Why does Black Clove have Fillers and Anime-Exclusives?

Most anime are 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.

Anime Exclusive Episodes: 3, 13, 55-56, 130, 132-133, 136-141, 149-157

Do not skip these anime-canon episodes, as they have a well-structured storyline and are really fun to watch despite lacking a manga arc!
