So, they’re a little early for the fall rush this time. That’s a good thing, right?
Last night, Crunchyroll announced that they will stream Black Clover as part of their Fall 2017 simulcast lineup. The series will début on Crunchyroll’s platform in October.
Black Clover is based on Yuki Tabata’s manga of the same name. Tatsuya Yoshihara (Monster Musume, Long Riders!) will direct the project at Studio Pierrot, with Itsuko Takeda (Ristorante Paradiso, Blue Drop) serving as character designer. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Monster Musume, Tantei Opera Milky Holmes) is in charge of series composition for the project.
Other confirmed crew members include:
- Sub-Character Designer: Kumiko Tokunaga
- Music: Minako Seki
Yūki Tabata’s Black Clover manga began publication in Shonen Jump magazine in February 2015. To date, eleven volumes have been released, with the most recent hitting stores on May 2.
Viz Media currently holds the domestic rights to the Black Clover manga. Crunchyroll describes the series as:
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!
