mmm

Well So far I saw it at No 1 in the Popular section when on its release day and then it stays in the top 5 and then 10 on the Popular section throughout the week , so its definitely very popular but not the king.

In Japan . it has a time slot of 630 pm on a Wednesday while Buroto is at 530 pm on a Tuesday while Dragon Ball and One Piece is on Sunday. So the later 2 are always in the weekly top 10 in Japan. https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2017-11-02/japan-animation-tv-ranking-october-23-29/.123526

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.

What they say is box set. That means 10+ each set. Make that episode count 50.

When I say something is average, that's usually an indication that it is average.

Average

Definition in anime world.

Something that you instinctively know is not worth your time, only in a way where you wont make time for it, or would only consider making time for it if there is nothing to watch as you struggle to find something to do that will better fulfill your time.

That's what Black clover is.

Like if baruto, DBZ, yadda yadda, If they weren't showing, Black clover would be the last resort, but even then you might say to yourself ( why am I watching this?)

That's what black clover is..... Well to me that's what black clover is. What is the point? Just another generic anime with more attention than it actually deserves.

But who am I? I don't know business, and I sure as hell aint got no Say round here in the Shounen world.

It's just okay. It's in my queue, and I enjoy it well enough when it comes on. I've seen much worse anime than this. It's super derivative though, and it's not as good as what came before.

Nope, it's all cliche, very predictable and the characters' design is nothing impressive, they all seem filler characters with two or three exceptions.
Still, I do like Black clover, it's terrible but not the worst for me, there were many other animes that for some reason were more successful and less criticized by people overall.
maybe for shounen standars Black clover is kind of bland but personally I really appreciate the effort for being entertaining. ´v´

No way. It's fairly mediocre at this point. The animation looks nice though.

what is? Boruto?

No, Boruto's just okay. If I had to name any show the new king of shounen it would probably be Boku no Hero Acaedmia.


Are you kidding? Boku no hero is so lame. Its way too predictable. I mean hell, One punch man is way better than this. I couldn't get past the sixth episode of boku no hero

When it comes to one punch man being better than boku no hero? Yeah that's my opinion, true. But not the fact that its predictable. I predicted several things, of which were that he would magically get his powers and that they would be lame: that he would get enough points to pass) and that he would survive and defeat that giant robot thing. If i watched more episodes i could probably predict more. I predicted the ending of naruto, though, it was kind of obvious.

No duh. Shounen anime is the most formulaic and predictable genre of anime there is. It's all just random power-ups and the main character overcoming their shortcomings to win in the end. Bragging about being able to predict a shounen anime is like bragging about being able to predict that the sun will rise tomorrow.

And yeah, OPM is way better than BnH. When we talk about 'the new king of shounen anime' though, I assume we're talking about shows like One Piece and Naruto that are long-running and have HUGE fanbases. It's not necessarily an indicator of overall quality. OPM doesn't really qualify because it's just 13 episodes long and has a relatively niche audience.

MHA is much better then OPM though. OPM's quality drops so much after Boros it's kind of intense. It started to get better like a few chapters ago.

I'm purely talking about the anime. I haven't read the OPM manga yet.
