In volume 2, SAki goes spiralling further downwards into the Genshiken, then saves the Genshiken from closure (but still hates them all). We get the most memorable of the comic fests (well, appart from maybe...but that's spoilers...), Saki tries to learn to game, Sasahara's sister turns up and Saki succesfuly chases of any new members for the club!

Anyone who has seen the anime should know what comic fest I'm taking about, and really there's no way I could rate something with such an epic line as lower then 5. All the characters in this manga are so awsome, and the manga has great flow and pace. Love it. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345481704, Paperback)


Kanji Sasahara has finally accepted that he’s a true otaku who belongs in the Genshiken. Meanwhile, Saki Kasukabe still can’t stand how much time her boyfriend, video game master Kousaka, wastes with the Genshiken guys.

Saki isn’t the only one who’s upset that the club members do nothing but sit around playing video games. Kitagawa, the vicious vice president of the campus activities organization, is determined to break up the Genshiken. But the Prez has some dirt (and leverage) on Kitagawa. In fact, the Prez seems to have the lowdown on a lot of students–including Saki Kasukabe, who suddenly harbors a fear of hidden cameras!
