Average Rating

Another college semester begins and the returning members of Genshiken attempt to recruit new club members. Three new members join the club, attracted by Ogiue's BL drawings. She welcomes the new members but fears the club will become a "fujoshi" haven for yaoi fans and is getting a bit too far removed from its original purpose. (Source: ANN)

New cast just as entertaining as old cast (which do appear) but more invested emotionally. Easily to relate and empathize with. Heartfelt.


Beautiful. The story went places I never expected it to. Wish there was another season.


Has some highs for sure, but there’s no doubt that the realism and characterisation that made the original so great got lost along the way.


fuck makoto



    "We, who hurt each other so terribly, will sit here licking each other's wounds. We damaged goods will each seek the other out in comfort. If you are to die tomorrow, I'm fine with my life ending then as well. But if you want to live for me for one more day,I'll go on living with you today as well. And thus begins a tale of kindred, bound by their scars. Soaked in red and written in black, a story of blood. One of which I'll never speak. Our very own, precious as it is, story of scars. And I have no intention of reciting it to anyone."
