Plot Of The Anime

Blue Lock anime episode release date

After failing to win the World Cup, there’s unrest in the Japanese Soccer community. Many of the older patrons of the sport aren’t too disturbed by the lack of trophies, but newcomer Anri Teiri is furious – and she’s determined to fix what she sees as the problem with Japanese players. To that end, she hires maverick trainer Jinpachi Ego, who devises a strange yet rigorous plan: he takes the three hundred best young soccer players in the country, sends them to a state-of-the-art training facility, and whittles them down until he has the absolute best striker in the nation.

Yoichi Isagi is one of the boys chosen for the camp. He may be number 299 out of 300, but nothing – and no one – is going to stand in his way of coming out on top.
