Genshiken Second Generation Complete Premium Edition

About the show:
It's a new semester at Shiiou University, and for “The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture," AKA Genshiken, that can only mean one thing—new freshman recruits! Originally founded as a club for otaku to discuss their unabashed love of anime, manga, and video games with one another, the current president of Genshiken, Chika Ogiue, may have bitten off more than she can chew by recruiting a bunch of yaoi-obsessed fujoshis, a.k.a. “rotten girls,” to join their ranks! Meanwhile, the original members of Genshiken who have since graduated find themselves coming to terms with their new lives as productive members of society.

About the extras:
-Hardcover art book (full color, approx. 64 pages) with episode guide, detailed character info, interviews with cast members & production staff, otaku terminology guide, and gorgeous full color illustrations.
