Volume 4 (Complete)

This is the complete volume 4, re-edited using tankoubon raws. It includes previously released chapters 0-13 with some revisions, corrections, and additions (additional background text and signs were translated, existing sign and song translations were expanded/made more detailed thanks to extra space afforded by higher resolution raws). This release also includes newly translated covers (regular and 4 (!) special), omake pages, and the final afterword by Kakifly-sensei. As promised, this release comes in 2 editions (for reasons behind these editions see here):

“Proper” Edition:

Mediafire
Rapidshare

“Real University” Edition:

Mediafire
Rapidshare

There is also a v2 for volume 3 (cover redone using better raws I found, special Melonbooks cover added, several pages releveled, split into 2 editions) and a v2 for volume 2 (order of cover omake pages reversed, several pages releveled).

It’s December, so the seniors should have already seen Azusa&Co play at the school festival and are now probably making plans for their first Christmas party in college. Meanwhile juniors are probably busy studying for their Center Test. Can’t help but wonder how the whole “living by herself” thing is working out for Yui. Perhaps one day we will find out…


As is customary when completing a series, I would like to say thanks to the following people:

Kakifly-sensei

Person who uploaded most of the raws I used and whom I only know by Share ID koutaro

My readers who uploaded raws I couldn’t find elsewhere: Shadow, Anon555, PasserBy, Flat Hair, omimon, Anonymous

My fellow translator Tonigobe who maintains a list of Japanese manga SFX, which continues to save me time on all my projects

Staff (and especially leaders) of FoOlRuleZ, Shiki, and Pew Pew Scans who gave me the motivation I needed to go back and release volumes 1 and 2 under Houkago Translations


Well then, next up is Daioki’s story from C74 Kirara special, and after that I’ll be starting on volume 2 of the anthology (I’m still looking for the volume 3 (anthology) raws, if anyone can provide them it would be much appreciated). BD omake will be translated as raws come out. Stay tuned…

    Hi!
    I just found this site and
    Thank you very much for your hard work! ^_^
    But I would like to ask a question.
    I have realized that some color pages are black and white in this volume.
    Is it because of the raw? or Convert into black and white in purpose?
    I’m just curious.. Hee hee. 😛

    Thank you. Your work on K-ON is an excellent example of how to do a translation that does justice to the original work. Your achievement is all the more impressive because you did everything yourself.

    ?????????I've been really looking forward to the last volume, and I'm quite excited to re-read it now that it's ready. I'm looking forward to your next project too!
