Usually, a black clover is an ill omen. Today, though, it’s an all-new anime title for the fall.
Yesterday, Crunchyroll started streaming an English-subtitled teaser for Black Clover. The 85-second promo is the third teaser, which was previously streamed in raw format.

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.
Crunchyroll will stream the anime as a simulcast. They describe 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!
Viz Media currently holds the domestic rights to the Black Clover manga.
