    Genshiken 2nd Season
    Having watched the original first season and OVA, I can say that from the start, Genshiken 2nd Season aims to please viewers of the original. The cast seems energetic as ever and the events that transpire in this next generation group of otakus just gets even crazier than it's predecessor. If you are watching this and haven't watched the first season of Genshiken, You may just find it as funny ...

    Appearances by original cast, but mostly new characters
    I saw Genshiken 1 (and can't speak to Genshiken 2 or the OVAs). While it was interesting, I think I'm going to enjoy this more. This is the girly version. The first season started with a bunch of guys huddled in a tiny room, playing games and drawing up hentai doujins. Now it's a bunch of girls huddled in a tiny room, assisting the resident mangaka and drawing up yaoi doujins. I admit it ...

    Genshiken Awesomeness
    Growing up with this anime in my mid teenage years ten years ago, I find it very interesting to finally see a sequel to the original "Genshiken" anime's and that they're capable of keeping the same quality and awesomeness from the old ones.

    Thumps up!
    10/10.

    Fujoshi's Dream Anime
    I absolutely adore Genshiken, and this sequel is on par with the original in terms of humor and quality. I cannot speak for the male fans, but being a female fan of the franchise, Nidaime is a treat. There's plenty of BL and fujoshi jokes, anime references, and they kept the x Mada thing running.

    Genshiken 3rd Season, 2nd Generation
    This anime is quite a piece of work. For those who are curious, this anime is the 3rd season of the original series. The first and second season is rather old which you can tell simply from the art. Before going into this series, I advice all new viewers and old viewers to watch/re-watch the first and second season to know/refresh about the background of the series. If you are a hardcore or a ...

    Still awesome into season 3
    I loved Seasons 1 and 2, loved the manga, and I was an absolute Kuji-un nerd for both the real show and the show-within-a-show. Season 3 is fun in so many ways that it's unfair to give it only 4 stars when it's so enjoyable, but it falls short in one key area: there's no protagonist.

    The show's always been ensemble-cast, but Sasahara was clearly the "normal" character we were supposed to live ...

    Big step down towards average (picks up in the end)
    I'm a big fan of the original Genshiken, a realistic and funny anime about an Otaku circle in a Japanese university. Every character seemed fleshed out and relatively realistic, and the introduction of the very not-otaku Kasukabe created a lot of tension, especially between her and uber-otaku Madarame. It was generally slow-paced and reflective on otaku subculture.

    But now most of the ...

    Great Series, Want More!
    Really enjoyed this series, and have to admit to being depressed something so challenging to my shounen otaku sensibilities was over so quickly. If you like slice of life anime with a dose of cringe comedy and floating sexual identity (both figurative and literal!) you can't go wrong with this season of Genshiken.

    Very good but not quite on par with previous seasons
    This new Genshiken is definitevely a good anime. The characters are interesting and the atmosphere is still nailed. But where the original was reflexive and realistic, even thou was funny and exciting, this new series is just "too anime". i mean, too much "out of this world" situation and resolutions.

    Still quite and enjoyable tough. I specially liked the way they touched on the whole sexual ...

    Near and Dear to my Heart~ <3
    The Genshiken series has always been one of my top 5 favorite Anime/Manga series, and I can't express my immense joy when they announced this series after years of nothing. I think the new characters are lively and vibrant which helps this series along wonderfully since it takes place mostly in the same location, a small room. I loved and adored the interaction between the old characters and the ...
