>Referencing a fictional character in a fictional manga that is in another fictional manga
This is getting too meta for me.
What? It's just referencing characters from other series.
Why do they need to censor when they're alluding to other works?
Gokujou Seitokai was so strange.
The girl in the middle with the helmet is the student council president of Kujibiki-Unbalance which is the anime that they watch in the original Genshiken. It got it's own real anime, but originally it was an anime inside of an anime/manga.
Japan doesn't have fair use laws, so most references in anime are censored to avoid problems. Sometimes they do it just as a joke though, since usually there isn't that limitation when talking about works of the same publisher.
When will Ufotable be freed from Type-Moon?
They're using the new design that was made for the Kujibiki Unbalance anime, not the one that was featured in Genshiken.
People still remember Manabi Straight?
