BLUE LOCK is a Japanese manga written by Muneyuki Kaneshiro and illustrated by Yusuke Nomura. Studio 8bit animated the first TV anime season that premiered in October 2022 and ran for 24 episodes. In addition to the Nagi movie which premiered in April, a 2nd TV anime season is also in production. It is set for an October 2024 premiere.

Kodansha licensed the manga in English, while Crunchyroll streams the anime. They describe the story:
Japan’s desire for World Cup glory leads the Japanese Football Association to launch a new rigorous training program to find the national team’s next striker. Three hundred high school players are pitted against each other for the position, but only one will come out on top. Who among them will be the striker to usher in a new era of Japanese soccer?
