There were several clues about the plot of Blue Lock Season 2 in the trailer. We have gathered all the information about that right here.
Blue Lock Season 2: Trailer Breakdown
Well, it will be unfair to call the clip a ‘trailer.’ The 16-second video was a small hint towards the two new ventures of the series. The video opens with Isagi’s view claiming that this was his time to shine. He tells himself that he is a masterclass striker and that there is no one to beat him at this game.
However, in the next scene, we see the entry of Ego Jinpachi. This man seems to have strict plans for the people who think highly of themselves. With this, the banner of the new season presents itself in the frame. But the trailer of the new movie is yet to hit the screens this time.
A day after the first season ended, the official website of Blue Lock announced two new projects in line. These were Blue Lock Season 2 and a new movie. The title of the film venture will be ‘Blue Lock Episode Nagi.’ Popular opinion suggests that Nagi’s Special will be a canon and will not be a part of the bigger universe. All in all, the second season has been green-lit by Studio Eight Bit. Along with this, the movie project will also be animated by the same company. However, Netflix is yet to join hands with the makers for another successful run.
All About ‘Blue Lock Episode Nagi’
Based on the spin-off manga of the same name, Blue Lock Episode Nagi has seen as much popularity as the original manga. The text by the same author came out in June 2022, releasing two volumes so far. The plot is an ongoing one that begins with the origin story of Nagi and his journey to the Blue Lock playgrounds.
Many phases of the young boy’s life take place in this story. Now, it is completely based upon the makers as to which acts they will pick up in the movie. But there is buzz that suggests that the movie will be a canon version. This means that it will not be related to the current happenings of the anime and its sequel!
What Will Happen In Season 2?
After completing the Second Selection Arc in the first season, the next act is the ‘Third Selection Storyline.’ As there are 24 episodes for a season, there will be more room for the U-20 arc after this. In this, the game between Blue Lock XI and Japan U-20 will take up most of the space in Blue Lock Season 2. But before this, the final eleven players are to be selected for the next match.
Ego Jinpachi will set a test to select players before the new match. In the final act of the last season, 35 of the remaining players were left in the Blue Lock facility. Out of these, a lot will be eliminated and thrown out. Two of the strongest players, Rin Itoshi and his brother, Sae Itoshi, will join the course as the main players. This match will make and break careers for the rest of the years for these players.
