Seishiro Nagi is one of the main characters in the popular sports manga, Blue Lock. He is a tall, white-haired teenager who is a prodigy when it comes to soccer. In this article, we will take a closer look at his appearance, personality, and abilities.
Nagi is notably tall for his age and has short, white hair that leaves a V-shaped fringe in between his eyes like Yoichi Isagi, the protagonist of the series. He has large gray-colored eyes with large irises.
In high school, Nagi wore a school uniform consisting of a white blazer with a cascading layer star pattern on the collar. However, at Blue Lock, he wears the standard-issued body suit (black with gray stripes) and tracksuit.
Despite his natural talent, Nagi is a very lazy and unmotivated person. He does not want to put any effort into soccer and would rather play video games or skip training. He initially belittles those who are weak and talentless at the game and does not even know much about the best football players in the world.
However, after experiencing his first-ever loss to Team Z, he starts to take more initiative and becomes motivated to improve his skills. By the time of the Neo-Egoist League, beating Isagi is Nagi’s most important driving force. Nagi cares about his friends and teammates, especially Reo Mikage, even though their relationship turns rocky from the Second Selection onward.
Despite this, he is an egoist and cares only about his ambition, dream, and winning. Nagi tends to clash with someone he doesn’t like which makes him annoyed. This is seen when he meets Baro, and they immediately begin to argue and provoke each other, challenging each other frequently in a 1 vs. 1 and fighting for who will have the single bed in a room for teams of three members.
Nagi is a creative midfielder, a midfield player that is able to create goal-scoring opportunities for the team even in situations where nothing seems likely. They usually have good ball control, passing ability, and movement, and will be blessed with vision and on-the-ball intelligence.
With Nagi’s perfect ball control, flexible movements, and technical ability, he is able to breathe life into even the most difficult or hopeless plays. He alone has made the most outrageous goals in Blue Lock due to this skill and continues to evolve into a creative playmaker.
In football, being in control of the ball is of great importance to every level of player. Nagi has exceptional ball control and demonstrates it constantly by setting up traps and scoring with near-pinpoint accuracy. He constantly scores high-level shots, especially in unfavorable positions, when under pressure from tough opponents.
One of his most impressive feats is when he performed a fake volley shot. His ability to control the ball is only rivaled by Rin Itoshi and Tabito Karasu.
First Touch Pass
Using his exceptional ball control, Nagi is able to use his first touch to make a creative pass to a teammate. What makes Nagi stand out is that he comes up with new ways of laying off the ball, whether it be with his chest or the tip/side/heel of his foot. Nagi is also able to use his first touch to make a shot on goal, a skill that is difficult to master.
In conclusion, Seishiro Nagi is a complex character in the Blue Lock manga series. While he initially shows little motivation and a lack of interest in soccer, his loss against Team Z in the First Selection sparks a change in him, leading him to become more driven and passionate about the game. Despite his egoist tendencies, Nagi cares deeply about his friends and teammates, especially Reo Mikage.
As a creative midfielder, Nagi possesses exceptional ball control and is capable of making creative plays that lead to goals. Through training and analysis, Nagi has continued to evolve and refine his skills, making him one of the top players in Blue Lock. His growth and development as a character make him an interesting and important part of the series.
