Fans of artistic anime have something to look forward to later this year as The Blue Period manga is in the midst of being adapted into an anime series. The project doesn’t have any details with the cast or staff yet but has confirmed a 2021 arrival according to its surfacing in the latest Comic Natalie update. The key visual to the right was produced for the announcement by the original mangaka.
The series comes from Tsubasa Yamaguichi which began in 2017 and has nine volumes released so far as serialized in Afternoon magazine. Kodansha Comics USA has been bringing it out in English with two volumes published so far.

Compelled and consumed, he dives in headfirst—and he’s about to learn how savage and unforgiving art can be!
