As announced, the 170th episode of the animated manga adaptation written and illustrated by Yuuki Tabata, Black Clover, aired today. This episode ended the animated adaptation, and although some insist on calling it “a recess”, until the opposite is officially confirmed, the series is considered finished.
The anime 椅子 汰, who participated in the animation production, shared a special illustration commemorating this broadcast: “The animated adaptation of Black Clover has aired its 170th episode and has ended! Thank you very much for watching it to the end! It has been three and a half years since we worked on Black Clover, and it has been a project where we gave everything of ourselves. Personally, I have loved this production since its inception, and I am very grateful to you! I will be a Black Clover fan forever!”. He wrote.

It should be noted that the production of an animated feature film is confirmed, but it is not yet revealed if its story will be a direct sequel to this anime or if it will feature an original story supervised by the author. Furthermore, Tabata began publishing the manga in Shueisha publisher’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in February 2015.
The play inspired a 170-episode anime adaptation produced by Pierrot Studios, directed by Tatsuya Yoshihara and Ayataka Tanemura and scripts written by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu and Hatsuo Nara, released in October 2017. Production on a film is confirmed.
Black Clover Synopsis
Asta and Yuno were dumped in the same church on the same day. Raised together as children, they came to know the “Wizard King,” a title bestowed upon the strongest wizard in the kingdom, and vowed to compete with each other to see who might become the next Wizard King. However, as they grew older the vast difference between them became apparent. While Yuno is capable of wielding magic with astonishing power and control, Asta cannot use magic at all, and desperately tries to awaken his powers by physically training.
When they turn 15, Yuno receives a spectacular Grimoire with a four-leaf clover, while Asta receives nothing. However, shortly after, Yuno is attacked by a person named Lebuty, whose main objective is to get hold of Yuno’s Grimoire. Although hopeless and on the brink of defeat, Asta finds the strength to survive upon hearing Yuno’s voice, and unleashing his inner emotions receives a Grimoire of a five-leaf clover, a “Black Clover” that grants him enough power to overcome the threat. Now they both have a chance to become the Wizard King!
