Yajima?! Got thin!?

And that rack, did you see that rack? That not mere E or F, that's Omega.

I gradually becoming convinced that SF is not an alternate timeline at all. Of course, it could still be a very long con, but I'm getting close to laying down bets...

So you think Saki just got an Ogiue makeover? Or the characters have slightly different appearances. With these new chapters though it seems more plausible than before that it could be the same storyline.

Well, in the original manga Saki officially joined Genshiken after the first president "blackmailed" her. So she is a full-fledged member of the club, not just an honorary member.

 

What's interesting is that the nature of this blackmail was never fully revealed. The suggestion is that she was doing "hanky-panky" in the club room, but that may have been a false flag. 

 

I have a feeling it may come up sometime in the future. It's about time for the mysterious president to do a cameo.

Wow I don't think two pages could make me so joyed, AMAZING two pages! That feeling when it sinks in and you realize how much has happened in this timeline. Hato's gone all the way and also become a famous mangaka. Especially with her unique background and drawing talents, she probably has a substantial following. Yaji's become good enough to sell doujins at comiket too, that's awesome.

 

edit: Missed ch 12, she is clearly a known mangaka.

I know the others considered her a honorary member, but did Saki herself ever consider herself a part of the club? Been forever since I've read part 1. Other than that: spot on.

First I was like "meh, a full month just for an extra chapter" but then Yajimachi appeared <3

More or less, yes.

we dont have a single name for now... its just Mangaka trolling with us...

Ok, that was out of the blue for Spotted Flower and suggests a lot of potential backstory to cover in Genshiken.

The future looks even gooder!

2 pages? Damn. Also, Yajima really changed huh. Sexy Hato is sexy.

wtf yajima!

Damn, Yajima leveled up.

Yajima?

HATO IS FREAKING HOT. I WOULD TOTALLY GO THE NTR ROUTE WITH HIM #nohomo.

The entire Genshiken cast are the main characters. And, no, Madarame hasn't "become gay" as of yet; he's still trying to get over his crush on Saki in that timeline (as she's rejected him). Hato (the TS in chapter 12 of SF), on the other hand, is attempting to take advantage of the situation and has turned up the heat in his pursuit of romance with Madarame. With that said: it's a pretty good read if you enjoy the themes. You should check it out, anyway.

Madrame is turning gay though, or rather, he's very confused right now. Doesn't help that his relationship with Hato is easily the most developed relationship in the entire series. What I think is gonna happen is that as he spends more time with the actual girls in his "harem," he will eventually come out of that confusion. HOWEVER, if the author is gonna go that route, then he better develop the hell out of his relationships with one of the girls because none of them can hold a candle to Hato right now.

Well thank you for that. I guess I don't need to know the other story now. But wait so does the MC in that story become gay? that part I didn't understand. I have read some chapters of it but forgot to finish it. Or does he still have his harem?

Man, the mangaka is really teasing us now. Is it really an alternate or not? He's being really coy. We won't know for certain until the Nidaime timeline catches up to Spotted Flower. (Alternate world or not, SF seems to be a few years into the future). 

Disdanny, apologies on behalf of everyone for ignoring people like you who might not know the backstory, so let me explain:

 

The mangaka Kio Shimoku is more famous for another manga called Genshiken (The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture), which basically chronicles the lives of a tight-knit group of otaku friends in a manga / anime club, including their relationships friendly and romantic.

 

The characters in Spotted Flower are basically alternate versions of characters in Genshiken. The MC is based on Madarame Harunobu, a onetime club leader of Genshiken and all-around loser. His wife is based on Kasukabe Saki, the alpha female of the club when she was there who also happens to be the only non-otaku member. She's there because her awesomecool BF actually IS an otaku and it's the only way she can hang out with him constantly. In the Genshiken manga, Madarame had a crush on Saki but never got anywhere because she already had a BF. In Spotted Flower, he actually managed to somehow make it work and they got married. All the other characters who've shown up are based on other Genshiken characters.

 

The person the MC meets in chapter 12 is based on a crossdressing man in Genshiken by the name of Hato who developed feelings for Genshiken's Madarame over time (yes, he went gay). It appears that the Spotted Flower version has gone all the way and is now a bona fide transgender. That's why "he" is definitely not a mistake, although probably rather mean.

this is a sequel of genshiken?

 

More or less, yes.

WTF!!!!!!!!!! I am so lost

he's a perv after all

Nah he isn't. He can't even give his wife a cunnilingus or a few fingering to save their marriage

"i think YOUR old underclassman just wanted to take the opportunity to meet u"

 

based on this sentences it seems like she's not all that familiar with him, which is odd since Saki is supposed to be in the same club after all, and they already met lots of times

It was a minor edit to the original line to keep the gender from being mentioned until the punchline. Plus Hato has met with Saki only a few times, while he's pretty good friends with Madarame.
