    Black Clover's a very weird series It's a culmination of all sorts generic troprd but I haven't quite read a Shounen manga like it. it has this completely random sort of upping the stakes and event inflation where you'll have an arc culminating in the group fighting some random guy and then next chapter a whole bunch of new overpower bad guys turn up and then the overpowered friendlies turn up. You'll have one random adventure arc and then all out war next arc all of this without warning or foreshadowing, it just sort of happens. The good part is it doesn't have the sort of boring filler that normally occurs in the build of these events, conversely these events barely make sense and almost seem random, there's no emotional weight or tension to these events they just happen. It's entertaining in it's own way but I find it difficult to get attached to the characters and events or care about the plot when there's almost nothing there to sink into. I just tetter on the dredge on dropping it or not with the next random upping of the stakes keeping me along.

    Gotta give it to the author in that panel tho, seeing two MCs there kinda blowed my mind at the time sicne I didn´t remember the transformation chick ever been introduced even as someone else (though she was introduced in the early chapters i think).

    Still don't trust the emperor.

    I like Noelle, she just needs to pull a Mine and get with Aster already.

    What if the jewel in marth forehead is one of the magic stones? :brolmes
    seeing how they're collecting the stones i guess marth is going to make a return soon.

    I really like this dude.

    He's the only character I can legitimately say I enjoy seeing (Lightning Kid and Fuego aren't terrible either). Nice to see him back.

    This actually wasn't a bad chapter though. I'm kind cautiously mildly hyped to see more Diamond Kingdom characters. Looks like this is could be considered the series first "Big" arc.

    Diamond Kingdom War- 74-

    In comparison to some other Jump series.
    Large Scale Invasion- 44-85
    Dark Tournament- 52-112
    York Shin- 64-119
    Soul Society- 71-182
    Alabasta- 155-217
    Sayian- 195-252

    You can keep saying "all series are generic is some ways", but Black Clover continues to just blatantly lift everything for nor real reason and without any original use.
    The Licht twin reveal was kind of interesting though. It's still pretty dumb, but at least Vengeance wasn't straight up Licht even if they're closely related in some way (watch as they turn out to be just two of a family of genetically modified clone siblings).

    He wreck his arms via a cruse.

    Now follow me, curses are still a form of magic.
    why can't asta negate the curse via his anti magic sword. :hmm

    or, are there magic anti magic can't negate.

    also, what do you guys think happens when all the stones are collected?

    Next chapter he learns to wield the sword with his feet and cuts off the anti-magic curse.
    Also, they probably summons a dragon that allows them to make wishes.

    Because the damage is already done. It's not curse magic keeping his arms broken; it's the severity of the injuries
    Summon the super demon from the first chapter, or something monstrous like that

    This manga gets a lot of hate - and it truly is beyond generic - but screw it. It is entertaining the hell out of me. The fight against the big baddie in the underwater temple was one of the most fun teamwork fights I have read in a while.

    i understand how badly injured he got, but that shouldn't be anything a top healing mage can't fix especially something like broken arms. Maybe it's the curse that's preventing him from healing.

    after i reread a few chapters it was said that once someone collects all 7 they gain some super power. super sonic comes to mind:hmm

    joking, though it might turn them into that same monster thing from chapter one.

    And if it turns out one of them is actually a copy made from Magic, then it confirms Black Clover lifted from Fairy Tail.

    Still find it strange his anti magic sword can't negate the curse, everyone of the black bulls are looking for the cure for the curse or how to get rid of it, i guess we can say curse magic is something even anti magic can't negate.

    if this ends up actually being the case and his learning to eat with his feet a few chapters ago was foreshadowing then... well I don't know. I honestly still think there's a chance that's the case.

    Ok who the hell are these Fanzels and Mariellas? Never heard of them before in my life and the chapter makes it apparent we are meant to know them.

    Yeah, one of the manga volume covers actually connects with the light novel cover. Wish I could read it...

    EDIT 1: Here's the two covers together. Obviously, the light novel one is the cover with the unfamiliar characters.



    EDIT 2: Just read the last two chapters. Man, I actually like that Tabata is incorporating characters from the light novel. Also, fucking Gray. :catskully

    This seems to be one of those series where the lulls in action are like a chapter long. With this breakneck pace we don't even get a breather. I'm fine with that anyway, it is not like anyone is reading this for the story.

    Like all Black Clover characters shes' just a walking back of cliches and tropes. but she specifically almost reads like a parody of Tabata's characterizations.

    Well that was anticlimactic.

    But I have to say I am tired of these long drawn out plots of having to recover from seemingly irreparable damage so I am glad we aren't going to go through all the soap of him having lost his arms. Get back to what Black Clover does best: mindless fun action.
