(Read ‘Blue Lock’ Episode 1 Review if you have no idea what the show is about)
Who would’ve thought that Isagi Yoichi, Nagi Seishiro and Barou Shoei would end up in one team? But we already saw the outcome in the last episode ‘Devour’, where Isagi picks the King to join him after winning the two-versus-two game. However, even with two geniuses on his side, it’s not going to be easy to clear the next round since the self-centered Barou is a terrible team-player.
Titled ‘Tri-Fusion’, the most exciting bit about this episode was Kunigami, Chigiri and Reo teaming up and challenging Isagi, Nagi and Barou to go against them. While Kunigami and Chigiri are pissed with Isagi for leaving them behind, Reo fiercely holds a grudge against Nagi for not being by his side. And in the best twist, everybody differs on which player they’d like to pick if they win.
Viewers get to see the administrative side after a long time, Ego (mastermind of the ‘Blue Lock’ program) makes a fresh presentation to his bosses, promising them a ‘genius’ that would take Japanese soccer to new levels. Episode 16 was a mix of everything, there was plenty training and playing by the teen strikers and a slight glimpse into what’s going on behind the scenes with those who are in-charge of the program. The last few minutes were the most entertaining, as Isagi realizes it’s not going to be easy defeating the formidable trio that includes Reo.
