Description: Genshiken Research Society

The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture is a college where otakus (or hobby-obsessed nerds) get together and talk about their hobbies, more specifically anime, manga, and video games. The majority of the members being male college students without girlfriends, a popular topic is hentai, especially doujinshi.

This series is interesting because it's surprisingly realistic, about college students going to doujinshi shops and conventions, and just hanging out. What makes it really interesting is that everything that happens in Genshiken pertains to what happens in an anime the club is watching (Kujibiki Unbalance).
