Asta and Yuno’s individual quests to become the Wizard King continues in a new anime film, titled Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King.


The orphans have had quite the rivalry over the course of the Black Clover anime, which is based on Yuki Tabata’s manga of the same name, but it goes to new heights in the forthcoming feature.

Fans of the anime have been enjoying the series since 2017, but it went on hiatus after the end of season 4 in 2021, which seemingly spelled the end of the franchise. However, that soon proved not to be the case because of the new film.

What is Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King based on?

Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King sees Asta and Yuno face their most formidable enemy yet, Conrad Leto, a former Wizard King who has been brought back to life.
