Abilities Nagi Seishiro
- Creative Midfielder The creative midfielders midfielders that have the ability to provide scoring opportunities for their team even when it seems not likely. They typically have excellent ball control, passing skills as well as movement, and are equipped with the ability to see and skills.
Nagi’s flawless ball control, fluid moves, and technical abilities can give life to the most difficult or depressing plays. Nagi has been the sole player to score some of the most bizarre goal within Blue Lock due to this ability and continues to grow into a nimble player.
Perfect ball control:
In football, being in control of your ball can be of paramount importance to any level of player. Being able to manage an unbalanced bouncing ball swiftly and efficiently allows the player who is handling the ball an advantage immediately. The first contact is often crucial to the success or failure in the majority of situations throughout the game. Nagi has a remarkable ball control and displays this on a regular basis through traps he sets up and scoring with close precision to pin-point. Nagi is consistently scoring high-quality shots, particularly in difficult situations, especially under pressure from tough opponents.
One of his greatest accomplishments was when he executed an imitation volley. The ability to control the ball is equalled by Itoshi Rin as well as Tabito Karasu, and is among the rare things which can’t be explained away by Rin’s reasoning. Because of his natural ability of controlling the ball using his physical body Nagi has a gifted talent. He is one of the best athletes of the Blue Lock despite only having just recently begun playing football prior to the beginning of the start of the program.
First Touch Pass
With his incredible ball handling, Nagi is able to utilize his first strike to make an imaginative pass to teammates. Nagi often thinks of innovative ways to lay off the ball, whether by putting his hands on the heel, side or tip of the foot. What is what makes Nagi an incredibly creative person is that he can transform any type of pass into a possible attack. Whatever the nature or characteristics of the pass given, he is able to pass the ball with ease into a danger space. This ability has been proven many times, but most notable was when he controlled Isagi’s tricky pass in the game with the Japan U-20 team, with his heels to throw the ball to a rumbling Isagi to pass it above the defense of U-20.
Prior to Blue Lock, Nagi has had incredible trapping skills and was able to catch the phone in mid-air while leaping down a flight of steps. This feat was remarkable enough that Reo immediately recognized his aptitude for football and chose to make Nagi his teammate. Nagi can trap using his entire bodyand with incredible efficiency, continually trying to transform the worst situation into something positive. Nagi has successfully trapped the ball with his feet as well as his heels, or even behind, showing the potential of trapping. Nagi is able to trap almost anything and often utilizes his trapping skills to manipulate and confuse his opponents while running down the field. He then combines this with his ability to spatially position himself at the ideal position that allows for incredible traps and follow-up shots.
- Creative Trap If Nagi is attempting to play the ball with a defender in the background and a defender behind him, he could use his first strike to flip the ball over their shoulders and then swerve over them. Isagi described this as a trap that creates that blows the life out of the game.
- Black Hole Trap: Alternately, if Nagi isn’t under pressure from his opponent, he could use an absorbent trap, which catches the ball mid-air and stopping its momentum. This gives him enough time and room to prepare his next move.
- Trap Shot It is the most used technique and is often used during his games. Nagi begins by performing an attempt to trap the ball, regardless of whether it’s in motion or not. Then, he stops the speed and momentum of the ball. This means it is able to manipulate the ball, and then hit it with a precise strike which flies through any defenses of the opponent team and score a simple point. Nagi’s most spectacular trap shot can be seen at his Japan National Representative match, in which the ball falls out of the sky, and Nagi is followed by a variety of players. Nagi is able to control the ball, pretending to shoot it, but actually he is taking it in, then returning it back onto his dominant foot. He makes use of the foot that is not dominant to to lift the ball, giving the ball some air time and then he makes an explosive jump turn and then shoots it between the defenders with a tremendous force.

2-Stage Fake Volley shot:
It was first used during the match of Nagi’s Team White vs. Rin’s Team Red, when Nagi was forced to score and proved his worth in such a competitive game. Nagi begins by preparing the shot with a high-powered power for an incoming pass, but at the end of the second, he changes the angle of the shot in order to cause the ball to spin into the air. The speed at which the ball spins causes it to float which allows Nagi to follow-up by firing a shot that was high-powered. Rin himself was unable to anticipate or counter the shot, and it was enough to make him consider taking a serious approach. Anri at first seeing it , described the move as miraculous. Ego said that it could be a possibility due to Flow State.
