    Enjoying this. Sause
    I'm very much enjoying this so far. The animation looks great and they've set it up in a big way. I'm very much looking forward to the next episodes of this. Everyone else who hasn't read the manga doesn't know what they're talking about and clearly don't care to correct themselves by reading it. But I care, and enjoy this manga and will support the anime!

    In Defense of Black Clover
    I am going to be as unbiased as possible here. I am not part of the Black Clover fandom nor am I a manga reader. This is just an anime-only watcher addressing others thoughts on the other reviews that I have seen here. Let me just start off by saying, it is not fair in the slightest to judge an entire series off of its first episode. You may be thinking that is what I'm doing but, no it's not. I ...

    Trying to make this work
    I wanted to give this less than four star, but I really do want to see this anime succeed. First, I do not want to have to take some Advil for each episode with Asta screaming throughout the episode I REALLY hope they can work on his voice. Second, I hope the animation improves. The story does sound familiar with , but I am a sucker for this type of anime. Overall I really want to enjoy this ...

    Two Part: Ye of Little Faith > For Diehard Fans Only
    Ye of Little Faith

    Black Clover has a large problem that seems endemic to the Shonen category in general, it spends entirely too much time trying to make things easy to understand. Whenever anything happens on screen, the exact way you should feel about it is conveyed by dialogue specifically addressing it. Rather than building up context to form a straightforward underdog protagonist, ...

    Not worth your time!
    The first episode really lacked all heart. All of the characters played like soulless cliches:
    - Loud, spikey haired protag, check
    - Cold main rival character, check
    - Fatherly figure who was played for laughs, check

    Look, cliche's can be fine if you do something with them, but this show doesnt. Every single character is just that one note summary. You already know how each scene is going to ...

    Black Clover is way that My Hero Academy should be
    I will like to remark that Black Clover Spirit is Aster being a normal human without magic. and keeps this way the hole plot. Just like Midoriya in My Hero Academy but a difference of this one Aster will never gets super powers, yet continues his journey to become one of the most powerful Magic Knight. I have read the manga and the story is solid and fights that sometimes are predictable the ...

    Bad. Beyond bad. Just Terrible
    Where to begin.

    Main character is annoying. It's like taking all of the underdog tropes, rolling them into one character then dipping that character in the sewer to make them not likeable.

    I'll update this later if the show gets some steam rolling, but so far this seems more aggravating than enjoyable

    Update: episode 2 is out and oh look it's filler. Is there a way to vote anything lower ...

    I am in tears that this is finally here
    I have been reading the manga and have been waiting for the anime to come out for about a few months now. It is finally here, and when I saw it I literally got into tears. I love the animation and graphics, and the characters seem flawless. Keep up the good work, this might become my new favorite anime!

    Bleeding Ears, Fleeting Potential
    My Ears hurt bad enough from listening to the episode 1 MC that I hopped off this episode multiple times wondering how it got such good reviews. Then, I saw the phenomenal plot development of the show and saw that it had great potential. However, unless that MC voice changes (actor changed) or gets his shrill/screeching "voice" usage minimized, I will be forced to either watch the animation on ...

    What were they thinking with that voice?!
    I have never reviewed an anime after only an episode, and generally dislike when people do... I will redo this review if I can sit through more episodes but...

    But I have watched anime fort 20 years since I was 5 years old. And the MC in this show has the most grating, unpleasant, hoarse voice I have ever heard. He sounds like someone in their late 60s who smoked 3 packs of cigarettes everyday ...
