I'm really shocked at this news. From what I heard the current arc has only now wrapped up so I expected things to continue from there. Sad to see it go, but I also have mixed feelings about Second Season.

I wish I could say I have strong feelings one way or another but at least with it ending things will wrap up I loved the original series second season had a really good beginning for me then lost me around volume 5. All things come to an end

And the 8th volume was just recently covered, too. That's some timing Smile

Well, the original Genshiken manga was only nine volumes, so this one has outlived the original, as I think the Japanese publication is up to 11 volumes, so maybe 12 volumes in all.
Which is a good length, I think.

Shame, as I have been enjoying it, just sad we'll not get another anime season.

While my feelings on the Second Season were mixed, Genshiken was one of the manga/anime that got me into anime and it will be a shame to see it end nonetheless.

Please make the harem storyline end long before the story's conclusion, that's the most I would ask for.

He already wrote the "sequel" Spotted Flower (it's not *technically* a sequel, but everybody can tell that it's meant to be a sequel). I'm surprised it took him this long to end Genshiken proper. Curious what he'll do next!
