One of the most anticipated and frequently asked questions of the Blue Lock series is whether or not the protagonist, Isagi Yoichi, will become the best striker. Most sports anime center around one theme: The Main Character is actually the strongest amongst them all, but he just really is supposed to suck at first for some character development to start. In Blue Lock, however, it is still uncertain to this point as to whether or not Yoichi will become the best striker of the series.
The whole “I’m the main character, so I get the spotlight” has been a trend among many of the sports anime for the past years it has been famous, however, somehow, Blue Lock feels different. There is so much to unpack when it comes to the outrageousness of this series. The characters, the plot, and even the concept of the whole show are different. It feels as though the authors of the manga want the readers to look into the perspective of someone who is strong but will still fail in the end.
Yoichi is strong. In fact, he has every characteristic a budding main character of a sports anime should have. He is resilient and hard-working, and he knows that he has to improve in order to surpass his peers. However, there are many characters in the blue lock series who are just way stronger than he is. Yoichi has worked his way to the top, but those at the top will remain there unless there is an external force that forces them to move.
Isagi’s current state may be stronger than what he used to be, but it’s definitely not enough to topple those already standing atop the pyramid. Other than his strength, Isagi Yoichi needs to improve many other things to become the best striker Japan has hoped for, but it does not mean he does not have the shot to make it to the top.
