Black Clover is one of the best and most well-known shonen. Some people still haven’t seen it or read it, which is surprising. If you only watch anime, don’t worry; we won’t give anything away, but we might talk about the plot of upcoming content. Here is everything we know about the fifth season of Black Clover.
Black Clover Anime’s Cancellation: Why?
The lack of source material was the main reason why the Black Clover anime had to end. The anime series was quickly catching up to the manga chapters, and then there would have been nothing left to adapt.
The manga chapter 272 has been turned into an episode of the Black Clover anime. Since there are 333 chapters of the manga, 60 chapters are not enough for the Black Clover anime to come back.
Black Clover Animation Problem: Many fans have complained for a long time that the quality of anime has gone down a lot. This has happened many times, and it’s annoying when a big fight is about to happen.
The lack of time to polish the episode is the main reason why the animation in Black Clover isn’t very good. Studio Pierrot has a tight schedule because each episode of the anime series comes out every week, so the animators don’t have enough time to make the episodes look good. The same thing is going on with the Boruto series.
Before putting out more episodes of Black Clover, the people in charge of making the show might have wanted to improve the quality.
Recap of Season 4 of Black Clover
Season 4 of Black Clover reminded us why this anime is so wonderful. It brought together many admirers, and each episode sparked numerous discussions.
We witnessed the lovely interactions between Liebe and Lichita. Liebe was revealed to be the devil within Asta, and Asta’s mother is Lichita. She gave her life to protect Liebe, who called her by her name even though she had adopted him as a son. In the last moments of Lichita, Liebe refers to her as “mother.” Overall, you could say that we shed many tears during this season.
We also witnessed the Dark Triad and were left with a substantial cliffhanger. If we discussed all the storylines, this would become a discussion thread, so let’s not waste any time and jump right into the season 5 specifics!
Is Black Clover Season 5 Renewed or Not?
This is important because, unlike other shows, we’re still not sure if there will even be a season 5. Shueisha and Studio Pierrot haven’t said anything official about whether or not Black Clover will have a fifth season. It was already known that the manga would stop for three months so that Yuki Tabata, who made Black Clover, could finish the last story arc. They do everything they can to put quality first.
Because of that break, there were no chapters for three months. Chapter 332 didn’t come out until August 1st. Since the manga is what the anime is based on, it makes sense that we haven’t heard anything about season 5. Also, a movie is being made, which gives the animators even more work to do. They might be taking their time to make sure everything goes well, which is a good thing.
We’re getting close to the end of the story, so maybe after the movie, we’ll finally hear something about how the anime will go on.
When Will Black Clover Season 5 Come Out?
According to sources, There’s nothing official yet, but season 5 of Black Clover is likely to come out in 2024. If all goes well, the date for Season 5 of Black Clover will be announced after the movie comes out in theatres.
We think it will be in the summer or fall of 2024 because the movie will come out in 2023 and the manga should be nearly done by then. The Black Clover series might even be over, so now would be a great time to announce a new season or a smooth continuation of the series.
It also depends on how much Studio Pierrot can handle. They are also working on Boruto, and if they get more work, it could affect the quality of both animes.
Source Material, Profitability, and the popularity of the series are the three main reasons why an anime series gets a new season. Let’s look in depth at both of these things and figure out how likely it is that Black Clover will have a fifth season.
Is Black Clover Popular?
The numbers show that Black Clover is one of the most popular anime and manga. In 2016, Honya Club put it third on their list of “Nationwide Bookstore Employees’ Recommended Comics.” The trailer for the movie was seen by 1.1 million people, and the animation was praised by many.
As was already said, the Black Clover manga has been well received, and with Black Clover Season 4, the anime also spent a long time at the top of the charts. If you look at the list of episodes on IMDB, you’ll see that most of them have more than nine ratings, and some even have 9.8/10 ratings.
Also, Snow Man’s “Grandeur,” the 13th OP of Black Clover, sold over 800,000 copies in its first week and was ranked number one. It stayed at the top for 47 weeks in a row.
On MyAnimeList, the anime has a score of 8.12. Since the last episode aired on March 30, 2021, it is no longer one of the most popular anime shows. Surely, when Season 5 of Black Clover comes out, it will get back to where it was.
What Will Happen in Black Clover Season 5?
In Black Clover Season 5, the Spade Kingdom Raid Arc will start up again. In episodes 168 and 170, the anime showed the beginning of the arc.
Asta must learn how to control his demon and go beyond everything he thought he could do. Asta and her allies must face the worst of the Spade Kingdom and beat the dark triad.
