to swim. Also, if there are sea lions in the water, there are also sharks.
