Early this past week I was made aware of Genshiken. By Friday I had joined the group translating it (Jinmen Juushin) as the manga’s new head translator. Between these two events I found myself in the posession of the first three volumes of the manga and the latest volume of Afternoon, in which it is serialized. I also found myself swept away in the throes of passion by Ohno Kanako, who is hands down the hottest and most desireable two-dimensional character ever depicted by the hand of a Japanese. Person.
