Blue Lock (ブルーロック, Burū Rokku) is a shounen sports manga written by Muneyuki Kaneshiro and illustrated by Yusuke Nomura. It is currently being serialized in the Weekly Shounen Magazine.

Synopsis

The story begins with Japan’s elimination from the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which prompts the Japanese Football Union to start a program scouting high school players who will begin training in preparation for the 2022 Cup. Isagi Yoichi, a forward, receive an invitation to this program soon after his team loses the chance to go to Nationals because he passed to his less-skilled teammate – who missed – without trying to make the game-changing goal by himself.

Their coach will be Ego Jinpachi, who intends to “destroy Japanese loser football” by introducing a radical new training regimen: isolate 300 young forwards in a prison-like institution called “Blue Lock” and put them through rigorous training aimed at creating “the world’s greatest egotist striker.”
