New K-ON!! character Miura Akane?
Saw an entry at Japanator advertising a new character to appear in “K-ON!!”, the second season of the music comedy based on the manga by Kakifly that is due to start airing this April. Called Miura Akane, the girl sports a long ponytail and apparently plays the tuba.
Considering the official “K-ON!!” anime series website has not published anything about a new character so far, nor has its character page been updated and other news sites like ANN have not mentioned a new “K-ON!!” character yet it might very well be a hoax.
Due to the size and quality of the images, can’t make out much of the text very well, so am unable to say for sure if they are legitimate or not. Though looking at the second image from the original tweet seen at Japanator, it does look fabricated, such as where Miura is picking up her tuba, seems like an edit of Yui where she has the exact same pose.
So will we see Miura appear in “K-ON!!” or is it a mere hoax or joke?
Well, alas for the hopeful she seems just to be a fan creation, but there’s already plenty of gorgeous art of Miura to be found online.
A question to fans, would you like to see new anime original characters in the second season?
