If you are looking for more updates on Black Clover, then you won’t have to wait long. The show’s staff has said it will reveal more information about the anime at the Jump Victory Carnival 2017 event in Tokyo. The affair is set to go down on July 22 before it returns July 29 in Osaka.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Black Clover, then you still have some time to familiarize yourself with the series before its anime debuts. The series began in February 2015 when Weekly Shonen Jump began publishing Tabata’s story. Abroad, Viz Media has since started to publish the manga on its digital Weekly Shonen Jump anthology, and it has amassed a rather large fandom over the past year.
The show follows to characters named Asta and Yuno who were raised together at an orphanage in the Clover Kingdom. The world they live in is one where everyone has magical powers, but Asta defied the trend. For some reason, the boy was born with no powers unlike his friend who is a prodigy of sorts. Black Clover follows the friends as they compete with each other to become the country’s Wizard King once Asta is gifted with a rare sort of power known as Anti-Magic.
During its run, Black Clover has been compared to iconic shonen franchises like Fairy Tail and One Piece. The show’s adolescent cast, intense action sequences, and overt humor have left many enamored with it. The show’s fans will only increase when its anime goes live, and fans are already counting down the days until that happens.
Until Black Clover debuts, fans can keep up with the series through its ongoing manga. The publication has nine volumes already with more than 80 issues to its name. Black Clover is being headed up by Pierrot, the same studio behind shows like Naruto and Bleach. Tatsuya Yoshihara is directing the anime while Kazuyuki Fudeyasu oversees composition. Itsuko Takeda and Kumiko Tokunaga will acts as character designers.
