123 seems to be up on Mangafox

Spoiler:

- "Behold, the Life of a Man" WHAT A GREAT CHAPTER TITLE Shiny/thrilled
- Oh my fucking god, Kucchi's face:rolf:
- A transitional chapter I guess. Seeing out the current crop and showing things are relatively back to normal and maybe introducing some people next time

123:

-Pretty strange to have a quiet, normal day at the clubroom after that endless trip. A little melancholy, knowing this is probably the last little bit of this version of normal before new people join and new things start up. And Madarame and Kuchiki leave Sad
-Yes @ Kuchiki's face, I made an alarmed squawk out loud and then laughed my head off.
-Hato and Yajima are still awkward with each other. Wonder when we're going to see the fallout from all of that.
-I'm a little frightened that Hato managed to shock Yoshitake, that doesn't seem like it should be physically possible to do  Uh-oh

Spoiler:

- Yoshitaka sister creepin on Hato, new harem incoming!
- DOOOOOOOOOHOHOHOHO YOSHITAKE PLAYING MATCHMAKER
- This underage drinking scene and them lol'ing that it'd be censored or cut in an anime, that's pretty meta
- HATO IS MORE EMBARRASSED THAT SOMEONE SEES HIS PANTIES AS A GIRL THAN SOMEONE SEEING HIS DICK WAT
- Yajima must become an elite manga author before crossdressing cutesy Hato will accept her, ofc
- "Next time, Madarame's Generation takes the stage! A hero's battle is never over."

Ch 124:

-I hope Yoshitake Jr's going to bring something more to the table than creeping on Hato, because she needs to step up her game if she's going to follow in Kuchiki's footsteps.
-"Let twitter condemn us for showing underage drinking" Laughing
-Man, Yoshitake is terrifying, I love her.
-I hope Yajima's idea that being a better artist will make Hato fall for her is another one of these 'they're trying to live through anime tropes and figuring out the ways it doesn't work' things rather than something they're going to play straight, because that's really cheesy.
-Excited to see the old generation again! I hope Saki will show!
-Is Keiko really going to just disappear off stage? Sad Also, where's Sue?

I am slain, I die.
126:

-They. Confessed. In. Anime. Quotes.
-This is one of those moments where this series rises above the enjoyable-pop-culture fray to acquire the luster of a pure, clear artistic vision. This deftly penned love letter to this specific time and place and culture. Maybe my glasses are just all rose-color fogged up from this massive payoff, but Shiny/thrilled
-Maybe moe and love are not so different for you indeed.
-Saki liking her moe = tiny detail that constitutes a disproportionately enormous payoff. What a victory for Madarame. He doesn't even really get it.
-HOW CAN THIS POSSIBLY END IN ONE CHAPTER.
-Sh-shut up, Kugapii's not the last man standing, he's got Rino-san at the c-club... Heart

125 and 126:

-Aww, it's the old gang! I actually started smiling nostalgically out loud..er, on my actual face, whatever the smile equivalent of lol is...
-Madarame's rant and everyone else just kind of Side-eye "Considering how much anime is done in 3d, it's kind of old-fashioned to talk about 2d superiority" Laughing
-I was hoping she'd show up, and then Kousaka drops a "we." SAKI!!! Shiny/thrilled
-Madarame wavers not rofl
-And Saki's completely unfazed
-pregnancy fakeout!
-Yes'm rofl
-Saki takes over!  Man, we need to bring her over to Orange to solve everything there Grin
-I was kind of won over to Sue in the final stages, but why does everyone assume it's a given? I guess he did say he should have slept with her, so maybe everyone's responding to that, but that's not really that much of a clear thing on his part. Lit, you win, bet you wish we'd put proper bets on it now Razz
-They both finally spit it out by quoting anime Laughing
-His detailed explanation of why she's the character he's going for  rofl
-Kasukabe's expression
-my panties rofl rofl rofl
-And then Ogiue has to pass on that she said yes. Oh man, these two are totally my favourite couple now.
-For some reason, the Evangelion reference kind of gave me feels

HOLY SHIT, THAT WAS THE BEST

-Everyone still working to set them up even once they're dating.
-This page of Ohno and Ogiue smiling at each other got me in the feelings somehow

I'm not ready for this series to end Sad  Though, it's become so much Madarame's story that it does feel right to end it here. But I'm going to miss these guys. I'm kind of conflicted, on the one hand, I'm really liking Sue and Madarame as a couple, it's hilarious, and it feels like there's room for them to both grow and start their lives and have stories (that we don't get to see Sad) rather than 'welp, they're coupled up, nothing more happening here' like was kind of the case with the other couples. And the story's become so much about romance that a 'he goes off on his own' ending did/would feel a little bit of a letdown, especially since this is apparently the end of the whole series and not just this plot arc, but OTOH, they're kind of doing a bit too much of a 'pair everyone off' ending, it feels a bit like there's an inability to imagine a happy ending that's not all couples. There's still time for Hato and Yajima to not get together, I guess? Uh-oh

In conclusion: Surprised Shiny/thrilled :/ Lovestruck Happy tears But mostly Shiny/thrilled

I'd say yes, but more mixed than Genshiken I and takes longer to get invested. It contains quite a lot of payoffs and continuations and endings for things from the first one, which I found carried me through even when I wasn't as interested in the new stuff.

Also, if you're talking about anime, Genshiken 1 never properly concluded in anime form.

Enail: Interesting. I did read the first volume of part II and it was fairly entertaining but it didn't feel as "genuine" as part I.

bomaye: I have all of part I in manga form. It's great Grin

It does improve after that first bit, I thought that was the weakest part of II.

Agreed that 2 starts off a bit weak, and isn't as consistently compelling as 1, but it does have some good arcs of its own and some payoffs for the original crew that are totally worth it.

Oh, man, it's the end Sad

127:

-EVERYTHING WITH KUCHIKI rofl
-"Kasukabe-san? But her word is law" Laughing
-KUCHIKI rofl
-Yoshitake going all historical to justify not being president.
-KUCHIKIIIIIIIIIIII rofl rofl rofl
-t-that's it??? Sad

It seemed a bit of an anti-climax after those perfect last chapters, it didn't feel like we really got even a hinted direction for what everyone's going on to or really bring out the emotions, and I'm disappointed Keiko just totally disappeared once the harem got resolved. But damn, I'm going to miss this series.

I think the previous chapter was the ending, this chapter was saying "We're graduating again, so long, maybe we'll do Three someday, but until then, the clubhouse will always be inside our hearts ;_;"
