    One thought on “Genshiken: Second Season, Vol. 1

    1. Gabrielle on said:

      This is a good follow up to the manga of the same name. As most of the original casts graduated, the club continues on with new members that are more out of ordinary cliché characters that are usually reserved to geeks. From a (maybe) trans character who was bullied/not accepted to a woman who keeps to herself and to an American who pretends to be weird but in reality wiser than she looks. This follow up got me intrigued for I enjoyed the previous "season". Comedy and heartfelt drama at its bes [...]

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

      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 [...]

      Genshiken Second Season Volume 1 (or just Genshiken Volume 10)? I'm not otaku enough to know why this was released as "second season" -- but I can assume it was to confuse fans into thinking that this was a new series and to buy it even if they didn't have the first season.It's a new season -- but all of the original characters are still there. They just don't necessarily come to club meetings anymore. Except maybe Madarame-kun.The new president, Ogiue has set out to find new members to join the [...]

      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 [...]

      I really wasn't sure where the 'second season' would go after the end of Genshiken but I wasn't disappointed. The series didn't feel as though it was retreading old ground. The now mostly female cast offer a whole new dynamic (though the old guard do still cameo from time to time).The new characters are an interesting bunch, with cross-dressing Hato being the primary focus of this volume. The one thing that did frustrate me was Yajima's attitude toward him (I really can't believe no one called h [...]

      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 [...]

    9. Kris on said:

      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.

    10. Sarah Hayes on said:

      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!

    11. Kevin on said:

      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

    12. Crystal on said:

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