So, essentially any review panel ever.
I find critics and review panels to be counterintuitive. It's a biased process left at the mercy of the tastes and expectations of a select few who are, more often than not, elitist or snobbish as it is.


Well, they also thought Bleach was underrated even though Bleach stopped being amazing or great a long time ago. The rankings in Shonen Jump showed that.

I actually like Black Clover and thought the story was well put together so far. I don't know why people are complaining that it's so similar to Naruto when there's a lot of other shounen manga with the same themes. At least the females in Black Clover can pull their own weight and fight against the bad guys. I mean Sakura (and the other female ninjas) didn't get strong until it was closer to the end of series.

If any one wants to buy the manga, the first volume is already out.


Yeah and by the time Sakura did get strong everyone else was even stronger!

Like "oh great Sakura can punch a mountain to dust with her full strength. But now naruto and Sasuke are basically Ninja gods and can turn a mountain into a crater like swatting a fly" she was always getting further and further behind the rest of the cast. Naruto and Sasuke both far surpassed their Jiraya and Orochimaru but Sakura was inferior to Tsunade to the very end.

This always bugged me in Naruto, because there were a lot of cool female ninjas (I especially liked Tenten) but aside from tsunade hardly any of them got to do anything.

Black Clover doesn't bring enough to the table to quite differentiate itself, I suppose. There's a bit of a knee-jerk reaction going one against shounen in general, especially any that follows patterns along the lines of Naruto and Bleach. I think it just means that many people have ingested one too many series like it in the last fifteen years or so, and want something more fresh. Still, it's not good to take manga/anime polls too seriously.

Because Naruto is such an original concept..
It may have been that I accidentally skipped chapters, but when I was reading Black Clover it definitely felt like the plot would jump at points. There are also quite a few things that happen without explanation (like the dungeon). The way these came across made me realize the world building was poorly done. The plot feels oddly paced as well. I don't think it's bad, but it definitely doesn't feel like it has an abundance of potential.
At no point did I ever feel like it was similar to Naruto.

To all the naysayers, I understand the complaints but I urge all of you to read at least to the end of the third volume. That is when the manga really kicks it into high gear and shows us what it's really made of.
