kakifly's college relaunch of 4-panel comedy to end in Manga Time Kirara mag

The June issue of Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara magazine will announce on Wednesday that the K-ON! manga will end in the next issue on June 9. kakifly resumed the four-panel comedy manga in the magazine in April 2011 to follow Yui and the other characters in their college years. The creator will continue writing the separate K-ON! manga with Azusa, Ui, Jun, and the other characters still in high school that also launched in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Carat magazine in April 2011.

kakifly's original four-panel comedy manga follows a group of high school girls who form an afterschool rock band. The manga had ended its first run in September 2010. Yen Press began publishing the manga in North America in November 2010.

K-ON!!, the second television anime series based on the manga, ran in Japan in 2010, and the K-ON! film premiered last December. Bandai Entertainment released the anime's first season in North America in 2011 before it stopped releasing new titles this past February.

Sentai Filmworks licensed the 26-episode anime sequel and the accompanying OVA. The company will begin releasing the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in North America on June 19.
