Suwabe plays Yami Sukehiro in October TV anime

This year's 34th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing on Monday that Junichi Suwabe will play the character Yami Sukehiro in the television anime adaptation of Yūki Tabata's Black Clover manga. The magazine's 35th issue on July 31 will reveal the voice actress for Noelle and other Black Bulls members.

The show's staff will also reveal more information at the upcoming "Jump Victory Carnival 2017" event, which takes place in Tokyo on July 22 and in Osaka on July 29.

The Crunchyroll Arabic YouTube channel previously streamed a preview video for the anime on Thursday. (Note: The video below is region blocked in some Middle Eastern countries and in Asia.)

The anime will premiere in Japan in October on TV Tokyo, and Crunchyroll will stream the series starting in October.

The anime stars:

Newcomer Gakuto Kajiwara (Eromanga Sensei background character) as Asta

Nobunaga Shimazaki (World Trigger's Hyuse, Free!'s Haruka Nanase, My Love Story!!'s Makoto Sunakawa) as Yuno

28-year-old anime director Tatsuya Yoshihara (Monster Musume, Yatterman Night, Muromi-san, Long Riders!) is directing the anime at Studio Pierrot. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Is the order a rabbit?, Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, Yatterman Night) is handling the series composition. Itsuko Takeda (Ristorante Paradiso, Level E, Blue Drop) is the character designer and Kumiko Tokunaga (2nd season of Kingdom) is the sub-character designer. Kosei Takahashi (key animation for Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, Monster Hunter Stories RIDE ON) is the prop designer, Aiko Shinohara (Fairy Tail, The Heroic Legend of Arslan) is handling the color design, and Minako Seki (The Silver Guardian, both seasons of Kingdom) is composing the music.

Crunchyroll describes the series:

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!

Tabata began the series in Weekly Shonen Jump in February 2015. Viz Media publishes the manga in North America digitally in its Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, and also in print. The manga inspired an event anime that screened in Japan in November and December. The event anime then shipped on DVD with the manga's 11th volume on May 2.
