but I can honestly say that I'm really please thus far

oh yeah, I don't think this is against the rules, anyone know where I can find some .gifs of the episodes thus far? I'd really like to make an Ogiue icon, but I'm not sure where to look other than Photobucket

quality.
I was totally shocked too. I had completely stopped going to their site to get torrents because I get them elsewhere, but a friend told me they were subbing it and I thought he was lying until I went to go look. The download numbers are huge because of them. This is the first thing they've done in a long time that I don't hate them for.

Spoiler for Big Pics:


I should note that OVAs usually have more a bigger than TV series, so they should look better. Then again, these OVAs were extra's on the Kujibiki Unbalance DVDs iirc, so they might have to have made them with an "extras" budget, which I can imagine is not big.
wow...I had never seen the OVAs. I really kinda want to look for them now, even if the quality is kinda...odd...compared to how nice it looks right now.

Better still, don't. If you wish to post (or discuss) the manga, then please do so in the manga thread, not here. Please do not spoil it for those who are following the anime.

Please keep the anime thread for discussion concerning the anime

Well, I meant more in the form of a PM. Not the anime thread. I was saying to just share the information in general.

Ogi required a VA who could convey a great deal of emotional vulnerability and still bite the opposition when pissed off [something like Fushigiboshi's Altessa ] . Out of the working seiyuu today who "do" such conflicted characters, MK here has done the closest to the type on a regular basis. Saito Chiwa is too much of a tomboy to take the job, Rei Kugimiya's Shana clones are entirely too militant

The story for the first season essentially ended with Saki cosplay and her reluctant acceptance of the geek crew. The second season of genshiken has the perfect setup for humour when sexual fantasy and guilt clash. All this through the eyes and interaction of a highly creative but emotionally repressed girl. The really funny thing is, the whole club's values is one that doesn't judge who comes in [except when Saki puts a hand in ] . Poor Ogi can't decide to be either angry or shy around them because of it- in ep6 she does both at the same time

Probably why Ono like to poke the girl so much, the target becomes cuter when pissed off.

Now, with all the additional material included I'm hoping for an expansion on why Ogi and Keiko don't particularly like each other.

Well ok,... That is, if you don't mind. It's quite straightforward actually.

At most, they can probably make an entire episode just for this. But then again, one can always assume that they just don't go well together. It's kind of funny if you place Sasahara right at the middle, as if he were the hapless manga hero stuck between the heroine and his sister.

hmm, it seems like in order to wrap the series up in the next 6 episodes, they are cutting out all the stuff with Sasahara's sister.
I guess it's logical choice.
She's one of my favorite character, so I'm a little sad that with her airtime getting axed though.

Spoiler:


Animation and art quality was noticably down from previous episodes, and with some re-touched recaps, this episode seems to be the "break time" for the staff. But still a very good episode.
Oh yeah, last but not least.... The OP changed a bit. Nanoha-ish parodies added.

I have alot of complaints with this episode

first of all, www.spacer-s.com does not exist!

and why go back to the older kujian drawing style? was that a re-cap from the first season, because I don't remember that happening in any of the episodes

they always hint that madamare has the hots for saki. i wonder what will happen at the end.
madamare always gets the short-end, he deserves more1

They do hint at that a lot, I'm pretty sure there's an entire manga chapter dedicated to that too, but I don't think anything comes of it because he realizes that she just makes him feel uncomfortable, or something along those lines, then again I'm not sure what happens in the final vol either

Uncomfortable in a good way though. The whole Madarame-has-a-crush-on-Saki subplot is a significant part of his character development.

But for now, anything said more on this will be getting into manga spoiler territory.

The self references were a bit too much with the OVA stuff, I agree.

Show seems to be stuck in self reference mode inbetween the next big comedic angle.

It was nice to see some flashbacks from the first season, especially with the second season style. The Kujian scene had me all <3 --- i've missed it's original style so much.

I'm happy they left in Madarame's "Saki's wearing stockings". Not only does that carry on his hidden love for her, it's just so typical of his character. & yes she does look rather hot in stockings.

Spoiler for Episode 08 preview:
