‘Blue Period’ to Return in May 2024 Following Hiatus!

Blue Period Anime Meaning (& What Is It About?)

Tsubasa Yamaguchi’s arts-inspired coming-of-age manga Blue Period is one of the most popular titles in its group in recent years. The manga has been adapted into a successful anime series, which has yet to be renewed for a second season, and there is a live-action movie coming up later this year. But, as manga fans will know, the manga series has been on a lengthy hiatus since November 2023, when it was confirmed that the series would be returning this spring, and we finally have confirmation that the manga is coming back on May 24, 2024, in Monthly Afternoon #7/2024.

Back in 2023, it was reported that the manga would be going on a lengthy hiatus, but no specific reason for it has been provided. It probably had to do with the mangaka’s fatigue and health, which is the most common reason for hiatuses in the industry. And while it had been confirmed that the series would be coming back this spring, no specific return date had been given, which had fans worried for a while.

But it has since been confirmed that the manga will indeed be back this spring, as the next chapter of the very popular series is set to return in late May, roughly a month from today. This is certainly an exciting piece of news for fans of the series, who can expect more stories from their favorite fictional universe throughout the year.

While you’re waiting, you can always check out the first season of the anime series, which adapts only part of the manga but is one of the better seinen adaptations in recent years. Also, there is a trailer for the upcoming live-action movie, which is set to be released in Japan in August 2024, so you can enjoy that as well, all while you’re waiting for the new chapters to arrive.

This is all we have for you at the moment, but this is great news for all fans. Of course, we are going to provide you with all the latest updates related to the manga and the series in general, which is why you should keep following us for more information. Before we end, here is a brief official synopsis of the Blue Period series:

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!
