Fans of Blue Lock might not be impressed with the current developments in the chapter. In light of the celebrations of the Golden Week in Japan, most companies and their employees are taking a break from their regular work. Thus, Blue Lock Chapter 172 is also given a break this week. So, two weeks later, the newest chapter will deal with a one-on-one between Yoichi Isagi and his counterpart Lavinho. Here are all the things you need to know about the chapter and the break.
In the following storyline, Isagi will come to notice that he is on the same page as Lavinho in the game. Both of them need at least two goals to outrank the other players who are to join the U-20 final team.
Blue Lock Chapter 172: What Will Happen Next?
The title of the next chapter of Blue Lock is “True Motives, and Inmost Thoughts.” Since Japan is celebrating the Golden Week for the next couple of days, the newest chapter is on break. In the same chain, the plot leaks of the chapter are also put to a halt. So, the next outing will focus on Isagi and Lavinho’s challenge. Both of them wish to secure a position in the regulars at the U-20 this year.
And the entire selection system depends on the number of goals a player has secured. Since Isagi has none, his eye is on the next match. Blue Lock Chapter 172 will look at how the audience is engaging with the Blue Lock players. Being the shining stars of the hour, they would certainly have huge fan followings outside of the building too.
Previous Chapter Recap!
Chapter 171 of Blue Lock starts with Isagi thinking that even though his team won the first match, he cannot celebrate just yet. In the next match, he would want the victory to come with his own goal. Later on, the players also came to know that most of the Blue Lock facility was not under the surveillance of cameras. Except for washrooms and bedrooms, their talks in the lounge were on the broadcast.
Meanwhile, Lavinho was not impressed by the way in which things had been going. He wanted to be one of the forwards in the next game. This was when Yukimiya Kenyu entered the room. He told Isagi not to expect everyone to be in favor of his ideals. The world of soccer was no longer on the righteous field. The chapter came to an end by pitching Isagi and Lavinho in a one-on-one.
