    I am a bit conflicted - while I am happy we'll be getting a lot more animated
    like Castle Town Invasion, Yami vs Licht and maybe possibly Water Temple arc
    I am worried cause I have heard about what Pierrot did to TSE.

    As a TSE fan I don't think you should worry. At the very least they should not go full anime original since it's from WSJ and they want to promote it.

    basically i learned that i will never trust pierrot on any kind of project they do .... they must ruined it somehow somewhere .. anyways iam up to date with the manga and its much much enjoyable so idc ... 51 ep with this level of animation naah i dont think pierrot will do it but if they do i will take that back ( iam not sure they will )
    the thing i want to know ... why so much people hating this series just because they heard some people said its sux so they say its sux and stick with it without even giving it a try or with their mind only focused on the hate they dont even watch to enjoy they watch to hate ....everywhere i go there is alot of comments and hates and craping on the series .. even MHA started as a generic shonen and they took its own way its one of the best shows i watched and up to date with the manga as well .... stop hating and give it a chance xD ......well i dont know any more

    Because Asta is annoying af, the premise is cliche and don´t have anything original, Asta's voice is annoying, the humor is dumb and really like to repeat the same joke 3 or 4 times, the pacing (in the anime) is sloooow, etc etc.
    This show has nothing special, is a Fairy Tail/Naruto clone that is just boring, I already read the manga and it's just as bad, but at least Asta doesn´t have a voice there.

    I've watched 1& 2nd episode, i don't read the manga but i've read the 1st couple of chapters and i skim regulary through some chapters, Im really not a fan of BC as a manga, so wanted to try the anime.
    I did find actually the opening very nice. I expected my ears to be raped considering all the comments i came accross, yes Asta is boring and yelling way too much, but surprisingly i could put up with that (his voice is fine when he's not yelling, actually megumi from Shokugeki no souma voice hurt my ears way more than Asta, its too high pitched & too irritating, too bad i like her as a character, here's a sample
    :p).
    I didn't find anything specially wrong in this anime and nothing exceptionnal so far, so normally I should have enjoyed those episodes, i can't explain why but I couldn't, tbh i found it maybe bland, savorless, lacking something don't know what , or maybe because of the rehashed tropes.[​IMG]

    It's pretty tolerable adaptation so far, aside from Asta's voice, even that is specifically the "MADA DA!" thing. If they drop that I think his voice is fine.

    I just hope it's not to late to drop that. Because I will not make it through 5 episodes of him doing that like he did it the first one. I cannot and I will not torture my eardrums to that degree.

    Does that mean 51episodes in total? As in, even if the manga keeps going, we're not going to get it animated?

    It only means what it says. A 51 episode series is very unusual nowadays, but when it happens I welcome it. There could be more, if the ratings warrant it.
    In fact if the ratings were good enough it would go in perpetuity, even if they ran out of source material.
    I don't expect that though. Usually, it stops after the 51 episodes because they run out of story by then.
    I haven't read Black Clover so I don't know how much they have to play with, but if there is more good material and demand for it, it could be extended.

    Thank you Wowzers, I normally just watch animes when it gets released. I don't get into stuff like this, but I wanted to know so that if it meant there will definitely only be 51, regardless of popularity/reception, I would know whether or not to waste my time on it.

    Black clover currently has 13 volumes with 9 floating chapters and a light novel, so I wouldn't worry to much on them running out of source material any time soon.

    I feel like there would be lots of fillers in 51 episodes. Maybe I should wait for like 20 episodes first.

    Hmm, I think I'm not too much of a fan of Asta's catchphrase....
    Then again this is a Shounen and catchphrases are at the order of the day, so let's leave it at that I guess.
    Now that we saw the two boys' past, I suppose it's time for the true adventure to begin!

    This episode was really good this week and it was a nice set up for the Magic Knights Entrance Exam. It also brought some closer to something as a manga reader I was curious about knowing in a little better detail.

    My favorite episode so far. But two things annoyed me: Asta's repeat that he will be Wizard King too much, I am already tired of this. I also don't like how much they like to show that Yuno is amazing while Asta sucks. I know that dep down they support him but it's tiresome and it's not like they were giving him word of encouragement either. No wonder he is so attached to Sister Lily(though it was apparently love at first sight :XD).

    How heavy is his sword? I know he trains his body daily but still, seeing him moving so easily with it is rather astonishing.

    Just some random figuring I've done. Realistically speaking a 1.2 meter long sword, 50 cm wide at the blade and suba, and a 3 cm diamater handle would put the sword around 4.5/6.8 kilos. In manga terms I'd place it closer to 13.6/18 kilos. So it's a pretty heavy sword especially since most of it's weight is focused closer to the handle.

    I saw the third.

    Another filler episode, but it did not bother me though since it covers a part that the manga has skipped.

    In the next they will finally rejoin the manga and will present us the interesting characters.
