We also got a glimpse into Julian Loki’s scheme. He wants to utilize both Rin and Shido to take down Bastard Munchen. It’s a pretty cunning plan!

What Happened in Blue Lock Chapter 246
Chapter 246 of Blue Lock, titled “Irregularity and Abnormality,” kicked off with Kiyora Jin and Igarashi Gurimu training together while Noel Noa observed.
Later, we got an update on the player auction rankings. Reo and Nagi dropped a few pegs, while Sendo and Ryusei climbed to 13th and 4th place, respectively. As for Shoei Barou, he tied for 2nd place with Yoichi Isagi.
We also learned what scheming coach Julian Loki has planned for PXG’s upcoming match with Bastard Munchen. So far, PXG has only played matches featuring Rin or Shido as their ace striker. But Loki wants to gamble and utilize both aces in this final, critical game.
Additionally, we discovered why Loki came to the Neo Egoist League in the first place – to mentor 15-year-old phenom Charles Chevalier. Loki aims to transform Chevalier into a first-rate player who can eventually help him, Loki, become the best soccer player on the planet. It’s a pretty lofty aspiration!
I don’t know about you, but I’m excited to see if Loki’s risky tactics pay off against Bastard Munchen. And will his training propel Chevalier to soccer stardom? Exciting times ahead in Blue Lock!
