The anime of “blue lock” is, by far, one of the most successful that the industry has produced at football level. Because yes, it’s true that there are brands like manga that have worked very well, but if in the anime you remove “Captain Tsubasa” and “Inazuma Eleven “… the truth is that you miss a bit of content. However, the story that puts Isagi Yoichi at the forefront of the action turned out to be a mass success that doesn’t seem to be drying up anytime soon.

That being said, for those of you who are still unclear as to what exactly “Blue Lock” is and what to expect from the anime, I’ll tell you a number of key points.

What is the story of Blue Lock? What is the anime about?

  • Reduced to its most basic form, the Blue Lock anime has only one goal: find and forge a goal-hungry Japanese striker who will allow domestic football to finally take on the big international powers.
  • How do you plan to achieve something like this? Well, precisely by making it start rolling the ‘Blue Lock’ program‘.
  • This program is mainly used to train young players who will eventually be able to manage the attacker of the Japanese team. Of course, from the first moment, something is very clear: anyone who fails will be strictly banned from making the Japan team in the future.

  • To ensure that this macabre plan comes to fruition, the Japanese football committee decides to assign the coach Ego Jinpachi as the general manager of it all. And what is the essence of the tests posed by this trainer? GOOD rediscover that pure selfishness of an attacker who shapes a killer in the box.
  • This is how Blue Lock starts with hundreds of young Japanese in a panorama like few othersthe one who will lift them up as the future of football in their country… or the one who will bury them forever by having to give up any hope they had of making it into the top flight.

Who are the main characters in Blue Lock?

Beyond Jinpachi Ego, who is in charge of the “Blue Lock” project, of course what is really relevant are the actors who are part of it. The big names you should keep in mind are these:

  • Yoichi Isagi: The protagonist of the anime. Isagi is a footballer who does not stand out for his physique or his technique, but who has an understanding of the game like few others. Moreover, he also shows an uncanny talent for adapting to playing conditions and assimilating new strategic possibilities to create scoring opportunities.
  • Meguru Bachira: One of Blue Lock’s most relevant supporting characters. Bachira’s football is characterized by having a series of advanced dribbling techniques which allow him to easily defeat one rival after another.
  • Rensuke Kunigami: Another of the characters we quickly came into contact with in Blue Lock. It is characterized by having a powerful physique and his main tool in front of goal is a mid-range shot of great power
  • Hyoma Chigiri: Chigiri is one of the main secondary characters, and has an obvious strong point: his speed. Thanks to his sprinting power, Chigir is able to leave behind his opponents to come across clear scoring chances.
  • Shoei Baro: Baro is one of the most intimidating forwards in all of Blue Lock. He practices anarchic football in which he is the only law, which he applies through almost unmatched physical power and long range shooting which allows him to be a goal threat with great ease.
  • Seishiro Nagi: Nagi is a natural soccer genius who only spent a few months playing before joining Project Blue Lock. Nagi stands out above all by her ability to control the ball in unlikely situationscausing him in turn to create a goal scenario out of nowhere.
  • Rin Itoshi: Rin is a player with very similar conditions to Isagi, except that in addition to having a magnificent reading of the game, he also has very high technical quality and physical conditions. He’s basically a striker who has no weaknesses.

And that’s all you need to know about the “Blue Lock” anime in case you haven’t heard of it. It is important to pay attention to the football that the anime depicts is highly surreal and gives more to the epic scenes that characterize the works of shonen demographics. However, if you don’t mind the lack of realism, the truth is that here you have one of the craziest football stories you can find.
