Things You Should Know About Blue Lock

  1. Blue Lock has proven to be the most exciting and successful, or at the very least one of, modern sports manga–after Haikyuu.

2. Another plot difference between Blue Lock and Haikyuu in how they tell sports-themed stories is the scope. The latter does eventually undergo a time-skip in the manga where we see a core of the main cast playing professionally in Japan.

3. Given the quality in which it portrays the sport through manga, this should easily prove to be an addictive read for manga/anime fans and of the sport itself. It’s heavily fictionalized and isn’t grounded in reality like the revered Haikyuu.

4. Perhaps that’s for the best, and given the story so far in Blue Lock, it could be able to tell a complete, satisfying story in just over 300 chapters.
