Blue Lock chapter 259 continued the events after Isagi's Two-gun volley goal. Kaiser's frustrated reaction to the protagonist's goal is also showcased as he calls out to Ness to lend him a hand in using his new technique that they practiced earlier.

The whistle blew, and the match restarted with the ball in Rin's possession. Suddenly, Charles started to scream that Loki substituted him because Shidou was being marked, and his passes weren't going through. Loki showed an angry reaction and stated that it was a habit of Charles to lose motivation so early on. Rin tried to pass to Karasu but was interrupted by Kurona.

Kurona tried passing the ball to Isagi, but Kaiser interrupted him. A flashback was showcased where Kaiser showed Ness his Magnus Effect, which involved applying spin to his shoot. Back to the present, Kaiser made an angle and shot towards the goal with Kaiser Impact: Magnus, a new move.

Unfortunately, the spin on the ball wasn't enough, and it missed. Ness was surprised that Kaiser couldn't apply enough Magnus Effect (spin) to the ball. Isagi was also surprised to witness this spectacle as Kaiser screamed in agony after missing such a close shot.


What to expect from Blue Lock chapter 260 (speculative)

Blue Lock chapter 260 was titled Piece of Trash, as revealed in the last panel of the chapter. As speculated from the title, the chapter could be centered around Kaiser and his missed attempt at a goal. With only a few minutes left in the last match of the NEL, the chapter could be Kaiser being substituted for someone else.

Although it surprised everyone, his failed attempt at using his new technique was unfortunate. But the match has no time for hit-and-trial tactics so that the fans could see Kaiser's downfall in the upcoming chapter.
