‘”Work towards your dream and don’t give up” is the theme I thought up for Black Clover and which is being expressed in the anime. The anime embodies what I imagined to be the “greatness of magic” very well. Anybody, young and old, will be able to enjoy it and I hope everybody can feel the magic and fantasy!’
