Here is a summary from Wiki since Dyne, Aya, or I haven't bothered writing one for BE yet.
Genshiken follows the lives of a group of college students drawn together by their shared hobbies, and the trials and adventures associated with being otaku. The story begins with the introduction of Kanji Sasahara, a shy, confidence-lacking freshman who on club day at university, decides to join a club he would actually enjoy, Genshiken. Over his four years at Shiiou University, Sasahara comes to accept himself for who he is and loses the inhibitions and guilt he once felt and associated with otaku culture, becoming an enthusiastic clubmember, and for a time, a capable club president.
Nice coincidence; saw this thread appear on the main page, with me just having watch the first ten minutes or so of the show on Adult Swim (the name "Death Note" or w/e it was grabbed my attention). Couldn't help but to stay through and watch what goes on in this show, and I must say I'm impressed - and I'm far from an Anime fan as I've never really gotten into it, so that's obviously saying something. And one more thing - didn't the screen actually read "The human whose voice is written in this note shall die", rather than "... disappear"? If not, then maybe I'm just seeing things, but it's nothing surprising given that I'm here, sitting down, all in exhaustion and sleepiness from work.
