Genshiken II ends

Genshiken II

Goodbye Genshiken, for now.

So Genshiken II ends off with Sasayan’s job hunt arc. I’m a bit disappointed we won’t be going in to the “training camp” arc, but I guess that and the true ending will be left to another 3rd season I hope. Gotta say the animators are damn awesome for inserting some Ogi-chin fanservice in the final episode.

Even in the last episode… fanservice!

Overall, Genshiken II has been a nice adaptation of the manga, and I won’t deny I was really surprised when it seemed that everyone except me hated it for being “bland” at the start but the element of “blandness” is what makes Genshiken II lifelike. Well thankfully, the critics were soon silenced :).

I’ve greatly enjoyed watching this show, even with the infamous over-the-top yaoi episode. Genshiken II also marked a passing of sorts to the younger members of the club, mainly marked by having Ogiue as the main female character focused on, instead of Saki in the first season. I also have to give awesome kudos for introducing Angela and Sue, and they really spiced up the show in the episodes they appeared in :).

Here’s to my hopes of another season of Genshiken!

HAHAHAHAHAHA. Ohno’s American friends are damn freaking awesome.

Gotta say, Yuki Kaida(Angela’s seiyuu) has some really good English mastery. Ayako Kawasumi’s english is pretty okay, although she still stutters a bit at parts. Best is probably Yuka Goto, voicing Sue who only communicates in anime phrases. Well, no english from her, but it was pretty funny enough to hear Yuka Goto utter some trademark lines of otakudom.

Even better, they’re sticking around for one more episode! More laughs abound woo hoo!

Madarame x Sasahara is…

Genshiken II

… extremely disturbing. 20 mins of Genshiken yaoi is overkill. Kugayama got seriously slimmed down a lot though.

Fangirl delusions are scary. They really are. *sinks in to a corner, traumatized*

Exploring Magic in… Otaku Love Lives

Genshiken 2

Ohno is so hawt. Too bad I will probably never find one for the rest of my life :(. I’ll probably end up like Kugayama as well… orz.

Anyways, congratulations Tanaka, you lucky sod. You deserve it I guess.

P.S. Ohno’s left hook is deadly.

Exploring Magic in… Epic Trap.

Genshiken 2

Oh god. Kousaka’s crossplay is legendary. Fucking legendary. Yes, I won’t deny that this has been the moment I have been waiting for to be animated in Genshiken S2. Even in the manga already, this was bloody awesome, and now it being animated… truly the stuff of legends.
