Black Clover has launched the first major phase of the final arc of Yuki Tabata's manga series, and the newest chapter of the series has kicked things up a notch with a full on mission to save Asta! Lucius Zogratis finally made his move on the Clover Kingdom, and with it revealed just how much power is currently at his disposal. Unfortunately it was too much for Asta to handle with his first confrontation against the villain, and he suffered a major loss as a result. It got the Clover Kingdom worried about whether Asta truly has died, but his squad has yet to give up.
Not everyone in the kingdom is so sure of Asta's death, however, as the newest chapter of the series revealed how the Black Bulls responded to hearing news of his potential death. But given just how much all of them have been through in the series so far, the Black Bulls still believe Asta is out there somewhere. With Judgment Day kicking off in seven days time in the series, they have now begun their new mission to find him wherever he ended up.
Chapter 337 of Black Clover sees the Black Bulls Vice Captain Nacht returns to the squad's hideout and he tells him about the circumstances of Asta's supposed death. He tells them that they should assume Asta's dead, but also he still has a sinking feeling it's not possible because he has yet to see a corpse. It's the same for the rest of the squad as well as they all believe he's still okay. Now they're on a search to find out wherever he's ended up, and as fans know, he actually made it all the way to the Land of the Sun.
Ending up washed up on the shores of the country that Yami's originally from, Asta is now recovering from the fight with Lucius and potentially will be much stronger when he finally gets to reunite with the rest of his squad. The chapter also teases that he will begin a new training that will hopefully make him strong enough to last in a fight against Lucius next time, and now it remains to be seen how long it will take for all of them to reunite.
