We are getting a brand new TV anime folks, and it’s all about art! Kodansha has now announced that Tsubasa Yamaguchi’s The Blue Period. manga is getting its very own TV anime adaptation. It will happen sometime later this year, and Yamaguchi himself celebrated by releasing a new illustration:
Kodansha, which also releases the manga in English, describes the story as:
Yatora is the perfect high school student, with good grades and lots of friends. It’s an effortless performance, and, ultimately … a dull one. But he wanders into the art room one day, and a lone painting captures his eye, awakening him to a kind of beauty he never knew. Compelled and consumed, he dives in headfirst—and he’s about to learn how savage and unforgiving art can be!
The manga has been winning various awards, and was also nominated for many others. It previously won the 13th Manga Taisho awards in 2020, as well as the Best General Manga award in the 44th annual Kodansha Manga Awards in 2020 as well.
