About Genshiken

Sasahara Kanji, a new student at Shiiou Daigaku, was unsure of what clubs to join and stumbled into a club known as the Gendai Shikaku Bunka Kenkyuukai, the fancy name for the school's anime club. The best part about the club? It's full of hardcore otaku (except for one later on). This series follows the growth, adventures, and hardships the Genshiken members face as they progress through three school years.

Genshiken's manga ran in the Japanese magazine Afternoon where it was serialized from June 2002 to June 2006 and was compiled into nine volumes. The series also received two twelve-episode seasons of anime, as well as three OVAs. There are also two spin-off series (Kujibiki ANBARANSU and RAMEN Tenshi PURITI MENMA), both of which have their own respective manga and anime incarnations.

To learn more about Genshiken, head inside the club! (coming soon)

About Fanlistings

To summarize the explanation put forth by TFL/TAFL:

A fanlisting is basically an online list of fans for almost anything. Fans from around the world visit the site, and joining/creating/etc. is free; you just need your name, country, and in most cases, an email address. Most fanlistings are just fanlistings, but some feature more content, while others may even have an entire fansite portion dedicated to the subject.

Frequently Asked Questions

As the title implies, these are questions frequently inquired about Genshiken media. Adopted from Daeva's original site.
Asking me or Daeva for downloads/uploads/rips/etc. of Genshiken will get you nowhere.

  1. Where can I find the Genshiken anime?
    • If you live in the United States, you're in luck--it's licensed by Media Blasters, and if you have the money you can buy the DVDs (like I did XD).

      If you don't have money or live in another country, there are places online where you can watch the series. Google is an invaluable tool for such purposes. Most episodes found will not be available for direct download--you may have to use a BitTorrent Client to grab them.

      If they happen to be in Matroska (.mkv) format, you can play them on Media Player Classic.
  2. Where can I find the Genshiken manga?
    • Your local comic shop--where else? :P

      The manga series is licensed by Kodansha (original publisher) in Japan; Del Rey Manga in Canada, UK, and the United States; Star Comics in Italy; and Kurokawa in France.

      If the series is not licensed in your country, the series is available for online reading. Again, Google is your friend.
  3. Where can I find the complete, scanlated version of Project G / G2?
    • As far as I (and Daeva) know, there are no complete scanlations of either of those works around.
  4. Where do you find / download Project G / G2?
    • Daeva found Project G on eMule while looking around for Genshiken resources. Project G 2 is available via this link on RapidShare (still available as of 06 October '08). If it worked for her, it should work for you.
  5. Where do I find fanfictions or bigger images?
    • May I repeat that Google is great? :3
  6. Where can I find some Genshiken porn / hentai?
    • Daeva found some on E-Hentai and Doujin Moe. Parental discretion is advised, and both sites are NSFW.
