The whole Black Clover fandom was thunder-struck when the anime was shut down in 2021 with no news of a proper conclusion. Finally, the anime is ready to premiere its finale in a movie format.
Although the manga hasn’t published the last chapter yet, the final arc is on the verge of ending. Thus, the production committee will have the entire story at hand by the time the movie premieres.
Weekly Shonen Jump’s issue #15 has just revealed that the Black Clover anime movie will be released in 2023.
Since both Funimation and Crunchyroll stream the series, the film will likely get licensed for western countries very soon after its premiere in Japan.
Since Yuki Tabata is in charge of the character design and acts as the supervisor of the movie, I hope that he can keep the filler content in check.
The Black Clover anime ended with episode 170, which showed Liebe’s backstory. Asta’s mom, Licita, was like a mother to him and got killed trying to save him. Both Asta and Liebe then decided to fight together to avenge her.
In the upcoming movie, Asta and Liebe will learn to use Devil Union and go through grueling training with Nacht.
If you are up-to-date with the manga, then you already know that our heroes will jump into the fight against the Dark Triad. I will keep the results of the battles a secret but remember that a much bigger enemy awaits them.
Check out this teaser released on the YouTube channel of Shonen Jump Comics. You’ll get a superb view of Asta’s Devil Union form along with action sequences of other characters.
The Black Clover movie is bound to be one of the biggest box-office releases of 2023, as there isn’t a single shonen fan who doesn’t know about this anime. Let’s see if the movie can do justice to the splendid plot twists of the manga.
