What’s The Plot of Blue Period Anime?

Blue Period follows the story of Yatora Yaguchi, a popular student who, despite having everything, feels nothing but emptiness inside of him.

When Does Blue Period Come Out?

Release Date

When writing this post, Blue Period is set to premiere with the release of Episode 1 on Saturday, October 9th, 2021.

The showrunners confirmed that Netflix would stream the anime for the international audience. However, unlike its other original shows, the streaming platform will release Blue Period episodes weekly. So, it’s best to take a subscription if you don’t have to already.

Also, Netflix has acquired the rights to stream Blue Period, so it’s unlikely that you’ll see the anime appearing on other platforms such as Crunchyroll and Funimation.

Release Time

Netflix generally updates the platform with new episodes and movies at midnight PDT (Pacific Timing). So, it’s safe to say that Blue Period episode 1 will also be available to watch at 12 AM PDT. However, the release time may vary depending on your region.

Anyway, if the above timing stays correct, here’s when you’ll get episode 1 in these regions:

  • Pacific Time: 12 AM PDT on October 9th
  • Central Time: 2 AM CDT on October 9th
  • Eastern Time: 3 AM EDT on October 9th
  • British Time: 8 AM BST on October 9th
