Black Clover Anime Returns July 7 After COVID-19 Delay

Black Clover Anime Returns July 7 After COVID-19 DelayBlack Clover is headed back to screens. Production on the anime was temporarily halted back in April, but the series will resume with episode 133 on July 7.

That’s the word from the latest issue of Shonen Jump, where Yuki Tabata’s Black Clover has been running since 2015.

The anime, which kicked off in 2017, is directed by Tatsuya Yoshihara and written by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu. It’s streamed in the States by Crunchyroll (sub) and Funimation (dub). Crunchyroll describes it like this:

In a world where magic is everything, Asta and Yuno are both found abandoned at a church on the same day. While Yuno is gifted with exceptional magical powers, Asta is the only one in this world without any. At the age of fifteen, both receive grimoires, magic books that amplify their holder’s magic. Asta’s is a rare Grimoire of Anti-Magic that negates and repels his opponent’s spells. Being opposite but good rivals, Yuno and Asta are ready for the hardest of challenges to achieve their common dream: to be the Wizard King. Giving up is never an option!
