Genshiken Nidaime (Genshiken 2nd Generation)
By: Kio Shimoku
Genre: Comedy; Slice of Life
Serialized in: Monthly Afternoon
This manga is the continuation of the first Genshiken series finished four years ago. Now we can follow again the daily life of this group of otakus as they now have fresh new members to handle. How they'll handle it? I don't know, but I'm pretty excited to read every and single detail.
I'm a big fan of this series. My favorite comic by far. So I hope you guys enjoy this new series as much as I will.
It's a weird one for sure, but its fun.
Why is it back after 4 years? I only just started reading manga that long ago so I've never heard of it.
I don't know exactly why it came back, but the fans really enjoyed the bonus chapter that was release together with the Season 2 Box Set. So, in my opinion Kio liked it too and decided to continue the series with the new characters.
Obviously the bad public acceptance of his last manga (after genshiken finished), Digo Puri, may have been a factor in this decision.
Kio is an exceptional manga creator. I'm sure he's not going to do any crap just for the money factor. He'll probably create a story as good as the first series was. Good characters he has, now let's see what he's going to do with them.
Really? Anyone read this or you guys just don't access the seinen area of the forum this much?

So this is monthly right? Cause I'm ready for more.
Surprised this thread isn't getting hits, come on people, read it, its funny.
I read the first series just a few months ago and i LOVE it so much.
It is scary how much i can relate to the characters lol
Oh, so it is a new series? When i read it in mangastream i thought it was a one shot. It is good news indeed, now i have one more manga to look forward to every month.
Anyone else a fan of this manga?

I just read chapter 58 and i love it so much!
It is very hilarious~! I sense an upcoming rivalry between Hato and Yajima.
Hmm, i wonder where will their relationship goes.
Btw, i ALWAYS forget that Hato is a crossdresser till one of the character mention it. He truly is a trap.
Reading that chapter reminds me of how much i love Genshinken. I really wish there will be a live action adaptation or new anime season or OVA. *q*
Chapter 58 was great, hilarious and wholesome. I loved all the character interaction and self reflection. The drunken behavior was so spot on and easy to relate to. Love this manga.
Chapter 58 was really awesome. The new characters sustained well the story by themselves. I'm really looking forward for the next chapter that will probably focus on Madarame.
What's sad is that people here in MH don't seems to like this series as much as I, and you guys, like...
New chapter is out. (Although it was late) great chapter!! and good lord Madarame is ABSOLUTELY in denial!!! good god, if were in the manga, I'd say he's worse than a tsundere girl. A good beating might also do him some good.
A new group is also translating Genshiken Nidaime.
Although it doesn't have the "cleaning" ability that Mangastream has, they translated it faster.
I think Mangastream will continue with Genshiken, but only the time will tell.
You can find chapter 60 on Mangafox.
I just read chapter 60! (via mangastream)
It's another awesome chapter! Hato is so adorable and beautiful, i like
herhim more and more.
And the most hilarious part is the one where Hato is imagining the 'Hato x Madarame' part. Poor Madarame, looks like he is always the uke. xDDD
I never expect Hato to got bullied because of his fondness of yaoi.
That makes him similar to Ogiue.....
I'm really happy that they are doing a Genshiken Nidaime.
The first one was really really good.
Although, I started it after it was completed, so I was able to read it all at once.
Waiting a month for every chapter is almost a torture.
I think I might let it go for a while and come back to it.
In any case, this is a really good manga (and anime) and I really recommand it to everybody.
I just caught up with this manga and it was great. At first, I thought it was kind of boring because I can't relate to any of the characters otaku talk at all. But then I grew to really love the characters, and when that happens, I don't really care what they do or talk about.
My favorite characters are:
Saki, because she was the "foil" to all the otaku boys and pretty much is the reason I kept reading after thinking the beginning was boring.
Madarame, because he is pretty much the only male character that is particularly interesting to me. I like his little unrequited love with Saki.
Ogiue, because her "otaku problem" was probably the deepest thing in the entire manga.
Ohno, because her being the first real otaku girl of the group made everything more interesting.
And Sue, because she is crazy and hilarious. I did like her better when she talked less though.
This latest chapter(67) was hilarious when Kuchi tried to attack Madarame.
Hm, I personally like both series, if you can separate them, but somehow the charm of the earlier chapters of the first series is missing. How does everyone feel about the new Genshiken and how would you compare it to the old one, if you can split them at all as I said?
