Blue Period tells the tale of a man named Yatora who used to excel in academics but never had a calling in life due to which he felt empty. However, when a chance encounter with an eerily beautiful painting showcased by his school’s art club deeply moves him, he decides to throw everything on the line to paint.
This anime is adapted from the beautiful heartrending manga written and illustrated by Tsubasa Yamaguchi. Netflix will be streaming it on their platform on a weekly basis.
Published on Kodansha, the anime adaptation of Blue Period will finally grace our screens since Netflix will be streaming it all over the world from the 9th of October 2021. However, fans in Japan, they’ll get to watch it from September 25, 2021.
A new trailer was released recently on September 24 with English subtitles. It gave us a good peek into what kind of coming-of-age drama we can expect. Though it’s an anime about a man’s relationship with art and self-expression, it’s quite similar to a sports anime in the sense that an amateur in a particular sport finally masters it with hard work and a little bit of talent.
The trailer explores the inner world of the man who finds solace in painting and decides to appear for the Tokyo University of the Arts. However the road ahead doesn’t seem to be easy as the entrance exams are quite tough to crack with a mere 0.5% acceptance rate.
Towards the later half of the trailer, we got to witness the enchanting combo of the visuals with Blue Period’s opening theme song, Omoinotake’s Everblue. The song perfectly complements the themes and aesthetic sensibility of the anime.
It’s quite likely that the streaming of this anime won’t be restricted to only Netflix. With the hype and popularity of it growing louder with each passing minute, Crunchyroll and Funimation might get the streaming rights of it too.
