The upcoming new Blue Period anime got a cast reveal, a short promo video, a beautiful key visual and a premiere date today.
The currently announced Blue Period cast includes Hiromu Mineta (Futsal Boys!!!!!) as Yatora Yaguchi, Yumiri Hanamori (Laid-Back Camp) as Ryuji Ayukawa, Daiki Yamashita (My Hero Academia) as Yotasuke Takahashi, Kengo Kawanishi (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma) as Haruka Hashida, and Yume Miyamoto (Fragtime) as Maki Kuwana.
The Blue Period anime’s chief director is Koji Masunari (Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic), with Katsuya Asano (Yu-Gi-Oh!) as director, Reiko Yoshida (Liz and the Blue Bird) in charge of scripts and character design by Tomoyuki Shitaya (If My Favorite Pop Idol Made It To the Budokan, I Would Die).
The latest Blue Period key visual (see above) shows off protagonist Yatora. A high school student who unexpectedly falls in love with art after coming across a painting.
It is only then he realizes what a beautiful medium it can be but, of course, not one without its challenges.
The Blue Period anime is based on the coming-of-age manga by Tsubasa Yamaguchi, and will premiere in October this year.
