the pacing of the anime is on the slow side, however i didn't mind it all that much.
but surely i would love for this series to start pick up the pace otherwise people who know about this series from anime will start dropping it.
but man, clover kingdom really a discriminating country to a point where a kid as small as nash can't even think about dreaming.
these guys said " i want to go to heaven ". they didn't even realise their action is leading them to hell.

First time I see an anime taking 4 episodes to finish chapter 1 of a manga... or mmaybe 5 depending on the pacing of the next episode

Despite Asta's seiyuu screaming, I really loved and enjoyed this episode. Finally some developments in the plot happened (I might be wrong since I haven't read the manga, so it might be a filler). And, as always, Yuno is so handsome. Ugh. I'm holding onto this for Yuno, tbh. Haha jk. Naaaaah.

Their 'Father' is gonna miss them, though, and he doesn't want Asta to go, Yuno can go. Haha.

I love Asta really because of his shenanigans, but his seiyuu is ruining him for me, but heck I'll get used to his voice in no time.

Ganbatte, Yuno and Asta!

This is by far my fave Black Clover episode. <3

The first magic kind sure was a badass though in managing to take down such a powerful monster by himself. I can see why its every kids dream to become either a magic king or a magic knight. But im surprised that Asta's grimore was one that made use of physical strength rather than magic. So those two jerks as a result of almost being killed decided not to be mages anymore. Your origins shouldn't be something that restrains you from your dreams. No one really thinks that Asta will be able to pass the exam eh. That sure is a lot of tatos they have for the last meal though. In a way i guess both Yuno and Asta find strength from each other and developed from there. Their journey to the capital sure was anything but uneventful though. But they finally made it to the capital where their next test awaits.

Another slow episode for whatever reason with Asta back at screaming and really not impressed about the animation, thought that it would be really good thing for sure. The next time the exam should start (for sure).

To people complaining about the VA, just turn the volume down whenever Asta speaks. Simple.
And who cares if this show is cliche, a lot of anime out there are copy of each other( not that is bad or anything ), it all comes down to how a they use the cliche to be entertaining. That just my opinion

I don't mind a show being cliche as long as it's entertaining overall, as you've said as well.

However, if many people complain about a character's voice, and it's to the point that someone like you says that all they have to do is turn the volume down each time that character speaks, then that's already a flaw of the series, and a bigger one if it's the main character. People really shouldn't have to feel the need in doing that.

Why am I still here? Why has Asta's voice not driven me away yet? It must be because of how high-school-hot Yuno is....

Hummm Tower wizard might have that feeling that Asta is a reincarnation of the demon king and that big sword is probably a remnant of the one used on the previous demon king. Could it be that the Gilmore that Asta has is the soul of the demon king?

I think I will give this one more episode to see if there is actually any story to bother putting up with that damn screechy voice of an idiot.

He should really tone down on the yelling. His voice is so annoying when he yells. When he talks it's semi-tolerable.

So much exposition... It really is the worst paced anime I have seen this season.
Also while the demon fight looked cool they screwed up its powers so badly that we might as well have been watching Dragon Ball Z for that beam shit.

If episode 3 is a filler episode which does nothing to move forward the main characters on their journey then this anime is just going to end up in the trash heap with a ton of other canceled anime.

I hated this episode so much because it focused on an aspect of Asta and Yuno that we already understood from the first episode. We dont need an episode to jackhammer it into our heads that Asta and Yuno are rivals but still friends with one another. It also focuses on their home life which we dont care about either. If the anime was going to spend more time at their orphanage it would make sense but spending so much time at a place where they will not be coming back to for the majority of the series makes no sense. It is just a waste of time and slows down the story even more.

I will watch this series till the end but I dont expect that many people will enjoy it considering how badly the producers have been handling the adaptation.
Edit: No I will not fucking watch 51 episodes of this shit.

My favorite part of this episode was when they were leaving to go to the capital you could literally see it from where they were and then it took them like two weeks to get there.

I like some sort of filler and I get it, seeing the character doing his training is important, but couldn't you show that in episode 5-10? I finally want to see something here, like the damn capital, and get an idea of the plot, more than the first chapters I have read. That pacing is weird.

The short adventure was cute and the family too (no, old priest, you can't replace Shiro from Ao no Exorcist, even if you look similar xD), but Asta is still annoying and his voice has still the pitch of a crow. I swear, everytime when I'm hearing the highest peak of his voice, I twitch a little bit. XD

That anime feels like starting a new Pokemon game. You know, it took you forever, especially in Sun and Moon, to leave that damn village to get in a "city". But before you did that, you were walking through the grass and train a little bit. That's how the episode feels like. So, Asta got... his starter now. Do finally something with it! :'D

I wrotte a summary about the manga.

Also, I suggest you to stockpile the episodes up then watch them at once. I do the same with other shonens like One Piece, where the pacing is even more horrible. You shall until watch other animes that you missed from the summer.

Wrotte a summary from the manga.

It is still the "Introduction arc", the story with massive foreshadowings started in chapter 9 in the manga.

Unless this is at least 2-cour, this anime is gonna really suck. The pacing's terrible if it's 1-cour. Not really enjoying it so far...

The animation in the beginning was a bit weird compare to the other episodes and the rest of the episode. So they're finally leaving. I can't wait to see more characters. The guy with the yellow-and-blue mask looks intriguing. Wonder if he's going to be a rival for Asta.

4/5

I love the manga, but the pacing is terribly slow for a fast paced show such as this. Plus they haven't even introduced Yami yet.

I think my favorite part about this show is Asta asking Lily to marry him every 5 minutes. Lily is really attractive. I also like the message of anyone can be anything. I've always been a bit of a sucker for underdog stories.

So far this is just ok. Nothing too special at the moment, it's been a little boring in fact. But I'm still interested on seeing where this goes.

Week after week the quality of this show seems to go downhill. I dread to think what will become of it at the end. I know nothing about the manga but anime is not an incentive to check it out. Characters so far are boring/annoying, comedy is very weak and the whole is just too slow. Not sure if I will stick with it in the long run.

I actully like it. The pacing is fine. Its just that the one week wait is annoying because a show like this usually takes a season or 10-15 episodes to get up on its feets.

I think I get used to Asta's voice. It still is noticeable but doesn't hurt my ears so much as in previous episodes.

Animation got a little worse I suppose. One thing I noticed a lot were awful necks of characters. It got my attention for some reason.

Putting that aside I liked the episode. Asta and Yuno are real rivals now. From the last episode I expected that reason for Yuno development was looking up to Asta. I don't get it why so many people expect Asta to fail.

I'm starting to like this series. 4/5 episode.

If they were a little quicker on episode 1, and as a result, finished the fight in the first episode => we could have started episode 2 with the "farewell and travel" (for 3 minutes) and then going straight to the Magic Knights Entrance exam.

It's not like the "flashback" of episode 2 was useful and the fight at the beginning of this episode was lame.

So, yeah, roughly 2 "useless" episode out of 3 :)

It's kinda boring, but if it's true that this is going to have 51 episodes, I'm gonna watch until episode 15 or so and if it turns bad I'm gonna drop it.

A comment about yelling...

At first I wasn't bothered by the yells, but on the third episode, I think I am starting to understand. It's not just about him yelling a lot, its about yelling when its not needed. At the end of normal sentences. This fault does not lie on the whole on the voice actor though, but also on the director of the series, who okay-ed all of this. I think that this series would benefit greatly from an occasional "Yosh" or "Haaa" or any other variation of screaming. I think however now that our feedback has been given it will take a couple of episodes before it gets implemented.

This anime is full of cliches but I really like the character design. I hope Asta can stop screaming every 5 seconds as the story goes on.

The next arc looks really nice, i hope that Asta will become strong because i don't want to end this anime while he is still weak, i want him to learn how to use his abilities.
Looking forward to this tournament arc.

honestly! It gets annoying when he screams for no reason at all! it would be better if his screaming could be controlled, I would still feel his determination
