Synopsis

Yoichi Isagi was mere moments away from scoring a goal that would have sent his high school soccer team to the nationals, but a split-second decision to pass the ball to his teammate cost him that reality. Bitter, confused, and disappointed, Isagi wonders if the outcome would have been different had he not made the pass. When the young striker returns home, an invitation from the Japan Football Union awaits him. Through an arbitrary and biased decision-making process, Isagi is one of three hundred U-18 strikers selected for a controversial project named Blue Lock.

The project's ultimate goal is to turn one of the selected players into the star striker for the Japanese national team. To find the best participant, each diamond in the rough must compete against others through a series of solo and team competitions to rise to the top. Putting aside his ethical objections to the project, Isagi feels compelled to fight his way to the top, even if it means ruthlessly crushing the dreams of 299 aspiring young strikers.

"CARRIED BY ANIMATION"

Yes. Blue Lock is literally a sports series who can only offer good animation and good looking characters. Now, that's not totally a bad thing cuz I, myself is a sucker for animanga with good looking and all boys characters whom I can ship with each other.

BUT! As a fan of sports animes, I hate those who can't even represent the sports properly. Although I don't play sports, I highly respect each of them and I despise those who makes them look ridiculous and stupid.

Story (4): Maybe you think it's too early for me to give a review when the anime is ...

Spoiler
Blue Lock's plot is simple. To produce the greatest striker in the world and to make a football team consist only of best strikers and win the world cup. Against who? Of course it's against other teams that also consist of strikers and was locked up in other facility like blue lock.

It has one straight line to the conclusion, so the outcome is pretty much predictable. In simple words, blue lock is all about strikers. Other positions is not important and nonexistent in the story.

For a non-football fan, they might think that's okay but I'm sure majority of football fans, or even just sports fans ...

I've seen moderate hype around this anime and was wondering - so I gave it a watch.

And what can I say - it's one of those anime catered towards the "14-year old Tumblr-Girls" of the community. I can't express how much I dislike this side of the anime audience. Tokyo Revengers, Jujutsu Kaisen, Haikyuu and now Blue Lock. While I certainly don't mind some fangirl-bait when the show is somewhat good or funny (e.g. Haikyuu or JJK), it more recently felt like shows revolving around that got progressively worse. I already hated the amount of Gojo "art" I've seen on the internet, oh lord.
