A very disappointing piece of news has surfaced this week for the Blue Period manga fans. The June 2017 release series has gone through many delays and the future of the series always seemed a bit uncertain. However, due to its apparent success in circulations, the manga was adapted into an anime series. The show released its first season last year in October and was praised worldwide. Now, with the manga facing a delay, what could be the reason behind it? Finally, when will it be back again?
Blue Period is a Japanese manga series centering around one prime focus throughout the story. The popular text is a creation of Tsubasa Yamaguchi. The series has won several awards and is currently ongoing. The success caught the eyes of Studio Seven Arcs, the production company behind its anime adaption. The anime series began on October 2, 2021, and has released over 12 episodes to date.
Blue Period Manga Goes Through A Delay While The Author Recovers!
The news broke out on the official Twitter account of the creator of the series. The author stated that she had felt a bit under the weather for the past few days. The ill-health of the mangaka resulted in her getting a PCR test. The test confirmed that she had contracted the Covid-19 virus. The fans began hoping for a quick recovery for the author soon after the tweet.
Yamaguchi later tweets another statement. The tweet confirmed that the author would focus on resting and getting better in the process. Seems like it is the season of delays in the popular manga. One such name on the long list is World Trigger. One Piece also faced a delay back in April 2020. Whereas, My Hero Academia has also suffered several delays this pandemic season.
When Is Blue Period Manga Returning?
Reportedly, Tsubasa Yamaguchi will be taking a rest for a month, so the manga is expected to release according to that time. Blue Period Manga has produced 11 volumes till now. The text is a fan favorite, so the delay is very unlikely to cause a problem in the success. Plus, the comments on the mangaka’s Twitter page were filled with fans concerned and endearing responses.
However, if the health worsens, then a further halt can be expected. So, a certain release date is hard to point out at the timing of writing. The series is likely to start publishing in the April issue. All in all, the manga is an award-winning piece that collected fans from all around the world.
What Is The Future Of The Anime Series?
Blue Period’s anime success has not been as great as the manga. The much-awaited series came out in October 2021 and went on till December of that year. The series did not receive much of a huge response from the audience. However, the series is streamed on Netflix on a weekly basis, so the content is surely amazing. As of now, the makers are yet to announce a renewal. Whereas the production house has been adapting the manga pretty quickly.
Season 1 of Blue Period concluded five volumes of the manga. With the manga taking a break, the animation team might have less content to adapt to. But considering the popularity of the series, it is sure to make a comeback soon.
Blue Period Season 2: Release Date
So, with no official announcement about a renewal, Blue Period Season 2 seems like a long wait. however, with six more volumes to animate, Seven Arcs has enough content for another season. So, Blue Period Season 2 might come out by the end of 2022 or early 2023. Netflix Japan might also be considering putting the series for worldwide streaming.
