On the official site for the Blue Period anime, it was announced that the series will premiere in Japan on October 1. Meanwhile, Netflix confirmed that they will globally broadcast Blue Period weekly starting October 9, about a week after Japan. This isn’t often the case, and we usually we have to wait for the broadcast to finish in Japan so that all episodes can release at once. Another notable example of a weekly release on Netflix was Violet Evergarden back in 2018.
You can watch the trailer for Blue Period below:
Omoinotake performs the opening song titled “EVERBLUE,” while Mol-74 performs the ending theme titled “Replica.”

Synopsis of Blue Period
The series is available in English on Kodansha’s website, and they describe the story:
Yatora is the perfect high school student, with good grades and lots of friends. It’s an effortless performance, and, ultimately…a dull one. But he wanders into the art room one day, and a lone painting captures his eye, awakening him to a kind of beauty he never knew. Compelled and consumed, he dives in headfirst — and he’s about to learn how savage and unforgiving art can be!
Blue Period arrives on Netflix in less than a month, and fans are probably happy that it will be a weekly release. A week later is certainly better for fans than waiting for months until it finishes broadcast in Japan.
Meanwhile, they will release JoJo Part 6 monthly starting December.
