Tagged under Shimoku Kio, Genco, Series.

A tongue-in-cheek introspective on otaku culture, Genshiken tells the story of a group of friends and their club at school, the Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture (abbreviated Genshiken). Represented in the group are just about all of the anime fan archetypes, with social pariahs, hentai and ecchi fans, a model enthusiast, a cosplayer, a gamer, a pervert, and one Saki Kasukabe, an attractive and sophisticated girl who is conspicuous in her normality who views otaku culture with equal measures of bewilderment and disgust and simply cannot why her boyfriend loves anime so much.

Shoujoboy's Genshiken Tv Review

Rated: 9

Presentation of this show was spot on for everything it set out to accomplish. While Comic Party mostly left me out to dry since its main topic was doujinshi, Genshiken managed to hit upon all aspects of otakudom. A lot of the jokes on this show hit so close to home, I found myself not only laughing at the antics on the television, but laughing at myself as I found them to describe me oh so well. Character interaction is what made this show stand out as you get to see all types of otaku live out their lives together, and explain to a non-otaku why it is they are who they are. For those who are just what you would call "average anime fans" this show might not appeal too much.

interesting plot about something so real. otaku everyday lives and social circle. 2 seasons only watched the second. insights of their way of living is revealed rather truthfully. seiyuu ok. artworks above average, could be better.

Otaku = you, then you must see! Downside: if you're unfamiliar w/ any aspect of fandom the DVD's don't really explain, but overall the show does a great job at poking fun of the very fandom it's modeled after without stepping on any toes of said fandom.
