There has been some unfortunate news that has come up, the Creator of Seinen, Coming of Age, Manga Blue Period, will be taking a One Month Break from serialization in Kodansha’s Monthly Afternoon Manga Magazine due to contracting COVID-19.
Yamaguchi went on to explain that she wasn’t feeling well since the “other day” and picked up a PCR Test, which had confirmed that she contracted COVID-19.
She would follow up in a tweet later that she said that her condition was steadily improving, though all she was doing was “sleeping a lot and healing.”
Blue Period launched in Monthly Afternoon Magazine in June 2017 and has been collected into eleven tankobon volumes as of September 2021, where it would later win the 13th Manga Taisho award and the 44th Kodansha Manga Award for Best General Manga.
In November 2019, Kodansha Comics announced that it would be licensed and printed for English audiences, the sixth volume will be released digitally on February 15th, 2022, and in print on March 22nd, 2022. A TV adaptation aired in the fall 2021 season with Netflix releasing episodes in Japan ahead of the TV broadcast and then internationally a few weeks after.
