    It's vague how long ago the first Magic Emperor fought the giant demon

    Mars is 19 at least

    Chapter 96. (http://mangastream.com/r/bclover/096/3993/1)

    I was liking this chapter. Legitimately. ...and then we got to the end, and all I could think was "Oh boy, here we fucking go with this shit..."

    On topic.

    this can really make or break the series, for the most part it was executed pretty good.
    having a transformation is one of the things that sticks out.

    dbz super sayian- a loved one die (started the trend in shonen)
    naruto nine tail- love one die (followed after)
    one piece gears- he learnt it from battle experience.
    Bha full crawl- he learnt it.
    hxh adult gun- love one die
    black clover- he gets his shit pushed in and a 3rd party person grants him some power.

    comparing to other shonen, it's not typical or predictable tbh.
    though it was never hinted that he was of any significant decent or that he had some hidden power.
    just that he had a book that gave him a anti magic weapon.

    the design looks pretty typical though.

    it uses a lot of the generic and repetitive shonen tropes and will remind you FT, One Piece or Nardo with the Nakama bullshit and shit

    although, it has few actual cool characters (Yami Sukehiro is the most badass from this series), it has average battles and the art is at least decent too

    but i read it mostly because i somewhat like the battles and the whole battle theme of this series

    I have to agree with this, the Power of friendship is none existent except for the skinny sword absorbing the magic power of One of his allies.

    I hope demon asta delivers the hype. This arc has kinda been boring to me and I really Dont care for the new characters since I'm not Japanese and have no access to the LN. Hopefully Tabata handles these next few chapters well.

    well i think it was pretty good he included his LN characters into the series, he kinda makes you want to look out for his LN so you don't miss out on extra lil bits of information.
    actually it makes you want to support the series even more.
    for me it ties in the background history of marth and his sister along with the diamond kingdom to a much clearer degree.
    Up until this point i thought Light novels weren't cannon to begin with.

    have to disagree, he's only been in a few major fights so far and none of them he gain some boost in his actual power from friendship.

    with lotus him and his team worked together to bringing him down.
    with marth it was teamwork until he found a new weapon that allowed him to borrow power from noelle? (for some odd reason, he never displayed that same trait again)
    with licht he was out of his leauge and yami had to step in.
    with vetto pure teamwork. (one of the best tag team efforts to date)
    with radols, teamwork.

    actually, now thinking about it. this series focus a hell of a lot around teamwork battles.
    which is kinda different :wha

    lotus and yami for me, mostly lotus due to his laid back no give a shit attitude.
    i believe he's really strong but due to his laziness, he falls of short.
    he almost snagged williams had yami not interfere.

    also, did anyone know. there's a king of the kingdom of clover who's might and power is equal of that of julius?

    people like to rip on black clover because they think the sorcery emperor and hokage are the exact equivalent.

    when in actuality, the sorcery emperor is just the highest ranking in the military of magic knights. their duty? to protect their king and the kingdom of clover.

    Hokages are like prime ministers or presidents that sit down all day doing paper work.

    they are two completely different roles.

    Yami vs Licht

    Luck vs Lotus/Luck and the others vs Lotus too

    Asta and the others vs Vetto

    Asta vs Mars (the 1st time)

    That was one of the best showcases of teamwork I've seen within the younger/newer manga.

    I can't remember the chapter where we're introduced to the guy above Julius.

    i don't recall anyone being introduced stronger than julius, the only possible person so far that's maybe stronger is the king of clover and that's a big maybe.

    strange enough only two kingdoms have been introduced so far.
    only two :psyduck
    the king of the diamond kingdom goal is eternal life and enhancements.
    the king of clover goal is to get laid every night. :lmao

    I didn't mean in power but rather rank. I remember seeing the panel where the King's shadow is shown, I just don't remember the chapter.

    Hope we get some more kingdoms soon. Here's an interview from Tabata.

    Only complaint would be so far into the story (I'm on chapter 60) is it feels a tad rushed.

    Other than that, I love it!

    Still don't know yet how i feel about asta new form.

    Well on a good note, he didn't follow through with the lose your shit transformation trend.
    i actually find the scene where he has this convo with the demon a mock of most shonen trends.

    demon " now it's my time to take over his body"
    asta "who the fuck is you"
    demon "ummmm, you damage me in the past"
    asta "Wow, wow there buddy, wtf are you trying to do"
    Demon " look, you want to beat this guy or not?
    asta "fuck outta here with that BS"

    Me
