Felt very much like I was watching a variant between Naruto and Boruto. Though Asta is a little bit more abrasive than those two (even has that inner monster/beast within). If this turns out to be anything like Part 1 Naruto, then I'm all in.

The church piqued my interest the most in this premier. As this is a world filled with magic, I wonder what type of religion is being practiced there; and if that religion is somehow tied into magic. The outfits of the priest and nun are reminiscent of Christianity. I doubt it'll have much focus on the show, but I hope some episodes provide more details.

I felt like I was watching Naruto part 1 English dubbed...but it was a Japanese dub...I was waiting to hear "Believe it!" Besides that terrible voice, it was alright. I mean, sure it was screaming Naruto and Sasuke every 2 seconds, but I guess I'll watch it a little bit longer to see if it pans out.

Wow.. this was terrible. I just don't even know what else to say. I mean, I wasn't expecting much but this actually exceeded my expectations in the worst possible ways. At least it doesn't look terrible? Insta-drop right here.

Asta's VA is awful for the majority of the episode. It was a lot better towards the end when Asta wasn't screaming. The yelling from the VA is too nasaly and too deep. I'll still watch the series, but I know I'll be fast forwarding through a lot of Asta's lines.

But I think we can all agree, that Asta's screaming is super annoying and really just unnecessary.
The characters look good, their designs look cool, but as of right now, they are just cliche Shounen characters, I sincerely hope they get some kind of development, because otherwise they are going to be bland as heck.


They don't


Well crap



Don't listen to FMB, I've seen him blindly hate on Black Clover in the past quite a few times. They do, I read the manga...lol.


Hate... I read it lol... It is what it is. They really don’t develop that much though. They have like 2 characters that come later on, but that’s it IMO. It is what it is my man. Still think hungry joker got axed to soon, but whatever. I don’t think it is good if that makes me a hater and I never get upset about what other people like. Also I can list logical reasons why I don’t think it’s good besides it’s generic.

Seems like it will be a good generic shounen battle in a good way. But god that fucking main character voice acting. I hope he just shuts up and fights things now. It's like English Naruto's "Believe it" but on Japanese steroids

Episode 1
Asta's yelling got annoying fast. I hope now that he has magic he can tone it down a bit.
I loved the parts with the gilmores coming down and choosing their masters

I liked it. Enough to add to my queue. Voice didn't annoy me that much.

Look forward to seeing the next episode.

Then state that's your opinion to begin with, don't put a statement out there like it's a fact, because it's not. Interesting how you go from "They don't." to They really don't develop that much." Which one is it? Characters like Asta and Noelle are probably the two you're referring to, yes? Understandable, they are the two who have gotten the most after all. I can think of many more though.



Little development or not, they're still getting some and you're forgetting we're only a little over 100 chapters into Black Clover. I know I'm bringing another manga into this, but even Naruto took a while to demonstrate incredible development. Hell, they were still in the Chunin exams for crying out loud by its 100th chapter. Now, it's hard to tell which read you used. I'm assuming it was used in a past tense since you think Black Clover isn't good...right? Which chapter did you drop it at out of curiosity?

I know the bandwagon is crowded at this point, but if Asta doesn't learn to use an indoor voice, I'm not gonna make it past a couple episodes. I get it, he's fired up, but I can't do a season of the screaming.

Otherwise I'm not looking for a lot of originality, but it could be fun.

6/10 for me. MC's voice was super grating and annoying. I hope Japanese feel the same way and it gets toned down for the rest of the series. Like nails on chalkboard

I'm glad I am not the only one that had bloody eardrums. Sheesh that was painful. It was like an arduous trek to get through those 20 minutes. This would be really interesting if it wasn't for the constant cringe inducing hell cries from the MC. Lets all cross our fingers that the Japanese feel the same way we do and talk some sense into the director into redubbing Asta's voice work. I'm sure those decibels were beyond what any human can take.

Thank god I have bad hearing. Having Asta's VA yell every line of dialogue is annoying as hell. I mean literally, except for that moment of inner monologue where he was about to despair.

I am intrigued though, but this is the biggest flaw. Making him obnoxious, immature, and inconsiderate just drives the knife further. The line about him wanting to prove his worth only comes off as egotistical, without the later mention of wanting to prove that greatness isn't determined by social status or magical prowess, which felt a bit inserted (And by that, yelled it). We need a bit more subtlety with that idea, but it isn't bad. Naruto is lauded for having a sympathetic goal of becoming a Hokage, while Asta mostly appears to want to justify his arrogance. I hope they add a tinge of sympathy to him.

Other than that, not to much for me to hate. The idea of having to train physically in a world where magical prowess rains supreme is interesting, but I wonder what the demonic grimoire that materializes is. I hope it keeps in line with some disadvantage at heart, otherwise this story just subverted its own premise.

I think I may wait for the dub of this. Asta is that bad imho.

So much hype about this show.

So far not impressed. First episode pretty much had me wishing it was over super fast and that I already miss The Seven Deadly Sins so much.
