The match against Team V continues. Nagi, Reo, and Zantetsu had full control of the ball as it was expected. That would demoralize anyone but not Bachira, the possessed boy surely had seen it worse, he’s not scared, Team V is scared of him! Team Z managed to turn the game from a devastating 3-0 to a tie in no time!
Kuon is eating grass, all his life choices are giving him the karma of his life. He can’t understand how Team Z is giving a good fight against the legendary Team V with just 10 people. I don’t know how he likes his sports anime but I’ve seen worse, not gonna lie.
Between Kuon who’s determined to be the only survivor of his team and Reo who wants to show his mommy and daddy he can do soccer, we have a very mentally unstable match going on here. Reo is still being marked by Raichi who won’t leave his side, ever, he is trapped but for the first time in his life, Nagi manages to take a decision and runs to Reo’s rescue. Not even Nagi understands why is are his feet running.
Zantetsu takes the ball and passes to Nagi who shoots the ball from the angle with a super acrobatic kick again. He is like “I like soccer now, soccer is fun!” in the worst timing possible for team Z for him to acquire a new liking to sports. Nobody thought nagi had this much individuality.
Raichi is the soul of the team right now, he helps Team z overcome the post-goal shock threatening their lives if they even think of not giving their all and attacking until the end.
But when Nagi takes the ball, Yoichi appears out of nowhere to block him. Chigiri then tries to shoot but he gets blocked enters Kunigami‘s goal territory, and finally, they score a goal!! Team Z is in a tie again. Yoichi takes aware of how to use his great analyzation abilities to control the field and maybe score a goal?
We get a new flashback about Kuon’s past. He forms the soccer team in his school but his teammates don’t take it seriously skipping practice and lacking ambition. After they lose their chance to go to the National Tournament, Kuon got the Blue Lock sentence, I mean invitation. So he came in a really bad mental state, and decided to win even if it meant being by himself.. or is he?
Chigiri and Zantetsu keep facing each other in terms of speed and Nagi is followed by Yoichi, who learned to read where is the weakest point in the field to pops up in it. He has our backs, guys… or not because Nagi passes him nevertheless, meters from the arc, Team Z’s lives pass before their eyes… But Kuon is there, he sacrifices himself for the team and pushes Nagi to get himself a Red Card and his opportunity of being the only survivor of Team Z taken with it. Nobody understands why. But he still used dirty tricks. So it’s free to kick time for Team V.
This is all mind games, guys but our goalkeeper knows that and he also knows this is Blue Lock, and if you are in Blue Lock, you shoot to win. Directly to the arc, and he blocks it! Nagi takes the ball in the second play and shoots for a goal too, he is facing 3 goalkeepers this time and manages to pass all of them. But Gagamaru saves the day once more. Yoichi takes the ball. This isn’t over!
