You mean the voice acting or the concept? Because if it's the voice acting, I can assure you that Asta's voice being annoying is the general consensus among virtually everyone who has heard him.

it's too soon to tell, but I don't believe it will be. sure it's new, but it won't be the cat's meow like it might be for others. I've seen too much stuff, including true greats, so it won't be the best of the best to me. it won't mean much until they dub it, that's when it'll get a green light, since I know few who won't watch things subbed, their lost if you ask me.

Meant to start this in the poll forum, can somebody please move it?

Apologies. Not trying to violate the rules, honest mistake.


Done. As mentioned by another, you can report your own post and ask to have a thread moved, in case we don't notice it.

Not gonna sugarcoat this, you have a terrible way of judging whether or not people care about a series. Both Death Note and GitS are almost always brought up as the greatest anime of all time, they're not unpopular just because the people who are already fans don't watch them constantly. No shit people are going to watch or read a series more while it's ongoing than when it's finished, that doesn't mean it lacks longevity, it just means they've already read or seen it.


Call it what you want, it still an opinion, duh! and on a side note, I never said Death Note's popularity is totally running of gas or something, did I? but GITS's tired and dwindling popularity doesn't look very hot afaik when there are old manga series, more popular ones, pushing their limits so far.

One more thing, Black Clover's popularity isn't pushing it's limits or reaching its peak anytime soon. Only few anime can compete tirelessly for popularity.

Depends on whether or not Asta shrieks less within the next episode or two.

It has potential, but Studio Perriot will somehow fuck it up

No but i suppose it has potential, in its own way.

the voice acting for asta is unbearable

concept seems p good tho


You got that right. Asta's habit of saying "Marry me!" to Sister Lily, it started to get annoying and boring. At least that's something i won't hear for a while, i hope.

Yeah I also sorta liked the concept behind it but in no way enjoyed the execution.

Someone in the BC thread suggested (or perhaps I inferred) that this really is a show designed mainly for kids, possibly quite young kids. This is perhaps why the pace is so slow, the jokes repetitive and silly. Also kids have silly loud voices so the whole thing wont bother them.

Personally I just feel this is a basic ass shonen specifically for kids, perhaps not so much in the manga, however it certainly seems that how Studio Perriot are marketing/designing/directing/presenting it.

I don't watch Black Clover, not that I care about new anime anyway. I doubt that people will care about this anime in the long run. Look at Ghost in the Shell, time has passed and nobody cares about the series anymore. Look at how Death Note went from totally popular to relatively popular (ask my brother and I don't see him devoting his time to reading or watching Death Note anymore). Very few anime will achieve both popularity and longevity for generations to come.

Octo thank you for this reply! Sooo many people I know love the hell outta Ghost in the Shell and watch it repeatedly, I certainly have watched both (two, more? cant remember) series and loved them.

I am always watching season 1 of Death Note I love it so much.

Also if these were REALLY dead - No one would be making flipping full length films of them FFS!

You really are not an omnipotent being, these series do well on Netflix and other services and I'm sure plenty of us watch on Blu Ray.

Anyway sorry for Off Topic - just - grrr!

Probably not since it doesn’t seem to be a long-running anime.

But, so far, I love the show
