The two paths have mostly been "Akira arc" and "Sumire arc".

Not likely. To date, all the extra chapters added to the tankoubon publications have been added to the beginning of each volume, not the end.

This ending felt quite off to me. It's just so... plain and sudden. I wasn't expecting it at this point.

As everyone pointed here, if we have the final HS chapter wrapping up both stories, then it would be acceptable.

On the other hand... It's somewhat weird to think that a series like K-on! actually has an "ending". The closest to that was the ending of the 4th volume. Graduation is always a natural way of saying something ended but there's "more to come". But then the story really continued.

And now, how an "ending" could be done anyway? K-on! is a slice-of-life that didn't really have a tangible plot from the start. It's quite a tricky situation for Kakifly, I must admit. I'm curious to see how he will handle this with the last HS chapter.

Oh well... At least Mugi-chan finally will have her Yakisoba? =P

I don't think we've seen the last of the K-On series.

She'll have to go the head banging route like Sawako, and get that new long hair moving on stage.

Has the manga ended or one more chapter of Azusa will show?

It has ended. The last chapter hasn't been translated yet though.

First of all...while the University chapter didn't say anything, this high school chapter at the end does say "look forward to Kakifly sensei's next work". So I'm happy enough knowing this guy isn't going to disappear forever after K-On!

Spoiler for High School Chapter 13 (end):


And thats the K-On! manga (though who knows if the author will start this again or not). I didn't really expect too much from this apart from the cute girls and "fun things are fun" shenanigans, so I'm not too sad. Interested in seeing what else Kakifly has planned, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Going to stay neutral as almost all series end with "please look forward to my next work" regardless of what actually will happen.

...and so the series ends (once again), though I can't help but feel the endings were a little abrupt compared to the first time around. Nice to see Nao enjoying the culture festival a little too much, and it was great to see the group grow and get this far. I quite enjoyed this series, and hopefully we get to see what Kakifly-sensei's next work is in the not-too-distant future.

Ah.. it really ends T_T but this is a more proper ending IMO.

After reading this chapter, I really feel that Azusa should go separate ways with HTT since she seemed to have a strong emotional tie with Wakaba Girls.

Well, it's not like she doesn't have a strong emotional bond with HTT either eh? Azusa can always have two bands at the same time. But I have to agree with you. Azusa seems to relate and belong much more with Wakaba. Maybe because she's their age or something aside from that.

And, HTT started with 4 and it would end in 4, I guess.

Them's fighting words!

HTT is the One True Band. I see nothing in the new HS chapters that suggests Azusa is anywhere near as attached to the new group as she is to HTT. And how could she be? They've been together six months. She was with HTT for two years. Wakaba Girls hasn't had the many bonding moments that HTT had. The relationships in HTT elevated beyond being just a group of high schoolers playing in a band together. I don't see that in Wakaba Girls at all.

^ Nah, just a personal opinion of mine

I didn't say that her bond with Wakaba is stronger than HTT. I'm fully aware about that.
It's more like that she didn't really care about the new club at first and still yearn for her seniors, but as time goes, she developed a feeling for Wakaba Girls and enjoy her time with them.

With that said, If Azusa still want to return to HTT that badly like the first time, it feels like Ui, Jun, Nao, and Sumire only acted as a "filler" for her 3rd year. They're just there to accompany a lonely Azusa until she graduates.

^ But of course that's not the case for them

The Wakaba Girls are Friends First ... the band is secondary. They were friends before there was a band and there's only a band because the other two didn't want Azusa to pine away.
