Blue Lock Episode 1: A Quick Recap
Football teams Ichinan and Matsukaze Kokuo competes in the Saitama prefecture tournament so that they could get into the finals. Matsukaze has already scored 1, while Ichinan still struggles to score at least a single goal. Ichinan’s striker Yoichi Isagi manages to pass the ball to players of his team, but coming closer to the goal, he loses the game to Ryosuke Kira, the strongest player of the opponent team.
Reaching home, Isagi finds an invitation from the Japan Football Union. The next day, while going to the location, he is accompanied by Ryosuke Kira. Later, the duo learns that the Union has invited all the best players from Japan. The players meet the coach, Jinpachi Ego, who tells them he intends to make only one best striker out of the 300 players present. He continues by saying that the last man standing will be the best striker in the world and will win the World Cup for Japan.
After that, he told them about the Blue Lock technique. Initially, the players found the entire plan a scam and a waste of time, but Jinpachi convinces them and starts the training session. He also gave them uniforms with ranks based on their abilities, but they can be changed based on their performance in the training session.
