As Netflix’s first weekly anime series, there was naturally a lot of hype surrounding its release. Blue Period was more than just hyped and it is a great addition to Netflix's library. However, we’re still waiting to learn what the future holds for Blue Period on Netflix, and hopefully, a second season is announced soon.
Blue Period is a Japanese internationally licensed Netlfix Original anime series, and the adaptation of the manga Burū Piriodo by Japanese author Tsubasa Yamaguchi.
Yatora, a high school student with excellent grades and many friends is a perfect fit. It’s an effortless performance, and, ultimately … a dull one. He wanders in to the art room and sees a single painting that captures his attention. It awakens him to an entirely new kind of beauty. Compelled and consumed, he dives in headfirst—and he’s about to learn how savage and unforgiving art can be!
Current Official Netflix Renewal Status (Last Updated 23/02/2022).
Blue Period's finale was broadcast live in Japan on December 18, 2021. At the time of writing, it’s been over two months since the finale, and we’re still yet to hear any news on renewal from Netflix, and the animation studio Seven Arcs.
As one of the very first anime titles to be released weekly on Netflix it’s extremely important for the future ofweekly anime on the streaming service that Blue Period was successful.
As there are still many manga source materials to adapt, we fully anticipate the renewal of the series.
With Yatori Yaguchi defying all odds and passing his exams to get into the Tokyo University of the Arts, a new chapter of the budding artist’s life will begin.
Yaguchi, Yotasuke Tahashi was the only student to successfully pass the exam. Others, such as Maki Kuwana and Haruka Himhida who are both highly skilled and experienced artists, failed to pass their exams.
Yaguchi’s inexperience in art was practically his trump card in the exams, offering him an alternate way to approach them and excel. However, once Yaguchi makes the jump to TUA, the challenges that await him artistically will be harder than ever as he’ll find himself surrounded by some of the most talented art students in Japan. He’ll also be at the mercy of the TUA teachers, who may view Yaguchi’s art under more scrutiny than what he does himself. We can also expect Yaguchi’s friendship with fellow art rival Yotasuke to deepen.
Hashidsa and Maki, on the other hand, will continue to study at another university. Maki, meanwhile, will retake the exam in order to join her sister, TUA. Yuka and Hashidsa still desire to work in the fashion industry, so they will continue to strive for that goal.
Season 1 featured twelve episodes that covered 25 of the Blue Period chapters.
There have been 50 chapters of manga published by Kodansha Monthly Afternoon at the time this article was written. At the most, this means that there is enough material to adapt them into a second series.
The publication of new chapters each month means that any plans to create a third season might be delayed while the original material is published.
