The 40th issue of the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed that the Black Clover anime will start broadcasting a new original arc.

This original arc is not present in the manga, and it comes equipped with a brand new set of characters.

The two new characters and their cast in the upcoming anime arc are:

  • Dazuu Tayak by Himika Akaneya (Honoka Tamarai in ReLIFE)
  • Bow Nokde by Sayaka Kinoshita (Sora in Aki Sora)

Black Clover’s new arc will feature a plot where some new characters who hate the devils are introduced. These characters not only hate the devils but also wish for their extinction.

How will the new characters affect the upcoming arc and the anime as a whole? How will they treat the likes of Asta and Nacht, since devils possess them?

A new opening song of the Black Clover anime was recently released. K Pop boyband, TXT, performs the new opening song, “Everlasting Shine.

Gakuto Kajiwara, the voice actor of Asta, is debuting as a singer with the new ending theme of Black Clover. The ending theme called “A Walk” was first featured in the 141st episode of the anime.

A possibility of the Black Clover anime getting canceled after 2020 still exists.

Yuki Tabata is dissatisfied with the excessive freedom of the anime staff due to the anime featuring events that haven’t happened in the manga.

Is this new arc a product of Tabata’s understanding or is this what has agitated him even more?

The Black Clover manga is still in the preparation phase for a big upcoming battle.

Thus the anime still has some time before it ends. We hope that the new arc features some exciting new power-ups and action sequences.
