Where can you watch the upcoming episode? Keep reading to find out the details!
What Is The Blue Lock Regimen In This Sports Anime Series?
The Blue Lock series is set in 2018 when the Japanese national football team finishes in 16th place in the FIFA World Cup. To compensate for the loss and create a better team, the Japanese Football Union hires a renowned Football star Ego Jinpachi. His master wishes to lead the Japanese team to the ultimate stardom with the help of a distinct training regimen known as Blue Lock.
As per the rules, the ones that fail the Blue Lock regimen won’t ever be allowed to represent Japan in national games. In comes Yoichi Isagi, an unknown high school football player who isn’t really aware of his playing style. He decides to join the program in order to become the best football player in the world. Will he successfully complete the training? Or will his dreams go down the drain? Fans can find out the rest of his story by watching the anime series.
What Was Blue Lock Episode 1 About?
In Episode 1, fans saw Yoichi’s initial steps that will eventually help him transition into the most egotistical football player. He embraces his ego in the regimen going as far as eliminating his friend just to increase his ranking. Ego’s words inspire him to perform his best regardless of whether he has to crush others’ dreams along the way.
So, what will Episode 2 be about? Blue Lock Episode 2 will most likely start with Ryosuke’s reaction after he is betrayed by Yoichi in Episode 1. As per Anime Senpai, Ryosuke wanted to prove that Ego’s experiment was a madman’s dream and was beyond scalable. However, he was proven wrong in the initial few minutes after the program started and he was eliminated by Yoichi. He surely will have some resentment towards Yoichi given how his dream of playing for Japan won’t be possible anymore.
Where Can You Watch Blue Lock Season 1 Episode 2?
The upcoming episode will also provide fans with some more insight into the teammates’ lives and their rivals as well. Episode 1 barely provided any information about other players that stay in room Z. So, it will mostly be dedicated to character development. Moreover, Yoichi might also face some real obstacles while inside the Blue Lock program. The game of tag that the team played in room Z was just a small test by Ego. So, real challenges haven’t even started yet. And fans will see this unfold in the upcoming episodes.
Fans can watch the upcoming episode on Crunchyroll on October 15, 2022.
