Netflix is back with another anime series, this time with the highly-anticipated Blue Period. The anime series is full of life, beauty, and all things artistic, but what makes this particular story different is that it's bound to resonate extremely well with people of all ages.

An adaptation of the Japanese manga written and illustrated by Tsubasa Yamaguchi, the anime series follows the story of popular student Yatora Yaguchi who, despite having everything, feels nothing but emptiness inside of him. However, he discovers his love for art after looking at a painting and then decides to put his every emotion to excel at painting and get selected into the Tokyo University of the Arts.

Here's everything viewers need to know about Netflix's Blue Period.

The official synopsis of the manga series for Blue Period reads:

"Yatora is the perfect high school student, with good grades and lots of friends. It's an effortless performance, and, ultimately... a dull one. But he wanders into the art room one day, and a lone painting captures his eye, awakening him to a kind of beauty he never knew. Compelled and consumed, he dives in headfirst—and he's about to learn how savage and unforgiving art can be!"
