Always fighting an uphill battle, Asta never gave up or resigned himself to fate despite being Magicless. This stubbornness of his allowed him to become much stronger than what was ever possible and showed him a way to become the Wizard King.
However, in Chapter 215, Asta has a major death flag raised for him. Will the main character of Black Clover really die?
1. Quick answer
Asta will not be dying in the Black Clover manga. He is the central protagonist of the manga who simply can’t die due to the plot armor. Julius’ prophecy about Asta’s death failed when he got out of Magic Parliament without execution.
Since there have been no major characters who have died in the series, it is improbable for Asta to die. However, in Chapter 215 of the series, Asta surprisingly has a major death flag raised for him after the Wizard king revives and predicts his death.
If Asta really does die, then his death will probably be in the next arc and will become an event that propels the story forward.
2. Will Asta die?
Since there have been no major characters who have died in the series, it is improbable for Asta, who is the main character, to die.
However, in Chapter 215 of the series, Asta surprisingly has a major death flag raised for him. After the Wizard king revives, he brings some bad news and makes three important predictions.
3. The three problems/predictions
The first problem is going to be the lack of Wizard King — Julius points out that he was not able to fully restore his grimoire and hence his power is lacking while the nobles’ leadership is under question.
The second thing that Julius predicts in “Black Clover” episode 121 is that Asta is going to die. At this point, the Wizard King confirms that Asta’s antimagic is coming from a Devil as well.
The last prediction and problem is that Julius sees into the future that the Clover Kingdom is under threat. All three problems and predictions are interrelated and very serious.
4. Why will Asta die?
After knowing the three predictions made by the Wizard King, we can assume a few situations which may cause Asta’s death.
Due to his powerful antimagic, he may become a threat to the enemies of the Clover Kingdom. In order to usurp the Kingdom without any variables, they might attack Asta, ultimately leading to his death.
The other situation is that Asta may sacrifice himself in order to protect the citizens of the Clover Kingdom while they are under attack.
After confirming Asta’s relations to the devils, there is a possibility that Asta may get taken over or defeated by the devil of Antimagic within his Grimoire which may lead to his death.
There is absolutely no surety of these situations coming to pass.
5. When will Asta die?
The possibility of Asta’s death has become one of the major keys of the next arc. If Asta really does die, then his death will probably be in the next arc and will become a moving factor that propels the story forward.
