BC 7: Royal candidate

Black Clover episode 7 review

BC 7

This series continues to be the most cliched show I’ve ever seen. Now we’ve got the stereotypical princess snob who thinks she’s royalty and treats everyone else like scum. I’m not saying that having such a character is a bad thing; I do not hate Noelle, in fact, I like her. But the way this episode plays out – she treats Asta like garbage, then Asta has to come to her rescue when her magic goes astray, and the two become friends – it just seems so overdone.

That’s the problem with Black Clover – there’s nothing new to it. It’s all the same old stuff we’ve seen in all sort of other shows, combined into one. When is Black Clover going to come up with something new? That’s what I’m waiting to see.

Character of the episode: Noelle
