The official plot details of Blue Lock Chapter 161 hint towards the most interesting outcome of the ongoing match. Without spoiling the chapter in the first two lines, let us take a look at how the match has been so far. So, Isagi is curious to know how Bachira had improved so much in a matter of ten days. It turns out that it was Lavinho who passed him the secret of the Ginga technique. Thus, using the Ginga X Monster attacks, he was able to withstand the experienced Bastard players.
But for the next match, Kunigami will be the one coming to him. Unlike the rest of his team, he is not someone who would play in a group. Instead, Kunigami preferred playing with individuality. Now, it will be interesting to see how this affects Bachira and Blue Lock’s overall game. Here is everything to know about the latest chapter.
Blue Lock Chapter 161: Plot Details!
No matter how strong or durable Bachira had made his technique, there will still be players who are way stronger than him. This was evident from the final panel of the chapter that introduced Kunigami Resuke. So, the title of the 161st chapter is “Bee Shot.” It will open with the Kunigami Vs. Bachira dance. The Blue Lock warrior will be surprised to see that his opponent will so easily take the lead even in the unique technique that he was using. As he takes over the ball, Bachira will claim that muscles alone are not enough for gameplay. Next up will be the Grim and Gesner Vs. Bachira match.
Once again, Bachira will take the lead by surpassing the two of them and scoring a goal. Isagi will be baffled to see such a freestyle attack, just like a floating boat. This made him think about the instructions that Ego had given him. Now, if he wanted to get into the team, he would have to play with the boys like a team. And if he chose to go in the other direction, it would only make him the lone player like Kunigami. Blue Lock Chapter 161 will end with Kaiser announcing that he would be going for the death penalty in order to win the game.
A Quick Recap!
The 160th chapter of Blue Lock started with the blasting introduction of Bachira Meguru. Isagi also wondered how his peer was able to secure a position in the regular in just ten days. The story cuts into a flashback sequence. Ten days before coming to the Blue Lock facility, some of the players met with U-20 players. One of them was Lavinho, who was quite arrogant about his gameplay despite being in the same line as Noel Noa. In an arrogant demeanor, he told the players that there was a word in Brazil spelled as ‘Ginga.’ The word essentially meant a mixture of art forms such as dance and martial arts.
Each Brazilian player he knew had a persona of an animal. For Lavinho, he followed the Butterfly style to excel in the match. And so, Bachira was the only one who decided to take his words seriously. In a matter of ten days, the boy practiced meditation training and physical training to master the ‘Monster’ persona. Isagi was quick to notice that Bachira was fusing the monster technique with what he already knew. Thus came the title “Ginga X Monster.”
