Black Clover Hypes New Year and New Movie With Special Sketch

Black Clover is hyping the new year and its new movie now in the works with a special sketch for the New Year’s Day holiday! Last year was a highly transformative year for Yuki Tabata’s original manga series as not only did it kick off a brand new war in the Spade Kingdom, but the anime ended its impressive 170 episode run. It unfortunately did not come with the announcement of more TV episodes coming in the future, but the final episode revealed that the first feature film in the franchise is now in the works for a release soon.

It has yet to be revealed when Black Clover’s new movie will be hitting theaters in Japan, but fans are keeping a close eye on each of the manga’s developments for clues in what could be coming in the future of the series. As Tabata’s original manga enters its sixth year of running in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, fans and Tabata are looking ahead to the bright future as the manga is clearly showing no signs of slowing down any time soon. You can check out the special Black Clover art for New Year’s Day below from its official Twitter account:

The anime came to an end with a major cliffhanger that cut the series off right before Asta and the other Clover Kingdom knights made their raid on the Spade Kingdom. The manga release has now gone quite a bit further than from where the anime came to an end, but there’s still enough that could be covered if this was all adapted for the new movie. It might gleam over some of the more detailed moments, but the fight scenes all take place at the same time and are over relatively quickly in terms of how the anime handled the manga’s fights in the past.

There’s also a chance that the new movie could spark an original story all of its own, but it would have to take place within the tight timeframe of the anime’s cliffhanger and the Spade Kingdom Raid arc. That makes each new chapter all the more intriguing for what’s to come next for the franchise, and what’s coming next in this new year. What do you think?
