Black Clover Looks Promising. Will There Be A Season 2?

Black Clover

You might have been watching this new fantasy anime series about two orphans aspired to become the Wizard Kings. It looks promising. Indeed, Black Clover managed to gather the target audience among the viewers of the fantasy genre. An OVA developed by Xebec premiered yet in May, while the official release took place in October. However, it's worth noting that the viewers were able to preview this OVA at the 2016 Jump Festa. The anime series has just started off airing.

Nonetheless, many viewers are wondering regarding the possible 2nd season of Black Clover. Unlike the regular US and UK shows, it's very a rare phenomenon in the world of anime when the show's creators announce the next round right after the series start. However, sometimes, an anime consists of two cours. In that case, the studio may split one big season (which usually includes of twenty-six episodes) into two parts. Due to such misunderstanding, the viewers typically take this 2nd chapter for a sophomore season.

The first season of Black Clover, however, contains just thirteen episodes. As a rule, it could mean that we would have to wait at least one year before the announcement of a next season. But there is no reason for panic in the case of Black Clover since the original manga contains thirteen volumes and 120 chapters. We doubt that the series' creators are going to use all the possible sections in their television adaptation. Therefore, Black Clover would likely be a long-term franchise. Of course, we can't be sure of this fact, but it would be wholly ill-conceived decision of adapting all 120 chapters in just one television season. Hence, we almost sure that there would be a second season of the series. However, let's take a look at other indicators, to be more precise in our forecast.

As you know, one of the most significant indicators capable of affecting the further decision on renewal is a reception by the target audience. As appears, this figure is quite high. On MyAnimeList, the anime holds a score of 7.15/10 > 7,200 votes. The verdict by IGN seems to be favorable as well. They have rated Black Clover at 4 points of out 5. But on Crunchyroll, the rating of the series has been only 3.1/5. Nonetheless, in general, a response of the audience regarding Black Clover was positive. Since the viewers have appreciated the new show as well as there is enough source material to produce one more season, we conclude that Black Clover has a good chance for Season 2.

The anime started off on October 3, 2017, on TV Tokyo. Pierrot Co., Ltd. served as a creator of the series. FUNimation has acquired rights to the anime in North America. Black Clover is available for online video streaming through Crunchyroll. The first season of the series consists of thirteen episodes.

What Is Black Clover About?

The story focuses on two orphans, Asta and Yuno. They both grew up in the suburb of the Clover Kingdom. In this land, everyone possesses magical skills since childhood. However, Asta is unlucky since he has no supernatural abilities. But this flaw has served a reason for Asta to develop his physical capabilities. Yuno, in turn, is a gifted guy who is capable of controlling his unique magical skills.

When both have become teenagers, they aspired to turn into Magic Knights thanks to the power of Grimoires. While Yuno received an exciting magic book with a four-leaf clover, Asta does not win one. However, when Asta has been trying to protect Yuno against a thief, he summoned his Grimoire. It turns out that his Grimoire contains a five-leaf clover, known as a "Black Clover," which produces Anti-Magic. As a result, two friends went on a journey, pursuing the same goal.

On The Subject Of The Possible Release Date For Season 2

As a rule, each episode airs once a week on a particular day. Black Clover, thereby, will conclude on December 12, 2017, or closer to this date. So, we doubt that the official announcement of renewal will be following this year. Most likely, we might expect the exciting news at the beginning of 2018, given a specific of the world of anime. Therefore, we assume that the second season of Black Clover will begin airing next fall or even at the beginning of 2019. But this is just our assumption. Anyway, we're waiting for the official announcement. Were we wrong or right, we will see. Stay tuned for updates. We'll keep you informed on the subject.
