Chika Ogiue is a student at the university and eventually finds her way into joining Genshiken. She is a skilled artist and a fujoshi, often creating many yaoi doujinshis.
Chika was originally quite hostile and unapproachable. She is a self-professed otaku-hater who feels a deep-seated shame and self-loathing toward her own interests and hobbies. This was a result of a past incident in high school where she featured a boy she liked in a yaoi fanfiction manga. However, thanks to the efforts of Kanji Sasahara, she has become a more open and friendly person and fully embraces her hobbies. Due to her skills, she joins Mitsunori Kugayama as Genshiken's other artist. Towards the end of Genshiken, Ogiue starts dating Sasahara.
In Genshiken Nidaime, she becomes the new club president after Ohno steps down.
Appearance and Personality
Ogiue has dark brown to black hair that was originally tied into a high ponytail that resembled a stiff brush. She has since let her hair down, but ties it back up on occasion. She used to wear plain, oversized clothing, but has started to be more stylish as she got into a relationship. However, when busy working on manga, she reverts back to plain clothing, though better fitting this time.
Ogiue was initially hostile and self-loathing towards otaku and herself, to the extent that she would harm herself by jumping out of windows in an attempt to "escape" humiliation. Once her past issues are dealt with, she mellows out and becomes a friendly, normal person and openly embraces being a fujoshi.
