Honestly, I don't think so. While the Azusa trio were given a few episodes to shine on their own in the anime, I don't think they were really shown much interest in the manga... Jun especially is even more of a background character in the manga than she is in the anime, someone who's only there to give Azusa someone her own age to interact with. And like you said, Kakifly did go out of his way to ensure the original four stays together at the end and continue to go to an all-girls school.... Also, the final pages focused on the graduating four, sans Azunyan. IMO, all signs are pointing to K-On: The College Years. Heck, depending on how long it's going to go on this time I suppose it's only a matter of time before Azusa re-joins them.

I hope they don't make Azusa to minor of a character, that's just be sad. I dont really care for Jun or Ui though, they can do whatever they want. lol

i actually think the manga's story is important here since it's the main source material of the anime. if the manga screws up, well, i just don't know if kyoani would do it w/o kakifly.

Do you think its going to be Movie related, or something different?

Oh I agree, Azusa needs to still be involved somehow. I can't quite see how that's gonna get worked out though...

I didn't think about this, but Nodoka fans are pretty much screwed since she's no longer going to school with any of the main cast... She's basically history.

Thats a shame, I always liked Nodoka and as it seems your probably right when it comes down to her not going to make much of an appearance, if any at all.

Maybe Nodoka will make an appearance every now and then, but not as often as when she was in the high school.
On the other hand, maybe we'll see more Sokabe-senpai. Guess Mio couldn't escape her fanclub

Of what HTT?
I doubt they would continue to use the name HTT since Azusa isnt there.

Hopefully, Ho-kago Tea Time still exists as a band... They're just temporarily separated.

I seem to recall some speculation on the girls college living quarters, whether they'll all end up as roommates who'll be interacting with each other every day, or not.

I'm not as much concerned about Yui's progress as I am about Ui's. We've seen quite a few hints that Yui is perfectly capable of taking care of herself, it's just that Ui's pampering held her back all those years. And though the anime emphasized the Yui-Ui relationship a bit more than the manga did, it's still quite clear that Ui will be the one who will need to adjust the most to her sister not being there. Yui can probably fall back on the other 3 girls for any support she might need.

This is also where I think Azusa and Jun's roles become more important, as they'll have to be there for Ui when she needs moral support.

And it's still not 100% clear that HTT will go on without Azusa. She obviously can't play at school ceremonies and festivals, but nothing is stopping her from performing with them outside of school, especially if they indeed want to put more effort into being a band.

So, either way, I'm quite interested to see in which direction Kakifly is going to take the story.

Well, at the end of the last chapter, as they were saying goodbye to Azusa, someone (Mugi, I think) said "We'll see you in a studio somewhere" or words to that effect. The implications seems to be that (in the manga, at least) they have every intention of keeping HTT going.

i can't imagine HTT without azusa anymore. it makes me sad. DX i hope kakifly would do just a few chapters for their 1st yr in college then come 2nd yr and azusa's back in their loving arms. xD

i agree about ui. hmm.. maybe that's the time azusa and ui can grow even closer. XDDD

ahaha... Her fansclub would grow bigger than before.

One thing that makes me really curious is how Sawa-chan 'survive' in the continuation since Mugi already graduated. I know that there's still Ui... But how 'bout the next year? Lol... *shot*
