The upcoming Blue Lock anime revealed a trailer for Rensuke Kunigami, along with a visual that features basic information about the character. The Blue Block anime will be animated by studio 8bit and is set to begin broadcasting later this year.
The hot-blooded forward is voiced by Yuki Ono, who is also narrating the new trailer. The character visual reveals basic information about Rensuke Kunigami, such as height, blood type, birth date, and even shoe size.
The anime is based on a sports manga by Muneyuki Kaneshiro and Yusuke Nomura. The manga started serialization in 2018 in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine. Kodansha is also publishing the manga in English and describes the plot 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?
