The official Twitter of Japanese company Muzzle Inc. has revealed on Tuesday that Muneyuki Kaneshiro and Yūsuke Nomura's "Blue Lock" manga franchise will be putting up an additional Pop-Up Store now in Yokohama, Japan.

The Blue Lock sports manga series written by Muneyuki Kaneshiro and illustrated by Yuusuke Nomura has been serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine since August 2018 and has been collected in 7 tankōbon volumes. Last May 17, 2021, the manga exceeded 4 million copies in circulation worldwide.
The manga follows Yoichi Isagi, a second-year student and his team's young forward who lost the opportunity to go to the national high school championships because he passed to his teammate who missed instead of shooting himself. Isagi is one of 300 U-18 strikers chosen by Jinpachi Ego, a man who was hired by the Japan Football Association after the 2018 FIFA World Cup, to guide Japan to winning the World Cup by destroying Japanese football. Ego's plan is to isolate the 300 strikers into a prison-like institution called "Blue Lock", in order to create the world's biggest "egotist"/striker, which has been lacking in Japanese football.
