Episode Summary

EDIT
The Sublimating Effects of the Dissimilation Brought on Through Makeup and Co...
AIRED:
In this episode Tanaka asks Saki and Kousaka if they'd be interested in cosplaying together. Saki, of course, rejects the idea immediately although she briefly entertains the thought of being an elf because it reminds her of Lord of the Rings. Judging from her excited impression, however, I'm quite sure she's referring to the movie version with Orlando Bloom in it and not the animated version. Anyway, in the middle of their conversation, a girl called Ohno Kanako comes in and tells them that she's wants to join the group. The gang is surprised about this especially Saki who can't believe that the girl is an otaku as well. Tanaka, on the other hand, is excited because Kanako reveals that she likes cosplaying and is willing to cosplay at the school festival. Tanaka asks Saki to help him taking Kanako's measurement so he can design a costume for the new girl. Strangely, Saki doesn't seem to mind much.

When they arrive at Kanako's place, however, Saki finds out that Kanako likes bald and older-looking anime characters. Kanako is embarrassed about this but Saki pretends as if it's nothing to be ashamed of. Fast forward to the school festival day, Kanako is seen wearing CloudBerry Jam (of Guilty Gear X series) costume while Tanaka is taking her photograph. Meanwhile, Saki gets a phone call from an ex-boyfriend who wants to catch up with her. Because of this, she meets the guy to tell him that she's not interested in him anymore. When she returns to Genshiken, however, Madarame puts a Neko-mimi headpiece on her head against her wish. So she violently chases him around with a broom and unfortunately, bumps into her ex-boyfriend again. Despite Kousaka's assurance that she looks cute, Saki can't take the embarrassment and ends up going berserk on the gang.moreless
