Thoughts on Black Clover?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.  I see rightstuf is currently having a sale and I was thinking of picking up black clover.  Is this a pretty good anime?

The series seemed to get quite a bit of criticism, mainly on 2 points: 1) it being a fairly generic shonen series & 2) the MC being annoying, especially his voice.  While I agree on both points and dropped it fairly early on, but there’s a very good chance I’ll give it another  try someday (certainly a better chance than Naruto or Radiant)

Thanks for the reply.  Yeah having done more research that seems the general consensus.  Think I'm going to skip this one.  Went ahead a bought 6 anime off my wishlist for $138.  I'm a pretty happy camper!

Well I just got word from rightstuf that they can't fulfill my Cowboy Bebop order!  I'm very disappointed to lose out on it.

Found it on crunchyroll's website but it cost me $40 instead of the $20 or so on rightstuf with the current deal they have going.

Sucks!  But I don't know how limited copies are so I jumped on it on crunchyroll.

I was actually going to make a topic asking about this anime. I was on Youtube last night and I was checking out different anime openings and I ended up watching some of the Black Clover openings. I thought it looked pretty cool. I might watch a few episodes just to see if I like it or not.

Watching it yourself will always be the best option.  Who knows, I've liked things that others haven't and didn't like things that others did before.  It's all a matter of taste.

It seems it isn't that many here that has seen the series, so as a person who has wasted a lot of time both watching the anime and reading the manga i'll talk a little about it. 

The show starts up slow, just building up the "universe" and the characters. So it may be pretty boring the first 12 or something episodes. But after a while, the story starts progressing, and there comes a lot of pretty good fights and new characters. But also as more you come into the series, the worse the animation gets, so if animation is a big factor for you, i do NOT recommend the anime for you.  The "frirst arc" of the series just ended as well.

So if you really want to experience the series, you should much rather read the series. The only good thing about the anime series, is some of the fights and all the openings.

I have been watching the anime and caught up to it recently. I think the whole arc around the Licht, Devil thing was really interesting. Generally I wouldn't say it is the greatest anime but it is entertaining as a general shonen.

I'm about 20 episodes in and it's one of those things that I know is garbage but I like it anyway for some reason lol. I feel the same about RWBY, not that the two are similar.
