Being in contact with the author herself, she has expressed her sadness over seeing people pirate the manga (and that includes scanlating it). I don't have any authority to tell you guys what to do/what not to do, but please, if you end up enjoying the novel or manga, consider offering her your support. It's fine if you can't or don't have the means to or you simply just don't want to, but at least keep it in mind if you can!> > >
I just pre-ordered the novel, I hope that compensates it a little...
I'd get the manga but I don't see it in English :(
I suppose I should buy it in Japanese and practice a little (is hard though)
Re-watching K-On! I would say Tsumugi's crush on Sawako-chan is actually the most yuri part of the show, followed by Yui's for Azusa. Which makes it interesting people think Ritsu/Mio is the big couple. I guess they're the most reciprocal pair. I think Yamanaka-sensei's problem with men, even though she's beautiful and popular, is a problem Mugi can fix.
Mio and Ritsu are pretty much a married couple, just remember their class play in the second season.
But I got to admit that I re-watched K-on after whatching love love sunshine and was surprised how little Yuri K-on has in comparison.
