* HeyItsThatVoice: Madarame is [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Viral]] in Otaku Mode. Also voices [[NamesTheSame Madarame]] in Bleach as well.
** And Kasukabe is [[Manga/InuYasha Kagome]].
** Madarame's VA was Adult Link in Zelda: OOT. The funniest part is that Ogiue's VA played Navi.
** Kousaka is [[Manga/PitaTen Takashi "Ten-chan" Ayanokouji]] (and its appearance is quite similar!).
** [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Domon Kasshu]] builds model kits in the same club with [[Anime/GaoGaiGar Guy Shishio]], doujinshi fanatic and Gundam fan.

Added DiffLines:

* PlayingAgainstType: You would expect Creator/AkiraIshida and[=/=]or Creator/JunFukuyama to voice a bishonen in this series... but it happens that both got casted unexpectedly for [[TheFriendNobodyLikes Kuchiki]] in the original anime and ''Nidaime'', respectively.


* TechnologyMarchesOn: In one chapter, Madarame looks up a PC catalog and marvels at the 200 GB sizes of American hard-drives. The chapter was released in 2002, so that sort of size was high end at the time. Currently, 200 GB hard-drives pale in comparison to the now more standard 1 TB models.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The series is a snapshot of the Japanese ''otaku'' subculture as it was at the time it was first published / aired. The references are contemporary, and it notably deals with the ''{{Moe}}'' boom and (to an extent) the "mainstreaming" of otakudom around the middle of the TurnOfTheMillennium. The gap between the old guard and the new generation is [[http://ogiuemaniax.wordpress.com/2011/06/24/the-appearing-and-disappearing-wave-of-generational-change-in-genshiken-ii-volume-1genshiken-volume-10/ increasingly evident]] in ''Nidaime'', where the idea of "otaku" has gone from something of an internalized, somewhat shameful identity to a (relatively) unstigmatized descriptor of someone who enjoys his or her hobbies with a shameless, fiery passion.

* NeverTrustATitle: ''Genshiken: Second Season'' is actually the ''third'' televised season, after ''Genshiken 2''. The Japanese title actually literally translates as "Second ''Generation''", which is more apt (dealing as it does with the Main/GenerationGap between the old- and new guard of Main/{{Otaku}}).
