Season 1 finale of the Blue Period anime released on Netflix on Dec 25, 2021, but will the anime series return for season 2. Will there be Blue Period Season 2? Here’s what we know. 

  • The first season of Blue Period anime aired on Netflix for international viewers from Oct 9, 2021, to Dec 25, 2021.
  • Blue Period hasn’t been renewed for the second season yet.

Blue Period is a slice of life anime based on a manga of the same name written and illustrated by Tsubasa Yamaguchi. It follows Yatora Yaguchi, a perfect high school student, who appears to be active but deep down he feels emptiness. The anime series is about this boy discovering his passion for art and deciding to follow it as his dream. This art anime impressed the anime community and that’s the reason the viewers are demanding its second season. The first season of Blue Period anime consists of 12 episodes debuted on Netflix for international viewers on Oct 9, 2021. The first season finale landed on the streaming service on Dec 25, 2021.

Blue Period is a beautiful anime that talks about art being heavily entangled with a person’s emotions. It garnered acclaim from audiences and critics for its emotional scenes, brilliant characterization and impeccable adaptation. The first season holds an impressive 7.88/10 score on Myanimelist and a 7.8/10 score on IMDb.

In this article, we will discuss everything about the second season of Blue Period anime.

Has Blue Period been renewed for season 2?

As of March 4, 2022, the Blue Period anime series hasn’t been officially renewed for season 2 by Seven Arcs (a Japanese anime production company). However, fans around the world are optimistic that the emotional anime will return for its second season.

Though loved by the fans internationally, Blue Anime hasn’t received much applause in the origin country Japan. It failed to make it to the Netflix Japan top 10. However, it received sincere results on Myanimelist and IMDb. So, what are the chances of its renewal? Well, it depends on the popularity and the availability of the source material.

As we mentioned above, Blue Period anime is based on a manga of the same name. There are a total of 11 volumes. The latest volume was published on Sep 22, 2021. The first season of Blue Period used around six volumes of the manga. So, currently, there are just five volumes available for adaptation.

Since the first season adapted around six volumes, we assume the same amount of source material would be required for another season. It means the production studio doesn’t have enough source material at this time.

However, the manga series is continuing as we are expecting the next volume to be out in a month or two. So, we can expect the production for the second season to start as soon as the 12th volume releases.

Blue Period Season 2 Release Date

It’s difficult to predict the release date for the second season as the studio hasn’t announced it yet. Source material should not be an issue as the manga is ongoing and the next volume is due in Jan 2022.

Considering that studio Seven Arcs renews the anime in a month or two, we can expect Blue Period Season 2 to hit Netflix by the end of 2022 or early 2023.
