Black Clover (TV) Episode 18



Black Clover is a Japanese anime series adapted from the manga of the same title written and illustrated by Yūki Tabata. Produced by Pierrot and directed by Tatsuya Yoshihara, the series is placed in a world where magic is a common everyday part of people's lives, and is centered around one of the only known person to not be able to use magic, Asta. Asta as well as his friend, rival, and adoptive brother Yuno, aspire to become the wizard king however to most people it would seem that Asta had no chance of becoming wizard king while Yuno was famous in his village as a prodigy. The series aired from October 3, 2017 to March 30, 2021 on TV Tokyo in Japan.[1] Kazuyuki Fudeyasu wrote the scripts, Itsuko Takeda designed the characters, and Minako Seki composed the music.[2] The first season, which adapts the first eight volumes of the manga, was initially listed as running for 13 episodes,[3] but was later expanded to 51 episodes.[4] The first two seasons each consisted of 51 episodes.[5][6] The series uses twenty six different pieces of theme music: thirteen opening themes and thirteen ending themes.

In 2017, both Crunchyroll and Funimation licensed the series for an English-language release in North America. Crunchyroll is simulcasting the series,[12] while Funimation is producing an English dub as part of its Simuldub program as it airs.[13][14] Their adaptation premiered on December 2, 2017, on Adult Swim's Toonami programming block.[15] The first DVD and Blu-ray compilation was released by Avex Pictures on February 23, 2018, with individual volumes being released monthly.[16] In February 2021, it was announced that the final episode of Black Clover would air on March 30, 2021, followed up by an anime film announcement for the series.


At the Black Clover Jump Festa event on December 18, 2016, an anime television series adaptation by Pierrot was announced.[41] It was directed by Tatsuya Yoshihara, with Kazuyuki Fudeyasu writing scripts, Itsuko Takeda doing character designs, and Minako Seki composing the music.[44] The series premiered on TV Tokyo on October 3, 2017.[45][46] with the first two seasons each consisting of 51 episodes.[47][48]


Season 3 premiered on October 1, 2019.[49] The anime has been broadcast without any major interruption until late April 2020, when it was announced that future episodes would be postponed based on studio production delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The broadcasting and distribution of episode 133 onward were delayed and in its place, the first episode of the series was rebroadcast on May 5, 2020;[50] the series resumed on July 7 of the same year,[51] and finished at episode 170 on March 30, 2021.[52][53]


Alex Osborn of IGN, in his review of the first episode, mentioned that its premise is not novel but concludes that it is "ultimately a solid introduction to the Clover Kingdom, and lays the groundwork for what will hopefully be an empowering story about the importance of never giving up."[119] Writing for Anime News Network, Rachel Trujillo praised the anime for "the grand lessons that one can take away from the story" and ambitious animation efforts from the staff.[120] In his review of Episode 170, Shawn Hacaga of The Fandom Post complimented the anime's improvement since its beginning, saying that he was "glad that Black Clover was able to turn it around."[121] Ivy Rose from Anime Feminist praised the way the story handles its female characters, giving them narrative importance and letting them partake in battles. Rose wrote: "Black Clover has truly raised the bar for depictions of female leaders in shounen anime, and female characters in general, as these solid portrayals are not just limited to women in leadership positions."[122]


None of the action this week especially pops, and Mars's clunky CGI diamond mech still isn't a pretty sight, but there's a simplicity to this episode that I think gets us back on track. Within the treasure room Asta finds himself a new sword, and the twist is that it seems to have the ability to borrow other people's magic, so while Noelle is in the process of being healed, she can give hers over to Asta for a moment. This raises some questions, like whether there would have been a difference between Noelle's magic on her own and her magic funneled through Asta's sword. It's a little lame that Noelle spends this entire episode on the ground playing support, but the cliffhanger that sees Asta taking significant damage is solid.


I'm back to wanting to know what happens next, and I appreciate the tiny pieces of world-building we get this week, even if most of it raises more questions than answers. Asta's new sword definitely seems designed to open new doors in battle, but the only application we've seen for it so far comes as a result of Noelle getting taken out just to create this moment. Black Clover has been in the clear as far as unwanted padding goes lately, so it's been interesting to try and take this arc as it comes. This episode falls firmly into "basic children's action show" territory as opposed to the messier past few episodes. Still not great, but I can live with it. 041b061a72
