Asta and Yuno were abandoned together at the same church and have been inseparable since. As children, they promised that they would compete against each other to see who would become the next Emperor Magus. However, as they grew up, some differences between them became plain. Yuno was a genius with magic, with amazing power and control, while Asta could not use magic at all, and tried to make up for his lack by training physically. When they received their Grimoires at age 15, Yuno got a spectacular book with a four-leaf clover (most people receive a three-leaf-clover), while Asta received nothing at all. However, when Yuno was threatened, the truth about Asta's power was revealed, he received a five-leaf clover Grimoire, a "black clover"! Now the two friends are heading out in the world, both seeking the same goal!

Hello fellow readers , i was surprised by the fact that all fair or negatives reviews about this anime got brutally deleted in November.

Why does the best 2017 Shonen need this much censor ?

We are here to discuss freely about how we viewers feel about it . We are not disrespectful regarding the staff or everybody who put their heart and efforts into this project. The main problems for the western audience are still :

- Asta Voice Acting
- Overused shonen cliché

Hopefully the DUB version is good and fit perfectly our sensibility.And if you are shonen lover , you dont really mind how read more

The term "Cliche" is common when talking about a lot of anime.

In the world of anime, this term is common with several Ecchi shows, harems, and tons of other shows. People tend to attempt to leech off other show's success, and this show is a result of that.

As of now, Black Clover's MAL rating is around a 6.7/10. Honestly, I can see why. This show uses so many tropes, and it constantly being bashed on for ripping off many popular shounen series, with it mostly being compared to Naruto. Nonetheless, there is some enjoyability in the series.

And now, let's get onto the review!

I think this anime is good, and will be of great success in the future. The manga was very decently made and the storyline is pretty good.

Story: 9/10
Art: 10/10
Sound: 10/10
Characters: 10/10
Enjoyment: 10/10
OVERALL: 10/10

This anime also has a solid animation, great background artworks. Don't go for the reviews saying it isn't a good anime, they're probably shtupped in the head. Like give this anime some time, let some main story begin, let the plot kick in. Seriously. Also people say it's copying other anime, well it's similar but it's not 'copying'.
Also the animation at few points, like when Asta is attacking, it goes uncolored, which read more

Its a shame that this adaption turned out the way it did. Asta is pretty off the walls in the manga too, but the voice acting is just dreadful, its like dragging nails against a chalk board. It replays the same old formula that every other shounen does, but the story itself is pretty good.

Overall, the deal breaker for me in this is the voice acting. It feels like work trying to watch this. I can handle one screaming character, but now there are two of them.

I think I'll just stick to the manga for now, and if you're also dissatisfied, read more
