About Black Clover
The movie is based on Yuki Tabata’s manga Black Clover. It started the serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Jump Magazine on February 2015.
Viz Media publishes the manga digitally and in print, along with Shueisha’s MANGA Plus publishing the manga digitally.
The manga’s anime adaptation premiered in Japan in October 2017 and aired its 170th episode in March 2021.
Crunchyroll streamed the anime in Japanese with English subtitles, and Funimation streamed the series in English dub.
Crunchyroll defines the first season of Black Clover as:
In a world where magic is everything, Asta and Yuno are both found abandoned at a church on the same day.
While Yuno is gifted with exceptional magical powers, Asta is the only one in this world without any.
At age fifteen, both receive grimoires, magic books that amplify their holder’s magic. Asta’s is a rare Grimoire of Anti-Magic that negates and repels his opponent’s spells.
Being opposite but good rivals, Yuno and Asta are ready for the hardest of challenges to achieve their common dream: to be the Wizard King. Giving up is never an option!
