    Discussion Mokushiroku no Yonkishi by Suzuki Nakaba

    It's cool how the group is not just using the terrain to their advantage but also utilize distractions, spells and strategy. Unfortunately for them, the knight looks like he's going to tank the combo attack pretty easily thanks to his armor. In NNT everyone was so strong that armor offered about...

    Discussion Black Clover Chapter 315 Spoilers & Discussion

    The translation is out. https://onepiecechapters.com/chapters/272/black-clover-chapter-315 This chapter feels like Tabata is just going through the motions to get from point A to B. Not a particularly exciting start to what looks to be the final battle of the arc, but it can still be salvaged...

    Discussion Mokushiroku no Yonkishi by Suzuki Nakaba

    The chapter is out. https://cubari.moe/read/imgur/PKlOipK/1/1/ All this focus on Sin is strongly hinting that his identity is about to be revealed. The odds of that happening in this arc were already quite good because of how many enemies there are, but this just reinforces that possibility...

    Black Clover Chapter 314 Spoilers & Discussion

    Yes, but not in this arc. The focus here was on the Dark Triad and their actions in Spade, while Morris' character has always been centered around his influence back in his home kingdom of Diamond. We first learned of the experiments he had conducted on children all the way back in the dungeon...

    Black Clover Chapter 314 Spoilers & Discussion

    Lucifero using the bodies of the low and mid ranking devils to manifest himself is pretty much what I was expecting. It wouldn't really make sense for him to emerge out of the 2nd gate with his real body since that would go against everything we were told about the Qliphoth. This also means...

    Discussion Mokushiroku no Yonkishi by Suzuki Nakaba

    It seems like the mystery of the arrow that killed Talisker's fairy creature has finally been solved. I'm not sure how he can shoot arrows, but based on the dialogue between him and Gowther it was almost certainly Sin's doing. I guess if Sin is the knight with no fixed appearance then he might...

    Black Clover Chapter 313 Spoilers & Discussion

    Just saying 'no' isn't much of a counterargument, but I'll explain my reasoning anyway so that you and others can see where I'm coming from. Here are a few factors that detail the massive role that the devils have in the series as a whole: 1) The devils have been a central element in the story...

    Black Clover Chapter 313 Spoilers & Discussion

    I'm also a bit disappointed that we didn't get to see characters like Fuegoleon, Dorothy and the elves do much in this arc, but at the same time I think that it's about time for this battle to wrap up. Tabata making Lucifero himself come out of the 2nd gate makes for an impressive finale and...

    Discussion Mokushiroku no Yonkishi by Suzuki Nakaba

    I enjoyed the chapter. Ardbeg got to see his daughter again and unlike what happened with her, this time he wasn't too late to save the girl. It's a relatively happy end for him all things considered. I also liked how Nakaba made Gowther's powers seem more intimidating to new readers by not...

    Discussion Mokushiroku no Yonkishi by Suzuki Nakaba

    I would have preferred for him to debut in the manga first, but it's not a huge deal. And to be fair, he might look different in the actual series since it's not clear when this movie is actually taking place. He should be ~16 in the sequel, but for all we know the movie could be set a couple of...

    Discussion Mokushiroku no Yonkishi by Suzuki Nakaba

    I suppose making a movie or two instead of a TV series means that they don't have to worry about the lack of available source material. It's a shame they're going with 3DCG though since it usually doesn't look very good especially in motion. If the action is going to be janky then the only...

    Discussion Mokushiroku no Yonkishi by Suzuki Nakaba

    An anime adaptation less than 40 chapters into the story? I have slightly mixed feelings about this. Not only have we only seen one of the titular Four Knights so far, but there haven't even been any good stopping points for the seasons. For comparison, season 1 of NNT ended with the Sins...

    Black Clover Chapter 312 Spoilers & Discussion

    The spread at the end is nice. This is the first time we've seen all the BBs together post-timeskip and it gives me the impression that the arc is at its climax. Perhaps the the entire BB squad will be the ones to defeat Lucifero when he manifests(presumably only partially), although something...

    Discussion Mokushiroku no Yonkishi by Suzuki Nakaba

    The elder being Gowther in disguise is what I was expecting, but I still found the pose amusing. I wonder if he will have a new design like Mel, Ban and Merlin or if he'll just look the same as always. We also learned that Ardbeg was indeed the father that lost his child, which means that the...

    Black Clover Chapter 311 Spoilers & Discussion

    I'm not surprised that the ritual still hasn't stopped since Nacht brought up that possibility at the start of the battle. He also mentioned the other option for shutting down the ritual, which is to destroy the Qliphoth with anti-magic, at the risk of killing Yami and William. I doubt either...
