Japan’s victory against Germany was proof of Blue Lock. Let’s prove this theory below.
Blue Lock tells the story of High school soccer players from all around Japan who come together for a challenging project that aims to produce the world’s best and most egotistical striker. Japan winning the World Cup and the manner Blue Lock is portrayed lead us to conclude that they are related. Let’s check to see whether our theory is even true.
Blue Lock World Cup Theory
Japan’s World Cup match versus Germany had a difficult first half, but they improved by switching up their approach in the second half. Ritsu Doan and Takuma Asano scored goals for Japan later in the game, within eight minutes of one another, proving that the tactic had been successful. It was an important but unexpected outcome, and Japanese soccer fans appeared to experience it as a real rebirth.
Following Samurai Blue’s victory, Blue Lock supporters in Japan and beyond expressed their feelings. It is clear that watching Japan achieve such a significant victory thanks to two strikers’ superb acts. However, their acts bring back the memory of Blue Lock’s hopes and anticipation.
Blue Lock’s official account and artist have tweeted about the match. Also, Yusuke Nomura dedicates his artwork to the achievement of the Japanese team. According to the official Blue Lock Twitter account, both “Japan” and “Blue Lock” were trending on Twitter. Isn’t it enough reason to reveal the link between Blue Lock and Japan’s victory?
Fans of Blue Lock may be reminded as Japan gets ready to compete for the top slot at the World Cup of the ability of art to inspire and change the future. Who knows, maybe Blue Lock gave the Japanese soccer squad the inspiration to achieve the seemingly unattainable.
The Japanese Men’s National Soccer Team and Blue Lock
Despite the incredible performance of the Japanese men’s national soccer team in the World Cup tournament, their triumph and eventual fall were prophesied in the popular soccer-related anime Blue Lock months before the game began.
For the past 25 years, Japan has never failed to advance to the FIFA World Cup. For a team that competes with national soccer powerhouses like Brazil and England, this is an outstanding accomplishment. Additionally, Japan has routinely advanced to the second round of the competition, which is a remarkable accomplishment. Few, though, thought that Japan would be able to get past the first round of this year’s competition when the matches were made public.
Japan faced out against Spain and Germany as well as Costa Rica, a young squad that never backs down from a challenge. Against all expectations, Japan proved to be a real “giant killer,” defeating Germany and Spain to advance to the next round.
The team had failed to reach the quarterfinals, but it was starting to appear like it may do so going into the second round against a beatable Australia. Unfortunately, despite making a heroic attempt, Japan was unable to defeat Australia in normal play, overtime, and the shootout. Its Cinderella reign was almost immediately over.
The loss may have saddened the Japanese people, but Jinpachi’s Ego of Blue Lock most surely wasn’t. In reality, he foresaw Japan’s defeat in the pilot of the anime. Unless Japan was able to create a striker of the caliber of Messi or Ronaldo, according to Ego’s analysis, it was improbable that it would be difficult for the team to win the competition.
In fact, this was the motivation for Ego and his colleague Anri Teieri’s creation of the Blue Lock project, which was designed to unearth Neymar, Kane, or Mbappe by first identifying Japan’s most potential strikers.
Japanese Soccer Dominance According To Blue Lock’s Theory
Ego’s thesis holds that the Japanese men’s national soccer team is strong and efficient enough to be the best team in the world. They are among the top in the sport in terms of total team performance.
Blue Lock’s Ego hypothesizes that this is due to Japanese cultural ideals, prioritizing the group over the person and encouraging people to behave in the collective’s best interests. This correlates to the team doing better than any other team in the world at passing, rotating, and supporting one another.
As a result, they ought to triumph over inferior opposition and occasionally pull off surprises. The World Cup performance this year supported the Ego’s viewpoint. Ego contends that despite its advantages, Japan has frequently failed to advance, particularly when playing superior teams.
Furthermore, in the anime, Ego observes that Japan’s World Cup defeat was caused by the absence of a player with enough dignity to take a shot when others could not. He contends that all of the top attackers, those who have helped their teams win World Cups, are arrogant, self-centered individuals who only consider their own interests when it counts most.
Ego would counter that Japan’s failure to score against Australia was a glaring demonstration of this notion. Ego might contend that a defeat also shows the necessity of Blue Lock.
And then, last year, Japan finally won the World Cup thanks to the invention of the Blue Lock. Everything works out for Ego, and the players are intrigued by his statements.
So, if we wind up with this theory, we would say Blue Lock was created because Japan lost the World Cup against Australia. However, the other objective of its creation was to make sure Japan’s victory in the coming year’s World Cup. And that’s exactly what happened. Japan won against Germany in the last World Cup and proved that it physically implemented the Blue Lock project.
