Last week, Blue Lock proved that its wide range of characters is a strength that not many other anime from the Fall 2022 season possess. As the series becomes more involved with the characters surrounding Isagi, the more it becomes interesting.

Blue Lock Synopsis
Blue Lock is a direct adaptation of the manga that Kodansha Comics describes as:
After a disastrous defeat at the 2018 World Cup, Japan’s team struggles to regroup. But what’s missing? An absolute Ace Striker, who can guide them to the win. The Japan Football Union is hell-bent on creating a striker who hungers for goals and thirsts for victory, and who can be the decisive instrument in turning around a losing match…and to do so, they’ve gathered 300 of Japan’s best and brightest youth players. Who will emerge to lead the team…and will they be able to out-muscle and out-ego everyone who stands in their way?
