Storyline

After reflecting upon last year's low freshman turnout, Chika Ogiue, the new president of Shiiou University's "Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture" (aka Genshiken) seeks out new freshman members to join. At the freshman welcoming hall, while stealing angry glances at Kanako Ohno, the previous club president (who was having fun cosplaying, as usual), puts on a flashy drawing performance. Suddenly two girls, freshmen Rika Yoshitake and Mirei Yajima, respond to her performance by joining the club. It turns out the girls have a reputation as "dirty girls" just like Chika, and the three birds of a feather do indeed flock together.Meanwhile, a clean-cut beauty with chestnut hair appears at the club office asking to join up. But as it turns out, she's actually a cute boy in drag... With new and unique freshmen members onboard, things in Genshiken Second Generation are about to heat up!

Just a pointless sequel
3 January 2015 | by residentgrigoSee all my reviews

This is my mangaupdates review of the original manga but the anime is a direct adaptation so all my words apply too. 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.
