Frank, the father of six, is an alcoholic bum that fails to pull his weight around the house, leaving the role of head of the family to his eldest daughter Fiona, who takes care of her five younger siblings, Lip, Ian, Debbie, Carl, and Liam.

The release of Blue Period brings us into unchartered territory for Netflix. That being we’ve never before seen the streaming service release episodes of a new anime on a weekly basis. If Netflix subscribers tune in to watch Blue Period on a weekly basis, we may see historic turn in the way Netflix will release their exclusively licensed anime in the near future.

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!
