Hello Friends!

Today's community anime recommendation is Genshiken.
Be sure to follow the Must Watch Animes collection for more recs! ^_^


Manga written by: Shimoku Kio
Anime directed by: Takashi Ikehata
Number of episodes: 12
Summary (from Wikipedia):
Genshiken follows the lives of a group of college students drawn together by their shared hobbies, and the trials and adventures associated with being otaku. The story begins with the introduction of Kanji Sasahara, a shy, confidence-lacking freshman who on club day at university, decides to join a club he would actually enjoy, Genshiken. Over his four years at Shiiou University, Sasahara comes to accept himself for who he is and loses the inhibitions and guilt he once felt and associated with otaku culture, becoming an enthusiastic club member, and for a time, a capable club president. As the story of Genshiken progresses, focus is also placed on Saki Kasukabe, a determined non-otaku who initially struggles to drag her boyfriend out of the club, and Chika Ogiue, a self-professed otaku-hater who feels a deep-seated shame and self-loathing toward her own interests and hobbies.
I've heard this is a great story about friendship. Would you give Genshiken a shot?

@NerukaWong Wait which girl?
this reminds me of some other anime but cant remember the title T.T
And that's why I would be afraid to watch it lol. I worry about the feels lol
I just read what this is about and this just domed up my youth and college lol and now I feel more comfortable talking about being a otaku. This anime might change people I have to watch it to find out if they went through similar scenarios I did
