THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
As slow as the pacing of this show is, they did decide what some of the candidates' teams will be.

Yami gave me the chills this episode. For Asta, he still wants to follow his dreams and manages to land a spot in the Black Bull squad. Glad to see Yuno put Sekke to his place. That guy really annoyed me.

Woo this will only get better from here. Great episode today and Yami was 10/10 with that pressures, can't wait to see the rest of the Black Bull introduced.

A much better place episode. The pacing is slow as it's pretty much confirmed that they're going to make this a long running series.

The fight animations look good, even though we only got a little taste of them. The bigger fights are going to come later and it'll be fun to see how they look on screen.

God, I love Yami.

Decent episode, OSTs and feeling were pretty good,but the animation was lacking.

Nothing unexpected happened,Yuno showed off and got offers from all squads,while Asta struggled to get into one,even tho they explained the reason for that I thought it was kinda stupid that they let the guy who was owned by him join a squad without any trouble.

You see, Asta getting thrown around screaming like an idiot was oddly funny to me this episode XDDD

This is definitely getting better now, the squad Asta could join is a fun bunch even though they don't seem to be the smartest lol

Yuno kicking Ba-hah's ass was pretty satisfying.

Decent episode.

So was Asta the only one the Bulls recruited or did they just not show the others?

I think... this is actually getting better or more interesting (and I'd have a better experience if the dub would catch up to where it is now, since I still hate Asta's voice). Little by little, it's getting better or more interesting. I think.

I'm also happy that this exam arc thing didn't last too long, unlike so many other tournament-like arcs. :)

As expected, Yuno wiped the floor with his opponent and received offers from every squad, while Asta didn't get a single offer but then got an opportunity at the last minute to join a squad.

I liked seeing a brief glimpse of Yami's power, seeing him fight someday should be a treat. The Black Bulls seem like an interesting group, so being introduced to the rest of them should be fun.

It was very satisfying as well to see Yuno scare off Sekke, he was an annoying sore loser.

The episode was good, much better than the previous ones. I'm glad the pacing is slow as the pacing in the manga is extremely fast causing you to miss out on important details.

Can't wait for the new arc to start, one of my favourites in the series.

Also for those complaining about Asta's VA don't worry the screaming calms down a bit but he still has a habit of doing it every now and then.

Another decent episode. Yuno defeating his opponent was nice to see.

Looking forward to seeing The Black Bulls and more of Yami.

Yami is easily one of the best characters in the series, his intimidation was on spot.

Nice episode.

Pretty cool seeing Yuno beat his opponent.

Loved the part where Asta showed his conviction to Yami. Glad he was offered a spot to join. :)

I noticed Pierrot tried to do what Bones did with BnHA episode 2 in this episode by trying to play a flashback of what was probably going through Asta's mind when he was finally accepted. It was a nice touch but I will say that BnHA's version is better since it was much more impacting. xD

Things should get fun now that Asta's finally with the Black Bulls.

The pacing is quite slow, and the battle between Yuno and his opponent is so underwhelming. However this episode seems better overall than the other previous ones. I expect the story to go a bit faster and more breathtaking combats to occur.

It feels kinda disturbing. Between the feeling for getting picked or not, and standing right in front of Yami.
Whichever it is, both Yuno and Asta really get "recruited" by the Squads that I guess suits them best.

Asta's training will be fun to watch, and it will be interesting to watch how Yuno deals with other members of his squad.

YAMI IS HAWT

Yeah, he's my favorite already.
The art not being consistent with his physique is annoying though, as huge as possible please!
loljk

But yeah, his design is so far the best (We don't see that many bara characters in anime) and his VA is 10/10

That music at the end of each episode is still perf.
Finally started enjoying this show.

It was because he can't fly. The others had to get there on their own.

For the key visual of the series and the opening (and the last episode too, tbh), it was obvious Asta was going to join to the Black Bulls, but it's okay, is probably the order whom he kida fits more, apart that the other captains looks too snobbish to stand him, let alone made him join to his orders, unlike someone like Yami.
About Yami is really cool, he didn't do anything very impressive, but he looks like someone who will kick a lot of asses later.

Now that Asta has officially joined to a knight order, let's see how the show will progress.

A decent episode. Yuno brutally defeated his opponent and got offers from every squad. Asta didn't get a single offer at first, but got one at the last minute. He joins the Black Bulls. Yami is an awesome character. His intimidation was great. Yuno scaring off Sekke was nice to see. He's such a sore loser.

Yunos fight didn't feel that exiting ... :/
Well Asta go to into the black bulls... which was pretty obvious. Did Yami only get one person!? Mhmmm I guess since it's the "worst" magic knight squad, people who only got an offer for him rejected? Idk or maybe he's just picky

ALSO DID THAT BOI NOT WASH HIS HANDS!!!!

You're trying too hard here. Natsu was already in the Fairy Tail guild when the anime started and there was no exam either IIRC.

That's conclude the exam arc. The moment when Yami told Asta to become the Emperor King was quite emotional. Also liked what Yuno did to Sekke, that guy couldn't even accept that he is a loser lol.

Wouldn't even compare Black Clover to Fairy Tail, I would compare it to Naruto. The only thing Black Clover has in common with Fairy Tail is magic.

I got yu gi oh-esque vibes from this anime; standing there shouting out moves (cards) with their grimoires (duel disks) the only exception being with asta. It pales in comparison to naruto, and the look of the moves they use is so bad, "its cringey"

if this really is gonna be a long running anime they seriously need to improve that.

you cant really compare it, since it feels like a mash up of generic shounen anime; (its understandable if you find this relatable to fairy tail, naruto etc. etc.)

Why is everyone such a dick in this universe. I think I heard the word "boonies" a couple dozen times in just this episode alone.

So many hilarious moments because of Asta. Glad a captain chose him and it's the buff man. Though, it's already evident from the get-go that yeah someone's gonna choose him, but I still felt bad for him that he thought he's done for.

Yuno was challenged by that noble guy from the noble family. Pffft. Of course, my cinnamon roll Yuno will win. Hello!?! Hahaha. And all the captains wanted him to be under them. Slay, Yuno, slay!

So happy for them two they get to be in their respective squads and Yuno joined the Golden Dawn which apparently can only be joined by royalty and nobles, but the Captain wanted him, so yeah he went for that and his reason was the best path to becoming the Wizard King. Omedetou, Yuno-kun.

Asta describing his poop to Black Bulls' captain. "It was looooong and huge" Hahahahahahah! I hate him so much. I love his screamings now. Idk why. I considered it a miracle.

I just realized how cool the ED was. I need it on my phone. Haha.

Great episode and the comedy really made me laugh my ass off. 5/5. <3

P.S. Shut up, haters!

Compared with the last two episodes, this one was quite better. Still, the pacing is very slow, but I think that Asta's interactions with the members of the Black Bulls will be entertaining to watch.

Isn't it backwards logic when the guy he crushed said "You're poor. You can't be the Wizard King. Life isn't that simple." If life wasn't that simple, then the Wizard King wouldn't be solely from the wealthy class.
