Seb has been an anime fan since the late 90s and is particularly fond of anything post-apocalyptic, amusing, catgirly, ecchi or containing exquisite aerial battles. Living in Leeds with his cats and living up the bachelor life, Seb enjoys whiling the nights away deep in a book, game or a damn good series.

Based on the manga series by Yūki Tabata, BLACK CLOVER invites viewers to a world where magic is commonplace and almost anyone can conjure spells, except for young orphan Asta. Mocked for his inability to use magic and living in the shadow of his genius rival Yuno, Asta was disheartened when the annual grimoire ceremony appeared to leave him without a tome of his own. While defending Yuno from a thief however, Asta is gifted the legendary five-leaf clover grimoire, with its power of Anti-Magic giving him the strength he needs to charge towards his dream of becoming the most powerful mage in the land, the Wizard King!

Produced by teen action powerhouse Studio Pierrot (Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, Tokyo Ghoul), Black Clover is overseen by director Tatsuya Yoshihara (Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls), with series composition by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Girl’s Last Tour). 

Gakuto Kajiwara (You Don’t Know Gunma Yet) stars as the feisty Asta, alongside Nobunaga Shimazaki (Free! Eternal Summer) and Yuki Kana (Recovery of an MMO Junkie). Dallas Reid (Hyouka) leads the cast of the included English-language dub, with Micah Solusod (Soul Eater) and Jill Harris (In Another World With My Smartphone).

Original Story:

UK-Anime.net have had reports that Zavvi's online store is listing Black Clover for a release by Sony on August 6th and £27.99.

There are no details on runtime or certificate, but this would tie-in nicely with the Black Clover game coming soon from Bandai Namco.

Product Details:

Asta and Yuno were abandoned together at the same church and have been inseparable since. As children, they promised that they would compete against each other to see who would become the next Emperor Magus.

However, as they grew up, some differences between them became plain. Yuno was a genius with magic, with amazing power and control, while Asta could not use magic at all, and tried to make up for his lack by training physically.

When they received their Grimoires at age 15, Yuno got a spectacular book with a four-leaf clover (most people receive a three-leaf-clover), while Asta received nothing at all. However, when Yuno was threatened, the truth about Asta's power was revealed, he received a five-leaf clover Grimoire, a "black clover". Now the two friends are heading out in the world, both seeking the same goal.
