‘Black Clover’ Movie Update: Release Window, Other Big Details Revealed

March 15, 2022

Fans will finally get to see the Black Clover anime ending in a movie format after it ended abruptly and without proper ending last year. Luckily, the franchise has finally released a new update about the long-awaited anime film. However, it will be a while before it finally hits the big screen.

Weekly Shone Jump issue #15 revealed that the Black Clover anime film will be released in 2023. Although it will probably be another year before Asta’s story has a proper ending, anime and manga fans are already looking forward to seeing what will happen.

Epic Dope noted that Japanese fans won’t be the only ones who can see what’s happening with the series. Since Funimation and Crunchyroll both got the license to stream the series, they might also get permission to release the series in western countries after the premiere in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Those who are worried about the character designs and plots of the film needn’t, as Yuki Tabata himself, the manga’s creator, oversees the entire film and takes responsibility for key twists and turns. That just means he can keep the film’s filler in check in the way fans would like it to.

First of all, the anime ended with Episode 170, which tells the backstory of love. She revealed how Asta’s mother tried to save him and was killed afterwards.

Since she was like a real mother to him too, Asta and Love decided to fight together to avenge her death. So in the Black Clover movie, the two will learn to use the Devil Union modes and train with Nacht.

Although the title is one of the most popular anime and manga series of its time, it will be filmed for the first time according to Coming Soon. The franchise has been running for more than seven years and both the manga and the anime are pretty intense.

The manga started the sequel story in 2015 and became a huge hit immediately after its release. The anime, on the other hand, premiered in 2017 and ran for 170 episodes ending in March 2021.

It became one of the most popular anime series of the 2010s, leaving many heartbroken when it suddenly ended. So far, all the important details about the film are being kept under wraps, but the people behind the production should better keep things under wraps.

However, according to rumors, the film will end with the Spade Kingdom Raid Arc, which the anime itself was working on before ending. The Black Clover movie is expected to be one of the biggest box office hits of 2023.
