How Blue Lock and Captain Tsubasa parallel Japan’s profound win over Germany at the World Cup?
A Blue Lock character Shoei Baro states that a striker who chokes in front of the goal simply does not have what it demands to be one. Let’s discuss the storyline of the Blue Lock.

We see a new coach who trains fertile young footballers in a prison-like facility called Blue Lock. Let us tell you about a famous statement from Blue Lock’s coach Jinpachi Ego. He makes it clear that his task is to forge Japan as a team capable of winning the World Cup.
In fact, he goes on to say that Japan only needs one element to become the strongest powerhouse in football. And that is the formation of the revolutionary striker. He further adds that a revolutionary striker’s extraordinary egoism is the one thing that Japan’s football team falls short of. He addresses the players and comments that they will not become the greatest strikers in the world unless they have the ego to equal their moves.
Indeed, Tsubasa is an awe-inspiring character conceived in 1981. However, he has gone beyond the imagination of even its creator Yoichi Takahashi. Takahashi once commented that reality caught up with the manga and then transcended it. Indeed, he can say that again today after Japan’s majestic win over Germany.
