The Black Clover anime series ran from 2017 to 2021 with Tatsuya Yoshihara (Chainsaw Man action director) directing the first half and serving as chief director for the second. The main cast includes Gakuto Kajiwara as Asta, Nobunaga Shimazaki as Yuno, Junichi Suwabe as Yami Sukehiro, and Kana Yuuki as Noelle Silva. The Shueisha-published manga that inspired the show began in 2015 and has 33 tankoubon volumes as of November 2022. 

Viz Media describes the manga as:

Young Asta was born with no magic ability in a world where magic is everything. In order to prove his strength and keep a promise with his friend, Asta dreams of becoming the greatest mage in the land, the Wizard King!

The Black Clover manga is serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump and published under the Jump Comics label. The series has inspired spin-off manga, a light novel, and video games.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, so he spent a few years, starting from his college days, doing so. He still likes video games, but now focuses on writing anime-related news content and the occasional review for Anime Trending. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive.
