Netflix announced today that D5enst has acquired the anime adaptation of Tsubasa Yamaguchi's award-winning manga, Blue Period, both inside and outside of Japan. A few days before the regular airing, Netflix Japan will be previewing the anime on September 25th. The series should be available from October 9th.

The Japanese band Omoinotake provided the opening theme with their song "EVERBLUE", while Mol-74 provided the ending for their song "Replica".

Koji Masunari is the main director, while Katsuya Asano is directing the anime at Studio Seven Arcs. Reiko Yoshida writes and oversees the scripts, while Tomoyuki Shitaya is responsible for character design.

Kodansha Comics licensed the manga, which describes the story as follows:

Yatora is the perfect high school student, with good grades and lots of friends. It's an effortless feat, and ultimately ... a boring one. But one day when he goes into the art space, a lonely painting catches his eye, which awakens him to an unknown beauty. Inevitably, he plunges headlong into art - and will soon find out how wild and ruthless art can be!
