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 think it's great to have manga not about school kids. There seems to be this wierd rule that a main character schould never be over 16. Anyway, the story of an otaku club. Highly recommend.

Edit: Read ending, upgraded from 9 to ten, damm, almost made me cry
