Genshiken s2 ep4 – you have to ask yourself…

…That even if you were Otaku, would you not jump on Ono after all these time she spent in your house taking off her clothes?

perhaps what happened in this episode is the the reality for Otaku, but even I had to step back and think about how far fetched it is.

I’ve gotten tired of the OP even though I still get some chuckles. The charm of the fake OP for the first season is that it was played only once, and then the regular OP, but yeah, the OP really isn’t supposed to do much after the 1st episode for most shows, anyway. A really funny OP becomes nothing after being played for the third time.

We’re getting some development of the side characters and for manga fans, this is a nice treat as we get to see how Ono and Tanaka finally get together.  Also we get to learn a little more about Ono’s cosplay preference and other.

But yeah, I guess Tanaka is…yasashi? He actually turns on the TV when Ono’s changing so he can’t hear her changing.

Sheesh, when does being nice to women ever worked in real life???????

Also, female Otaku often desires good looking guys and would stay away from dating a male Otaku. Just ask these women, they’ll tell ya.

What’s going on between Ono and Tanaka is rather easy to tell for others, and I think in some sense they know it, but they simply can’t do much before.

In real life, however, just because two people work together on one project don’t mean they’ll get together.

But Kujiki’s role certainly lifted up to the highest degree of funnies. The sequence where he shamelessly asks if Tanaka and Ono are doing it, and then gets knocked out afterwards is just anime comedic gold.

I think this episode is Genshiken finding back it Otaku humor roots, all thanks to the extremely shameless and awkward Kujiki.

BTW,  guys, unless you’re really good-looking, attractive, or the like, women never takes the charge. That’s just a fact of life.

One thought on “Genshiken s2 ep4 – you have to ask yourself…”

  1. This episode was all well and good, but it really should have happened back in the first season. By this point in the manga, they had been dating for ages, without Saki’s intervention (in fact, they kept her in the dark so she wouldn’t meddle). Now there’s less time for Sasa x Ogi :(
