3. Why does Black Clove have Fillers and Anime-Exclusives?
Most anime are animated adaptations of manga and Black Clover isn’t any different. Usually, when a manga is ongoing, it needs to have abundant content that could be incorporated into the anime.
In the case of Black Clover, the manga does not have sufficient chapters that can be adapted into the anime and hence, the fillers.
Black Clover has anime canon episodes apart from fillers. Anime canons are different from fillers because they are actually incorporated by the creator of the manga, Yuki Tabata.
He has looked over some of the anime-exclusive episodes instead of letting the staff churn out useless fillers.
There are 19 anime-exclusive or anime canon episodes in Black Clover as of September 2020.
Anime Exclusive Episodes: 3, 13, 55-56, 130-133, 136-ongoing
Do not skip these anime-canon episodes, as they have a well-structured storyline and, despite lacking a manga arc, are really fun to watch!
