I will be extremely honest at this point and say that I felt disappointed after reading the latest chapter of Black Clover. It was short, and I expected a lot of action from Noelle throughout the chapter, but it only focused on explanations and left us at another cliffhanger. However, I am expecting that the upcoming Black Clover chapter 178 will give us more action and show-off Noelle’s new destructive magic power to its fullest potential
The latest chapter picked up right from where it left off as Noelle unleashed her latent magic potential. The beginning of the chapter even gave explanations of how people can be either born with immense magic power, or can cultivate it with hard work and diligent efforts. But the royals are blessed with such a huge reserve of the magic power that they choose to ignore training and never fight on the frontlines, which means that they can’t grow as much as they have the potential to. Noelle, however, has faced numerous life and death situations in the past, being a member of the Black Bulls, and thus was able to not only refine her magic powers and bring it under her control, but also unleash the latent potential hidden within her.
Not only the Elf, but even Solid are surprised at the large amount of magic power condensing around Noelle and she displays complete control of her surroundings, something that she never had in the beginning of the show! The title of the chapter, “Dancing Princess of the Battlefield”, suits her perfectly as she shows her moves later in the panels!
Black Clover Chapter 178 Spoilers
Even though the Elf is really surprised at the magic power condensing around Noelle, and her control over it, she still thinks that she can take her down and fire her needles at her. Noelle is able to dodge them all effectively and in a smooth motion, as if she was swimming in the water.
The Elf fires more and more needles at her thinking that if she can tear her armor, the surrounding space will tear Noelle apart. However, she keeps on dodging the incoming attacks and at this point, we see Nozel having a look at Noelle and think about their dead mother, who was one of the strongest mages in the capital when she was alive.
As Noelle comes close to the Elf to attack her, she creates a shield and blocks the attack and tells that she’s going to send her to hell. However, the Elf notices that Noelle has broken through her mana control and Noelle reveals that everything her magic touches is her domain and pierces her shield and declares that she will defeat her and move forward!
The chapter came to a conclusion at this point, but it is fairly clear where the story is going and what you can expect from the upcoming chapter 178 of Black Clover. We will still see the ongoing battle between Noelle and the Elf, who I assume isn’t going to go down so easily. Moreover, Noelle’s siblings, especially, Solid is going to keep getting surprised at how strong his sister has become and also accept that he’s no longer a match for her.
Since the chapter’s dropped just recently, there won’t be any spoilers for some day and we can only make predictions at this point. We can safely say that the next chapter will focus on the current fight and we will see the conclusion by the end of the chapter. Noelle will take down the Elf, and try to tend to the wounds of Nozel and her siblings. We might also see a glimpse of what the other magic knights are upto, and where exactly are Asta, Yuno and the other Black Bulls, because it’s been too long and they haven’t made their appearance in the Royal Palace or the capital yet!
Black Clover Chapter 178 Release Date
Since there’s no break next week, you can expect the upcoming chapter to drop according to its schedule. However, you can expect the scanlations to leak a few days prior to the official release. Even if you read the leaked chapters, make sure to read them at official websites as well to show your support to the manga community and the mangaka!
