Muneyuki Kaneshiro Launches the Blue Rock Manga

Muneyuki Kaneshiro and Yusuke Nomura launched a new manga titled Blue Rock in this year’s 35th issue of Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine. Kaneshiro is credited with the original work, and Nomura is drawing the art.

The manga begins with Japan’s elimination from the 2018 World Cup, which prompts the Japanese Football Union to start a program to scout high schools for select players that will train and prepare for the 2022 World Cup. The protagonist Yuichi Kiyoshi, a forward in his high school team, receives an invitation to join the program, just after his team loses the Saitama finals and misses their chance to play in nationals.
