There's still no news about it. K-ON is quite popular, though. So, maybe there's a chance.

I hear the manga's gone to shit since the mains graduated, so it may not be the most likely of things.

With that said, I think that GodAni KyoAni is done with the K-On! anime series at this point (the anime, not merchandise). I'd definitely like to see another though.

Unfortunately, it'll probably join the ranks of Full Metal Panic and the like.

(You should probably ask a mod to move this thread to the K-On! section before the moe-haters start their anti-moe/KyoAni hate)

Also, it wouldn't be very good anyway. The continuation of the manga was pretty bad, and it ended very abruptly, so making an anime adaptation would be kind of a bad idea if KyoAni wants to make actually good anime (but then again...).

But then again, people say the anime> the manga.
So KyoAni can make a decent anime adapt even with a crappy manga sequel as their source.

I highly doubt it. Even though Kyoani loves milking things, they don't nearly milk things as dry as Shaft does to theirs. Kyoani realizes that they ended K-On!! on a very good note. The ending was solid, and adapting the horrendously incomplete university chapters would be a mistake. Unless Kyoani takes extreme creative liberties and constructs a nearly entirely original university series, then I can't see it happening.

Hopefully there will be.

Since K-ON! turned out to be such a cash cow for Kyoani, I believe they might do it.

Probably not. It ended at the appropriate time, don't see a need for more.

It doesn't change the fact that K-ON makes buckets of money in Japan though.
To answer the question, probably yes but I don't see it in the immediate future.

I hope so. I'd be waiting for the dub, though. And that might not even happen.

Probably not happening. It's been almost 3 years since the movie came out and nothing has been announced. They've got their hands full with Free, Chuu2 and Kyoukai no Kanata which will keep them busy for at least another year.

More to the point, the new manga is terrible and the anime ended perfectly. Why the hell would you want to risk breaking what doesn't need fixing? Sure the anime has always been vastly superior, but the manga was still okay up until graduation. No amount of effort could make the new manga anywhere near as good as it used to be. A polished turd is still a turd.

Something you're missing is that the manga was already pretty bad to begin with. Almost everyone I've seen who has read it, and myself after reading it, has ended up agreeing the manga was always pretty shitty. This was the pretty much one and only time KyoAni actually made an adaptation that far surpassed the original source material, usually they take out main characters, main parts of the story, and so on - but K-ON was one time where they took a shit manga and made it something much better.

The college stuff wasn't any worse, it's just that more people paid attention to it because of the animated show making people curious and skipping to that part - thus thinking "wow the manga got bad (compared to the anime of the prior stuff)". Rather than comparing the new bits of the manga with the prior stuff. Anyone who read it all claiming otherwise is just looking at it with the bias of the show hanging in their heads over it, making it seem somewhat better.

The one positive thing to say about it is that it did have it's moments - and the college part never has had any, but even in the original stuff that was pretty rare and not exactly the norm.

I personally think K-On! Highschool (second generation Music Club) is a better manga than the original. And it would be a good anime source.

Personally, I'm a bit skeptical K-on on the college continuation from manga to anime for various reasons.

1) Main characters expansion, Dual situation-storyline

- In the college manga version there are tons of new main characters brought in from both Azusa and Yui sides. Keeping track of these characters making them interesting would be a challenge. And what's worse telling two an almost totally separate plotlines and compile it into a single anime series is a mess. Big mess. Either KyoAni pick one or none.

2) Manga ending sucks

-Personal opinion here. Though many peoples agreed on how anime K-on is X1000 better than manga, and how the manga is a shit ( I mean duh, in manga you can't hear the songs and anime visual is better anyway) and they would be right but I have to say I enjoy the manga. I only read the college continuation and it's still as funny and entertaining as I remember it in anime. But the ending is just blunt IMO. There's no resolution nor cliffhanger but it just...plain. So again, either they drag it more than the manga did or just dont and let it end with the S2. It's a perfect ending just the way it is.

3) Seiyuu

This is more of a question (upon my skepticism) rather than a point of argument but where are they anyway? Are they still seiyuu or retired? Can seiyuu be replaced and still be as good as the previous ones or will give different vibe?

4) Japanese

Japanese have a perfection complex. It's their way of doing things with a proper standard, no more no less kinda crap. Passion. They dont care about milking and whatnot. Unlike American in which will dry that milk cow (both have pro and con imo) and why shouldnt they? they gotta a whole world contributing and in US alone is enough to profit them. Not the case on Japan though, idk why but they always seems to be doing things on their own. Maybe it just me. IMO It is almost impossible for any K-on continuation can be made unless some outsider, POWERFUL outsider, start to change things there.

If kyoani would ever feel the need to make another K-On anime it will be because they'll be dessesperate for money which I dont think the will be anytime soon

I just read College and High School storylines, I loved it even though I watched the anime before that.
Their main problems only come from the format : paper manga = no color, no music, no animation, less time... It just sucks xD!
An anime adaptation wouldn't have all those problems. It would have new music, upgraded graphics and animation, and it is definitely possible to gather the previous staff.

So, it is definitely possible to make a decent anime adaptation of these stories. It is undeniable that the end is way too adrupt though, so they better change it.

My guess is it will come back for an important anniversary. By default, I would say it may be announced in 2019 (10 years anniversary of the anime). Wait and see... Personnally, I will lose hope if no anime is announced before 2021 (10 years anniversary for the movie).
Everything changes. Even the happy and funny things eventually disappear. How can I still enjoy this place then?
