This appeared within the pages of Manga Time Kirara. It’s a follow-up of the previous month’s news announcement.
From this, it’s clear that the K-ON!! series will be diverging into two branches:
- University Life: featuring Tainaka Ritsu, Hirasawa Yui, Akiyama Mio and Kotobuki Tsumugi.
- Highschool Life: featuring Nakano Azusa, Hirasawa Ui, Suzuki Jun.
From this, it looks like Ui and Jun will be joining keion-bu as new members, with Azusa as the leader.
The new series will restart in the May and June edition.
