Synopsis

Genshiken, or 'The Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture', is actually a group of otaku, no, actually more accurately a club of college people with interests in modern visual culture in Japan -- dare not mention the word 'anime' -- gathered for the purpose of study of the aforementioned theme.

A comical, a tad cynical, every day view of the life of otaku.

It's kind of made for people who are similar to the characters in the anime or at least for people who get all the references and character types.
Like you said, I think the slice-of-life approach fits perfectly.
Random chan 08 Oct, 2013
@galeana yup, but this one is more slice-of-life. It's not at all action-like, there is no drama or anything... it's just how people get together and do stuff. In that sense, anyone who will enjoy something quite and a just a little bit funny (life-ish funny) will definitely enjoy Genshiken. It's also a classic.

I kind of have to make myself to watch all the episodes. If you want to watch funny and otaku drama kuragehime is a better option (especially thanks to the crazy comedy part).
