Blue Lock, Volume 9
After a disastrous defeat at the 2018 World Cup, Japan's team struggles to regroup. But what's missing? An absolute Ace Striker, who can guide them to the win. The Football Association is hell-bent on creating a striker who hungers for goals and thirsts for victory, and who can be the decisive instrument in turning around a losing match...and to do so, they've gathered 300 of Japan's best and brightest youth players. Who will emerge to lead the team...and will they be able to out-muscle and out-ego everyone who stands in their way?
Thanks to Barou's awakening, Isagi's team manages to defeat the trio of Kunigami, Chigiri, and Reo. And the one that Isagi chooses to steal is... The new four-man team sets out for a rematch against the Top Three and Bachira. Will the "monster" that fuels Isagi's ego be enough to take down the prodigy striker Rin Itoshi?!
