With the latest chapter of Blue Lock, the spotlight continues to shine on Hiori Yo, who consistently dazzles everyone on the field with his precision in dribbling and agile movements. Hiori’s sole aspiration is to support Isagi and become the crucial factor that propels him to the coveted number-one position.
The release date for Blue Lock chapter 236 was also unveiled in the recent installment, confirming its continuation on a weekly release schedule. Currently, Hiori Yo remains the central focus of the manga, continuously evolving more than anyone else on the field.
In addition to his exceptional dribbling skills and astonishing speed, Hiori is dedicated to synchronizing his thoughts with Isagi’s. This synchronization enables him to predict Isagi’s precise movements and determine the perfect placement for passing the ball directly to Isagi’s feet.
Blue Lock Chapter 236 Release Date:
The release date for the next chapter of Blue Lock has been revealed, and it is slated to be released on October 11, 2023, with the Weekly Shonen Magazine release.
Blue Lock Chapter 236 Expectations:
The recent chapter begins with the ball still in the air, a result of Barou blocking the shot from Isagi and Kaiser. In an attempt to secure possession of the loose ball, Kunigami and Aryu lunge forward. Aryu makes initial contact with the ball, but it remains in play.
Meanwhile, Kaiser and Oliver Aiku engage in a struggle for control of the ball. Seizing the opportunity, Isagi swoops in and successfully steals the ball, passing it to Hiori.
This successful pass boosts Hiori’s confidence. Assuming that Isagi still maintains faith in him, he dedicates himself to devising a new offensive strategy that surpasses their previous one and exceeds Isagi’s expectations. Just as he is about to proceed with his plan, an unexpected interruption occurs. The spectral presence of his parent’s expectations materializes, exerting a sinister influence upon him, compelling him to take the shot himself rather than passing it to Isagi, all while emphasizing their expectations of outstanding achievements from him.
His parents’ expectations were the primary reason he joined Blue Lock because he despised them. A sudden thought occurs to him: isn’t he doing the same thing right now, trying to meet Isagi’s expectations, even though he doesn’t detest it? However, that’s not the end of it. The spectral presence of Jinpachi Ego also arrives, compelling him to take the shot. After all, isn’t it the duty of a striker to take shots?
Confused between two choices—whether to pass the ball to Isagi or take the shot himself—Hiori experiences a flashback of Karasu. This flashback compels him to believe in himself and leads to the realization that he has never considered his future. He had always allowed his parents to make decisions for him.
He placed blame on them when things went wrong, using it as a shield to avoid getting hurt and realizing how he had been living infuriated Hiori, prompting him to take a step toward self-belief. Despite Isagi’s continuous calls to pass the ball, Hiori decided to take the shot, seeking an answer to whether he was meant to play football. This unexpected move surprised everyone on the field.
The shot was flawless and would have been a goal if not for Sendou Shuto, who kicked the ball at the last moment, altering its trajectory and hitting the crossbar. While this save benefited Ubers, it left Hiori shattered as it confirmed that football was not his path. However, Hiori’s kick wasn’t in vain; it helped Isagi discover the missing piece he needed—his ultimate winning formula.
With Sendou Shuto’s last-minute save, the game between Bastard München and Ubers remains tied at 2-2. Despite nothing going according to Hiori’s plan, he may have inadvertently given Isagi a clue to his missing piece.
Blue Lock chapter 236, scheduled for release on October 11, 2023, explores how Isagi plans to leverage this newfound insight to his advantage.
