This year's 32nd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that Megumi Han (Hunter × Hunter's Gon, DEVILMAN crybaby's Miki Makimura) is joining cast of the television anime adaptation of Yūki Tabata's Black Clover manga as Kahono. The anime will soon enter the Seabed Temple Arc of Tabata's original manga.
Kumi Koda (The Law of Ueki, Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse, Final Fantasy X-2) is performing the new opening theme song "Guess Who Is Back" for the anime, and the all-female dance and vocal group FAKY (Cardfight!!

The anime premiered in Japan last October. Crunchyroll is streaming the series in Japanese with English subtitles, and Funimation is streaming the show's English dub. The anime's website lists the anime for a full year with 51 episodes.

Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Is the order a rabbit?, Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, Yatterman Night) is handling the series composition.

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.
