The PV is led by character/coach Jinpachi Ego (CV: Hiroshi Kamiya) who introduces the aspiring football athletes into the cutthroat world of the Blue Lock Project.


The Blue Lock Project is a plan to groom young athletes into professional stardom by making them undergo a regimen designed to create the world's greatest egotist striker. The catch is that those who fail the project will never again be permitted to represent Japan.
