Black Clover to Have 'Super Important Announcement' This Weekend
posted on by Karen Ressler
The combined second and third 2017 issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump announced on Monday that Yūki Tabata's Black Clover manga will have a "super important announcement" at a stage event at Jump Festa '17 this weekend.
Ryotaro Okiayu will host the event with Tabata and idol Honoka Akimoto (a Black Clover fan) as guests.
Tabata began the series in Weekly Shonen Jump in February 2015. Viz Media publishes the Black Clover manga in North America digitally in its Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, and also in print. The company describes the story:
SHONEN JUMP's breakaway hit of 2015, a fantasy action-adventure about mastering magical powers. Asta is a young boy who dreams of becoming the greatest mage in the kingdom. Only one problem – he can't use any magic! Luckily for Asta, he receives the incredibly rare five-leaf clover grimoire that gives him the power of anti-magic. Can someone who can't use magic really become the Wizard King? One thing's for sure – Asta will never give up!
The manga inspired an event anime that debuted at the Jump Special Anime Festa from November 27-December 4, and will get a DVD release bundled with the manga's 11th volume on May 2. XEBEC animated the episode, which features an original story starring Shun Horie (Phantasy Star Online 2: The Animation's Seiya Urisaka) as Asta and Sōma Saitō (Haikyu!!'s Tadashi Yamaguchi) as Yuno.
