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?
Art college: cradle of romance, home of bittersweet moments. Takemoto is struggling to find his direction in life, while his roommates Morita and Mayama are moving confidently - or recklessly - towards their goals. Enter Hagu-chan, the childlike and beautiful prodigy whom everyone admires; and thus the love triangles begin. Together, the trio explore the pain of first love, the trials of romantic conflict, and our loyalty to those annoying people who happen to be our closest friends.
Both are about a buch of friends bound together by their interests (in Honey&Clover they go to the same university while in Genshiken to the same club) and their struggles in life (love, friendship, future). I\'m sure you\'ll find the main characters very alike.

Kujibiki Unbalance is the anime within an anime featured in Genshiken. They are made by the same studio and absolutely a must see if you've seen either series and want more.

The fact that Kujibiki was made up to be featured in Genshiken makes it a must see if you are a fan. If you somehow happened upon Kujibiki first then do yourself and favor and watch Genshiken and Genshiken 2!
