As a huge fan of the original Black Clover manga I feel like I owe it to this series to write a review so here it goes

Story (8): Not much changed here from the original manga, not wholly originally but entertaining none the less.

Art (4): I'm embarrassed to say the character designs were copied over in a very sloppy way and the animation was so stilted and awkward it look like a low budget game running in 30fps, it was garbage.

Sound (5): The music wasn't awful but none of the tracks really stood out to me, the voices just didn't fit and it really hurt read more

Honestly, this is just a much much worse version of the episode where Yuno and Asta get their Grimoires.

I was really hopeful to see something new or at least a little bit more story than what's shown in the original anime, however I was extremely disappointed.

I'd say 3/10 at best. The overall quality looks like a 360p 3D animation and the voices don't match the characters(might be be cause I'm used to the main series after almost 200 eps).

Just 3/10 across the board.

Only watch it if you want to tick it off your list, but otherwise don't waste your time.

This is my first review.

Story: 8/10. The story is really simple, a magic world with powerful forces such the Magic Emperor and the Magic Knights, and the MC and his rivall aim to become the Magic Emperor. If you like Fairy Tail and Naruto, give it a chance.
Art: 5/10. The weakest point so far, the really is fair creepy compared to the manga art, the characters were a bit uncharacteristic compared to the manga counterpart, especially Mars.
Sound: 7/10. Decent soundtrack, looks like medieval songs, consistent with the story setting. Someone voice actors are good, especially Yuno voice actor. The MC voice actor is good, but read more

As a complete stranger as I can be, with no prior knowledge or interest in the source material or the parent series, I decided to have this OVA be my gate, my decision about whether to watch the main series out of curiosity.
This is a totally honest point of view of a newcomer that doesn't know how good or bad the source material is, so cut me some slack. “Black Clover: Jump Festa 2016 Special” presents a preview of what the main anime adaptation was going to be like, hitting at some major plot points, and introducing the setting of the story in a way read more
