Genshiken has won its own sales booth at the upcoming ComiFes, and so for the first time they will be participating as a seller instead of navigating through the convention crowds. The club, now with a couple of new members and Sasahara as the chairman, combines the talents of its various members and begins working on its debut doujinshi release. With members having various personal matters to take care of and the deadline rapidly approaching, will they be able to complete it in time?
Najimi Osana's goal is to make a fortune in life, but in reality, she hasn't been having much success in her job. Tsuyuri, a doujin artist and a friend of Najimi, takes her to a convention to help her sell her doujin; and after learning that her childhood friend Justice is a very successful doujin artist, Najimi declares that she will make her fortune by creating doujins of her own. However, Najimi has never created anything close to a doujin before, and will struggle through many difficulties. Together with Tsuyuri, Justice, and Sora, they will work together for Najimi’s sake to gain fame and fortune in the doujin market.
Doujin Work and Genshiken 2 both focus on the process of making Doujin, the reasons behind it, and the selling aspects. They also show the "hardships" that doujinshi go through to finish their art, although the anime tend to show more funny situations than hardships.
Doujin is nowhere near as good as Genshiken. But both follows the struggles of making and selling doujinshi at ComiFes.
Both of these series take a look at creating doujinshi instead of merely reading it. If you liked that aspect of Genshiken 2 as well as the comedic side of it, then it is worth checking out Doujin Work.
Kyosuke Kosaka is a normal teenager with average grades and an average home life, but when he finds out that his overachieving younger sister Kirino has been hiding her vast anime and eroge collection from their unassuming parents, his world turns inside out. Now, having promised to help his formerly distant sibling navigate her two distinct lives, Kyosuke finds himself drawn into Kirino's world of magical girl anime and "little sister" fetish games while covering for his sibling to her parents and friends, not to mention trying to provide what guidance he can.
If you want a funnier Otaku's parody, look at this. A 15 years old girl use her older brother to hide her erotic games collection. Very funny...
Both animes are otaku cultured, very enjoyable storylines, anime references (Genshiken 2 has more tho, check ep. 11), great character development. While Genshiken focused on what otakus do after finishing school/ university and step into the big world ahead of them. Ore no Imouto (My little sister Can't Be This Cute) focuses on an otaku that is currently going through school. but has an older brother that she wants him to help her out by making friends with other otakus, while hidding her otaku hobbies from her parents and non-otaku friends.

If you liked Genshiken 1 or 2, you would also like Bakuman because both focus on aspects of manga writing and the methods in which they are created. Both are comedies, featuring manga fans (or otaku) and center around similar comedic themes, while making references to prexisting titles. While Genshiken is more comedy-centric compared to Bakuman's comedy-drama, they both cover the relationships between manga anime-lovers and those outside of the loop.
Both depicts the process and terms used in the manga and anime culture in a good depth and how this type of media industry works In Japan. those also show, in their own manner, how hard and how complex to make an anime or a manga.
This show is centered around Doujinshi (Fan Manga). Kazuki is a senior in high school, who doesn't really know what to do with his future. His friend Taishi drags him into the world of Doujinshi, where he tries to make and sell his Doujinshi to the masses and learn what it really means to be a real Doujinshi artist.
If you liked Genshiken 2 then you may want to give Comic Party a try. Both series place a lot of focus on the creation of doujinshi in time for a comic festival. Both series are also comedies so if you enjoyed that about Genshiken 2, then check out Comic party.
Both Genshiken 2 and Comic Party are centering around the creation of doujin. If you like stories that include trips to cons, mangaka, and the general nerdiness that goes with both then check out these two animes.
In the world of a Japanese otaku, doujinshi – fan made manga – reigns supreme. Kazuki is a would-be famous doujinshi artist who loves nothing more than to create it, but the usual rushed manuscripts and lackluster sales derail him along the way. Together with the spirited Eimi, loud Taichi, bumbling Subaru and the rest of the gang, Kazuki balances his career as an artist with some good old fashioned fun. But the most important question remains: will Kazuki's talents ever get him a spot in the convention’s coveted Kabe Circle?
Both Genshiken 2 and Comic Party Revolution are comedies centered around the creators of doujin, or amateur manga. If you like stories that include trips to cons, mangaka, and the general nerdiness that goes with both then either of these animes will probably entertain.
