Synopsis: "During the 2018 World Cup, Japan's football team is eliminated in the round of 16... This new failure prompts the Japanese Football Union to found the "Blue Lock": a revolutionary training centre bringing together the 300 best high school strikers in the country. The aim of the Blue Lock's coach, Jinpachi Ego, is clear: to detect the single striker who will crush all his rivals by his talent and his hyper-individualism! For Yoichi Isagi, a bubbling player still unknown, there is no alternative... If he wants to survive the highly selective programme that awaits him, he will have to abandon the collective game and transcend himself to become the ultimate striker!"
