Episode Summary

EDIT
Leisure Time Expenditures on Fetishism Considered as an Economic Result
AIRED:
Genshiken takes a visit to the beach with Sasahara's sister Keiko and Saki-chan. Keiko is obsessed with Kohsaka but Saki-chan is a viscous gatekeeper. The shy Ohno is clinging on to Saki-chan and will not let go. She's got a bathing suit on but has a shirt over to the top. It is useless to bring otaku to the beach. The militant Madarame and the rest would not even step foot out in the sun. They sat under the parasol discussing anime while Madarame took a look at his preview book for the ComiFes(Comic Festival).moreless

  • First major misfire for the show. This one is mostly fan-service.

    7.2
    So far this series has been good about avoiding any obvious fan-service -- the gratuitous display of anime girls in the shower or upskirts of school girls. In this episode, however, the show jumps onto the fanservice express by providing us with a very extraneous trip to the beach. Along for the ride is Sasahara's sister, which means conveniently means we get to see 3 girls running around on the beach in bikinis.



    While Ohno doesn't actually take off her shirt due to her modesty, the whole thing is a pretty pathetic excuse to have a lot of close ups on the breasts, butts and crotches of the show's female characters.



    Towards the end of the episode, there is a fairly touching exchange between Sasahara's sister and Saki regarding what it is like to date an "otaku". But on the whole, this was the first episode which was glaringly below the level set by the other episodes in the series.moreless
