The second selection just started and Yoichi faces new challenges with the first stage being a solo shooting training and the second stage back with the battle royale system where if you lose, you die… or leave Blue Lock which is the same for sports anime. He, Bachira, and Nagi team up to face the top 3 players in Blue Lock, have they evolved enough in the first selection to beat the Blue Lock elite?
The top 3
So team Yoichi (white) and team Itoshi Rin (red) will face each other to steal a player from the next team, what could go wrong? The match starts well for Team White. Bachira dribbles to the arc and passes to Nnagi who passes to Yoichi in perfect sync to the first goal. Who would think Nagi and Bachira would make such a good team?
The ball starts being controlled by Team Red. The glam player Aryu scores another goal for Team Red. But our Bachira doesn’t give up. He is giving his all and he tries to face the scaredy cat Tokimitsu Aoshi who is just panicking in the field… and fails. Tokimutsu plays like a scared soccer and he runs and panics all the way up, to the arc. Passes Yoichi who feels like a stampede went through him.
Tokimitsu even he scores a goal and now we are losing 3-1, this is not looking well for these kids in Team White. Yoichi starts to feel the difference in ability between him and the top 3. But Nagi and Bachira are all fired up, not a single gram of doubt in their veins.
Bachira, the MVP?
Nagi elaborates on a plan to win against the top 3, let’s see how it goes. They form a triangle to mark the 3 rival players until they create a goal chance for themselves. Yoichi’s mission is to smell the goal and score it but this Itoshi Rin is one step ahead of him every time.
Bachira is fast to read the situation and change the plan passing the ball to Nagi who gives us a goal.
Itoshi Rin is fast to take revenge and attacks but Yoichi is waking up, he defended very well but now, Team Red has a corner kick. Itoshi Rin will kick it and what do you think? Of course, he scored an Olympic goal from there. Team Red only needs one more goal to win against Team White.
Yoichi is desperate to create a chance but Rin is there to stop him, he quickly steals the ball from Yoichi who was playing in Rin’s hand all this time. Before they could even blink, Team Red scores the 5th goal and win the right to steal someone from Team White. Bechara is chosen to go with Team Red. He is like he is hurt but he is not, being all like “I won’t wait for you, Yoichi”
