Blue Lock Chapter 229 is now officially delayed by one week with the arrival of the yearly occasion of Summer Festival, called ‘Obon.’
With the release of chapter 228, we can safely say that Barou is still the king of the field, with the fantastic display of strength of mind and scoring a goal against Bastard München.
Barou unbelievably squeezed through the defense of Bastard München and scored. Fans also witnessed the showdown between Barou and Yoichi Isagi with Michael Kaiser, where Barou outsmarted them all and bent them all to his unwavering will to score a goal without anyone’s assistance!
Barou also managed to change the prediction of Isagi’s Predator Eye. Instead of a straight cut-in shot, Barou dribbled the ball away from the opponents in his way! As the match of Bastard München vs. Ubers becomes more and more intense, the series is on the pace to become one of the best-selling sports manga of all time, although it still has a long way to go.
Chapter 228 ended with Barou scoring for the Ubers and tying up the match with Bastard München with a score of 2-2.
With his incredible skills and mental strength, Barou showed everyone on the ground that he is the King of Football, dribbling the ball alone to the goalpost to score one of the most impressive goals in the history of Blue Lock.
The tensions have calmed slightly with the scores tying up in the manga, but the fans are still impatient for the next chapter. Unfortunately, the fans have to wait an extra week now.
Blue Lock Chapter 229 Release Date:
With the hiatus of one week, as the Summer Festival is here, Blue Lock is now officially two weeks away. The chapter was initially slated to release on 16th August 2023, now moved to the release window of 23rd August 2023.
Yusuke Nomura, the artist for Blue Lock, is known for delivering chapters regularly, without any breaks, while keeping the art consistent and living up to the hype with each chapter.
Expectations For Blue Lock Chapter 229:
With the match between Bastard München and Ubers reaching 2-2 thanks to the efforts of Barou, München is now going to be in a stressful state. For them, the main character to look out for is Barou, even surprising Isagi, who had predicted that Barou would take a different approach.
Chapter 229 will, of course, begin with Ubers celebrating the eye-pleasing goal of Barou, with Snuffy praising his effort. After the celebration, Isagi will note down the details he lacked while trying to predict Barou’s next move in the match.
With the coach’s substitution time ending, the referee will make a substitution since Snuffy and Noa’s three minutes will end. As there was a chance of a goal every moment, the referee didn’t try to interfere in the match to make a substitution.
With Barou finally scoring a breathtaking goal, the referee will make a substitution. While it is still unknown who will get a substitute from Ubers, Hiori will likely be substituted for Noa as it was shown that Isagi needs his skills to bring out the best in him and gain the upper hand against not just the Ubers team but also on Michael Kaiser.
Now that the match is in a delicate situation with a 2-2 score, it might be possible we get to see a penalty shoot-out for the first time in Blue Lock.
With the fantastic display of Barou’s strength, chapter 228 comes to an end. But with the Summer Festival approaching, fans must wait two weeks for the anticipated match between Bastard München and Ubers to continue.
Blue Lock chapter 229 is now set to release on 23rd August 2023 instead of 16th August 2023. The scans of the chapter will be released as early as 20th August 2023, allowing the readers to read the chapter before the official release!
