Berserk and obscure heavy metal might go pretty well together

Now finishing Genshiken 2.

Kuchiki is the creepiest thing ever. I mean, Madarame was hilarious and kinda awesome in an ironic way. Kuchiki is a freak.

I hardly remember who that is. The only characters that matter are Madarame and Kousaka.

The weird guy in the second season, with a nonstandard design. He would be like Madarame if Madarame had even less tact.

Don't you mean Kasukabe instead of Kousaka? Kasukabe was the ostensible main character of the first season, after all. Hell, in spite of being her boyfriend, Kousaka is just worthless background filler like Kugayama, that one fat dude.

I didn't even think of Kasukabe but yeah, that's pretty much right.

The main reason why I'll never say Genshiken is anything close to being above average is that it's so down-to-earth, yet has nothing to compensate for it. Very few of the characters have any scenes focusing on them whatsoever or anything bearing any semblance to characterization. It has one or two interesting characters and everybody else is background filler without any importance. It's so insubstantial, but lacks anything to supplement it.

AMERICANS IN ANIME: Angela is just eww. Her facial characteristics barely register as human. Her pronunciation of English is pretty decent, but her cadence is off and she has a thick accent. Her characterization is completely laced with xenophobia. She has several shots that focus on her bouncing, deformed breasts. She is a total slut. She is fucking gross. Sue is pretty cute, though; she also has a unique facial structure, but it looks less like a monkey and more like a creepy loli. All of her lines are quotes or references and she has no value on personal property, but she's seems to be slightly less of a virulent stereotype than Angela. She's also apparently been promoted the role of recurring character for the revival of the manga, so if that gets an anime adaptation, we'll see more of her.

EDIT: "This page is awesome. Real hardcore."

Angela is disgusting, but I think that I love Sue. Her creepy face is so cute.

EDIT: Genshiken 2 is done. It's funny how I watched half of Genshiken, let it hang around for a year and a half, finished it and proceeded to do the exact same thing with Genshiken 2. Anyway, Genshiken 2 is slightly better than the previous season, but only because it has less problems instead of more qualities. It's less iffy on characterization, it's less iffy on interesting plot points, etc. In general, it's not really good yet, but it's certainly not bad. It's just another entry in a list of anime I've watched consecutively that have never entered "good" territory.

Ratings for recently complete anime:

Puella Magi Madoka Magica - 6
MD Geist - 4
MD Geist: Death Force - 2
Angel Densetsu - 6
Happiness! - 2
Happiness! OVA - 6
Genshiken 2 - 6

Add the Umineko anime to the list and we have a decent list of entries that have not entered 7+ territory. I need better animu.

I could only wish that real American weeaboos are more Sue and less Angela.

Sue is so awesome; she is probably the second best character in Genshiken behind Madarame. It's a shame that she's only in two episodes of Genshiken 2, but at least she's now a "major" character in the manga. It just a shame that everything she does is followed up by Ohno giving her lessons over what isn't socially acceptable in Japan via horrible, broken Engrish.

I think it's worth nothing that Sue is voiced by Yuko Goto, aka Kate from Sketchbook. It's a shame that she doesn't have Yuko's traditional weird lilt, because that worked very well for Kate.

Doesn't mean I'm going to change my mind about it being incredibly ugly.
