The short teaser is just what I expected – with a clear focus on the players’ footwork and their unique personality, the video is sure to make you want more. The studio has also done a fantastic job of adapting some breathtaking scenes from the manga. 

The story follows Isagi Yoichi, one among 300 of Japan’s best strikers, i.e., players responsible for scoring goals, gathered at the Blue Lock Facility. To be the world’s best striker, Yoichi starts his climb to the top from the bottom with his band of unlikely friends in Team Z.

Though the recently revealed cast of Blue Lock seems to be quite green, the staff truly makes up for it. Many staff members have worked on classics such as Death Note and even the latest hits like Haikyu!!, yet another magnificent sports anime. 

Blue Lock might be the next anime for you if you were a fan of Inazuma 11 or Captain Tsubasa, but the series doesn’t need moves like God’s hand to hook you in. The series’s realism and solid tournament arcs will make you fall in love all on your own. 

About Blue Lock

Blue Lock is a Japanese manga series written by Muneyuki Kaneshiro and illustrated by Yusuke Nomura. It has been serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine since August 2018. Blue Lock won the 45th Kodansha Manga Award in the shōnen category in 2021.

The story begins with Japan’s elimination from the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which prompts the Japanese Football Union to start a program scouting high school players who will begin training in preparation for the 2022 Cup.

Isagi Youichi, a forward, receives an invitation to this program soon after his team loses the chance to go to Nationals because he passed to his less-skilled teammate.

Their coach will be Ego Jinpachi, who intends to “destroy Japanese loser football” by introducing a radical new training regimen: isolate 300 young strikers in a prison-like institution called “Blue Lock”.
