Is Blue Lock Season 2 confirmed? Before answering the question let’s look at the past few years. Sports anime have become not only popular but also won the hearts of millions of watchers. Demand for sports anime rose by leaps and bounds after the release of some of the most distinguished anime like Kuroko’s basket, Haikyuu, Inazuma Eleven, Free, and so on. Haikyuu was one of the most loved sports anime in 2022, but the tables have changed now because of the release of the Blue Lock anime series.
Currently, Blue Lock is in the top 10 according to my anime list, which is an official website for fans to rate their favorite series and make them rank in the top 10. Other than Blue Lock, no other sports anime has taken the place of the top 10 ranks this month.
Fans are digging around for more information on Blue Lock Season 2 every day because they can’t wait to know what happens next. Still, it’s time to let the cat out of the bag, and I will be sharing exclusive information on Blue Lock Season 2 based on various sources from forums and news. People who do not want some spoilers may skip the “What to Expect in Blue Lock Season 2” part.
Blue Lock has two cour parts; one cour part was completed, and the second cour started airing from 7th January 2023 onwards with the release of the second cour visual key. The second cour is ongoing and will end at episode 24 (yet to be released). Hence, the news for the second season has not been revealed yet because season 1’s second cour is still ongoing.
There is no official news about Blue Lock Season 2 yet, but it has been confirmed that in December 2022, the sales of Blue Lock overtook the all-time favorites One Piece and Jujutsu kaizen. Sales and the number of stream plays are crucial factors that help to determine whether the anime will get a second season or not. Last month it was announced that 2 million copies are still in circulation, meaning they are still in demand!
Not only are the sales going strong, but even the merchandise and popularity have not dropped since its release. Even the second cour of Blue Lock has successfully captivated the hearts of many viewers. Apart from sales and popularity, manga is still ongoing, and chapters get updated weekly, which makes it predictable that there is a high chance for the release of Blue Lock Season 2. If we want the same detailed graphics and outstanding character sketches, then Kodansha would need a minimum of one year to produce a second season, as Kodansha also has other anime projects to work on.
Now the question is, when will Blue Lock Season 2 be released? Based on release dates, budget, the average time taken for production houses, and other such relevant information, we can expect to hear the news of the second season by the end of 2023 or by the summer of 2024.
The Blue Lock name is derived from the “Blue Lock Project” from the anime. The project has been intricately planned in such a way that soccer players can break free from their shackles and raise their potential to a whole new level. As the second cour is still ongoing, we think that it will end with Itoshi Rin picking Isagi Yoichi as his teammate (manga chapter 86: Pride).
In the upcoming season, the episode will begin with players getting divided among different groups of world-class players brought to the blue lock project to train them. Apart from spectacular breathtaking matches, there will be the entry of Itoshi Sae (brother of Itoshi Rin). The viewers will be on the edge of their seats when they see both brothers going against each other to become the best. On the other hand, they must also save the blue lock project from getting dissolved. No, this is not all. There will also be a wild card entry which I do not want to reveal and want the viewers to find out by themselves.
Yes, due to such overwhelming responses from the viewers and readers, it’s predictable that the chapters will be getting published promptly weekly, and right now, the second cour of anime is ongoing. Currently, there are more than 200 chapters published on their authorized website, and we expect it to continue.
As of now, no official confirmation news has been released, let alone a trailer. But the latest preview video of the second cour of Blue Lock Season One is available to watch. Make sure to bookmark the page if you want to stay on top of the news. We will give you a heads-up as soon as we get any new information on Blue Lock Season 2. We expect the release of the trailer will be close to the announcement of the release of season 2.
Currently, the production houses or the writers are not commenting or replying to any of the questions related to the release of season 2, but the fans’ unending efforts to convince them for season 2 will surely be fruitful. You can watch Blue Lock Season 1 on Crunchyroll, and once season 2 gets aired, it will be available on Crunchyroll. There are also several pirated sites on which people can watch for free. Some of the most commonly used ones are Kissanime, 9anime, Animehaven, etc.
Overall looking at all the factors, there is a 99% chance of Blue Lock getting another season, as the second season will consist of fearsome battles and a jaw-dropping plot to keep viewers stuck to their screen for hours.
