Anime News: Genshiken 2 web radio to start broadcast on October 9th brings us the news that Genshiken 2 web radio will begin streaming on October 9th, coinciding with the TV show‘s terrestrial broadcast. The radio program will be anchored by Hiyama Nobuyuki (Madarame) and Mizuhashi Kaori (Ogiue), who will engage in philosophical discussions that will deepen (or not deepen) their understanding of otaku life. Corners include Mizuhashi’s “Fujoshi no Hanazono”, where she listens to and resolves the concerns of female otaku listeners, and Hiyama’s “Koko ga Hen da yo Ippanjin!”, where otaku turn the tables and point on the bizarre behaviors of “normal people”. The show will be called “Genchoken Otaku na Radio” (Genchoken = Gendai Choukaku Bunka Kenkykuukai, or the society for the study of modern audio culture), and will stream new episodes every Tuesday consistent with the broadcast of the TV show. This is going to be fun… :3 (no more)
