Blue Lock season finale to air one hour earlier than usual due to daylight savings
What date and time will Blue Lock episode 24 ‘The Time Has Come’ release worldwide, and has a preview been shared for the finale?
The 2023 Winter anime broadcasting slate is now entering the home straight, with just one more week of respective finales before we bid farewell to the season for good.
One of the standout anime of the past six months has been the ever-entertaining Blue Lock series, which exploded in popularity thanks to the Japanese national teams’ outstanding performance at the FIFA World Cup.
However, all good things must come to an end; so, what date and time will Blue Lock episode 24, the season 1 finale, release around the world?

The official Japanese website has shared the following synopsis for Blue Lock episode 24, titled ‘The Time Has Come’:
“Isagi is nominated by Rin, and together with Bachira, he breaks through to the second round of selection. 5-on-5 matches against world-class superstars await them. The team succeeds in scoring the first goal through the cooperation of Isagi, Bachira and Rin, but they are gradually overwhelmed by the World Selected Team, which has a different level of ability. Even so, Isagi and his team desperately fight back and smash their own “egos” until the very last second. The “Blue Rock” project to create the world’s best striker moves into a new phase.”
