Genshiken Second Season's Ad Previews Opening Song

Sumire Uesaka sings "Genshi, Joshi wa, Taiyo Datta" & plays Rika in July anime

The Tokyo MX station began airing a commercial for the Genshiken Second Season anime to introduce the new members of the otaku college club "The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture" — also known as Genshiken. The ad features the opening theme song "Genshi, Joshi wa, Taiyo Datta" by voice actress Sumire Uesaka, who is playing the female lead Rika Yoshitake.

The anime will have a mostly new voice cast:

Shimoku Kio's sequel manga Genshiken Second Season continues the adventures of the otaku college club. 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.

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. Michiko Yokote is returning from the previous Genshiken projects to supervise the series scripts, and Junichirō Taniguchi (Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san, Natsuyuki Rendezvous, Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku) is the new character designer.

The anime will premiere on July 6.
