Chapter 276 of the Black Clover manga was far beyond anything we have ever seen before! If you didn’t get goosebumps over Nacht’s perfect and strategic plan (well I did), you can’t ignore Mereoleona’s Hellfire Incarnate transformation.
While Yami’s Black Moon might still be stronger than her, it’s not as cool!!! Or maybe it is? Well, I can never really choose between these two.
Anyway, coming back to chapter 276, it’s going to be EPIC. Now that Mereoleona has defeated the ancient demon, the boss fights will begin.
1. Chapter 276 Raw Scans & Spoilers
The raw scans and spoilers for chapter 276 of the manga have been leaked and the rough translation goes like this:
In the raw scans, we see Yuno and Langris reaching Zenon’s destination – Zenon completely overpowers the duo in the beginning, UNTIL, Yuno shows the fruits of his training.
Yuno and Sylph have managed to acquire a new form and weapon for Yuno, using which he impales the demon-unified Zenon. The next chapter is going to be pretty interesting.
2. Where to Read Black Clover
3. Chapter 276 Predictions & Speculations
I. The Duo Battles
It’s hard to imagine how these battles will turn out – on one hand, I don’t want Yami and William to die but on the other hand I know that these battles can’t possible be the end game.
Nacht and Jack defeating Dante? No! I want Asta x Yami to do that, similarly, there is no chance Charlotte and Rill will defeat Vanica since that spot is already reserved for Noelle and Lolopechka.
The only fight I am interested in seeing right now is ‘The Vengence for Vangeance’ (bad pun sorry!) Anyway, I am really looking forward to seeing how Yuno and Langris hold their ground against Zenon in the next chapter.
II. Asta x Liebe’s Training Continues!
Chapter 273 ends with Nacht putting his faith in Asta and Liebe as he leaves Gimodelo with them so that they could train and rush back to the battlefield.
Nacht assures in chapter 273 that Asta and Liebe’s duo WILL become the strongest of all. Hopefully, we will have a proper look at the Devil Union by the end of chapter 276 or 277.
III. Noelle & The Ultimate Magic!
I know I know! It has nothing to do with Asta’s battle with the devil but you have to admit, you cannot not talk about the Ultimate magic.
Even though the Noelle-squad survived Vanica’s devastating spell, we know they are not nearly strong enough to go head-to-head with the menacing devil, let alone beat her, especially considering the strength Yami and Asta had to unleash to defeat Dante.
However, if the leader of elves says he can, I believe him! As to what this special and known-to-a-few magic spell, Ultimate magic, is – I have a considerable theory.
We know how much elves are loved by mana, and the power brought upon by natural mana has been shown on many occasions around Gaja, Lolopechka, and even Licht himself.
Therefore, just like Mana Skin had an upgrade (Mana Zone), Ultimate magic will likely be a much-advanced form of using natural mana and creating arrays.
4. Chapter 276 Release Date

5. Chapter 275 Recap
Chapter 275, titled “Hellfire Incarnate,” starts with Nacht explaining the semantics of the RITUAL. He explains that the advent of Qlipoth’s tree is based on four factors – one is the center where Yami and William are currently trapped, while the other three are the respective ‘edges’ around the magic circle where the Dark Triad is.
The raiding party has now been divided into three 3-man squads in which two of the members HAVE to reach their respective Dark Triad member to defeat them. The remaining one should act as a decoy if the squad runs into the Dark Disciples.
The divisions are:
- Yuno, Langris, and Nozel (Decoy)
- Charlotte, Rill, and Dorothy (Decoy)
- Nacht, Jack the Ripper, and Fuegoleon (Decoy)
While Nozel, Dorothy, and Fuegoleon keep the dark disciples occupied, the rest of the squad reaches their destination. Yuno and Langris attack Zenon (obviously!!! time for some Captain William revenge!) – Charlotte and Rill attack Vanica while Nacht and Jack attack Dante, the cult Leader.
We also see the one fierce mage who takes on the job of single-handedly defeating the ancient demon – the former Lioness and ever-so-strong, Mereoleona ‘Hellfire Incarnate’ Vermillion.
Ps…her new form is just AMAZING! The hype is right next to Noelle’s Valkyrie armor transformation.
