A Journey Worth Taking: ‘Blue Period’ First Impressions
by Tito W. James
Blue Period follows the unlikely artistic journey of high schooler Yatora Yaguchi who decides to apply to art school after finding inspiration in a painting. With so many anime that focus on action and high concepts it’s refreshing to see a show that centers purely around the drama of making art. Many anime fans are creative types with artistic ambitions. Therefore it’s cathartic to see an anime that explores the struggles many of us have gone through. From understanding artistic principals to convincing his parents that art school is a good idea, the journey of Yatora Yaguchi is one that hits home on multiple levels.
Blue Period is releasing new episodes weekly on Netflix.
