It’s been a rough few months for major anime broadcasts. Due to the spread of COVID-19 across Japan, huge television series like Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World- and Sword Art Online: Alicization War of Underworld had their broadcasts delayed indefinitely. Black Clover was another such series to be hit with a sudden delay, as animation company Studio Pierrot was forced to readjust their pipeline in the face of a sudden state of emergency across Japan. Thankfully, things are calming down in Japan a bit, companies are beginning to operate as usual, and Black Clover is officially set to resume broadcasting next month.
Announced in the 29th issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, where the original Black Clover manga runs, July 7 is when magic-fueled shonen enthusiasts can expect Black Clover to resume its broadcast. The series will pick up from episode 133. The previous episode, 132, aired back on April 28.
Funimation, meanwhile, has slowly continued to release English dubbed episodes of Black Clover. As the English localization and dubbing company continues to settle into their new remote dubbing setup, dubbed episodes of the series are likely to continue airing once the broadcast resumes. Crunchyroll, meanwhile, is streaming Black Clover with English subtitles only. The show also airs weekly on Adult Swim’s Toonami block, where it premiered back in December of 2017.
Crunchyroll describes the series as follows:
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!
