Calling All Scruffy Nerd-Herders!
It is Sasahara's first day of college, and a fateful choice awaits him. Which college clubs will he choose to join? But Sasahara is no ordinary young man; a dark secret lurks within his soul. For one thing, he knows what "cosplay" is, and he'd like to know more. He knows how to unlock all the secret characters in "Guilty Gear X", and he'd like to know more. He knows what the plot twist is in episode twenty-five of "Kujibiki Unbalance" because he's read the manga, and he'd like to know more. He's heard of Doujinshi, and he... NEEDS to know more. Enter Genshiken, the barely legitimized Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture, home to all subspecies of Otaku!
Motivated by nothing more than the search for a cute boy, Sachi lands herself in a nest of the most hardcore of Otaku.
Will her weakness for a pretty face win out over the utter repulsion brought on by habits of her newfound beau? Will the torrent of anime drive her to...cosplay?
