The anime news keeps on coming. Ready? The award-winning manga Blue Period is officially getting an anime adaptation.

Series creator Tsubasa Yamaguchi dropped the news on Twitter, along with a special illustration in celebration of the reveal. An official Twitter for the series has also been created.

The manga began publication in June 2017. The series follows Yatora, the perfect high school student. But Yatora is also a very bored high school student, as everything comes easily to him.

When he wanders into the art room one day, a painting captures him. Soon, he’s compelled to dive right into the world of art, learning just how unforgiving the art world can really be!

Blue Period has been nominated for and won several awards. It was nominated for the 12th Manga Taisho awards in 2019, before going on to win the 13th Manga Taisho awards in 2020.
