Masunari Koji as general director
Young people struggling look beautiful.
Their heart’s cry is uncool but cool.
And, Blue Period is hot!
Asano Katsuya as director
Paintings have a possibility of conveying something that words or sentences cannot.
Where there’s a will, anyone can do painting.
I hope you get interested in painting through this work,.
Yoshida Reiko as series composition and scenario
This work makes me feel like taking my heavy armor off, and bursting into a run.
I hope you feel a pain and shine of blue period.
