The anime adaptation for Blue Lock has been announced for 2022. It is based on the football manga series written by Muneyuki Kaneshiro and illustrated by Yusuke Nomura in the Shonen Magazine Comics.
Eight Bit (8bit) is in charge of the animation production with Tetsuaki Watanabe as director, Shunsuke Ishikawa as co-director, Taku Kishimoto as series composer, Kenji Tanae and Kento Toya as character designers and chief animation directors, and music by Jun☆Murayama.
The main cast will include Kazuki Ura as Yoichi Isagi, Tasuku Kaito as Meguru Bachira, Yūki Ono as Rensuke Kunigami, and Sōma Saitō as Hyōma Chigiri.
Bandai Namco Arts describes the series as:
You can’t be the number one striker in the world unless you’re the number one egotist in the world. In order to cultivate a striker who can lead Japan to victory in the World Cup, the Japan Football Union devises a plan. They call it the “Blue Lock Project.” Three hundred high school students are gathered, all of them forwards. Who will be the one striker born from the sacrifice of 299 soccer-centered lives, the one who will revolutionize Japanese soccer? The most passionate, intense soccer anime in history is about to begin.
