After losing the World Cup, the Japan Football Union is launching a program to scout high school players with high potential who will begin training for the 2022 Cup.
Their coach, Ego Jinpachi, intends to profoundly change the Japanese way of playing by introducing a radical new training regime: isolating 300 young strikers in a prison-like institution called Blue Lock and subjecting them to rigorous training aimed at creating "the world's greatest selfish striker."
Among these teenagers, we follow the journey of Isagi Youichi, a ball prodigy, who receives an invitation to this program.
