Synopsis

After reflecting on the current state of Japanese soccer, the Japanese Football Association decides to hire the enigmatic and eccentric coach Jinpachi Ego to achieve their dream of winning the World Cup. Believing that Japan has lacked an egoistic striker hungry for goals, Jinpachi initiates the Blue Lock—a prison-like facility where three hundred talented strikers from high schools all over Japan are isolated and pitted against each other. The sole survivor of Blue Lock will earn the right to become the national team's striker, and those who are defeated shall be banned from joining the team forever.

Selected to join this risky project is Yoichi Isagi, a striker who failed to bring his high school soccer team to the national tournament. After choosing to pass to a teammate who missed instead of scoring on his own, he could not help but wonder if the results would have been different had he been more selfish. Using this golden opportunity given by the Blue Lock Project, Yoichi aims to clear his doubts and chase his ultimate desire—to become the greatest striker in the world and lead Japan to World Cup glory.

Honestly, out of all the sports anime I have read or watched, this was by far the most interesting. It doesn't focus on "friendship" but rather the "selfishness" and "egoism" of each character. I think stories like these are more realistic because it brings out the true human nature in people. What I mean by this is that the selfishness and egoism of humans are displayed. The characters rely on their egoism throughout the manga to achieve their goal. The main character is very interesting and so are the people around him. I highly recommend this manga because each chapter is amazing! Props to the read more

This Is my first Review so please keep that In Mind.

So, finally we get another GOOD sports series.

Are you tired of super powers?
Are you tired of uninteresting opponents?

Blue Lock fixes It all, It has an Interesting concept and completely fixes
the problems Kuroko and Haikyuu suffers from.

Blue Lock doesn't have unrealistic superpowers, they have qualities that make themselves special.

Opponents are Interesting because everyone shares the same fate, you decide what to think of the characters yourself by looking how they respond to the pressure and stress they are under.

This manga tries to combine the Sports and Psychological genres, and It works wonderfully.

The anime-manga pool has a surprising lack of soccer related series. Being a soccer fan, I am so relieved. Out of the 4 soccer series I experienced, this is the second best. I'm someone who prefers a realistic, tangible approach when it comes to sports. For example, if we compare Slam Dunk with Kuroko's Basketball, we can see how SD is realistic and how exaggerated KB is. And yet, a normal audience will definitely like KB more, largely because of the over-the-top thrill and visual appeal it can offer. It is far too cool. And just like that, Blue Lock vs Ao Ashi is like read more

"After all, a first-rate striker is one who appears in football's most critical moment."

Let me start by saying that this is my first review ever.

Story: 9/10

This story is not the typical sports manga following a highschool team that wants to go and win nationals, it goes beyond that. Instead of emphasizing on the usual qualities, such as teamwork and supporting teammates, it focuses on the “egoism” a player needs to develop in order to become the best. This different approach might seem silly at first since it’s a story about football/soccer -not sure what you call it- but it definitely makes sense later because of read more
