Since, we know the series began as a manga whose serialization in Kōdansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine started on August 1, 2018. However, due to some health problems faced by the author, the series went on missing at the beginning of October 2021, and the makers, therefore, begin working on the anime.

Therefore, Blue Lock anime was announced on August 12, 2021, and as per official sources, the anime adaptation of the series is expected to release this year in October, since we know anime makers like to keep releasing the arrival information a few days before the arrival date of any series, due to which the release date for Block Lock is not out yet, but it is so far expected that the anime might release in October 2022.
What to Expect from the series?
As stated earlier the anime series Block Lock is going to focus on the story of Yoichi Isagi, a striker and a high school student who joins the Blue Lock program, which is supposed to be the very strict and harsh program in which the world’s greatest strikers are created, headed by Jinpachi Ego, who wishes and has the dream of winning the world cup after Japanese national team loses from Belgium in the 16th FIFA World Cup.
Blue Lock’s training regimen follows a prison-like facility where the aspiring strikers are bounded by only one rule, if you fail, you are never permitted to represent Japan in any football match.
With these sky-rocking and harsh rules, Yoichi Isag goes on the journey to become one of the greatest footballers in the world.
Is the trailer out yet?
Well, now the makers have revealed the announcement details of the Blue Lock anime therefore at this moment a trailer is present but that is only a short preview that does not reveal very much about the upcoming adaptation.
Since the preview video was only released at the initial time of the announcement of the series, therefore a broad trailer for the anime is not yet released, but that’s not sad news since we know the series is going to arrive in October 2022, thus it is very likely that the makers will no doubt come up with the trailer of the series very shortly.
