Description
College freshman and ACG lover Kanji Sasahara settled down his extracurricular activity in Genshiken (The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture) in order to become a true and thorough otaku. Meanwhile, Saki Kasukabe, the girlfriend of another freshman Genshiken member (also a bishounen) Makoto Kohsaka, was dragged into Genshiken's otaku-ish activities reluctantly, yet her resentful attitude towards otakus is changing without her notice.

I really loved Genshiken. Sure, not everybody will enjoy this but I love the humor and the portrayal of different otakus. It's a life built on the views of otakus and how they'll deal with reality. It's a lax, laid back manga that just wanders around, just like how we might be feeling. I absolutely adored it.

Plus, I can relate to the characters ~

I read this because I couldn't wait for the anime to finish in time and then it left out much. Well the story is nothing to write home about, the ending is somewhat predictable, relationships and so on.. But it is a lot of fun reading.

Simply awesome. Great coming to age series. Though sometimes I felt they where too hardcore, but it's all good. Little bits of romance where nice too.

If you aren't so called "otaku" (geek), don't even bother. The artwork is pretty good, but the story is something I could care less about.

Ever feel secretly ashamed because you read/love manga and anime, maybe you hide it from friends, even good ones? Stop what you're doing and read this series. Technically, yes it could be better, the art and story, but you can tell it comes from a love and knowledge of being and living for lack of a better word, otaku.
