In what order should you watch Blue Lock?

Blue Lock is a relatively simple series to watch. Although the anime series came first, chronologically, the Blue Lock: Episode Nagi movie comes before, as it serves as a prequel to the series. Still, the first season gives you a much better introduction to the world of Blue Lock, so you should probably start with the anime series, watch a couple of episodes to get into the lore, and then go back to the prequel movie to follow the story properly, after which you should just return to the anime series and follow through the numerical progression of the episodes.
