But it all starts to feel empty, and he begins to wonder what part of his life expresses who he is... or even if he has a unique voice at all. Then 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 headfirsthe's about to learn how savage, unforgiving, and exhilirating creating art can be!

    This eighth volume of Blue Period from Kodansha is again translated very ably by Ajani Oloye and reads well. No colour pictures, sadly, although the front and back cover art is superb and the mangakas splash pages are as witty and fun as in the other volumes. Volume 9 should already be out, although the delays continue with the physical editions. All in all, this volume delivers another fascinating look at the life of a group of young artists, trying to realize their dreams and become the best they can be in their chosen fields.
