A continuation of the Genshiken manga has been announced, covering Ogiue’s reign over the club.
“Genshiken Nidaime” will feature most of the old cast, including the now club president Chika Ogiue.
The manga will be serialized in Monthly Afternoon magazine starting November – however, the serialisation is described as being “revived for a limited period,” suggesting it will run for a short period rather than be a general restart.
Earlier in the year the same magazine ran some Genshiken short stories, apparently so well received as to prompt a longer continuation.
The mangaka responsible, Shimoku Kio, appears to be between titles with his last manga having sunk like a stone – restarting Genshiken may be a tempting prospect, so just whether this will be a strictly limited run or something with the potential to relaunch the series remains to be seen.
