Hilarious. Pregnant wife is either making illogical claims blaming her poor husband or tries to make him have sex with her (Him: well I heard there are that sort of porn... Her: at least call it normal porn, bastard!). But it's very sweet - a young happy family. Extra bonus is characters being from "genshiken" manga (Madarame and Saki). Very nice title, I'll definitely follow it.

This slice of life is pretty nice and funny =)
I don't see why people critize it because it's related to Genshiken.
Ok it's clearly related to it, but from what I see, it's more like a tease in a possible futur for Madarame and Saki than anything else and it's not like we'll know before Genshiken end if it's the real futur.

Haha! I laughed so hard. I hadn't expected it to be as much about sex as it is - I honestly thought it was going to be a cutesy little newlywed manga. But that's okay, because it was definitely funny enough to make up for my expectations!

I have trouble deciding whether this deserves an 8 or a 5.

If I treat it as a standalone manga about the hilarious antics of a pregnant wife and an otaku husband, then I find this to be a fairly enjoyable series. I would be willing to give this a passing 6/10 even, perhaps.

However, if I approach it as an off-shoot future in the Genshiken timeline, then I am confronted with conflicting emotions. One part of me reminds myself that all this silly loveliness is just an attempt at appeasing the fans who were hoping for a Madarame and Kousaka pairing; and that this couldn't actually happen. The other wishes and hopes a deadbeat like Madarame could hook up and impregnate the stylish Kousaka. There is also the possibility that even if the main characters were actually who I pray they are, all this is just an alternate universe and has no forbearing on what is to come in Genshiken.

Every now and then the mangaka likes to tease the readers by making references towards situations and events that only members (and devoted readers) of the Genshiken would know.

This manga is a goddamn cock tease.

Well. Genshiken ended somehow and was acceptable.

This turned to be an alternative universe.

What comes after the last english-scanlated chapter (21.5) was the worst. It went from 10 to 1.
Not because what the characters are. Not for what the characters did themselves (or how or even where). All of that doesn't really matter to me.... But WHEN they did it and for what ONE character did to his family.
It was OUT of character in my opinion. And another slap in the face to the fans (of Genshiken)

And it can be even worse in the future!!!! Nothing can fix this.

Decent but the otaku-ness is just way overboard

I'm sure anyone who's looking at this review will know the basic premise. The story is decent but the main character is just too pathetic. The whole series is about him rejecting his pregnant wife's sexual advances (she's at a 'safe' stage to have sex now) but after reading 11 chapters, the same jokes about him rejecting his wife ran dry and now he just looks fucking pathetic like making excuses left and right.

Aside from that, I guess it's pretty heartwarming but at the same time it their "married life" feels too fake.

dude first it's not kousaka x madarame. what you just said is totally yaoi.

anyway im totally against this development, how can kasukabe saki fall in love with that otaku? holy XXXX ive never thought so highly of Madarame as a male lead character who ends up with the main girls. If i can consider him as a main character, it's only because he is funny.

i can accept if sasahara or kousaka ends up with kasukabe but never madarame
