Well hmm.. alright then, I guess the cast looks fine.

And I got the jist it would be Fall 2017 because it would have been too weird for it to air in Summer 2017. I'm fine I guess with it.

it's even enough for 75 episode if they want... it's 11 volume manga already + 1 vol light novel and by the time aired, it will 13 vol manga... it's anounced kinda late compare to BnHA or WT...

Interested in it. Haven't read the manga yet. Hoping for it to be decent battle shounen.

Nope. He is a beginner (well, he DID appear in one CD drama, but his role was Fan A). He got the role trough auditions, so I wouldn't worry too much.

I'm not sure how the director will handle the story but one thing I know for sure is that the animation will be great.

Yep, I've said before and I'll say it again, anything Studio Pierrot touches turns to shit.

I don't wanna be a negative Nancy but after their horrid adaptation of TG S2 and TSE, I can't be convinced that they'll do right by this series. I'll still watch this though of course.

I never understand people like you. Not to mention your statement is quite the hyperbole.

While I dislike the studio for how they handled the series they've adapted in recent time, that doesn't mean I can't have some hope that they'll make something I believe will actually be worthwhile.

It's not that hard to understand really.

i heard bandai namco rushed the project and forced pierrot adding lot of shit because they want to realse game version of it sooner... hence why it full of battle/advanture fillers (and honestly, i actually feels it's also affecting original source)... same thing also happened with BnHA thanks TOHO....

glad that Black CLover didn't suffer same fate since it's has pretty underdog popularity...

I thought the manga was good. The anime may be better.

Wait I didn't knew about this information regarding on the game and that being Bandai... well then again, I wouldn't be surprised since they did the exact same thing with prior stuff tbh. At least imo.

Taking into consideration how this series is a Shounen I highly doubt that it would fail popularity wise but I do think it will probably fail financially. Though tbh I don't really want to because I thought the OVA was okay. It doesn't show anything special but I'm fine with it I guess.

Please Studio Pierrot don't fuck up the animation of this one. Its been a while since I saw a good quality shounen anime and I honestly think this one has a potential.

it's just discussion some people conclude because how starnge the adaptation going was... it's add tons of character, rearrange everything for the sake to make character show his power sooner... and coincidently or not, bandai launching it PS VITA game soon after...

black clover is mainly focused in story and action that make character and world buildings kinda neglected... hence why it's hard to made the game yet, and hope it's not rushing things like that too... look like game become big source of anime income... saiki also adapted (after 19 vol, lol) when they want to launch game (but also LA)...

Holy crap it's this year? I hoped it would be next year so they could at least give this a bit more attention when they were done with boruto.

I'm also glad they chose another voice actor for asta instead of the one xebec used.

TG S2 was said to be an alternate story, not an adaptation, before the second season began. TSE I did not have enough manga chapters.

Am I wrong, that it sounds more like a more mature Naruto/Sasuke story? Not that this is bad, in fact it might be exactly what we need!
