Japan's 2022 FIFA World Cup Jersey Inspired By Anime Characters

1apan is set to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which will be the country's 31st appearance in the event. The country has qualified for the event for the third consecutive time, but has failed to make it out of group stage.

After Japan's embarrassing 2-1 defeat against Germany at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, anime fans have been taking over social media. The "Blue Lock" fandom is one of the most popular. People are beginning to remember that Honda Civic sponsors the Japanese soccer team's jersey, adding to the intrigue.

Adidas, the sponsor, stated the procedure in a marketing video was posted on its official YouTube page. Tsujimoto explained they loved the idea of the Japanese team during the FIFA World Cup 2006 in Germany wearing blue pants and white shirts for the Qatar FIFA World Cup 2022.

Yuki Arashigawa, the main character in Blue Lock, can be seen wearing this jersey on the cover of chapter 186. Both franchises are promoting soccer through the release of this limited edition, similar to Haikyuu did with its volleyball brand.

Illustrator Yusuke Nomura of 'Blue Lock' hopes that my project will serve as a way for people to become familiar with the sport. I hope many people will be interested in soccer through this project.

Japan is largely noted for its anime culture; in contrast to the sports manga typically broadcasted in this country, anime features motions that cannot be genuinely achieved in real life. Fan interest in sports anime is increasing.
