Developed from a manga series written and illustrated by Tsubasa Yamaguchi, ‘Blue Period’ tells the story of Yatora Yaguchi, who finds joy and meaning in his life when he begins painting earnestly. He has always been a hard-working student. As painting becomes his main passion, he devotes himself entirely to art. He is also incredibly practical and knows the financial situation of his family.
The pilot episode, titled ‘Awakening to the Joy of Painting,’ shows Yatora hanging out with his friends and getting good marks at school, but nothing seems to bring him happiness. One day, he catches the sight of an art piece painted by one of his seniors, Maru Mori, and everything changes for him. Following that senior’s advice, he paints a blue version of Shibuya and starts seriously considering the prospect of studying painting in college. However, his only viable option is the Tokyo University of the Arts, a public school where the painting department admits only a few aspiring students every year. If you are wondering what is in store for you in the next episode, we got you covered.

Yatora will learn about dessins; how to measure shape, angle, and distance using a pencil; and how to depict light and shadow in paintings.
