This manga has gotten so much better than when it first debuted. Admittedly, going straight to the Kiten arc right after everyone was starting to settle down after the underwater temple arc seemed a little fast paced for my liking, but it's good to know that Yuki is keeping this series moving along at a steady pace..Plus, William Vangeance hype. It's also great that the asspulls are next to none *cough* Fairy Tail *cough*. Overall, I'm glad Black Clover is doing exceptionally well in the rankings, and I can only hope the sales are doing good too. An OVA has already been announced, let's hope an anime series gets done next!

Okay, so without spoiling anything, I just want to know this: do the side characters in this manga get treated well or is it like the dragonball franchise after the cell saga, where the side characters just get their asses kicked until the main character shows up and beats the bad guy?

I'm only following the viz media release right now, and what seems to go on is some side character or characters will be losing a fight and then Asta shows up and they find a way to win together with a strategy that relies on everyone's unique powers. While it's formulaic, I think it's a welcome variation to the typical shounen formula I mentioned above. However I still find the fights always end up feeling very Asta-centric, with the side characters getting only very brief moments to shine. I kinda like the supporting cast in this manga and I want to see them do well, so I just thought I should ask whether later in the story they get to really kick some ass or if it's just Asta time all day.

First, my memory is bad so I don't remember details much.

With that out of the way....I'm at chapter 75 and will say that it is still following what you said with " some side character or characters will be losing a fight and then Asta shows up and they find a way to win together with a strategy that relies on everyone's unique powers". He is the main force behind winning but couldn't be done without the others. On top of that there are a few characters who have shown they don't really need his help at all too. So while the focus is on him, or his rival, the side characters seem to do pretty well.
