Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This omnibus contains the first three books in the Genshiken series of manga, a comedic slice-of-life series concerning a group of otaku in college.

Although thick, this book holds itself together well enough. Single volumes may be more comfortable to read in some cases, but buying the three volumes included would end up being more expensive in most cases, and this collected edition is built well enough that one can read it without taking any special care to the condition of the book.

If you're up on Japanese otaku culture, and know what otaku means, you'll probably like this manga. It's a slice-of-life style story that details the protagonist's journey into the world of otaku via the Genshiken club as he moves throughout his years in college. The characters are fresh with diverse personalities and the art is excellent. The translation *seems* accurate and the English flows smoothly. Also, there are nice translation notes to help with some of the cultural differences. The binding is solid and it's easy to read this large omnibus.

I can't wait for more. One of my favorite manga series!

Lastly, this manga inspired an anime. There are two seasons published by Anime Works/Media Blasters. They are slow paced, but faithful and endearing.

Great series! Based on the Anime series of the same name which came out before the manga series (at least in the US). If you saw the Anime, the manga follows it closely but it stands on its own. Excellent inside look at Otaku life while in college. Done with good humor. I like the art design in both the manga and in the Anime which are very similar. The art is very realistic and the characters actually look Japanese. it is not in the usual "Big Eyes" anime style. I like it very much. The stories are very realistic too. The characters feel like real people. There are lots of references to other anime and manga which most people will not get as some of it is rather old and obscure. The writers are good about explaining most of the references in the Translation Notes.
I highly recommend both the manga and anime series. Very enjoyable and funny look at what is means to be Otaku in Japan.
