K-ON! Manga Ends in September

Posted by Jon

Could the K-ON! manga be coming to an end? This story just went live on ANN.

A footnote on the bottom of kakifly's K-ON! manga in the September issue of Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara magazine lists the next installment as the final one. The September issue officially ships on Monday.

Now, don't start panicking just yet. This only means that K-ON! will no longer be serialized in Manga Time Kiara. It's entirely possible that kakifly could continue the manga in another serial magazine. On the other hand, this could mean that the next chapter will indeed be the final one, and the series will end with the girl's graduation from high school. This theory is further supported by the K-ON!! anime, which will finish airing in late September. Perhaps the manga and anime will end simultaneously, like Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

Personally, I think it's about time for K-ON! to take its last bow. It's been a fun ride, but the show has become somewhat creatively bankrupt and repetitive as of late. But don't despair, moe fans! Kyoto Animation's next project, Nichijou, is already in the works.

Kyoani’s Next Project is Nichijou

Posted by Jon

Kyoto Animation, the masters of all things moe, have announced their next project: an animated adaptation of Keiichi Arawi's gag manga Nichijou.

Yeah, I've never heard of it either. Apparently it's something of a mix between Azumanga Diaoh and Cromartie High School, featuring moeblob characters, slapstick comedy and random bouts of deer wrestling. Sounds like this series is right up Kyoani's alley.

The announcement in Shonen Ace.

Could this be the next Lucky Star?
