A member of the new gen’s big three, Black Clover is one awesome anime. Based on a shonen manga written by Yūki Tabata, Black Clover was made into an anime in 2017 and quickly became a mainstream show. Though the anime ran for only three years, Black Clover has about 170 episodes! Today, we will discuss the watch order for Black Clover, so be sure to take a note before diving into the series.
Black Clover follows Asta and his rival, Yuno, in the kingdom of Clover. In a world full of powerful mages and magicians, Asta is the only one born without any magic power called ‘Mana’. Yuno, on the other hand, is a magical prodigy. Raised as orphans in the countryside, best friends and rivals, Asta and Yuno dream of becoming the strongest “Wizard King” magician in the kingdom! The story begins in a very subtle manner but quickly picked up the pace, and things become very interesting.
Watch Order For Black Clover
As said above, Black Clover has 170 episodes under its name. However, all episodes are made chronologically, so that isn’t much of a problem. The problem arises because of the OVAs and the special episodes of Black Clover. It becomes a little tough to decide when to watch them, so down below is the recommended order for the show:-
- Black Clover: Jump Festa 2016 Special- Watch this special first.
- Jump Festa 2018 Special- Next up, you should watch the Jump Festa 2018 version.
- Black Clover Season 1- After the specials, you should pick up season 1.
- Black Clover Season 2- Next, pick up season 2 going by proper order.
- Black Clover Season 3– After season 2, beginning with season 3, which is 52 episodes long.
- Season 4 of Black Clover- Season 4 is the anime’s final season that concluded in 2021.
- Mugyutto! Black Clover– These are comical shorts of the anime. You can watch them at the end.
Expert tip- if you want, you can skip the specials and the last OVA. However, they are fun to watch but are not related much to the storyline of the show. So, if you are running short on time, you can cut down these from your watch list.
