Where to Watch Online?
If you are currently residing in Japan then you can easily watch the show on the Super Animeism block on MBS and TBS. The episodes will be also available on Netflix Japan.
Outside of Japan, Netflix will stream the latest episodes one week after the Japanese broadcast. The episodes at first will be available in Japanese dub with multiple subtitles options to choose from and the English dub and other localised dubs will be added soon.
This is the first time an anime (along with Komi-san Can’t Communicate) will be aired weekly episodes through Netflix (outside of the Japanese version), with the majority of exclusive series only launching after the entire series has concluded its domestic broadcast.
When the English dub for Blue Period will premiere?
With Netflix streaming the show globally, the English Dub of Blue Period already has been confirmed and now it is only a matter of when it will premiere. We are expecting Netflix to follow their similar old method of releasing the English dub and all other dub versions once the show has ended, so believe the Blue Period English dub will premiere in February 2022.
How many episodes Blue Period will have?
It has been already confirmed that season 1 of “Blue Period” will run for a total of 13 episodes starting from October 2, 2021, to December 25, 2021. A new episode will be released every Saturday at 12:00 AM JST. You can check the schedule we have created above for the exact dates of episode releases.
