K-ON! Manga Comes To An End This September

Is Houkago Tea Time meeting its end?


Can't get enough of the ladies of K-ON!? Neither can the rest of Japan, but the bad news is, all good things must come to an end eventually, and K-ON! is no exception.
 
ANN reports that the popular manga that has run in Houbunsha's  recently had a footnote indicating the next installment would be the last (coming out on the 9th of September). It was also confirmed that the final installment of (the fourth compiled book volume) will ship on September 27th.
 
Lucky for US readers, Yen Press licensed the original manga, so we can read it here. However, I have a strong feeling even though this manga is ending, we may see some other kind of spin-off in the very near future. After all, with a cash cow like K-ON! on your hands, who could resist?

Just like Lucky Star, when one big slice of life dies, another is reborn. So I expect another show will come out from this.

Maybe they should make a K-On movie next. I'd probably watch it.

Having only watched the anime, I assume I still have a decent amount of K-on left in my life before it disappears.

I've been watching and reading K-ON and off for a while now. And What interested me in the beginning ( cause I'm not a huge fan of "slice-of-life" manga) has been fading since the first couple of chapters. So I'm glad its coming to an end. But I totally agree this wont the last time we see these girls.
