[spoiler]The tables are turned on Ogiue: the guys start talking about eroges (hentai games) and it leads to a conversation about her and eventually what kind of character she would be in an eroge. And unlike Ogiue's yaoi fantasy about the Genshiken guys where the real-life models don't (so far) know about the existence of the story, this time the subject is around to overhear the fiction as it's being formulated. Remember, curiosity killed the cat...
Ohno is slowly pushing Ogiue to admit to also being a yaoi-loving otaku. I'm beginning to believe that she's enjoying getting a rise out of Ogiue. What a scary face Kanako!
You know that this is Ohno's tough-love, and like everyone else want's Ogiue to open up about her otaku nature. Ogiue and Ohno would be great friends if Chika would just admit to herself and everyone else that she is also an otaku.
Ogiue's reactions to being in the sea of otaku and embarrassed expressions are so adorable. Especially when she lapses into using her tohoku accent. The ending scene with Ogiue blushing (even the tops of her ears were red!), stammering and switching accents was sooooooo cute.[/spoiler]
Looks like we're in for some drama next episode...

Three members graduate and leave Genshiken so it's kind of a melancholy episode. The series is definitely shifting it's focus now.
Don't worry, there's still some hilarious comedy.
I died laughing when Kasukabe off-handedly suggested to Ohno about accepting the Chairman position and making Genshiken into a cosplay research club. Ohno's reaction and that of Kasukabe and Ogiue were awesome.
