Blue Lock is a sports anime that revolves around a program aimed at selecting Japan's best striker, and only the best 300 forwards get a chance to participate in it. As the program progresses, it becomes increasingly apparent that each player has a unique weapon that they use to win matches. In this blog post, we will look at the individual weapons that each character in Blue Lock anime uses.
Isagi's weapon is spatial awareness, which he uses to analyze the entire field of play. Isagi has a vast understanding of the game, including his opponents and teammates' weapons. Based on this understanding, he can make accurate predictions as to the flow of the game. These premonitions then allow him to envision an ideal play mid-game and execute it. Isagi's spatial awareness is among the highest in Blue Lock, often rivaling and sometimes surpassing other player's own visions, such as Niko and Rin.
Nagi has exceptional ball control, and he demonstrates it constantly by setting up traps and scoring with near pin-point accuracy. He constantly scores high-level shots, especially in unfavorable positions, when under pressure from tough opponents. One of his most impressive feats is when he performed a fake volley shot. His ability to control the ball is only rivaled by Itoshi Rin and Tabito Karasu and is one of the few things that escapes Rin's logic. Nagi is a truly prodigal talent, being one of the top players in Blue Lock despite only having recently started playing football shortly before the program. After undergoing analysis by Chris Prince, Nagi understands the fundamentals of his ball control and has become more refined.
Shoei Baro's main method of scoring is his powerful and accurate shot from a position near the middle of the goal. Baro can target the top right corner with incredible reliability, being almost guaranteed to score within a specific area of the goal (29 meters, near the middle). Baro has the ability to create the space for his own shots by charging through an opponent's defense and into a range for his middle shot. He has multiple attributes and techniques which contribute to his overall charging ability. Baro was able to charge through two of the Iron Wall Quartet, while holding them back, to steal a goal.
Reo Mikage is very skilled at all aspects of the sport despite not being involved in soccer from a very young age. He has excellent passing, shooting, dribbling, and ball control capabilities (among other skills). He is a well-rounded and excellent player, being considered as a 'Jack of All Trades'. On many occasions, it has been stated that if most people in Blue Lock have low skill levels in some of their stats and extremely high skill levels in other areas, then Reo has nearly perfect stats across the board. Using his all-rounder skills, excellent soccer abilities and sense, and his 99/100 stats across all his various skills, Reo is able to emulate the abilities that other players have demonstrated.
Chigiri has naturally strong leg muscles and expert footwork, which enables him to run down the field at incredible speeds. Chigiri is generally considered to be the fastest player in Blue Lock, and only players with immense speed, like Ryusei Shidou, Eita Otoya, and Zantetsu Tsurugi can compete with him. While his speed is rivaled by a handful of players, as of yet, nobody has been able to beat him in a direct contest of speed.
Rensuke Kunigami's weapon is his exceptional shooting prowess, which makes him a deadly forward on the field. With his left leg, he can deliver a near pinpoint power shot, scoring incredibly powerful goals within a range of 28 meters. Kunigami's knuckle shot is even more formidable, allowing him to kill the spin of the ball and curve it from almost 40 meters away. Additionally, his mid-range power shot with his right foot is almost effortless, enabling him to push past defenders and score with ease.
In conclusion, each character in Blue Lock has a unique weapon that they use to dominate the game. Whether it's spatial awareness, perfect ball control, skills, dexterity, or immense speed, these players bring their individual strengths to the field, making Blue Lock a thrilling and competitive anime to watch. As the program progresses and the players become more refined, it will be exciting to see how they continue to develop and utilize their weapons to become the ultimate striker. If you're a fan of sports anime, especially soccer, then Blue Lock is definitely a must-watch series.
