As soon as I finished watching this new episode of Black Clover, I quickly scrambled to write my review! Terrible, terrible things have happened, with our characters backed further into a corner! It was just so intense, I couldn’t keep my reactions to myself and I kept laughing or screaming!
Japanese Original Episode Title: 逆境
Yuno blasted the witch with his newfound spell, and she crash-landed right onto where Charmy was enjoying her meal! But when the witch was supposed to suck Charmy’s mana, our resident glutton thought she was going to steal her food, so she got angry. Really angry! Meanwhile, Fuegoleon was returned to Leopold, Asta, and Noelle as quickly as he disappeared, although he took QUITE a beating…
Charmy’s turn: Thank God, Charmy’s silly food hunting had a point in the end! And it totally caught me by surprise, in more ways than one! To think that she’ll be the one to stop that life-draining witch, even suddenly becoming scary-serious doing it! Now we know that if we want Charmy to act cool, you have to take her food! Although, we might get beaten up afterward. If you want her to admire you, however, then save her food! I laughed so hard when she saw Yuno as her meal-saving Prince! I didn’t expect her, out of all people, to have a crush on our other protagonist! Personally, I don’t mind this ship at all, even if Yuno just happened to save her meal as he was trying to stop the enemy. Plus points added cause I found Charmy’s sneaky multi-tasking amusing, finding a way to eat just to keep lying down beside her crush! I don’t know about you, but I think this is an important development?
Good as dead: Suddenly seeing Fuegoleon so lifeless, armless, and bleeding to death killed me inside! I can’t believe my new favorite has already been incapacitated, just like that! Who in the world was that person he saw, and what grudge did they have to specifically target and kill him? I’m so mad!! I’m also super sad for Leopold, who practically idolized his older brother and captain! No wonder he was that shocked! Good thing Noelle still remained calm for him and Asta, realizing that Fuegoleon was still alive but barely hanging for dear life! At that moment I wished she had healing magic like her cousin! Ooh, I hope Fuegoleon will still be alright, despite losing an arm. He’s one of the few righteous and amazing characters in this show! We can’t afford to lose him! But who can save him at this point? If someone did come to the rescue, will they arrive before he dies completely? Aah! The anxiety!!
Asta’s comeback: At this point, I can truly say that Asta’s resilience is already close to supernatural. I mean, he’s basically the embodiment of mind over matter! He was bleeding a lot, and if he were a normal person, he’s supposed to have already fainted! Yet he still had the strength to foil Valtos’ spatial magic repeatedly, exact revenge on Rades, and even dispel the curse on his wounds by using his anti-magic on himself! Sure, he’s most likely only running on adrenaline right now and powered up by the need to defend himself and his friends as well. But still, it’s an incredibly amazing feat! If only the other Magic Knights could see him now, I’m certain no one would laugh at him anymore for aiming to be the Wizard King!
