That would be extremely hard to pull off. Equalling a KEY MILF is one of those things that seems reserved for the likes Belldandy and no one else. But beating Minase Akiko? That seems impossible. Even Sanae from Clannad couldn't do that. Nagisa as MILF might come close, but still...Akiko?


Also that does bring up who would Mugi be the mother of?

The show and manga are called "K-On" for the Light Music Club. Logically, as the girls get older, they won't be in a Light Music Club forever. But Afterschool Tea Time? They can be that longer. Even if tey broke up as a band, formed their own bands apart from each other, or did other things later in life....they will always be HTT. Just like the Beatles. They were only together as a whole for less than ten years, with John and Paul being together as a band for slightly over ten years. But even to this day...they are the Beatles. That is what people remember them for most.

The same would be true for Mio, Yui, Ritsu, Mugi, and Azusa. If they ever did hit the Budokan, or become as famous as they are in the manner they are on our side of things (he audiance watching an anime), than they will always be HTT.

The two mangas seem like they are heading to a duel conclusion of concerts. Yui's group will still be in college, but Azusa will graduate soon from High School and from the talk with Ui and Sawako, it seems Azusa wants to follow the others to JWU.

If the two K-On are to end...that does not mean they cannot have a sequal., based on the same characters, but with their band as the title instead.
I'll put my hopes on that scenario... Its kind of like Yotsuba! ... I just like my periodic dose of it.

Nice to see a peek at Nao's home. I imagine that Nodoka's would be quite the same since I felt they have many similarities, especially the number of their siblings

Honestly I kinda forgot that this is their last festival the festival should be around the same date with the end of 1st season of the anime, right?

And... what's the point of the sleepover then? I don't get it

Nao-chan's so cute without her hairclips!!!

Anyways, Nao was probably trying to show Sue-MEE-ray her score and how it should sound like.

I'm quite surprised that Kakifly decided to show the Okuda family at all, considering that the only other family he had shown is the Hirasawa family (and to a lesser extent, Jun's brother). I'm betting that Nao would be the protagonist should Kakifly do a spinoff. I do have to admit though that *ahem*cloning*ahem* is quite a lazy way to draw most of Nao's family.

So, are we going to have Azusa turn Yui 2.0 and Nao ending up being the lead singer? Should this happen, this will end up like the spectacular 2nd Cultural Festival in the manga (and not the anime)!

Nao's family, yes. Sleep over, yes. Totally shipping SumiNao. XDD

>The point of the sleep over?
To show fans that Okuda-mama has approved Sumire. LOOOOL. (sorry, too much yuri-goggles on. I blame Mugi for inventing them.)

Ui could probably do it if it called for six hands as well.

And she's claim Yui is better.

Heres an interesting article; an interview with Shinohara, long time supervising editor of the K-On! manga. My translation is very bad, but here are the key points:


- Shinohara first discovered Kakifly when on one occasion, he read one of Kakifly's doujinshi at a store specialised in selling doujins. He checked out Kakifly's website, saw potential in his/her works and soon contacted him/her.

- As it was Kakifly's first original work, Shinohara just asked him/her to draw about whatever s/he liked. While discussing what kind of manga to draw, Kakifly mentioned stuff about his/her club activities in high school. When s/he recalled that s/he belonged to the light music club at his/her university, Shinohara thought, "yes, that's it!".

- While they were excited about this, Kakifly did raise the concern of "a manga about light music club may be interesting to people who played music, but wouldn't it be boring to people who have no interest in the subject?" To counter this problem, they made sure to not put in too much specialist music material in the manga. During the discussions Kakifly said, "While the performances were fun, I think I had the most fun while just hanging out, passing time with friends in the club room". This element became the pillar of what direction the manga took. It was mentioned that a lot of the manga content was based on Kakifly's own experiences as a light music club member.

- Shinohara admitted that the slack attitudes of the light music club members in the manga meant that the story hardly develops. Kakifly him/herself was a bit worried about this. So they added Azusa into the group. Initially what they planned to do with Azusa was that she would be the catalyst for the light music club to actually focus on club activities. Though apparently they never followed through with this plan.

- Shinohara never thought K-On! would become a hit, and that the songs in the manga becoming popular was a pipe dream. He credits the anime staff that such a manga about lax everyday life with no dramatic developments would become such a big hit. When the anime first launched, Shinohara recalled someone said "If we were missing anybody here, K-On! would never be where it is today."

- From Shinohara, as a last word to everyone:
"For K-On! to have become such a huge hit, it wouldn't have been possible without each and every one of you fans out there. Although the curtains for the manga fall here, the time that we have spent and shared together through and with this manga is an irreplaceable experience. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for this miraculous experience. Thanks for your support! Thank you very much!"

Somehow, this doesn't sound like a real ending to me. It's more they're just taking a long break to release vol. 5 and 6. Well, that is just my impression from reading the article. Now, all that's left is waiting for s3 anime then after that we may or may not be getting another restart. Anyway thanks again winhip32 for always keeping us informed.

So K-On! *is* where it is at today -- a huge multi-media franchise with oodles of crossover breakthroughs.

So the question from the fanbase is "what the heck is going on?"

My question is, where will it go from here? Is this truly the end, or will we eventually see more, but in a different form?

I guess only time will tell. Either way, it's been one heck of a ride, which was relatively short-lived, compared to other, more longer running manga, but made an enormous impact nonetheless.

Kakifly still needs to tell more of the University side of the Light Music Club (as that was one of the personal experiances mentioned).

But with success, means that the girls could go on to bigger things. As Yui says, "it is HTT forever".

Remember K-On! started serializing in Mangatime Kirara May 2007.

Thanks for the translation - they did nail the 'hanging around' part. It's quite a pity that the manga is ending, I was looking forward to where kakifly was going to take it.

He probably could.. but I'm getting the weird feeling that *he* is the one backing away from what is a lucrative franchise. I've watched this happen several time in the anime/manga industry both by mangaka and the publishing/production decision makers -- and no, I have no pretense of understanding the thought processes involved.
