Blue Period Season 1 Synopsis
Yatora Yaguchi, a second-year high school student, is a delinquent with outstanding grades who is unmotivated to discover his actual destiny in life. Yatora spends his days attempting to retain his academic position while socialising with his similarly unambitious acquaintances. Despite his casual exterior, Yatora is dissatisfied with both activities and wishes to pursue something more satisfying.
While contemplating his predicament, Yatora finds himself staring at Shibuya’s bright environment. Unable to articulate his feelings about the extraordinarily breathtaking sight, he picks up a paintbrush in the hope that his thoughts will be captured on canvas. After gaining an appreciation for his work, the delight he experiences propels him on a quest to gain admission to the highly difficult Tokyo University of the Arts—an institution that accepts just one applicant out of every 200.
Yatora faces numerous obstacles, including talented peers, a lack of comprehension of the fine arts, and efforts to earn his parents’ acceptance. To be considered for one of the five coveted seats in his desired program, Yatora must demonstrate that his inexperience does not define him.
