    4 more months 'til Ogiue

    As far as the series goes, only those with a serious interest in otaku culture need apply. The discussions are far more hardcore (not in the pornographic sense...usually) than what you might be used to in Oreimo or Lucky Star. It isn't until the later half of the ¿ manga series that more contemporary ideals of otaku-ness start sprouting up (so movement away from fight games and gundam, movement toward moe & that stuff), and even then, brace thyself for uke-seme yaoi discussions. But! For those who can dig it, Genshiken is a fantastic bit of college (NOT HIGH SCHOOL) otaku and non-otaku life. The characters and world are loveable and really change over time; the plot (at least in omnibus 1) never takes itself too seriously and knows how to mock itself and its subject; and the references will constantly give you the urge to check things up online. As far as this omnibus goes... The good: a literal compilation of the already-published -- all that Kujibiki Unbalance jazz is here (downside: the font is terribly tiny) The bad: a literal compilation -- instead of compiling the translation notes into one section (as, say, at the end of the book), they are right after each six chapter volume, which makes them annoying to flip to. And it'd be nice if more was footnoted (as these chapters take place in, oh, 2002 & 2003). The wonderful: see the art style change over three volumes! Buy it!
