Blue Lock Chapter 239: Spoilers
With Isagi and Hiori celebrating their game-winning goal, Hiori shares that he was at one point considering leaving the game. However, with this victory, his ambitions have evolved into something greater, with aims to become a truly influential, integral ‘creator’ or ‘producer’ as a star striker.

Blue Lock Chapter 238 Recap
There’s only one thing we should be talking about here in Blue Lock Chapter 238: the goal. It’s been many furiously frustrating months without a goal to cap off the match and bring things to an end.
The chapter began with a clear indicator that things were about to finish conclusively, with Hiori in control of the ball. Niko isn’t able to keep up and aims to slow him down. His opponents on the Ubers have all eyes on him, deftly maneuvering the field, feinting while setting up the goal.
Hiori gives off the impression that he’s not aiming to make the pass after all but take the shot himself. Yet, in a moment where Hiori and Isagi seemingly share the same intents, he seemingly blindly passes to Isagi, knowing he’ll be there to receive. Isagi blitzes to his spot to accept the pass. He does and scores a stunning goal to end the match. By doing so, they’ll surely cement a potent image for themselves in the football world, executing a perfect play while connected as teammates immaculately.
