Blue Lock Chapter 172 is coming back to the screens after a week-long break. The manga was on an uncalled hiatus seeking the Golden Week celebrations in Japan. But now, the story is back on track once again. In a quick recap, the previous chapter featured Isagi thinking about his stance in the matches so far. Even though his performance was commendable, he could not score the goal in his name. For this week, a new character will steal the limelight from the picture. So, here is all you need to know about the outing.
In the following chapter, Yuikimiya, a new entry in the story, will take center stage. What is more interesting to see is that he has the most influential character arcs of all the players so far.
Blue Lock Chapter 172: What Will Happen Next?
As per the leaked plot details, the title of the following chapter is “Inmost Thoughts.” The episode will begin with Yukimiya running into a photographer on the street. The man would ask him if he wanted to try modeling for his pictures. But he will refuse to seek the Japan Soccer Championship next month. Later on the same day, it is revealed that the player is suffering from multiple health problems, from vision issues to problems with his migraines.
He would ask the doctor if he did something wrong to deserve this. But the doctor will assure him that he could only hope for the best. The final scene of the chapter will take a look at his resolve to become better. Despite all the injuries and fading health problems, Yukimiya decided that he would not give up no matter what happened. Blue Lock Chapter 172 will also take a look at Isagi’s training before the match with England.
Previous Chapter Recap!
The 171st chapter of Blue Lock started with Yoichi strategizing his next move for the match. He looked at the scoreboard and realized that scoring a goal was important in order to get selected for the final U-20 team. Even though he got his team to the victory line, the goal was certainly not in his basket. Later on, the teammates discussed that along with the games, all their talks were also on national broadcasts at all times.
On the other end, Lavinho still criticized the scoring system at Blue Lock. According to the scores and the bidding number, he could not be one of the forwards in the next game. In the next scene, fans see the entry of Yukimiya Kenyu. He explained to the players that this was no longer the soccer that they used to play back then. The chapter ended with Isagi committing that Lavinho was his next target.
