    Black Clover is awesome
    I am 26 episodes in and I want more. Yes the recaps are annoying, and yes I wish the episodes were longer, but it is all worth it. The slow build up of the characters is really nice, and it doesn't leave me with a sense of the show being rushed. Looking forward to to the next 26 episodes.

    Recaps/Flashback galore
    The show has a pretty interesting concept. It’s far from original, but it’s still somewhat enjoyable. But... each episode doesn’t actually begin until about 5 minutes in. It kills the pacing. From there you often have flashbacks to previous episodes and then the little animations at the end of each episode.

    You’re probably only watching 10 minutes of new story and even that is dragged. It’s a ...

    It could've been great, but it isn't.
    I just read some of the manga to see if this show was being made poorly or what. It turns out... it's just not very good!

    The animation does become super cheap to the point where they're just talking over stills so I mean the creators of this show could be doing A LOT better. But seriously, it's written for 9-year-olds. I expected way too much getting into this show. 26 episodes later ...

    Recaps are too long!
    I don't really have that much of a problem with the storyline although some parts of the anime just seem lazy. It's annoying once getting into the anime because most of the episode you are getting is the theme song and the recap. Really annoying how they need a recap of something just happened. I'm assuming the creators are trying to make the anime longer and longer considering how it is going so ...

    More show less recap please.
    This show recaps well over a 1/3rd of the air time. Plus they have their little after credit goofy animation which bleeds more time from the show. This shows plot seems good but the 10-13 minutes of actual content is driving me mad.

    STOP with rehashing last episodes. STOP recapping what just happened at the middle cut away for 2 minutes.

    This anime is making old school DBZ look like a god ...

    Fifteen minutes of recaps seems unnecesary...
    The fact that episodes end up being about 10 minutes long after the several recaps really takes away from the quality of the show. Aside from that pretty average, annoying protagonist who won't give up despite all odds, it's pretty much fairy tail all over again but with grimmoires and jackets instead of emblem tattoos =/

    Ruined by the lack of consideration
    Please do not watch the anime. It does not do the manga justice. It is awfully animated when compared to how fluid it should be and neglects to adapt to the manga in its entirety (it leaves a few things out, or does so to save some time). It is entirely run down and I'm very disappointed in the adaption.

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA...
    ...AAAAAAAA - introduction Asta style. This was supposed to be a new "king of shonen". Although I admit the story is not the worst thing I have seen, Black Clover is far beyond other classics of the genre. Its characters are mostly unenjoyable, annoying and not symphatic at all.

    It depends way too much on elements of other well known series. For example take a look at Asta, the main hero, who ...

    never written a review
    This anime is everything that is wrong with the industry right now: pandering to the lowest common denominator. I have never once felt so insulted by an anime that I needed to write a review warning people to avoid it but the amount of credit this show gives the audience is about equivalent to a nickelodeon show. and for the love of the anime gods stop f*cking screaming every 5 seconds.

    Lets think about this rationally
    This is one of the most hyped anime I have seen in awhile, with a game and movie announcement in my local movie theater when they only had dropped 6 episodes.

    I like action scenes and I pay attention to how they are animated. Because I have seen anime like Fate, RE: creators, Naruto, and many more, my expectations are high.

    Saying nothing of the "yawn" story content and the main character ...
