Will there be an Anime Adaptation of Blue Lock?
Blue Lock is basically a Japanese Manga series written and illustrated by Muneyuki Kaneshiro and Yusuke Nomura. Since August 2018 this series has been serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine. This series is definitely becoming an animation series which is quite sentimental and a bit of an egoistic series started when the National soccer team of Japan reportedly crashed out of the 2018 World Cup.
After this incident, the Japan Football Union appointed a mysterious man named Ego Jinpachi to improve the world cup performance of Japan National Soccer team.
Ego Jinpachi has a clear and straightforward plan of bringing 300 U-18 soccer players in the newly created Blue Lock facility and creating the best and top rating striker in the World through a rigorous and brutal training regimen.
He has a clear plan in his mind that only one player out of 300 is allowed to be Japan’s next national striker and the other 299 players will be out of the game and will not be allowed to represent Japan’s national team. And the one who will represent Japan’s national team will be Yoichi Isagi.
Yoichi Isagi is a boy who has come from a heartbreaking loss at the National High School Football Qualifiers because he passed a shot to his teammate instead of taking it himself.

Why is the Blue Lock anime adaptation taking time? And what Is The Status Of Manga?
As you may be familiar with the fact that a number of MAPPA Studio workers are leaving the studio because of adverse working conditions.
In the list of leaving workers the director of the famous animation series Jujutsu Kaisen has also left the Studio. And hence due to this there is a lack of animators in Studio which is obviously creating a ruckus, and this is the main reason behind the long delay and time expansion of a lot of series including Blue Lock.
The Blue Lock manga is still ongoing in which 12 volumes have been released. Manga series has also had a weekly release in Shonen Magazine and Kodansha since August 2018 without any delay.
