THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
So Asta is starting to connect more with his new teammates.

Well, I guess it won't be easy for him to make friends with Noel considering the way she's treating him already. To her, she believes Asta to be an "insect" an inferior. Not surprised given her family status.

Oh and we see that Noel can use water based magic. Personally, I don't like Noel's personality.

I feel like the animation got worse this episode or is it just me? i really hope the pacing quickens as the series progresses because there's only been 7 episodes and the pacing is already as bad as one piece.

The tsunedere love interest went from a royal poop head to a blushing sweet character the audience can sympathize with in less than half an episode.

Most pacing on this show is slow, but that progressed really fast.

I am still expecting complete tsunedere in the future, but I wanted more time to dislike her before I felt sorry for her and her sad past. That would have made the sad past reveal more powerful, imo.

Huge positive: her character design is really nice and beautiful

And here is the toilet

Yami: I'll kill you.

Love Yami's character.

I think this a retiring gaga in this series, we always see Yami in the dam toilet whenever something not serious is going on. Like 'Zora ja nai, Katsura Da' from Gintama.

pacing felt kinda weird here, I don't know but compared to the slow ass pacing from the last episodes this whole character development thingy in this one went pretty quick

and yeah great we got a tsundere now so we can check that on the tropes checklist

The first half where they ran around the castle was enjoyable. Made me chuckle a few times.
The second half was predictably boring.
Next episode looks fun though :)

I'm actually glad the thing of Noelle acting like a bitch due her being from the aristocracy has been resolved this episode. On another note, her design is cute and her voice is pretty nice.

I think I have already getting used to Asta screaming all the time for every damn thing. It's kinda hilarious, in a way.

Good that they didn't waste any time with solving the issues about Noelles insecurity, don't expect her to completely abandon her dere type,but it should get way better than what we got to see during the first half of the episode,that shit was unbearable, take Astas yelling over it any day.

Decent episode overall.

Just started reading the manga recently and as I assumed, they adapted chapter 5 in this episode (while also, not surprisingly, adding in some anime-original scenes).

I'm kind of glad this change in Noelle's character happened so quickly, I absolutely can't stand pompous, stuck-up royal characters (like sure you're royalty but you're still part of the shittiest group of Magic Knights so calm the fuck down a bit) so the faster she drops that, or at least tones it down, the better.

Poor Noelle, got rejected by the whole family (except her mother) just because she can't control her magic properly.. So, she's basically like Asta. They both get rejected by the society, but then they met the Black Bulls who love them no matter how bad they're at magic.

The extra scene was great lol, she's so cute.

It's funny how you put 'Zora' instead of 'Zura', because Zora is

Why is the pacing of this show so fucking slow? The manga moves at a blisteringly fast pace. Seems like Pierrot is worried about catching up to the manga riiiiiight at the start but in 51eps, they wouldn't catch up to the manga because the manga is more than 120 chapter in and the general rule is to adapt 2 chapters per episode.

I dislike Noelle, I didn't dislike her this much in the manga but I do in the show. I hope that changes soon.

I hate when shounen anime does unnecesary recap and consumes 4 fucking minutes of a 23 minutes episode that ends being at much 18 minutes of actual episode, with 8 minutes of relevant story.

Rant Aside, this anime is flooding with cliché after cliché xD, kinda surprised that Asta just got in there and now has a girl on his knees lmao, Yami is carrying the show atm

Good episode.

The tour of the Black Bulls 'castle' was hilarious. Yami in the toilet is a gold moment. XDD

Noelle initially comes of as stuck up royalty but the truth is she's been mocked by her own family for being unable to control her powers.
Yami straight out throwing Asta at Noelle's berserk power was hilarious. xD

Loved the final moment when the Black Bulls told her, they'd accept her even if she was flawed since they were all a group of failures anyway. Pretty heartwarming scene. :)

The post credit skit was adorable. XD

Finally, Noelle makes her appearance, Perriot has done a great job on her I have to say. This should be fun

The one downside to this episode was that they could have put more effort on her "development", from being a complete asshole to blushing and calling Asta
by his name. To quick for normal audience that haven't read the manga

The tour of the Black Bulls castle was funny. Yami in the toilet was the best part. I'm glad Noelle changed from a spoiled brat to a rather likable character. I dislike characters like her. She can't control her magic powers and her family mocked her for it. The Black Bulls accepting and willing to help her was nice.

So it's just like the OP shown. Asta, for now get along with his Senpai but yet with mrs (tsundere) colleague. I bet this will be so exciting to wait for another week and see what Asta will do for helping Noelle. xD

Damn why are all the rich people assholes... like when are we going to get the shy, embarrassed character from the nobility? " It a waste using this room on you!" SHUT THE FUCK UPPPPPPP *taser noise*! Jesus its all little too much elitism...

I thought that Noelle would be the shy character since that other asshole told her she could take the test... BUT NO SHE HAS TO TURN AND CALL ASTA AN INCEST! Also I guess she not that good at magic?

Anyways I like the episode but, the elitism is getting to the point where it's not helping the show :/

now I know why Asta doesn't have any mana or magical power.
it's basically because his magic is "anti-magic", which nullify any magic. am I right?

Oh... I guess what the opening showed happened a lot earlier and was way less dramatic than what I expected.

Is this all there is to it? Does she ever ends up trapping herself again?

Funny you saw the pacing was super fast because they only adapted 1 chapter and tried to pad the episode with anime original material like the first four minutes after the opening. Anyways, That's the problem with Black Clover's manga and especially in the first few volumes. The story moves way too fast and each chapter packs too much content.

I swear this anime keeps getting better after each episode. I just don't understand why it's so low-rated. Forgodsake. Hating on the anime in general just because of the seiyuu is just so fucking ridiculous. I hate y'all!

Anyhoo, this episode got a lot of gems and I sincerely don't want it to end. Fortunately, this will have 51 episodes, so fuck yeaaah.

Asta is so precious this episode. Him being so happy having his own room. Haha. Him and Magna-san's shenanigans this episode is just too much. I love Magna-san's base tour for Asta. Their base got a lot of weird shit. I love it. Lmao.

Asta and Yuno wrote their family at the church a letter and they couldn't believe Asta passed. Hahaha. Asta is in the Black Bulls which is called the worst squad, but it's got the best people. Meanwhile, Yuno's in the most acclaimed squad, but it's got assholes. Poor Yuno. Naaah, I bet he'll prove to them assholes that he's better than them all combined. Lmao. Watch your sorry asses.

Tbh, I was so annoyed by Noelle at first, but I immediately felt bad for her when it was shown how shitty she was treated by her family and how much they belittled her. Fuck them. The way the Black Bulls welcomed her really made me happy. You're with the great people, girl. :') I somehow can see it coming that Noelle will fall in love with Asta. Huehue.

Great episode throughout. Loved it. :)

Shinomiya senpai is a dick to Sasuke. My god there's two Asta's now. Man, a changing building sounds cool, but getting around would be a bitch. Main love interest has entered and she's a condescending bitch, as princess would be.
She also went to storm trooper school. Her and Tyrion would get along great. Luckily a situation occurred where Asta's lack of magic came in handy. Really expected her to be tsuntsun for a lot longer than 5 minutes, I guess it's good.

One of the favorite episodes so far, the in episode battle/action themes are shaping up to be solid as well. Looking forward to continued growth.

The entire first half could have probably been cut out. Thankfully they didn't drag out the tsundere's introduction, so we might actually get somewhere next episode.

Noelle is one of if not the most adorable heroine who had her snubbish personality from the peeps around her..
Really hope the ship will Sail Asta X Noelle <3

SO himedere girl gets her episode. Her trope has been done to death already. Tsundere princess. At least her first character arc didn't drag. She will make the show insujfferable if she doesn't drop the holier-than-thou act. Looks like she will.

This episode was alright but ASTA PLEASE SHUT THE FUCK UP

The fact that Noelle is this cute afterwards I kinda like her. Not gonna lie.

The dynamic between her and Asta wouldn't be the best but the way they are similar because of their issues (in itself) was actually nice.

Loved how they more focused on developing the characters or just giving some decent idea about them despite the characters not being strong. Hopefully if the entire thing gets better I might give it a decent score.

and yeah, the pacing is so slow but that character development in just one episode is a little bit unsatisfying.

I don't like any character...Noelle....fuck her....taking your anger out on others even though it's your own damn fault? This is gonna sound really cruel, but I have to admit, her brother is right. At least she made up with Asta pretty quick.

Asta sure looks good in his new uniform. Asta's reactions are completely throwing off the others though thats for sure. Man the difference between bases is like night and day and its reflected in the mentors that they have as well. So thats how mail is delivered in this world. The reaction at the church that Asta passed though was hillarious. Never expected Noelle to be part of the royal family though. Noelle is as arrogant as the rest of her family is i see. I guess poor aim is what offsets her mana capacity. Noelle's fear of being scolded caused her to lose control of her magic how unusual. Nice to see that the magic was nullified because anyone got hurt though. Noelle really fears getting scolded though thats for sure. The declaration of unity in the end was nice though. In such a squad no one cares about one failure. Looks like Noelle's attitude would start to change for the better after this event.

Does this anime legitimately have a fan base somewhere? It feels like some kind of board of executives who doesn't understand anime picked this show from a hat and decided this needs to be the next big thing. Between the crunchyroll movie thing, the entire year of episodes, and the constant ads, it's being pushed so hard.

Me and my roommate started watching it as a joke, now we do it to torture ourselves more than anything else. It goes beyond the F tier MC's seiyuu. The plot is completely uninspired and so trope filled it feels like they're intentionally trying to hit EVERY single one. Any scenes i thought might end up being hype fall flat due to poor directing as well as mediocre animation (Yuno's exam fight? Holy crap that was bad).
