No, not even close, has a long way to go. The first few episodes so far are stretched out with only a few interesting scenes.

At this point obviously over-hyped.

Given some of the drek that Crunchyroll has put their name on or heavily promoted in the past, I would suggest that everyone take their "recommendations" with a grain of salt. That's not to say that they're always wrong but their recommendations aren't always guided by quality.

This show made my ears bleed and my brain shrink. Pure drivel.

Hyping it as "the new king of shounen" only damages the site.

Tooooo early to tell. Early indications is a no. It doesn't have enough comedy relief to even come close.

Each episode is better than before. It gets good with episode 4.

It always has potential to be. I sure would never have guessed that Naruto would be the biggest shonen ever by episode 4-5 lol. It was pretty low effort even lol.

No, Hell no. But I'm gonna keep watching at least until the end of the arc to get an idea where the rest of it is going because it's a long running anime, but so far, it's kind of lame, the action scenes are boring, the characters just stand still in front of each other and just let their magic do the work while trying to look cool, only Asta's scenes are interesting because he can't use magic and uses a sword instead of a book, which is very fucking lame, honestly, who thought books were cool??

I like it, I think it is going to end up being better than people think. Also, One Piece sucks.

I'm on the fence. I'm still interested but it really needs to pick up the pace a bit and the MC really needs to stop the annoying yelling.

Hell no. It's garbage. Really didn't think the MC could be as annoying as everyone said but my worst fears were confirmed.

He was MORE annoying than I could ever hope to expect.

0/10 Black Clover is worse than SAO

animenewsnetwork.com/daily-briefs/2017-11-05/black-clover-anime-listed-with-5-box-set-releases-in-japan/.123552. A Japanese BD or DVD vol. is usu. about 1/2 those prices and usu. contains 2 episodes, but will have 3-4 episodes if the companies are nice. I am perhaps wrong with assuming so, but I take that it that those boxsets hint at 20-24 episodes.

The story is interesting, the characters are somewhat likable. I'm glad I'm not the only one that isn't a big fan of how they voiced the main character. It feels way too forced with the yelling. And I thought the whole "I'm your rival" and "I'm going to be the Wizard King" just doesn't draw me in the way I feel it is trying to.

The character design and art are pretty cool, but the way the show is actually animated, in my opinion, is terrible. There are a few good scenes of course, but there seems to be a lot of meh also.

It kind of reminds me of World Trigger,or Arslan, two anime I liked despite cringing at the animation. They took a good idea but let it fizzle with the implementation. Those were decent anime that could have been so much more. The quality of Black Clover is better, but still leaves me wanting.

Sorry if this post seems critical. I'm not trying to poo poo stuff. I tend to have unique tastes.
