However, this one day-break didn’t stay relaxed as the Blue Lock team was challenged to a rematch by the U-20 team they beat. But to keep the day off spirits, the rematch is to be fulfilled by bowling. Blue Lock vs. U-20, Bowling Showdown!!
Chapter 150 Recap
Before we jump into chapter 151 spoilers, let’s do a quick recap of what went down in chapter 150, titled ‘Day Off.’
As mentioned before and seen in the title of the chapter, chapter 150 gives our players a well-deserved day off. After giving the players their phones and other belongings Ego sent them out on their two-week breaks, a reward for their recent win.
We see that Bachira, Chigiri, and Isagi agreed to meet up at a coffee shop in the Shibuya region. Isagi asks if they invited anyone else and Bachira and Isagi inform him that they tried, but most of the original Team Z wasn’t available. After coincidentally running into Reo, Kenyuu, Jyuubei, Tabito, Aoshi, and Otoya, the group collectively decides to go to a nearby arcade and jump Nagi. Who didn’t show up because he woke up late, and then found a new interesting arcade to check out.
After playing a couple of games and having fun the group moves on to try some karaoke. But while searching for open rooms the players run into the U-20 team. Claiming Blue Lock to be their despised enemies the two teams prepare to fight. Aqua jumps in however, saying instead they should do some bowling and bet dinner on it.
After arriving at the bowling alley the teams start to fill in their names when the Blue Lock team finds Barou playing by himself. Hitting a perfect strike, the team immediately swarms him, to which he responds, you are violating my sacred space. Making the whole team start to laugh. A very wholesome moment that chapter 150 ended on.
Chapter 151 Spoilers
Now that we are all caught up, let’s dive right into chapter 151’s spoilers. Warning, however, some raws for the upcoming chapter are already out so there are confirmed spoilers below, you have been warned.
Chapter 151, titled ‘A Changing World,’ begins after a couple of games have been played between the two teams. We see the U-20’s super focused Miruko get a strike on the team’s final turn, forcing the Blue Lock team to also hit a strike to tie. So for the last roll, Nagi steps up, the whole time he comments to himself how he is hungry and sweaty. Obviously not paying attention Nagi trips on his own foot and sends the ball flying down the lane. Miraculously, he hits a strike causing the game to go into overtime.
Isagi excuses himself, telling the groups he has to go meet up with another friend. As he waits for the train to pull in a little boy with his father and mother recognizes Isagi and walks up to him. The boy goes on to tell him that Isagi’s final goal was so cool and that he likes Isagi and all the other Blue Lock players. After shaking the boy’s hand happily and boarding the train Isagi thinks to himself he really has changed, both his goal and the world.
Then we get to see who Isagi was meeting with, it’s Tada Tomonari, one of Isagi’s high school teammates. Though we readers recognize him as the one who missed that goal, way back in chapter 1. After chatting up and catching up with him, Tada says something along the lines of, that was one lucky goal. To which Isagi laughs along with, Tada then continues, saying, you used all your lives luck on that goal. Isagi laughs along again but in his head, he thinks about how, sure that goal could be luck, but everything else he did in Blue Lock was a difficult fight. After chatting some more the two say their goodbyes, and Isagi says that he was wrong, the world didn’t change, he did.
For the last few pages of the chapter, we get to see Ego in the Blue Lock meeting room with those he calls, the big owners. The big owners mention that though this was a risky investment, it’s turning out well. To which Ego responds that risk and return will always be equal, otherwise it isn’t interesting.
Ego continues on to say, he will involve the world in Blue Lock Phase 2, mentioning how it will be a super dreadnaught entertainment project. Ending the chapter there, in Ego’s crazy planning.
