Today, I will be talking about the characters of Blue Lock who are eliminated.
Blue Lock is a method that trims and cuts the fat in order to select the best players. When there are 300 participants in a competition that is so intense and competitive, it’s obvious someone will be eliminated.
Let’s now look at all the Blue Lock characters that were eliminated.
This post contains important spoilers.
All players from Blue Lock have been eliminated
Kira is the first to be eliminated among Blue Lock characters. To be honest, his way to elimination was quite sad. He was unable to deal with the consequences.
This also exposed his negative side and revealed what he thought about Isagi. He was quickly forgotten as a character in the series after his expulsion.
The hit you see above was actually for Isagi, which he avoided. You can see how far Isagi got!
It is unfair that Iemon was eliminated. He was never allowed to play as a striker from the beginning. He had to remain a goalkeeper. We never saw his skill!
Yes, he was a good goalkeeper but he also missed many chances. Perhaps the mangaka wanted to address us with the goal misses that Iemon didn’t make enough. He is also the one that I believe gets the least attention of all players.
This guy was going to be eliminated anyway. Kuon and other players are an insult to sportsmanship. Kuon not only sold the secrets of his entire team, but also deliberately scored goals to ensure that no one else is elected.
Although he tried to make a clever move in the final round, he was eliminated because he did not have the necessary skills to play at the nationals. What can you expect from someone who cheats?
There is very little between Naruhaya and Imamura. Imamura felt weaker than many of his teammates. He did not score a goal and he didn’t play any significant role in matches.
He was eliminated after the selection became very intense. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see the final result.
Since the beginning of the manga, I honestly had little faith in Imamura, Iemon, and Naruhaya. These three characters were not even mentioned by the mangaka, which was more than a sign they would be eliminated soon.
Surprised, Naruhaya tried to fight Isagi but was outclassed quickly in both strength and skills. That was it! After no one had selected Naruhaya, he was eliminated! This was a sad day for me!
Kunigami was ready to be a captain. Kunigami’s attitude to any situation was maturer than many players. He was also able to play against other teams… However, his skills were not enough to get him through the Blue Lock’s tough walls.
But, wait! Kunigami is an exceptional case! He is the “Dark Horse”, of the series. He was eliminated and then he was allowed to enter the Wild-Card Entry. After that, we didn’t see him again for quite some time. After many chapters, we finally saw the “New Kunigami.”
Did he not change a lot? He is unquestionably 100x more powerful and skilled than before. He beat all Blue Lock players in a fitness test. He also has the ability to copy Noel Noa’s skills! He can also control the ball using both his legs with the same accuracy.
Although the anime will not show everything, I hope that if there is a second season, we will get to see him in his new avatar!
Okawa’s team was first to challenge Isagi. Okawa’s style is explosive and unlike many others… He can be very inactive for long periods of time and then suddenly change the match.
All of this power was actually derived from Ikki who managed to control Okawa’s abilities. We don’t know how Okawa was eliminated but the chapters show Okawa leaving Blue Lock campus looking sad.
The Wanima brothers are well-known for their complete understanding of the field. They look identical, except that the older brother doesn’t speak as much and has a different facial expression.
It becomes nearly impossible to break the teamwork of these brothers when they get serious on the field. Their weakness was in this area!
Things turned sour when a player broke into their flow. And that led to Keisuke Wanima, the younger player, being eliminated.
The older brother must also have exceptional skills. It is my question as well whether he can break into the Blue Lock’s top.
Is There More Elimination?
The situation is now much better after a series eliminations. This could be due to many reasons. First and foremost, the remaining players are extremely talented! Isagi and the other survivors are among the 300 players who entered Blue Lock.
It’s not worth it to get rid of such great players that have the potential to be Japan’s greatest football players.
Which is your opinion? Which one do you think will be eliminated?
All the characters mentioned above have been eliminated. They won’t get the chance to participate in nationals. It’s up to the mangaka whether they will ever be seen.
According to my observations, the mangaka does not introduce a player after an elimination. Blue Lock is a hard truth.
