The announcement of the anime adaptation of Muneyuki Kaneshiro’s Blue Lock series surely excites fans. However, the makers seemed to make a mistake after releasing a Twitter post showing the release schedule of the anime, which turned out to have some typo errors.
A few days ago, the official Blue Lock anime’s Twitter account posted that the anime is scheduled to premier in 2023. Many fans think that the anime adaptation has been pushed back and delayed for some reason. However, they immediately clarified that there was a type error in their first tweet and also said that the anime would be released this year in 2022.

After the first update, the press release staff of Blue Lock anime confirmed that there will be no delay and the anime will still be released this year. They also revealed in a new tweet that the Blue Lock anime will premiere in 2022.
