This is now the "BEST EPISODE EVER" thread.


4 Name: Anonymous 2004-11-03 14:48 ID:Heaven [Del]

They should have used "awesome" instead of just "great" when Madarame (what an awesome name, btw) referred to the last episode of Kuji... fuck, what was it called? I can't remember the name of the show nor bring myself to care about it too much.

The whole anime-within-anime gives the possibility for a lot of nice storytelling tricks & treats, like the melting of the image of Kohsaka's bald head (which was just a frameless panel in the manga) into the flashback in Kujik... Kujibi...

The art somehow seemed a bit off at times, especially the facial expressions. But all in all it was a pretty good episode. Wouldn't say "BEST EVER" yet, though.

Does anyone have an idea of how much of the manga is going to be covered by the series, at least this one season?

5 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2004-11-03 15:29 ID:7jSs5g9A [Del]

Kujibiki Unbalance (Kujibiki Un-BAAAAA-lance! Wow, is that opening theme ever a great parody of generic opening themes.)

There were a whole lot of great adaptations from the manga in this episode. Kohsaka's bald head was one, and I also really liked the "You don't have a girlfriend!" scene. Kuga-P's head sticking up from the bottom of the frame in one scene also made me crack up for some reason.

> Wouldn't say "BEST EVER" yet

See, nothing's stopping you from saying BEST EVER about the NEXT ONE, too. You should never miss a chance to say BEST EVER.

Oh yeah, and in connection with Episode 2: What do you like better, the Genshiken manga or anime?

Personally, I think the manga shows a lot more life.
Also, there's more detail to conversation and story, a bigger range of the dynamics of normal mode -> sd mode and somesuch things, but those are all things that usually apply to manga when compared to their anime counterparts.

Come to think of it, the only anime that I liked better than the manga is Azumanga Daioh...

Then again, I am a huge sequential art nerd. I wonder if the common japanese otaku has any interest in foreign comics at all? Not that there would be a need to turn your attention and money away from Japan if you live there, so I wonder...

8 Name: Sling!myL1/SLing 2004-11-03 16:39 ID:Re+rQhJQ [Del]

There are some X-men/US comics shops in Japan but they are rare - besides, the comics are in English.

Hellboy seems somewhat popular, judging from references to it.

On the production side, it's pretty obvious from FLCL that some people at Gainax like Jamie Hewlett's work. Also, South Park. And reading Ghost in the Shell makes me think Enki Bilal was an influence on Masamune Shirow (witness especially the Russian diplomat woman). Möbius has done cooperative work with japanese artists, like _Icaro_.

11 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2004-11-03 17:28 ID:/ap14xgw [Del]

Also, the Genshiken manga has more detail, but the anime makes up for it in atmosphere, I think.

12 Name: Anonymous 2004-11-03 17:43 ID:Heaven [Del]


Hellboy & South Park seem to be popular because they have been accompanied with major movies that came into theatres. As for the other stuff, it seems only natural that professional artists would have a wider ranger of artistic references than your average otaku or doujinshi contributor.

Come to think of it, I just thought about how cool it would be for really underground stuff of all different sort of countries to reach the other countries somehow. I have seen some very weird stuff in one asian themed issue of STRAPAZIN, for instance. But that's probably best for some other thread.

13 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2004-11-03 18:11 ID:/ap14xgw [Del]

All the references I've seen to Hellboy predate the movie, though. And it shows up in pure fan work, too, like here:

And yes, seconded on the underground stuff. There are far too many excellent artists who go unnoticed.

14 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2004-11-03 18:12 ID:/ap14xgw [Del] interesting data point would be to know if Hellboy has been translated into Japanese or not, and what other comics might have been translated.

Found the issue of STRAPAZIN I was talking about:

Maybe it would be a good idea to start a new thread with the names of some great japanese underground artists, their names in kanji, links to their websites, publishers, etc.?

The manga is better for geek references and character moments. The anime is fun, but too toned down sometimes, like the scene where Madarake explains erogames to Saki. The jokes have probably also lost some laugh value from having been read already.

One of the translations I really enjoyed. Too bad they didn't overtake jinmen's "What the hell, you brought a girl along!? She's gonna cramp your style, man!".

And there's a thing that begins to annoy me: the height of the subtitles. Somehow I am annoyed by them reaching so much into the actual screen and not staying at the very bottom where they belong.

19 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2004-11-13 03:24 ID:Z9o+Z/Tw [Del]

Ah yes, I really liked the deviation from the manga storyline in this episode.

I noticed the translators missed a few jokes that were in the manga translation, but nothing major.

20 Name: Anonymous 2004-11-13 08:43 ID:Heaven [Del]

Which jokes were missed? If you mean your one favorite line of Sasahara in the crowd at ComiFes, there's some interesting posts regarding this in the Genshiken thread @ Animesuki:

21 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2004-11-13 13:11 ID:Z9o+Z/Tw [Del]

Just a few at the start. The manga translation has Sasahara saying that Kohsaka "stands out like a sore thumb" on the train, while the anime translation just says he looks excited. Also, when they arrive and Madarame says that "he wouldn't go that far", Kugayama says that Kasukabe would smack him for that were she there, while in the manga he just says that she'd make fun of the whole convention. I haven't checked if the japanese lines are the same in both, though, but at least the second one seems like they just missed the joke.

But as I said, those are minor things.

"I sense a storm coming" a reference to what?

23 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2004-11-13 15:37 ID:To5SRcrw [Del]

It's a pretty common cliché, so I doubt it's a reference to anything in particular.

I had that thought a few times while watching the 3rd episode. I guess some things are too obscure even for the subbers themselves.

Could it be seen as a good thing or a bad thing that the writers/artists for both the manga and anime go to such depths in terms of clichés and references to somewhat obscure bits n pieces in known anime/manga series?

Also, why the hell has rated it a "comedy".. its got more brains than that.

It's a good thing since it gives the otakudom expressed by Genshiken & co authenticity and also adds a dimension of meaning to the whole thing which doesn't have to be neccessarily understood to follow the basic storyline.

Although I'd still like to know what "Kuga-P"/"Buu-chan"/"Moh-chan" refers to.

27 Name: asciic!gy8a4NxnD2 2004-11-13 17:24 ID:T8e3UFFg [Del]

kuga- is part of his name, and -pi might be from 'piggu' (cf. P-chan from Ranma 1/2) or at least seems to have similar connotations.

Jinmen's notes explained the others, and the short version is still available:

It's those damn high subtitles again. Really annoying in the scene between Ohno and Saki in Ohno's flat. Might be me being neurotic about things being in my way, but I still cannot get over it.

Anyway, Ohno is displayed as a very sweet character with a nice voice to go with, just like I figured she would be. Which gives me a chance to compliment the choice of all the other voice actors in the series, as well. All fantastic.

I am also digging the sparsely used music. Really nice & subtle, fitting the mood. Apropos mood, it was a good episode, but again I am thinking with all the rushing of the story of the manga, the mood lacks a bit, which is a pity, as I enjoyed that element a lot about the manga. But perhaps that's just natural when you converse manga to anime.

33 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2004-11-19 00:36 ID:19JnWKqw [Del]

Maybe it's just my history with 4chan, but the "Bridget and I-no" line just makes me crack up every time. Also, seconded on the voice actors, they're awesome.

37 Name: Anonymous 2004-11-19 07:26 ID:Heaven [Del]

There is an awful lot of references to other companies' products in Genshiken. Most are masked by just changing one letter or changing the name but staying in the same area of meaning, etc. This seems to be a common practice in both manga and anime, likely because it isn't common to bash or criticize someone else in the general public on the one side and companies aren't sue-happy for alleged copyright infringement because of mere mentioning on the other side.

38 Name: Anonymous 2004-11-19 12:37 ID:MVOfSHvA [Del]

Mainly I was talking about how they use a bunch of actual shots from the game. Like >>37 said, in most anime and such, names are changed slightly, and many are in Genshiken. But Guilty Gear uses it's own name, cosplay of a character from it, and a bunch of screens from the actual game (including in the opening.)

39 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2004-11-19 13:21 ID:19JnWKqw [Del]

They've gotten permission to use a number of characters and such for references. Not all of them, some references are still munged, but that's the real Haruka from Kiminozo in episode one, for instance. The credits list the characters and copyright holders.

I cringe at the thought of someone trying to translate the Tenchi Muyo/this end up/handle carefully reference for a dub. In fact, would the permissions they did get for the anime create a difficult situation for licensing, like with the multisource Super Robot Wars games?

I was hoping it'd get past the manga translations, but they spent a whole episode on this chapter. Good thing too, I suppose, because we got a lot of Saki action.

And the adaptation of that one 4-koma at the end was awesome too.

It's implied that he has hidden cameras in the club room. So he may have witnessed Saki and Kosaka doing something, as well as Ohno changing into her cosplay outfit.

It's the nature of sequential artwork (particularly animation) that not every frame will be a masterpiece... although I agree, it has been quite rough in places.

59 Name: Anonymous 2004-11-25 08:54 ID:Heaven [Del]

Manga (or comics in general) are also sequential artwork. Of course, the sequences produced in animation always require some sort of mass production, but that's no excuse to not do a quality check and somehow I doubt that that particular process was carried out correctly in some episodes, esp. the 5th (haven't watched much further but I have heard it doesn't get better later on).

60 Name: Anonymous 2004-11-25 17:54 ID:Heaven [Del]

Face it guys, no one gives a shit about creating the illusion of human movement or even using a ruler for basic chara art (witness Madatan sitting down in ep 05) on tv. Just be happy that they're still willing to employ talented va's.
Well, that's what I want to say, but since today is the day of giving and then a day or two later raping the shit out with small pox, I will give modern anime companies my apology juice.
The Genshiken anime is still a brillant adapation anyway. For everything they fuck up, there's still something awesome like Saki's "ooooooooooooo" mini-scream.

Yeah. If you have the manga raws, the colour title pages from Chapter 31 show various scenes in the club room on TV screens (including Ohno changing with the curtains shut), but maybe that's just artistic licence.

One thing:
the voiceover guy says Saki never played a game again. But the outro shows something different.
Bad translation, bad scripting or comedic lie?

I was surprised at Sasahara, for all his sister bashing, he actually stood for his sister against Saki. And his sentence was very mature, "Please do not hit others for things I have brought on by myself" or some such.

Ep 7 (just out): Kuchiki-san makes my eyes bleed. I mean, most of the lesser characters are badly drawn, but he's not even badly drawn in a decent way like Kugayama. He looks like he crashed in from Family Guy or something.

80 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2004-12-09 09:40 ID:Heaven [Del]

> But up to now, all the endings have been following the story sequence.

I wouldn't give such formal considerations too much credit. The series hasn't been very consisent with that. For instance, episodes 4 & 5 didn't have any opening scenes before the opening sequence & the theme.

I am thinking that the voice-over guy is just used to create some sort of more epic feel to certain story elements, and since that is always done in an (at least partial) ironic way, I wouldn't rely too much on it as some sort of reliable source.

I think that for a "real life" anime the art doesn't have to be impressive. It's even better as it shifts the emphasis on the story rather than the pretty pictures. The parts where the art has to be real good should be the Kujibiki Unbalance segments, IMO.
Actually, I didn't think the art was bad in ep6. And earlier? The only ep that comes in mind is ep5 [IIRC] where I thought Masarame (sp?) was drawn sloppily, but he wasn't even one of the characters talking. he was a side character in that scene.
Real life isn't always pretty so I wouldn't be surprised if this was intentional, to not try to "beautify" the anime.

But it shouldn't be a sub-par, inconsistent, anamotical disaster like it has been for some episodes now, either. Hands being smaller than faces, mouth position wandering within the face without reason, perspectives wrong... &c

As some you might be already aware, Animesuki has received a notice from Mediafactory, Inc. It is a Japanese company which holds copyright to some of the series we've been subbing (Genshiken and Rahxephon). They requested Animesuki to remove the links to the series mentioned.
While we haven't received such a letter so far, it's clear that the company doesn't want their work distributed. So far fansubbers have been operating on a kind of unwritten agreement with the Japanese companies: sub the series, but only until it's licensed. However, this seems to be no longer the case, at least with Mediafactory. Thus we're removing our releases of Genshiken and Rahxephon OVA from BitTorrent and XDCC bots and ask you to stop distribution as well.

If there are any fansubbers who want to take it on them to continue subbing the series, either with hardsubs or softsubs but certainly without any credits to them as some sort of official fansub group, Share and the English clusters might be the way to go. Does anyone know of anybody being interested in this?

Ep7: this time I noticed the "real bad art". ^^;
When the prez arrives in the room - Madarame has a jacket and in the next scene he is wearing a shirt. Also the perspective of the table/room/characters is terrible. Madarame seems to be the one getting the most bad art abuse.
While in other places the art was okay, especially Saki. Lots more effort goes into Saki generally.
Poor Madarame...

back on top you go for 08
animation wasn't great, but it had soul unlike the past few episodes
i really like the attention paid (/additions) to madarame's dialogue in this episode

111 Name: Sling!myL1/SLing 04/12/17(Fri)16:27 ID:DS4PZJSo [Del]

>unlike the past few episodes

ah come on - all the eps have soul, IMO.

112 Name: Random Anime Otaku 04/12/17(Fri)19:55 ID:Heaven [Del]

i was not referring to the overall soul (i would never insult yokotosama) of previous episodes, simply that the animation was obiviously farted out by a curry robot that was fed kimchee.

113 Name: Random Anime Otaku 04/12/17(Fri)22:16 ID:Heaven [Del]

Seeing the preview at the end of episode 10, do you think Ogiue will make her first real appearance in the anime in that episode? It's basically covering the same episode in the manga.

If not then, hopefully episode 12 then!!!!

> Otakus have issues.




Made me laugh and smile a lot. Madarame's "hahaha" dance near the end was the creme on the cake of that episode. Surprisingly good episode for such little plot. Maybe I was pacified by the implied message that Madarame has the hots for Kasukabe - major plot development but not played out, so this episode was more of an overture to the romance (or misery) still to come (plz plz plz season 2!).

124 Name: Random Anime Otaku 05/01/01(Sat)22:30 ID:Heaven [Del]

Also: Madarame is awesome because he is buying his ero doujin with the Society's budget.

This ep reminded me of when I look at cosplay photos, and within them see one that's obviously a gal, with really tanned skin and major make up and nails, but dressed as Puchiko or something. Makes me laugh (^-^)

Lots of nice, good working jokes, a little fanservice, the art was at a good level (only one instance put me off, Madarame's huge head @ 19:51) and the plot and character development was nicely embedded into the episode's storyline. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! Now I am going to watch Episode 11. Here's a thread for pictures of Episode 10, btw:

Oh My Goddess TV, Genshiken, Hinotori, and Phantom Acquired by Media Blasters (2005-02-20 10:57:59)
At their Katsucon panel today, Media Blasters announced that they hold the rights to the Oh! My Goddess TV series, Genshiken, Hinotori, and a 3-part OVA called Phantom. John Sirabella said that he believed that they also has the rights for Kujibiki Unbalance (the show watched by the Genshiken characters), but has to double check. A full panel report will follow later, which will also include their live action acquisitions.

JJ did the first volume plus 2 or 3 chapters of the second, but it was licensed so they stopped. You'll have to look on irc or a P2P net.

162 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-15 20:15 ID:Jvngfjxh


ive seen the mangas, they didnt look too bad. Lots of boob jokes, so it works out.

163 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-16 06:22 ID:1jPBpqo8

about the genshiken manga's being licensed..
I'm a loyal fan. I DO buy anime and manga of series I like. Even ones where I've the entire episodes off of fansubs...
But the rate the manga volumes are coming out is ridiculous! I've purchased the first 2 volumes and have been told that the rest are being released within 3 month time frames of one another!

This is the sort of shit that stopped me from buying all the noir and mahou senshi riui(sp? louie in jap) dvds when they got released. THEY WERE RELEASED 2/3 AFTER THEY WERE LICENSED!!!

164 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-16 07:05 ID:Heaven

165 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-16 19:55 ID:Heaven


Also get equipped with English. I have no idea of what you're talking about.

166 Name: Random Anime Otaku 2005-10-18 00:38 ID:1jPBpqo8

>> 165 sry, was a little sleepy when I wrote that. Let me rephrase:

I support anime. I do buy anime and manga when it comes out in north america.
I am disappointed that it takes such a long time for some licensed anime to be released.
For instance, new volumes of the Genshiken manga are being released 3 months apart from one another.

These delays are what stopped me from purchasing noir and mahou senshi riui since they took nearly 2~3 years to be released after they got licensed.

167 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-10-18 12:06 ID:Heaven


You know that they're published in Japan at a rate of one every half year, or even more seldom, right? And that it's still ongoing?

Genshiken in english is okay, felt weird watching it, they pretty much made an excellent series.. like at that convention episode, or the one where that guy gets caught looking at the porn

173 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2006-06-25 02:55 ID:bFO56Ux1

Question about the R1 release, is the "Premium DVD Collection" set any different from buying the vol 1+box, 2 and 3 separately?

174 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2006-07-19 05:12 ID:bFO56Ux1
Kujian trailer. What happened to the character designs?
The site for Genshiken itself. ZOMG ED image from last episode! Could they be hinting a second season after all?

175 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2006-07-19 07:52 ID:orIstB32

My Hypothesis:
It's a full Kujin-an Series this fall.

Whenever the Genshiken final manga volume comes out, they will announce the 2nd series.

176 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2006-07-19 13:09 ID:FQT1c54w

If it's a Kuji-un series they're gonna be showing this fall, I think it's okay. The story is interesting enough, at least from the pieces that I can make out from the Genshiken manga and 3 episode anime. Plus, wouldn't it be great to finally know what the genshiken characters are going nuts about? Since there's no Kuji-un manga (or anyone planning to make one) that alone for me justifies a series....

...But it shouldn't be at the expense of a 2nd Genshiken season!! For the love of GOD!!! How long do we have to wait for Ogi-chin to make her anime appearance! (Cameo in last ep. ending NOT COUNTED)

oh, and >>173 ! I don't see any difference between the separate and Premium DVD's. Except, of course, a box with great Shimoku art to cover the horrendous Media Blasters DVD covers.

177 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2006-07-19 15:14 ID:bFO56Ux1

The kujian series needs no hypothesis, it has already been confirmed. What I wonder is if they're not hinting at a second Genshiken season after all with that image of ol' paintbrush-head.

178 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2006-07-19 20:14 ID:0sc/z/6D
