Black Clover, as you may already know, is one of the most popular series at the moment. There are some issues with the anime as it doesn’t quite capture the attention of viewers the way that the manga does, but it still has managed to get quite popular. In fact, Studio Pierrot wants ‘Black Clover’ to become the new ‘Naruto’ and be on air for years to come!
If you’ve been reading the manga of the series, or watching the anime, then you’d know that it’s filled with cliches and you can easily draw parallels with a few other popular stories in a lot of segments. It’s a classic Shonen anime where the main character has to work extremely hard in order to become strong, there’s a hidden power within him that comes to his rescue when he’s in a pinch, he’s got reliable friends that he can fall back on, strong villains that he’s got the defeat, and of course, a childhood friend who’s also his rival.
I personally enjoy reading the manga, rather than watching the anime – and this is true for all the stories, not just Black Clover – but I do like to see all the epic sequences get animated so I watch the anime as well. The Black Clover episode made it’s debut on 3rd October, 2017 and is still going on at the time of writing this. There were originally supposed to be 51 episodes in the first season; however, it’s got an extension recently which is likely to cover another arc.
If you’ve not started watching Black Clover anime, then you’d want to know how many fillers there are that you should skip, considering that it’s supposed to the next Naruto and there’s a chance that there will be a lot of fillers. However, fortunately there haven’t been a lot of filler episodes yet in the show!
If you’d like to know which episodes to skip, then we’ve made a complete Black Clover episodes list specifying the episodes as canon and fillers so you know which one you need to watch and which one you should skip.

Black Clover – The Story!
Black Clover is a manga written and drawn by Yuuki Tabata which began to be published on February 16, 2015 in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.
The story revolves around Asta and Yuno, two orphans who were abandoned together at the same church in Hage Village. They’ve been best of friends and want to grow up strong in order to become the Magic Emperor. The only problem is that both of them are quite different – Asta doesn’t have any magic power at all, while Yuno is a genius when it comes to using magic.
At the age of 15, when the young mages get their grimoires, Yuno receives a 4-leaf clover grimoire which is supposed to be spectacular as most of the people receive a 3-leaf one. This is also a big deal because the first ever Magic Emperor also had a 4-leaf clover grimoire.
However, Asta receives no grimoire at all! But, when Yuno gets in a pinch and is threatened, the truth about Asta’s power is revealed as he receives a 5-leaf clover grimoire which is a ‘black clover’, a book of anti-magic! This grimoire gives him access to a huge sword that can cut through all kinds of magic, making Asta able to go toe to toe against powerful mages.
