Ganshiken! Nice pickup. I also love the fact you got a catalog title that was not USA and Canada only. Hopefully you guys can start to make a habit of that?

They'd need seasons 1 and 2 since this is, confusingly, the third season of Genshiken.

The original Genshiken manga ran for nine volumes, the first seven of which were adapted into two seasons of anime. Then after a couple year hiatus, the author returned with a sequel series, Genshiken Nidaime (which would be better translated as "Second Generation" than "Second Season," but that boat's left the dock) which is now getting adapted even though there are two volumes of the original run that remain unanimated.

In any event, Genshiken Nidaime introduces a mostly new cast of characters, so knowledge of what went before isn't totally necessary.

I saw that too and was a bit surprised, I actually haven't seen it yet but have heard it's actually pretty good.

As far as Genshiken goes I'm really happy CR was able to pick it up. I have the Genshiken box set, it's a really great show, except for the episodes where all they do is get depressed looking for jobs; the comedy, which is most of the show, is excellent though and I'm hoping that's the direction this season goes.

Cool, I watched Genshiken season one years ago, and only a couple episodes of two. But I am wondering, is it really the 2007 second season streaming, or is it the new 2013 Genshiken Nidaime?
I am confused.

It is the 2013 series. I noticed ANN keeps calling it "Genshiken 2nd Season", so I have to wonder if that English name is forced upon us by the publisher (who sometimes seem to choose names based on how good they sound to a Japanese speaker than what they actually mean in English).

For those of use that actually viewed the second season (on DVD in my case), it certainly confuses things.

Genshiken S2 <3333 will watch obviously. Oh and I do recommend Kaiji for those who have not seen it. The OST is bloody awesome.
