Blue Lock Anticipation



Blue Lock manga is getting an anime adaptation.

Plot Synopsis

Quote:
After reflecting on the current state of Japanese soccer, the Japanese Football Association decides to hire the enigmatic and eccentric coach Jinpachi Ego to achieve their dream of winning the World Cup. Believing that Japan has lacked an egoistic striker hungry for goals, Jinpachi initiates the Blue Lock—a prison-like facility where three hundred talented strikers from high schools all over Japan are isolated and pitted against each other. The sole survivor of Blue Lock will earn the right to become the national team's striker, and those who are defeated shall be banned from joining the team forever.

Selected to join this risky project is Yoichi Isagi, a striker who failed to bring his high school soccer team to the national tournament. After choosing to pass to a teammate who missed instead of scoring on his own, he could not help but wonder if the results would have been different had he been more selfish. Using this golden opportunity given by the Blue Lock Project, Yoichi aims to clear his doubts and chase his ultimate desire—to become the greatest striker in the world and lead Japan to World Cup glory.

There is something I agree about what the crazy guy said, you win by scoring and there is nothing else.

That's why madrid is the king but they have so much hate because all the excuses of the world, but they score and they win, that's it. Barcelona is a living meme now because of that, you can play with 1000000000 passes in the match but if you lose what is the point?, it's not about who deserves to win because one team played better than the other, you score and that's it.

It's simple. Just watch the barcelona vs bayer match, barcelona was killing them but bayer won, that's it.

I don't know about this survival soccer but let's see. Ao ashi set the bar too high and I doubt this will be as good, meh I'm with the three chapter rule with this.

I don't go in thinking it's soccer that will compete with Ao Ashi.

I'm going in this is Squid Game in a soccer setting. I liked the first episode more than I expected, though I don't know how the whole "be selfish" shtick will last. How can they even seemingly play a team game (I think the OP showed something like that) with selfish forwards?

Actually, the whole selfish striker thing is the only remotely tenuous connection to real soccer in the entire premise (or execution) - though for some reason the mangaka decided to create a fictitious French striker to illustrate it. There in an element of truth to it, but Blue Lock's take on it is comically simplistic.

In order for this to have any chance whatsoever to work for me, I have to divorce myself from the idea that it's a sports anime at all, much less a soccer one. Because it isn't.

Ego said the Japan team has good teamwork but hasn't won yet. How will developing a selfish striker be useful in that team? Maybe there's more to it than that so I'm intrigued but the premise definitely is comically simplistic.

Best to just take this as like a survival game anime but using soccer. The players already got physical since it wasn't mentioned in the rules that you cannot do that. So anything goes just to reach the top like how a survival game is.

Its not they hasn't won, but they never come out as World Cup champion. Ego firmly believe the reason behind it is because they lack of capable strikers as he implied Japan being regular in World Cup meant producing good defender, midfielder and goalkeeper are easy; to became champion there's need of a super striker, selfish ones.

I think fictional player (Noa) existence is writer bias to France (MC is France fans) to solve 'issue' on how his favorite team have no notable strikers but midfielder (Zidane) for manga about strikers.

Yeah probably should have added World Cup. But that's what I meant, they haven't won the World Cup yet. So with a team with good teamwork, will a powerful but selfish striker be the thing they need to get the win?

The Japanese mens team has never been remotely close to winning the World Cup, and no striker - “selfish” or otherwise - would change that. They simply haven’t been close to good enough.
