Blue Lock season 2 will likely adapt two story arcs, namely the Third Selection Arc and the U-20 Arc. Considering the upcoming match between Blue Lock 11 and Japan U-20, fans can expect director Jinpachi Ego to use the project's third selection round as a method to evaluate his starting eleven and substitutes for the upcoming match. Hence, the Third Selection Arc will become crucial to the story.

That's not all, as fans can also look forward to witnessing the results of sibling rivalry. Rin Itoshi will try to use the opportunity to defeat his older brother, Sae Itoshi, in an official match. Hence, fans can expect the story arc to focus a lot on not only protagonist Yoichi Isagi but also on the deuteragonist, Rin Itoshi.
