Awesome manga, funny, well drawn, with realistic characters... and otaku, otaku, otaku, yay! biggrin

I actually prefer the 2nd part (as they call it, I see the series as whole) because in the first part the only character I loved was Kousaka. Now there is Hato <3 Sue and Risa are hilarious, I love how Madarame character developed (like, he toned down a bit), and Kousaka still appears sometimes. I like Yoshiatake and Yajima a lot, more than I ever liked Saki, Ohno or Ogiue. So yeah, I am very happy with all the new characters and development. To each their own smile

genshiken and nidaime is the same

after reading... well a reading marathon of all the chapters out so far (88)...
I can't understand people saying that the first part and the second part was different.
Let me get this clear, I am not a yaoi or BL fan, in fact, I steer clear of yaoi and BL although I read some genderbenders. The fact that made me read the second part of genshiken means that it doesn't made any difference at all. Fujoshi is just a part of a big entity called otaku, since the first part was about male otakus in general, the second focused on fujoshi?? I'd rather view it as genshiken without the nidaime part as a whole with the first. Btw... Sue is my favorite character... Kuchiki is a close second... heck.. I don't know but if Kuchiki graduates, there wont be any great boke here... Yoshitake couldnt get as crazy as Kuchiki. I'd say screw people who give this manga a low score because of gayporn, doujinshi is the same regardless of demographic... and genshiken is the same... regardless of being shodaime or nidaime.

Watanabe's harem

or was it Rararame? (just kidding)

It's like Genshiken, but with girls (fujoshi's) and more romance (but the good kind of romance).

I must say I wasn't pleased that there is a new series. Genshiken is one of my favorite mangas and it had a good ending too. I didn't want to start this series until it finished, but kind of came to it. The prospect of a almost female cast put me down at first (I'm a girl after all), but it surprised me how I like the new characters. I liked even Ogiue and Sue, which I disliked in the first series. Hato is interresting and the two other girls are nice too, I like more the fat one (don't know names).

What's great is that the old characters are playing a quite big roles in it. Especially Madarame. Genshiken 2 has much more romance than the first. I usually don't like romance in this kinds of manga, but it was nice. I think the manga is going to center even more on Madarame and his harem. I actually hope for that. There are still some very funny scenes, I almost died at the scene "so I'm uke". Some scenes were just too embarassing, but that won't kill me.

This is the reason I don't read ongoing series. I can't wait for another chapter now.

I have some expectations from this series, I hope Madarame will still have so much apperances, and that Saki and Madarame won't die out. I'm seriously shipping Hato and the fat new girl, so hope for them. although my yaoi hearth is for something more... yaoi. smile But I still don't want something like that to happen. Waaah, embarassing scenes, can't take them. I actually hope this one will be at least as long as the first series.

I'm not sure how should I rate this. The first was still better, but it actually deserve a 10 too, well at least 9,5. I think I'm going to wait for it to finish and rate it then. If my hopes come true, it will certainly be a 10.

Just a pointless sequel

Genshiken 1 is good and told a complete story with characters that made sense.
This one has characters which make no sense whatsoever and are just weird and quirky to be just that. No one is believable, almost no story progression is had and i get the impression that this sequel was just commissioned to print money and get a new anime made that is based on a brand that was internationally successful in the past.
I just see blind greed on Afternoons and the authors side and no intention to make a good manga.
I understand that writing is just a way to make money in the end but the final product should actually be worthwhile in the end and not just stand in the shadow of a prequel or even taint it.
But hey at least the art is still good, for what that is worth. His Spotted Flower is the true sequel without a doubt as it has something new to say and it only needs more frequent releases to improve a bit and get a story going.

I just doing marathoning all Genshiken manga, from season 1 & 2. And u know what, Genshiken 2 really touch my heart. Especially Madarame. I love how the writer made Madarame still fit in Genshiken 2, despite all new characters (ofc Ohno too). And believe me, it made my cry and sympathy with his love life. Especially ch 80. Great job! I hope that Shimoku will continue writing another amusing story with other characters! Even I'm very welcome if Madarame strikes again! biggrin

I think the 2nd Generation is giving its a good run. I'm not all for the BL (personal opinion), but I am -enjoying the storyline and interaction. Plus there original cast we love is still there. I don't see why there would be complaints about this? But I am waiting on Ch. 81 on pins and needles.

Genshiken hasn't changed at all.

Before we had male otakus and talks about ero-games and other male oriented media, now we have fujoushis (and one fudanshi) and talks about BL.
The style of humor is the same, there's enough realism about otakus, there is a mix of romance that wasn't absent in the first one and the new characters are fun and different while the old members are still present, growing up as characters and tying some lose ends.

For non-homophobic fans of the first series this is a must to read.

Huge disappointment

The first Genshiken was amazing. It was all about being an otaku and doing otaku things with your friends. This one is completely different, which is sad.

Genshiken 2 is about reading, writing, and talking about BL. In fact i would say this is at the very least shounen ai. Every chapter focuses on the cross dresssing character Hato who is obviously gay and loves Madarame. It's sad that Shimoku decided to stray from what made Genshiken great. As of chapter 79 there are very few similarities between the Genshiken 1 and 2.

And for the worse i'm afraid.
Genshiken was so unique, so interesting and appealing that it grew on me after countless attempts to read it. But i think nobody that deny that there is something that is just good in there, a true honest work. It wasn't perfect, there were a couple of characters that didn't cut it for me, but it was special nevertheless.
And now i look towards the 2nd generation and wonder what the hell is going on.
Ogiue is still on and some characters make a few cameos here and there. You can also see that Ogiue has matured and developed nicely, such must be the burden of becoming the new president. And yet why does this work fails to appeal to me?
Because simply put there is no proper development, just talking about BL and crossdressing and such. It just doesn't have that feeling.
Sue is the only saving grace at the moment.
Maybe i'll give it another go, in a very distant future.

its not that fun anymore
the only interesting girl in the genshiken universe is not in it
and the genshiken group is all girls...xpt a retard closset homo and a crossdressing boy who acts very much like a homosexual
so now all we got is BL humor
and a big breasted american with a handfetish

there is no real goal for the group
the goals are just excuses for them to get together to have some form of sexual joke

i guess the first 9volumes had alot of sexual jokes too...but atleast there was story that was not just there for the purpose of having some sexjoke

10 chapters in and im starting to get bored
i give it a 5... coz i like the new loli...i like the crossdresser and i like madarame
