Black Clover Shares New Theme Song and Casting Additions
Black Clover has been running since 2017 as an anime with over a hundred episodes under its belt, documenting the adventures of Asta and his journey to attempt to become the Wizard King. Much like franchise My Hero Academia, Asta is attempting to become the greatest magic wielder in the world even though he was born without magic himself, much like Midoriya before inheriting All Might's quirk. Now, as the anime show continues, the series has revealed a new theme songs as well as some additional voices to add to the roster.

With the Reincarnation Arc in full swing, Asta and his friends are in quite a terrible predicament as they fight against the Magical Knights that have been possessed by the elves. Devil, the main antagonist to the Knights has recently been introduced, so expect even more troubles to come to the world of Black Clover as the arc continues to ramp up.

Yuki Tabata first created Black Clover for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2015. The popular series follows two young boys named Asta and Yuno who are growing up in a world where magic is everything. Asta, unfortunately, seems to have been born without magical powers while Yuno is a young prodigy whose magical powers rival that of the strongest magic users in the Clover Kingdom, the Magic Knights. The two young boys now strive to become the strongest wizard in the Clover Kingdom, The Wizard King. You can currently find the Japanese language version with English subtitles on Crunchyroll, and the English language dub can be seen on FunimationNow and Saturday evenings on Adult Swim's Toonami block.
