Synopsis

Asta and Yuno were abandoned at the same church on the same day. Raised together as children, they came to know of the "Wizard King"—a title given to the strongest mage in the kingdom—and promised that they would compete against each other for the position of the next Wizard King. However, as they grew up, the stark difference between them became evident. While Yuno is able to wield magic with amazing power and control, Asta cannot use magic at all and desperately tries to awaken his powers by training physically.

When they reach the age of 15, Yuno is bestowed a spectacular Grimoire with a four-leaf clover, while Asta receives nothing. However, soon after, Yuno is attacked by a person named Lebuty, whose main purpose is to obtain Yuno's Grimoire. Asta tries to fight Lebuty, but he is outmatched. Though without hope and on the brink of defeat, he finds the strength to continue when he hears Yuno's voice. Unleashing his inner emotions in a rage, Asta receives a five-leaf clover Grimoire, a "Black Clover" giving him enough power to defeat Lebuty. A few days later, the two friends head out into the world, both seeking the same goal—to become the Wizard King!

Patience is a virtue they say. And its true in many cases for me when watching long running shounens like Black Rover. Had i decided to write a review for this after 30 or so episodes i might have only given it a 5. Asta is one of the most annoying protagonists ever. Constantly screaming and shouting. A complete idiot. Theres not much story development. Theres to much time wasted on Asta being a complete idiot.

But then around episode 30, or the Midnight Sun arc something starting to happen. An antagonist, more backstory, world building, and pieces of the story puzzle starting to take ...

Mixed Feelings
From the weakest to the strongest point in Black Clover (No spoilers)

Asta's Scream
You have to endure the first 18 or so episodes of the protagonist making an unbearable scream in every single sentence.

Characters personalities
If the author told me by the end of the series that all of the characters were cursed and their personalities have changed to an annoying, repetitive joke, it would be the best plot twist ever. After watching Black Clover, any character with at least 2 normal sentences will strike you as a well-written character. Even in important moments this ""funny"" trait make presence.
Favorite characters are Dorothy, Nacht and Mereoleona ...

Eventhough I sat through all 170 episodes and even watched the movie... i do not recommend you to watch it if you dont want to waste your time. I would even have a mixed feeling about it if the animation wouldnt be so shitty.

There were some good 5 moments in this show. => The only arc i somehow enjoyed watching was the Elf Reincarnation Arc from about eps 100 to 122. The animation in this arc was actually good compared to the rest of the anime and the fights and story were also kind of interesting and enjoy able.

BUT... for the other arcs just straight ...
