In Kodansha’s Monthly Afternoon‘s March issue, they are announcing that an anime adaptation of Shimoku Kio’s Genshiken: Second Season sequel manga has been green-lit. The manga continues the adventures of the otaku college club. Other information regarding the announcement has not been revealed yet, but more information will be available when the magazine goes on sale in February.
Here is a brief synopsis of the first season of the Genshiken anime:
Sasahara Kanji is a college freshman who decides to join a student society to share his hidden thoughts on manga, anime and gaming.
When he first visited Genshiken, short for “Gendai Shikaku Bunka Kenkyuu Kai” (Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture), his groundless pride was destroyed by the plotting of Madarame, a sophomore student in Genshiken, but he still couldn’t admit that he is an otaku.
However, as he participates in society activities such as visiting dojin (private publishing) shops and anime festivals, and hangs out with other society members Kosaka (a hardcore otaku despite his extreme eccentricities and good looks), Kosaka’s girlfriend Kasuga Saki (who isn’t really an otaku), Ohno (a cosplayer) and the others, he opens his mind and resolves that he will make his way into the otaku world. With their help, Sasahara slowly adjusts to otaku life in Genshiken.
