A few months ago, we found out that the award-winning, art-themed manga series Blue Period would get an anime series.
On Tuesday, the creators released a promo video for the series to DMM Pictures’ YouTube channel. And it looks about as creative and artistic as you might expect:
We now also know the main cast for the anime series. Hiromu Mineta will play protagonist Yatora Yaguchi, a high school student who develops a desire to paint. Mineta also voices the title character in Cestvs: The Roman Fighter.
They picked some interesting names for the rest of the cast:
- Yumiri Hanamori plays Yatora’s classmate Ryuji Ayukawa, who invites Yatora to the art club. Hanamori is also Nadeshiko in Yuru Camp.
- Daiki Yamashita voices Yotasuke Takahashi, a standoffish, shy, and blunt student that Yatora meets at an art cram school. Yamashita is also Deku from My Hero Academia.
- Kengo Kawanishi will play Haruka Hashida, an eccentric cram school student. Kawanishi’s many roles include Gen in Dr. Stone, and Ritsu Sohma in Fruits Basket.
- Yume Miyamoto will voice Maki Kuwana, another student at the cram school. Miyamoto is currently Mei in Godzilla Singular Point.
