The official website for the Genshiken television anime series has announced that Artdink game creator Kazutoshi Iida (Doshin the Giant, Aquanaut's Holiday) will publish "another Genshiken story" under Kodansha's KC Novels imprint on January 23. Shimoku Kio, the creator of the original manga about life in an otaku college club, has drawn the prose novel's cover. Genshiken Hainyū Ranjin no Yabō~Return of the OTAKU~ will be published on January 23 for 940 yen (about US$8.20). Iida's personal blog hints at a game tie-in with the manga. Kodansha also published the original manga, which Del Rey published in English.
