“This is a manga that all Japanese should defiantly read! and when you finally enjoy the end of my series “Attack on Titan” hopefully you would check out Blue Lock.” 

– Hajime Isayama

The Blue Lock manga is written by Kaneshiro Muneyuki and illustrated by Nomura Yusuke in 2018. It follows Yoichi Isagi as he loses the opportunity to go to the national high school championships because he passed to his teammate, who missed instead of shooting himself. Isagi is one of 300 U-18 strikers chosen by Jinpachi Ego, a man who was hired by the Japan Football Association.

That after the 2018 FIFA World Cup, to guide Japan to win the World Cup by destroying Japanese football. Ego’s plan is to isolate the 300 strikers into a prison-like institution called “Blue Lock”, in order to create the world’s biggest “egotist”/striker, which has been lacking in Japanese football.

If you are wondering, let us tell you that you can read Blue Lock by buying the volume bundles online on manga retail sites. It is being serialized in the Weekly Shonen Jump but not included on Viz.com yet. Let’s hope Kodansha approves its legal digital release soon.
