At the end of "K-ON!" episode 11 aired on June 11th, the next episode was called "The final episode 'Keion!'".

Screenshot of the preview

The preview caused a turmoil on the internet and a news website reported that K-ON! series was cut down to 12 episodes, even accelerated the confusion.

Getnews, reporting the turmoil

However, all the major anime magazines released this month announced that the episode 13 will be aired on June 25. The chances are quite slim that K-ON! was shortened by one episode.

Newtype Channel

The synopsis of episode 13 indicates it's an extra story after the school festival.

Updated
According to the official BBS of K-ON!, the TBS staff denied the rumor of shortening. She said "The airing continues until episode 13. Ep12 is the final episode, and Ep13 is a Bangaihen (extra episode)".

So we might actually see them play instruments and sing? Because after the 2nd episode the story line totally fell apart into a big MOE MOE blob.

I'm confused. Wasn't it widely known this series was 13 episodes? I know I knew that beforehand...

Well, not that I care since it's a result I'd expected. Just being perplexed here.

In the preview they are presenting Episode 12 as the last one. Thats the turmoil.

Lol. After seeing what they did with Clannad and After Story, I kinda thought they'd do the same with K-On!

It's quite funny how this turned into a big fuss.

Not unexpected. After all, the manga is only two volumes long, so more than likely they're calling ep 13 an extra episode cos it's more filler or original content than based on the manga.

I bet ep 13 it a Mio-centric special. We haven't had any episodes like that, and Mio needs her exposure.

It's highly likely that K-ON! has a DVD/Blu-ray only episode since there are seven volumes and each disc contains two episodes. I'll post about it when it's officially announced.

I'm going to guess you consider most of the 1-2 minute practice scenes on their "camp" as the playing, because last time checked I watch it when it airs, so no need for your comments :-p

It's sad when we see them play for only a handful of minutes and have to wait 11 episodes to get back onto the main story.

I think they want to make it shorter because of Haruhi Suzumiya 2009!

To many OVAs Kyoani are making....

I think Kyoani will do
FMP 4
or
LuckyStar S2
or
Little Busters!

who needs episode 13 when you have an account on pixiv...

seriously though it ends when it ends... just means I'll need to make a new signature. I think it's left a lasting impression on the aniverse, to the joy of some and dismay of others. I'll just be glad I enjoyed it while I could. :)

Its amazing how they blatantly do not show them actually play any instruments but twice. Even their first time on stage was ruined by a really lame 'music video' of sorts.

Nice, KyoAni does a good job. It would be awful if the final episode will be aired a few months later like most animes nowadays as that has become a popular trend.

The popular trend is to release the final episode in dvd exclusive a few months after the second last episode of the anime. I don't like the idea of waiting a few months to see an ending.

the little "moe" totally side tracked from the story in general , it just became a mindless anime that is easy on the eyes without you having to focus on any sort of plot development

haha you could agree with me or disagree but i liked ur comment you made, the show is good when you don't have to think but i am actually thankful it is only short season

edit: mugi is my favorite and i just got tired of all that mindless moe of a blob mio, sorry to offend people that like her

edit: i dont understand how ending it "soon" is worrying people, all i see is they form club ... insert moe .... add new member ... more moe ... play concert (Finally) ... end , there is no reason to drag it on for another season

They must have an extra episode or something. Ending it this soon is too sad. :(

This would have been much better if the post-festival episode was some extra episode that they tagged on later, but it'll be good anyway I would think.

If its actually shortened, then congrats to whoever did it.

Shows you that there are people who still use their brains and could understand on how miserably bad this show is.


Now if only all "K-On" fans would follow their show and "end" their fanboyism, starting to grow up.

This. The manga is just as aimless most of the time.

Why does noone ever read my posts? Have I been put on the 'ignore' list of everyone on this forums?

The season HAD to end at this juncture because the MANGA is no further along than where the anime is going to stop. The MANGA is onlyn TWO volumes long at this point.

Jebus, I wish people would at least read my posts ONCE in a while...

WAIT, IT'S BEEN IMPLEMENTED!?

*checks* No, it hasn't. God, you had my hopes up there.
And I don't think all the people on MAL would ignore you either way, it's just common that people don't read all the posts in a thread and just write down whatever they feel like writing. I read your post, btw, and there could also be the possibility that the anime didn't want to follow the manga's exact storyline. But now that it's only 13 episodes, I might watch it.

Don't get your hopes up. After all, the manga is still ongoing, so it's more than likely that in a few years we'll have a second anime season... maybe even a third.

I wish the idiot's who produce this stuff would learn that fans usually prefer their anime in one season, no matter how long it is.

But greedy producers want $$$ in their pockets. Fast.

Yep, I knew that this was like with Clannad. So the last episode is extra.
