Blue Lock episode 21 Expectations: Where to watch + Release date and time

Blue Lock fandom has been set ablaze ever since Isagi lost Bachira. Although the initial plan seemed to be to retrieve Bachira, things seemed to be going haywire all over. Blue Lock Episode 21 is scheduled to air on TV Asahi at 1:30 am JST on Sunday, March 5.

In the previous episode, Isagi’s team and Itoshi’s team battled it out on the field. Although things were dire with Barou being the king to himself and Isagi trying to figure Rin out, it turned out well. Resulting in a tie of two goals each for both the teams.

  • Bachira successfully connected with the top three players, while Nagi scored an extraordinary goal. Itoshi acknowledged being fired up by their impressive performance.
  • Fans around the world can also stream the episode on Crunchyroll, although a few select countries will have access to it on Netflix instead.

Few Blue Lock Episode 21 predictions: What to expect

The headline may feel misleading. It’s more of an educated foreshadowing. Because the Manga is already out, and I have already read it. But that does not bring out the fun for me in hinting you at what lies ahead.

In Blue Lock episode 21, Itoshi Rin is expected to demonstrate his control over the field by taking on the role of the pivot and positioning his team members to create goal-scoring opportunities.

Isagi may see the huge gap between him and pro players, namely Rin

  • This will prompt Isagi to reconsider his evaluation of Rin. Seeing that Rin has everyone in control. This is in direct opposition to Isagi’s own spatial awareness. As Isagi may have to deal with the fact that players on the level of Rin have spatial awareness as a given.
  • Possibly hinting that Isagi has an ocean to cross and that the boat that he considered a cruise is only a raft. While his focus isn’t solely on scoring goals, fans may also witness him supporting his teammates in an impressive manner.
  • As seen already when Isagi assisted Nagi, and that too on multiple occasions. Although Barou being the carrier of his own will, cooperation is only exemplified with the other three in Isagi’s team. (Excluding Barou).

On the other hand, Isagi has to attempt to take control of the field to defeat Itoshi. In addition, Chigiri and Nagi have already showcased their abilities, and Barou may have some surprises up his sleeve. (He definitely does, spoiler hint).
