Black Clover is a Japanese anime series adapted from the manga of the same title written and illustrated by Yūki Tabata. Produced by Pierrot and directed by Tatsuya Yoshihara, the series premiered on October 3, 2017 on TV Tokyo in Japan.[1] Kazuyuki Fudeyasu wrote the scripts, Itsuko Takeda designed the characters, and Minako Seki composed the music.[2] The first season, which adapts the first eight volumes of the manga, was initially listed as running for 13 episodes,[3] but was later expanded to 51 episodes.[4] A second season premiered on October 2, 2018.[5][6] The series uses fourteen different pieces of theme music: seven opening themes and seven ending themes.

An original video animation produced by Xebec that is based on the series was shown at the 2016 Jump Festa between November 27 and December 18, 2016.[7][8][9] It was bundled with the 11th volume of the manga, which was released on May 2, 2017.[10] A second original video animation was shown at the 2018 Jump Festa.[11]

In 2017, both Crunchyroll and Funimation licensed the series for an English-language release in North America. Crunchyroll is simulcasting the series,[12] while Funimation is producing an English dub as it airs.[13][14] Their adaptation premiered on December 2, 2017, on Adult Swim's Toonami block.[15] The first DVD and Blu-ray compilation was released by Avex Pictures on February 23, 2018, with individual volumes being released monthly.[16]
