It took two weeks for the last outing to release in the Weekly Shonen Magazine. While that was a voluntary break from the side of the makers, this week’s break seeks a different reason. With the Christmas and New Year break around the corner, many manga and anime are going on weekly breaks. Thus, Blue Lock Chapter 157 will also release after the two-week cap. However, the pause is worth the wait since an incredible match is lined-up for the next outing. So, here is everything to know about the latest chapter.
The 157th chapter will focus on a new player from the Bastard Munchen Club. It is already established that he is not here just to compete. Instead, he seeks compliance from the Blue Lock players. In this case, how will Isagi and the rest of the players cope with the brutal players?
Blue Lock Chapter 157: Plot Details!
The next chapter of Blue Lock is titled “Kaiser.” The crux of the new chapter was established in the last chapter itself. Kaiser is one of the players from the German Club Bastards. In the last zone of the first training round, he was the one who shot down Isagi’s goal to put up his own. But this demeanor did not stop even after he got the point. After securing the goal, he stepped ahead and asked Isagi to kneel in front of him. Thus, it is already clear how the German players plan to treat the Blue Lock members.
As suggested by the title, it is most likely that the next training round will be a full-length match. Led by Isagi and Kaiser, the two teams will collide head-on. Being the first match against the Bastards, it is most likely that the Blue Locks will lose this one by a large margin. This defeat will be a driving force for them to get better at the game.
Previous Chapter Recap!
The 156th chapter of Blue Lock opened with Ego taking his leave after all the introductions. Noel Noa came to the players and left the field right away. On the ground, the clock began to count from ten. The players of the German Environment understood that a match was about to commence. When the sprint race began, the Kunigami took off like a beast. Isagi was shocked to see how much the boy had improved his skills.
The second zone of the sprint was a climbing dash. With each progressing zone, the players of Blue Lock could not wrap their heads around how the German players were so polished, being the same age as them. With the final Zone, all the players were weary and filled with insecurity. Isagi Yoichi tried to talk to Kaiser, but all he got as a response was the word ‘kneel.’ On this note, the chapter came to an end.
