Genshiken Second Generation

It’s a new semester at Shiiou University, and for Genshiken, that means new freshman recruits. Founded as a club for otaku, the current president, Chika Ogiue, may have bitten off more than she can chew by recruiting a bunch of yaoi-obsessed fujoshis!

Available in the United States and Canada.


If Her Flag Breaks

Sota Hatate’s surviving of a tragic accident gave him a special power to see people’s fates in the forms of flags over their heads. Some flags are simple like “friendship,” but others are ominous, such as “death” flags.
