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.
This Isn't the sports manga where you relax and watch the story unfold, you need to think.
So far I've only read up until volume 3, the first 2 volumes did lack characters development but volume 3 did a good job.
I'd say that every sports fan should give this manga a try. read more
