Genshiken 2

I recently watched Genshiken 2, part 1, and found it to be quite boring. But since it was praised a lot I gave Genshiken 1 a try and somehow liked it.

Now I've returned to give Genshiken 2 another chance but am confused at this character (Ogiue?). She wasn't in Genshiken 1 at all and then suddenly it is like they've known her a long time

Also it seems like that tall thin guy (Kuchiki?) who decided to not join the club suddenly is in it too.

Anyone that can explain where they suddenly came from?

(Also, did anyone else feel like the whole first Genshiken was centered around the girl who hated otaku? I expected it to be about the shy guy, who seemed central in Genshiken 2.)
