Blue Period Anime Adaptation Shares Appropriately Blue Key Visual

Back in January, an anime adaptation was announced for Blue Period, Tsubasa Yamaguchi’s award-winning manga about art. The series is set to premiere in Japan sometime this year, and the latest update is here to reveal its main staff along with a teaser visual.

Blue Period will have Kouji Masunari (Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic) on board as general director, Katsuya Asano (Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS) as director, and Reiko Yoshida (Girls und Panzer) as series composition writer. Tomoyuki Shitaya (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma) will provide character designs for the Seven Arcs production.

The teaser visual features protagonist Yatora Yaguchi facing his canvas against the backdrop of an appropriately blue Shibuya scramble crossing along with the tagline, “Tell me about the world you can see.”

Kodansha Comics publishes Blue Period in English and describes it:

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!
