Magically challenged MC gets anti-magic powers instead.

I have to say I enjoyed this first episode.

MC is so fucking loud, but his fighting spirit only turns it into a good point. I also noticed the animation was more fluid than usual, the silly bits were very nice too.

I hope they keep it like this until the last episode.


Isn't the manga strongly derivative shonen-crap, or does this have some merits?



It's not only self-aware but also tries to get away from tropes or subvert them sometimes.



Looks very bland and generic


His voice is terrible but I'll give it a few episodes. Crunchyroll has been shilling this really hard.

It kinda is, but not always. There are things that definitely feel like they are taken from other shit, but overall it's quite enjoyable. For a while it's just "this guy with strong magic laughs at me, but I got ripped and will punch him in the face with my sword".

Right now it's at a horrible tournament arc.

And yeah, just like every shounen started in the last five years it feels like it tries to be the next Naruto



But is he living his life correctly?

It felt like it was trying to be another Naruto. I'll give it two more episodes then probably ditch it.



>Magically challenged MC gets anti-magic powers instead.

The idea of not wanting the MC to have a special power, so you instead make them even more special by giving them the ability to counter special powers, is really popular these days.


I liked the little comedic parts and the random sakuga, but the characters seem awful and cliched. The voice acting is also pretty bad, not just on the MC but on pretty much everyone else, which is a weird thing to fuck up. I'll give it two more episodes but I don't think it can win me over at this rate.


File: 33e599bfae828de⋯.jpg (258.6 KB, 640x960, 2:3, index.jpg)


It's because Index was big and every time there's a hit people copy it in a superficial way.



>And yeah, just like every shounen started in the last five years it feels like it tries to be the next Naruto

>Watched HeroAca

>Does Tournament arc so well that no other tournament arcs can compare

>Almost all other shounen series are mostly tournament arcs

>Can't watch shounen shit anymore because it's been ruined

Not even kidding. I was in the middle of watching Shokugeki no Souma and Yowamushi Pedal when I watched/read the HeroAca tournament arc, and as soon as I went back to the other shows, it was impossible to enjoy them because I realized how poorly they did competitions in comparison.


There is no way I can spend 12 episodes listening to MC yell constantly. I'll give it one more episode to see if he mellows out a little, because aside from that it seems watchable.


Holy shit that annoying frog voice, how is this guy's debut as a seiyuu MC of a shounen jump manga?

I know they've been getting inexperienced idols or random celebrities to voice act lately but who the fuck is this guy?

I like seiyuu with unique voices but this guys uniqueness seems to be yelling with a throat full of phlegm.


File: 587af46faafedd2⋯.jpg (13.01 KB, 229x343, 229:343, chrysippus anger.jpg)

Disappointment of the season, maybe the year. That fucking flat, scream-everything delivery with the same exact inflection every sentence made me want to mute the show. The way every little reaction was flamboyantly animated in the beginning drove me nuts. I thought the setting was okay but everything else was hopelessly generic. I suppose that's what I deserve for not doing my due diligence; I probably wouldn't have touched it if I knew it was from Shonen Jump.

But that fucking five leaf clover grimoire was the stupid cherry on the stupid cake. This is some fanfic-tier writing. It blew my mind how anyone over the age of 10 could think that was cool. They say it gives him anti-magic powers but it's just a giant sword. Why give him a grimoire at all if he doesn't have any spells?

I ended up watching it at 2x just to get through it, and then instantly purged it from my hard drive.



>Magically challenged MC gets anti-magic powers instead.

Sounds like Index but somehow even worse.



This sounds like the most amazing sack of shit, I must see it.



>I probably wouldn't have touched it if I knew it was from Shonen Jump.

Hey, that's where we got Saiki Kusuo from so it can't all be bad.



I like some things from Shonen Jump, but I wouldn't have bothered if I knew it had all the trappings of generic shonen all over it.


>Starts with a babies crying nonstop

I'm loving it.

>Abandoned twin brothers

Ok, so it's Blue Exorcist



>3 minutes in

Awful shitty midi trumpet sound track. 20 seconds later shitty awful recorder soundtrack.

>MC has to be explained to that nuns can't marry

>5 minutes in

I'm already about done with hearing the MC go "NERNERNERNENERNER"

>Ok, so it's Blue Exorcist

Holy shit, it's literally blue exorcist.


I feel like he auditioned with that "screaming" voice, but after getting the job he can only ever sound remote like that when actively screaming. So he's forced to scream. ENDLESSLY.

Hero Academia Tournament arc is shit and pointless because it only serves to show that Deku is a bitch loser and needs to get better (a message that is in every other arc).

And don't try to tell me otherwise, Deku hits that two face motherfucker twice, does it so hard he shatters his own hand and yet somehow he still loses because he has to learn the same lesson over and over again.

Tournament arcs are pointless filler that serves to pad out the length with secondary characters (and to fan the flames for power level arguing faggots), and the only good tournaments are those that get interrupted.


The MC is a caricature, and not in a fun way. He's consistently in one mode for most of the episode, and his behaviors are so exaggerated they don't resonate with me at all. Characters have to have more range than this, even the brothers from Osomatsu-san are more relatable than him. It would have been nice if he'd had a moment of quiet where we get to see how bummed out he is at not having magic, instead of just super autistically striving all episode. I hope he mellows out and acts like an actual person from time to time.

Beyond the protagonist the show doesn't seem bad, but not good either. The part where Yuno said Asta was his "rival" to the chain wizard was horribly cliche. And we all just knew Asta was going to get some super special magic before the episode was done. Hopefully it improves from here, but I wouldn't bet on it.



>And we all just knew Asta was going to get some super special magic before the episode was done.

And to think, instead this could have been a show about an amazingly /fit/ bro in a world of weak assholes that rely on majic, who studied the mechanics and limitations of magical abilities and uses that knowledge to beat the shit out magicians with no powers. Like, what's the point of him working so hard if nothing at all comes of it? He didn't get the powers from working hard, or from his can-do attitude, they just fucking show up.



>Like, what's the point of him working so hard if nothing at all comes of it?

Presumably that train's going to come in useful in wielding that sword, it looks like he's going to be a warrior type who uses magic to augment his combat abilities rather than a straightforward, ordinary mage.



>an amazingly /fit/ bro in a world of weak assholes

I was hoping it would go this way too. A world of magicians is a world where no one has any muscle tone. The one fit guy that knows the weaknesses of magic would be hard to beat. Of course its not that. Its just Naruto with Touma powers.


So is the manga better or is it as shit as the anime?



I thought the Fairy Tail tournament arc was pretty good. I guess that got interrupted but I enjoyed it before that.



HeroAca has only had one tournament arc, and it didn't use it to cram backstories into nonstop, it was used to actually develop the character beyond what you've seen so far. I usually bitch and moan non-stop about tournament arcs, but HeroAca's was done incredibly well. I'll still get made if I see another one anytime soon, though



IMO it would be hugely improved just with a different voice actor so I can't imagine the manga isn't better.


File: 8eac366765738e4⋯.jpg (22.68 KB, 320x240, 4:3, RuneSoldier3.jpg)



There is a show like that.

Of a muscle mage that punches people.



Why are they stepping out of a giant vagina?



There is a tournament for all the highschool age groups.

If we're unlucky we'll get another one.



Why is there Shredder in a vietnamese rice field map?


Did they get the seiyu who did usopp's voice and tell him to roll his l's and r's to the point of annoyance? This was not the voice of Asta I was expecting.

Manga has been derivative for a long time. It feels like it hit its peak already and coasting along for no real reason like World Trigger (though, that seems to still be on hiatus). I kind of wished he went back and fixed the mess that was Hungry Joker.



Yo, that show is fucking great. Rogue best girl.

I really, really want something like this. Rune soldier gets pretty close.


I think I'm legitimately excited to continue watching this trash heap, and I have no idea why.



>Sounds like Index but somehow even worse.

Or Break Blade.



It's probably going to be my guilty pleasure this season.


Really generic in the worst possible ways

>just bee urself and never give up :^)


MC can't talk for five fucking seconds without rattling his throat. I'm not going to put up with a whole season of this for something so uninspired.

Index has no idea what it's doing, I've never seen a story meander more.

I watch everything at 2x speed, except for maybe live action shows. People in media no longer understand or respect dead air and I see a lot of it in modern media and it's fucking unbearable.

Dear God his fucking toad voice.


This is terrible. I couldn't even get through the first fucking episode. As others have said, why couldn't this be about a /fit/ chad MC that beats up wizards. And who the fuck okayed that VA? What the fuck.

The generic-ness of this anime coupled with the MC just makes it a trainwreck not even worth watching. Nothing like Re;creators which at least has few watchable episodes and was such a spectacular dumpster fire. This is just plain old boringly bad.


I don't know if it makes it better or worse, but this is the first role the MC's VA has.



>Its just Naruto with Touma powers.

You could say it's Toumato.

I'm sorry.



>let's have the MC of our flagship shonen jump anime adaptation be voiced by a complete newbie because he can SCREEEEAEAEAEAEAM

The person in charge of voice casting for Black Clover is the biggest fuck-up of all here.


I didn't know Aho Girl was getting a 2nd cour.

The premise seems pretty ok. But man, I just can't get over how ugly the MC is.



When anime creators learn how to stop it with dead air I'll stop otherwise it vastly increases my enjoyment of shows. Everything feels like a boring slog without it as you listen to morons moan and grunt for what feels like half the air time not to mention lingering shots on fucking nothing.




Didn't this already come out?

Yeah it did it came out five months ago.

Real classy

>continuing it with 15 minutes of nothing

>faggot giving a speech about how he needs no magic while wielding a magic grimoire and a magic sword and performing a magic attack

I don't know why I bothered with the second episode.


So is the sister going to be anything important? I mean, why did the frog-MC confess? Just so he could be shot down for the audience to go "lol what a loser"?

MC seems like personalityless flake.


That's actually a lot less painful.


its blue exorcist x naruto x boku no hero

but I enjoyed the first episode, except for the MC VA. hopefully that'll be more bearable in the future




>This was the gimmick for a book I wanted to write back when I was a kid.

Oh well. You snooze, you lose.


>watch it thinking the screaming can't be that bad

>holy shit it really is that bad

Even a good VA wouldn't be able to polish the heaping pile of shit that is the MC. 0/5, don't waste your time.

"Not giving up is my magic!"


What's funny is that I actually seem some good in this show, but they completely fucked it up. It seems to show the giant fuck-all sword as weighing a "realistic" amount, except MC is autistically /fit/ so he can actually wield it. So that actually would have been really cool to go in with his whole "can't use magic but is still strong" but if it were a sword that wasn't inherently magical because it gets summoned by a grimoire. If it had been an ancient artifact usable only by someone who literally had no magic, or maybe drained the magical ability of anyone who touched it and he found it while romping through the forest as a kid, that would have made this who show work a lot better. But instead they insist he has no magical ability, even though he has an obviously mystical power that blots out the sun, makes everything glow, and summon an impossibly big sword. Hell, his mystical ability is even RATED ON THE SAME SYSTEM AS OTHER MAGIC. 1 leaf is supposed to be poor and 4 leaves were supposed to be god-tier. His grimoire is rated at 5-leaves, and yet they act as if this is somehow completely different?

The other potential the show has still is if they had the balls to make it about how Astra autistically inspires Yuna who becomes the greatest Wizard King of all time or something. It'd be interesting to see them do a story about, instead of the "greatest hero ever," made it about the guy who made him into that, protecting him on the way through his journey. Like a Three Kingdoms show with Dian Wei as the protagonist or something. However, I know that will never ever happen.



No, she won't be.

She's there so that he wouldn't think about the harem he's unwittingly building like any shounen protagonist.



>If it had been an ancient artifact usable only by someone who literally had no magic, or maybe drained the magical ability of anyone who touched it

It is



Assuming you're not lying, that's honestly worse now that it's clearly portrayed as a magical item.

The swords were weapons used by the ancient elves, who have apparently been destroyed by the first Magic Emperor. The sword isn't created by the grimoire, and is actually a weapon of the elven elder.

Asta can only use it only because by coincidense he has no magic at all.


With the pacing of that second episode it really seems like they're in it for the long haul.


Is that a whole new voice actor or just edited? It'd be worthwhile fan edit to do the whole season like that.



I didn't. The mc's VA is annoying I don't know why. The voice just feels fake or forced.

The sound direction is shit in general. I heard voices reverberate 3 times in episode 1. It felt like amateur hour in sound editing or mic checking.


I tried to give the manga a shot because I like the art but man the writing is beyond terrible

There's a part where they introduce two characters and just go "Yeah Asta saved and became friends with these people off-panel, don't worry about it"

Extremely generic shonenshit




In a fucking LN no less.

Also it borrows heavily from both bleach and naruto, I can feel some fairy tail and seven deadly sins too.


The MC voice is the single most annoying thing I have ever heard but I feel that is by design, you aren't supposed to view him as the stereotypical hero but a loathsome douche.

Reading ahead in the manga there's plenty more cringe but hopefully they draw loli farnese with proper nopants.


YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.


She certainly has energy and spunk and that loli feel.

But I dunno. Cleric girl is better looking.

His mage friend is also great.



He sounds like Natsu from Fairy Tail pls no bully but instead of the VA varying his voice based on the situation like using a high-energy yelling tone for action sequences and such, this VA seems to just yell all of the time.



>Hero Academia Tournament arc is shit and pointless because it only serves to show that Deku is a bitch loser and needs to get better

Character Development, you fucking retard.

They actually did it.

The managed to do THREE episodes out of ONE manga chapter.

I watched it with the intention to drop it after because I was thinking they would do the entrance exam and it might be no-brainz fun to watch.

WRONG. They're still in chapter 1.

That has to be a record.

The worst bit about this show is the fact that I'm actually having a degree of fun because watching Yuno and Astra play off each other is kind of endearing.



>The worst bit about this show is the fact that I'm actually having a degree of fun because watching Yuno and Astra play off each other is kind of endearing.

Some other anon mentioned it but the manga isn't bad (as far as shonen go), the current arc is a "we run out of idea = tournament" BS, but before (100 chapters or so, as usual) it was fairly entertaining.

This is a high budget really terrible adaptation of something that shouldn't have been that hard to make...



The BGM sounds like something from lego racers but more incoherent.

The manga is terrible too, what are you talking about

It doesn't even try to change up the shonen formula

MC will meet powerful villain who's cocky about their strength, defeat them with power of no magic, then either become friends with them or they will die

The only reason to read this shit is for the art

I wonder if Asta is supposed to be autistic.

The fight definitely made it look that way. Not a single punch to the balls, really?



>the manga isn't bad (as far as shonen go)


>It doesn't even try to change up the shonen formula

See where you're problem is?

Black Clover manga isn't a bad shonen... it's a perfectly average one and was fresh enough and nicely drawn enough, as long as they explored the setting, to provide "suitable" entertainment (IE it's nothing great to talk about, but it will do if you have nothing else to read).

Black Clover anime is something terribly bad you would only recommend to people you want to see in pain, and because of how average the manga is, it shouldn't have been hard to adapt.

I'm kind of disappointed that I feel like I could enjoy this if MC wasn't screeching autistically the whole time.
