Summary
Kanji Sasahara has finally accepted that he's a true otaku who belongs in the Genshiken. Meanwhile, Saki Kasukabe still can't stand how much time her boyfriend, video game master Kousaka, wastes with the Genshiken guys. Saki isn't the only one who's upset that the club members do nothing but sit around playing video games. Kitagawa, the vicious vice president of the campus activities organization, is determined to break up the Genshiken. But the Prez has some dirt (and leverage) on Kitagawa. In fact, the Prez seems to have the lowdown on a lot of students--including Saki Kasukabe, who suddenly harbors a fear of hidden cameras!
