A rumor came to our attention regarding the original Manga of the popular series K-ON!. According to Twitter, the Manga of K-ON! will come to an end in the next issue. Regarding the reliability of the rumor? Very unlikely. At first, the Manga was serialized in Houbunsha’s (芳文社) seinen manga magazine Manga Time Kirara (まんがタイムきらら) between the May 2007 and October 2010 issues. Later on, the manga relaunched in April 2011 with two separate storylines published in Manga Time Kirara and Manga Time Kirara Carat (まんがタイムきららCarat). The new Manga have been around for only one year with two storylines, there still much potential to be explored.
We have been engaging in discussing whether there will be a third season. As the movie released last year with Blu-ray coming in July 18, we are going to have a recharge of the K-ON! passion. However, we won’t expect the third season to come out this soon, but there might be some related announcement coming in the next issue of the magazine if the rumor turns out to be true.
Update: It appears the rumor will be true according to ANN. We will get back to this upon confirmation later this week. Stay tuned
