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 Football Association 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?
This story is amazing! At first I was wierded out by the survival concept, but that quickly changed. This story is so much more than a traditional sports manga, it's like if the characters were going to soccer training in Ender's Game mixed with the Hunger Games. Everything is high intensity. The characters are good and drawn in a way that resemble characters from other mangas, but I love it. I can't wait to finish the series!!
The concept is so great- like ego pitched 300 soccer players against each other for the sole purpose of finding the best player. What's even more intense about the plot is that all 300 high school students play the same position. That's the competitive aspect of this manga. The thing is when they fail a task they're given in regards to soccer they won't be able to attempt a national level or become pro. Their soccer career is over once they're out. All 300 students are betting their lives upon entering Blue Lock. The art style is sooo good and detailed- it does the incredible plot justice. The characters are all very unique and have something stand out about all of them, some more than others. But that is to be expected when they're Japans best highschool strikers.
