So episode nine of Black Clover, “Beasts” recently dropped, and for the first time (I think) I’ve mostly got positive things to say about the series. Now I know you’ve probably heard myself and just about everyone else say how boring, unoriginal, loud, obnoxious,…
Wait we’ve done this skit before?
Right so like I was saying, this week we actually get some character progression for both Magna and Noelle. We see where Magna got his roots and speaking habits and Noelle learns a new defensive spell. Wow when you write that down it really looks less impre… “I said quit with the negativity!”
Overall I still really dislike the show if I’m being honest, but this episode wasn’t that bad. Sure Noelle played the token Sakura this week, and her call to protect the villagers wasn’t all the believable, but hey at least it looks like she’s getting control of her magic. I’m betting she can only use defensive magic effectively, but who knows. The highlight may have been with Magna this week who receives a shocking blow when he discovers his father-figure dead in the village. We’d just enjoyed yet another flashback to get to know this man and next thing you know he’s dead! I did not see that coming.
And that’s really the highlight for this week. What did you think of the episode? Enjoying the episodes with less Asta a little more?
