"Blue Period" is a story about art by Yamaguchi Tsubasa that is currently being serialized on "Monthly Afternoon".
It depicts Yaguchi Yatora, a high school boy with excellent grades and good looks with inner emptiness and frustrations, devoting himself to the beautiful yet harsh art world after being amazed by a single piece of art.
TV anime "Blue Period" will broadcast in 2021. Do look forward to future announcements.
I'm quite happy because anime adaptation is one of the goals of a manga artist.
This anime of "Blue Period" will be re-interpreted and re-constructed by the professionals, such as the director and staff. I have a strange feeling that I am sharing this work with everyone as if it had left me and it will be a different "Blue Period".
After taking the exam at the art college, I feel a bit awkward that the exam of the art college will become an anime.
I am supervising the anime production while being exciting, so I'm also looking forward to seeing how Yatora and others will move and talk.
