15th volume's OAD to have July TV anime's staff & cast, led by Nozomi Yamamoto, Yukana

The sixth volume of Shimoku Kio's Genshiken: Second Season manga will ship in Japan on December 20, and it will have a special edition that bundles an original anime DVD. The announcement was made in the manga's fifth volume which arrived on Friday.

The anime DVD will share the same cast and staff as the Genshiken: Second Season television anime series that will premiere on July 6:

Tsutomu Mizushima (Girls und Panzer, Squid Girl, xxxHOLiC, Genshiken OAV, episode director on first Genshiken) is serving as both director and sound director at Production I.G for the new anime. Junichirō Taniguchi (Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san, Natsuyuki Rendezvous, Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku) is the new character designer.

Shimoku Kio's sequel manga Genshiken: Second Season continues the adventures of the otaku college club "The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture." Kodansha Comics published the second volume of this manga in North America in March. Del Rey released the first Genshiken manga series as well as the Kujibiki Unbalance spinoff in North America. Media Blasters licensed the first two Genshiken television anime series, the Genshiken videos, and the Kujibiki Unbalance anime.
