The new anime series, Blue Period, is now getting a pre-sale with the characters at a few well-known bookstores in Japan!

The manga series with the same name, written by Tsubasa Yamaguchi, won the 13th Manga Taishō award and the 44th Kodansha Manga Award for Best General Manga in 2021. The manga series then got adapted to an anime this year.

The series focuses on Yatora Yaguchi, a high school student, who despite his good grades and good social life, keeps feeling like something is lacking. He continues to feel empty until he discovers art thanks to a senpai from the art club and immediately gets drawn to it. He eventually decides to take up art and continue to do it for a living.
