Both are Action Shonen that are made by the same studio. Both are about a young boy who wear a headband that is a Orphan that has Demon living inside of him, both main characters have a similar personality and same dream to became the Wizard King/Hokage. The different between the two is Black Clover is more of a comedy and Naruto is more of a Drama, Black Clover also does a way better job with it's Female characters then Naruto.

The main character doesn't have something that everyone else has, being super powers or magic until hope appears. Both are Shounen Jump series.

Both series are centered on friendship and have the same "never give up" motto. The main protagonist is in a guildsquad where there are a lot of people very different from each other. Both shows give the same vibe of "i will do anything to protect my friends" and "everyone can understand each other". Friendship, rivalry, fights, life or death battles. Different past story plot but both enjoyable

From the big three anime – One Piece, Bleach, and Naruto – the ninja series shares the most similarities with Black Clover. This should not really come as much of a surprise since Studio Pierrot handled Naruto and Naruto: Shippuuden. In most ways, Black Clover is the studio’s attempt to recreate the magic of their most popular series. This is particularly apparent in the story’s pacing, as both series allow ample time for the characters to goof off, with a heavy employment of flashbacks to develop their backstories. At this point, Naruto barely needs any introduction, but we might-as-well mention a thing or two about the  read more

Both series have protagonists as brothers, with near-dichotomous personalities, including talent levels. Both involve a single father raising both of them. If you like the fantasy & drama vibe of Ao no Exorcist, you might take a liking to Black Clover.

After watching Hunter X Hunter, I was looking for another anime with tons of impressive fight scenes and lovable characters. There are tons of similarities between these two animes. The first similarities are apparent: they are both shounen, they both take place in worlds with "magic," they both have an unexpectedly powerful main character, and both shows are over 100 episodes. Both main characters have incredibly supportive friends, and they both never give up. The other similarities between the shows are harder to notice: both animes have dark undertones, and they take place in vast complex worlds. They have multiple evil villains and obstacles to  read more

Similar premises of Magic Knights and Soul Reapers being in squads that serve their respective countries. The creator of Black Clover stated that Bleach was an inspiration for his series.

Loud shounen main characters. Both main characters start off at the "bottom" then rise up through their journey. Both main character have a special power they have yet to master. Both main characters persue a big dream and thats their main goal. They also both cherish and fight with and for their friends

This is special recom for Asta fans. And here is why: - Main character is same emotional and very loud - There are also others very loud players - Both Asta and Eijun are stubborn and oh well... both aren't too inteligent

The protagonist in Black Clover is of unknown origin and is mostly useless when it comes to the standard form of fighting, both characteristics are each that of the two protagonists in World Trigger. Secondary cast features an over powered cute girl; also in Black Clover; as well as over powered senpai; also in Black Clover. The two shows also share a similar voice cast.

When I first started to read Black Clover it reminded me so much of both Naruto and Fairy Tail. -Both stories are about a magical world -The magian's guild is crazy like Fairy Tail. -Both anime have similar characters, including magical/power fights,a lot of funny moments and scenes that touch people emotionally . -The main characters have never give up attitude .

Anime of magic and spells, it has a similar context, with the same bad luck of Asta, but it is very unique and entertaining at the same time, really worth watching.

+Bold "underdog" protagonists that stand up to elitists. +Protagonists somehow manages to win (mostly). +Enlists in a faction that is another kind of underdog attributed to the leads. +A female side character who is elitist but later trusts the protagonist. +Clear goal to become the best in their respective fields. +Leads who are lighthearted that don't take themselves too seriously. +Leads are constantly underestimated.

Main character very similar. Not talented, clumsy but determined to achieve their goal. (Akko wants to become a great wizard like Chariot, Asta wants to become the leader of the emperors) Both series with fantasy universe where magic is common. Black Clover will show more fights while Little Witch Academia focuses on adventure.

Black Clover has its own rivalry but different because they don't learn/go to school and the rival (yuno) believes he's the only fit one to be a rival with asta.

- Both series are sitting in fantasy worlds where there are Knights and is used Magic. - Both main characters are related to demons and have big massive sword. - Both main characters are rivals with their best friend, but in Berserk it's more like hatred, but in both they are related through their past.

Both are battle shounen with a similar fast pacing, so if you enjoy either one of them for that, the other one ll also appeal to you.

Both of them have similar MC, Aram (Asta) and Yuri (Yuno). The drawing is also kinda like Black Clover. They both have same goal/concept: fighting against evil, except Black Clover is more on like becoming the magic king rather than that.

Main character can nullify magic. Also both of the main characters are supposed to be really weak but has a stupid power so they beat the crap out of everyone.

Both shows share a similar fantasy world, but with black clover you get more world and character development a long with several intriguing plot lines and theories. 
report Recommended by Tavisto
I could've recommended the first season of fire force, except season 2 is far superior. Anyway both of these are action/shonen shows that have great fight scenes. They both have sorta likes 'teams' made up of really cool characters who you're bound to start liking (mereoleona from bc and Benimaru from ff are the best op side characters). If you liked Black Clover you should definitely give fire force a try! the fanservice and lack of strong female characters is annoying in Fire Force, especially after watching Black Clover, but the rest is great.

Here the MC is very powerful, but he is weak in the beginning.. He gradually becomes strong enough to beat the most powerful guy in the mafia .. (Should give this a go if you want to see anime like black clover)

Both anime take place in a world where mages and magic is common. In both of the anime, Magic is the most prominent power. Both MCs are Harem kings[Asta-Noelle, Mimosa, Sister Lily, Vanessa, Secre] [Rudeus-Roxy, Sylphiette, Eris, Ghislaine]

Similarities: Both one piece and Black Clover are very similar story-wise and character-wise Both anime's Main Characters go from having nothing (very weak) but is steady Both MCs has rival friends who compete against them to get better Both MCs have similar goals such as becoming a Pirate or a Hokage Both are underestimated and they surpass their limits which surprises their friends

Both series have an identical style of combat animation and a similar overall moral compass. While it takes dreadfully long to see the hyperspeed combat of Black Clover, due to Fate/Apocrypha's fewer episodes, they become the highlights of the show. While both are made from differing studios and producers, they both have the same impressions. Where staying true to corny ideals clashes against disingenuous enemy motives. Yet, the hyperspeed combat is truly the highlights of both of these shows. They trade artistic detail for animation intensity. Some may argue it's a deterioration for quality, but if you liked that style in one series, you will surely  read more

At first,both of the MC are considered powerless,though they get superpowers greater than none other. Both of them is related to magic 
report Recommended by HellSlayingOtaku
Black Clover and Soul Eater envision a universe where normal everyday people are bestowed with magic, making the supernatural an almost mundane occurrence. The latter is considerably faster paced, but they share similar larger-than-life characters and a dedication to light-hearted comedy.

Black Clover and Seraph of the End are both based on shonen manga published by Shueisha. The main character in both series are orphans and have an adopted brother. The main character's brother is in a rivaling faction, the Golden Dawn and the Black Bulls in Black Clover, and Vampires vs the Demon Company in Seraph of the End. The main character in both series also have a demon power which look very similar and they both use a sword to fight.

Both MCs wield swords Both MCs are seen as weak as they lack a certain ability Both MCs are always underestimated Black Clover leans more towards action and adventure Rakudai leans more towards harem and romance.

These anime have a main character with no magic and use swords as weapons. Main characters also have a demon like power. These are filled with an adventerous journey towards their goal.

As well as Naruto, Black Clover is going to be the next big thing in anime. Somehow it gives me the same feeling as I'm watching Naruto. Studio Pierrot is famously known for their work with the Bleach, Naruto, Boruto and Twin Star Exorcist series’. However, they soon might be known for another new animated production called Black Clover. The series is already being compared to other Shonen franchises such as One Piece and Fairy Tail, despite the series yet to premiere. In addition, the studio has already said that they want and expect Black Clover to be the next Naruto, as the two anime have  read more

Both the main characters have the same power to nullify magic while they do not possess any magic themselves. They both have the same morals of refusing to give up and being powerless before coming into power.

Well, it looked similar to me in the sense that there are squads in both the anime which involve family-like relationships and also mc's squad is not well-reputed.

Both main characters do the "MADA MADA MADA" scream,in some parts of the story. Both features Knights,In Black Clover you got the magic knights,in Saint Seiya the saints. Also,Gemini Saga is pretty similar to one of the squad captains in Black Clover.

If you like Black Clover, you will like DanMachi also, this is why; - "Fantasy World" setting, where the magic and adventures are lit - Both protagonist are "weak" to begin with, but grows stronger by time, both also have some one the look up to - basically "from a zero to hero" - DanMachi also have it's own "harem" and bit of fan service, which make it more fun to watch I think its good to watch DanMachi because soon they will release its 3rd season, if you watch it now, you might finish 1st & 2nd season by the time of 3rd season release.
