Genshiken it is a very unusual manga (and then also anime) depicting the life of a club of university students who like manga, anime, cosplay, 3D figures, models, doujinshi and hentai games/parodies.

I found it more real than real life.

Very very cute and calm history, but full of all those situations that may occurr in real life, and sure even to us who like anime/manga.

So imagine my very surprise when during my navigations I found one image of character Kanako Ohno the cosplay queen of the manga circle in an XP-Tan costume.  o_o



Sure very strange and interesting that a character of a Manga it is cosplaying a TAN.  ;012

@ CaptBrenden:

Well, fall from behind in the wrong place, it seems that you missed a bit the topic  and why I posted it in "OS-tan fan-fics, Comics and fan-stuff".

It is the tribute of an artist to XP-Tan.

Instead than designing one XP-TAN with his style of drawing, he preferred to use one of his fictional characters and he draws her (Anako) dressed as XP-TAN.

This is why I posted it in "fan-stuff".

Just because it is a tribute to any TAN that was made by a "fan", even if he is a professional.


@ Laevatein:

It seems to me the style of the master artist, then... Yes, it should be original.

But I must check for precise reference from the author.


@ All:

It doesn't seems to me that this pin-up is from the Manga. At least here in Italy publishing of it is not yet concluded.


@ zjhentohlauedy:

Thank yopu for your testimony about the Anime.

If you have complete manga, please check about TAN cosplay of Anako Ohno. As I said the publishing it is still in course here.
But I think it is just a pin-up drawn to publicize the Manga or the Anime, or even better, as I suspect.
Because I think it is a tribute to all TANs made by the "Sensei" Kio Shimoku.

desu

Already read the manga, watched the anime. The story was simple, but really funny. Yes, Madarame depicts very true characteristics of an otaku :D.
