Black Clover is preparing for the upcoming war against the demons from the underworld.
However, our protagonists have come to the painful realization that they are no match for the devils. At least not in their current state.
Their biggest hope is Asta and his Anti-Magic power, which stems from the devil, Liebe. In order to achieve a greater amount of power, Asta has to defeat Liebe and take over command.
In chapter 269, the battle between Asta and Liebe was shown. Liebe had accumulated so much hatred within himself that it manifested into the power of anti-magic.
Asta had also gone through hellish physical training and put up a tough fight.
The results of the match between Asta and Liebe is finally out! Chapter 270’s raw scans show Liebe wearing chains around his neck. Asta has defeated him, and this is the outcome.
However, Asta does not want a master-slave relationship between him and Liebe. Thus he extends his hand towards friendship and camaraderie. Liebe accepts the effort as well.
So is Asta currently at his most powerful, now that he has defeated Liebe? Doesn’t really look like it. Yes, he has defeated Liebe, but he just used all that was already instilled in him. He hasn’t learned any new skills yet.
Nacht comes into view, and he is wearing an armor made by his devil, Gimodelo’s powers. It is very similar to Noelle and her Valkyrie form. It seems like this is the next step that Asta has to achieve.
Nacht tells Asta that he and Liebe have to work together to defeat him. Both of them have very little time on their hands to reach this level of coordination.
What Nacht and Gimodelo might have achieved through years of training needs to be ingrained in Asta and Liebe in just a day or two.
