Live-Action 'Blue Period' Confirms August Release Date, Releases Trailer!

A coming-of-age drama about artists, Blue Period has become one of the most popular seinen titles of the modern era. Written and illustrated by Tsubasa Yamaguchi, the manga has been published since 2017 and there are 15 collected volumes as of the time of writing. A 12-episode anime adaptation premiered in 2021 and was also a hit, although no official confirmation of a second season has been made since then. But, we do have other great news, as Warner Bros. Japan has just announced that a live-action Blue Period movie is premiering this year in Japanese cinemas.

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!
