Some of them do(I'm 99% sure Bleach does) but just being long is not necessary milking.


Kubo is Kubo. His ending is probably just "Ichigo gets the girl (whichever I, Kubo, end up liking the most), oh, and he's the best warrior (whatever kind of warrior I, Kubo, feel like writing) ever".

Do you know that K-ON manga didn't even sell that well, I believe the highest grossing volume only sold about 100,000 copies....by comparison One Piece recently sold 2.2 MILLION copies of its latest volume.


It'll sell well now. Get it?

You should know the last volumes were made while the anime was already popular, so in your theory, the last manga volume should have sold that much too, but it didn't.

I'm not gonna try to convince either of you, 'cause how the hell could any of you two know the real reason. Unless you know the mangaka personal, but I doubt that.

It had a nice end, which I found a very good ending to the series. So that could mean it was meant to be the actual ending. But maybe the mangaka just felt like taking a moment to think over how to continu the serie the best way possible (like people are debating now too,follow Azusa or Yui?), because he/she really loves this story and wants to tell more about it. You have to admit the mangaka set up some 'save-points' so the series could continu (keionbu has new members, and the four girls are going to the same college). So it could have been planned at forehand that the story wouldn't be over at this point. Don't know if the mangaka is planning to make it an actual sequal, or just a continuation, but if it's the first, than now is the ideal moment to devide the story into a 'highschool' and 'college' arc or something.
But of course, I don't know either, and k-on! definitely has the popularity to make a living out of it, so it could also be a 'save choice' for the mangaka.

We'll see what the reason was when we get our eyes on the new material. If it turns out to be as good or better than the first 4 volumes the mangaka either planned this story or is a pure genius to create something on demand. If it turns out to be worse, you can already guess what the reason was...

Milking, huh? Who cares if it is well done? Shakespeare wrote Rome and Juliet 2 and it was a maserpiece...no wait, he didn’t…but I’d freaking read it, if he did!

Anyway, if the third season keeps the charm of the first two, I am all in. And I don’t give a flying fuck, if the story was meant to be continued or not…heck, there was no story to begin with, so I have no idea what people are complaining about…

Someone doesn't know about product marketing, I see. Since K-ON was over, the demand for a continuation must have gone up. It's similar to how taking away the ball from a baby makes the baby want the ball, even if it didn't before.

Currently there is no manga, and no anime. A series revival whilst K-ON is still hot guarantees even more sales than when the K-ON manga was originally serialised.

Well, yeah, you have a point there, but there won't be much more people buying the manga than before. I guess the people who picked up k-on because they noticed it was so popular, already did before the end of the serialization. Sure, there will be some people who just recently stumbled upon k-on, but I don't really see why the manga would be selling a lot more than before. fans will stay fans, and haters gonna hate. I don't think there will be a lot of changes in both camps, since most people already decided which side they're on.

There may be a hugh request for continuation, but the amount of fans won't drasticly increase all of a sudden. You may take away the ball from 10 babies, but this won't result in you giving balls to 20 babies, since there are only 10 babies who want theirs back. But they do already have a big fanbase to make a lot of money out of k-on.

Oh great the way I see it is as I though, Yui/Mio/Tsumugi/Ritsu go to college while Azusa is struggling to keep the club and that can create another band that has interaction. We can have more MOE girls and more variations of instruments as well as music types.

I also would think this would set it up to another 26 episodes with perhaps a good mix of both groups lives being further explored such as Azusa's parents and the maturing of her. Anything can go.
