Blue Lock Synopsis

The story begins with the departure of the Japanese national team from the 2018 FIFA World Cup and prompts the Japanese Football Union to start a training program to prepare a team of students who will take part in the 2022 World Cup. Isagi Yoichi, a striker, receives an invitation to join this program shortly after his team missed an opportunity to compete in Nationals as he passes the ball on to his less skilled teammate, who obviously missed the shot himself.

His coach will be Ego Jinpachi, who intends to put an end to the "weak Japan in football" idea by adopting a radically new training program: isolating and subjecting 300 young strikers in a prison-like facility called the Blue Lock they undergo rigorous training that produces "the greatest, most talented and selfish striker in the world".
