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.

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.

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.

but i cant really give any good point to this series except the art.. the plot is way too boring already after the second chapter, the main chara (is there even one i wonder) does absolutely nothing remarkable throughout the 7 volumes released until now, all the other characters are plain losers , and the situation keeps getting worser by the flowing of the chapters (the only sane girl in the manga gets slowly contaminated by everyone else's stupidity), and the humour is very particular.. bah im not saying this series is trash (even if that may be easily figured reading my comment :-D) but, having a pretty static plot, its a hard one to fully appreciate (BUT then again, thats "slice of life" for you ,folks:-D)

very interesting and informative, at least for me cause this whole Japanese "manga/anime world" is or rather was ;) really unknown to me.
Additionally the humor and characters is/are hilarious.

I love it!
I read it all in like a week (though I had read the 7 first chapters before) It's really slice of life, it has some really cute moments, some hardcore moments, some sad moments... It has everything! It's not TOO long and it's not too short either, though I'd have like read a little bit more in the end.

Daily life of otaku. This is rather strang story because there a lot of charecters and their role is equal. This resemble Shool rumble in some way. But it is seinen and charecters are ordinary otaku.

I completelly love Genshiken, every character is great and unique and I love how they portray the otaku in each and all.
A must read, a must have and a must known...Genshiken is unique and lovable.
