Preview Captions for Episode 7 “Barrels and Barrels”

The official Japanese site for the Blue Lock anime has provided the following story preview caption for Episode 7 titled “Barrels and Barrels”:

“Team Z is caught in a hopeless 12v10 situation, with their weapons and plans compromised by a betrayal. Team Z’s hard-fought battle and Kiyoshi’s sheer ego and belief in himself ignites the smoldering Chigiri. 3-4 back, the guns Chigiri had locked away and the ego he carries deep in his heart runs across the field moving the matchstick in a big way.” – Story 07, via the official website.

In the post-credits scene “Additional Time” from Episode 7, Raichi, Isagi, Igarashi, Chigiri, and Imamura argued that bread for breakfast is best; against Bachira, Lemon, Kunigami, Gagamaru, and Asahi, who prefer rice.

The two groups bicker back and forth, only for Kuon to enter the battlefield after a nice swim. Berated by both teams, Kuon admits he prefers cornflakes and milk for breakfast; Both teams finally agree that Kuon is wrong.

A short synopsis of Episode 6 “I’m Sorry”.

Episode 6 of Blue Lock was titled “I’m Sorry” and began with the team discussing their strategy for the next must-win game.

Your next opponents are Team W, led by the enigmatic Wanima Twins, who pressure Team Z with lightning-fast combinations from the start; As twins, their relationship is arguably the best seen on Blue Lock to date.

However, the twins also have a bullying side, constantly berating Chigiri, who apparently used to play outside of Blue Lock as part of their team. Chigiri becomes depressed during the game and explains how he only came to Blue Lock so he could have a legitimate reason to quit football, especially after the ACL injury from the previous year.

Team Z is off to an impressive start to the game, but Isagi thinks there’s something else wrong – not with Chigiri, but with Kuon! He confesses that he secretly planned a new strategy with Team W, which he believes will defeat Team Z without too much trouble.

Kuon announces he now plays for Team W and that it’s now 12v10; His goal is to score three goals so he can become the highest scoring player and progress through the program while eliminating Team Z completely.

The episode ends with Team W taking the lead in the game as the minutes tick by.
