Black Clover episode 9 review
Asta, Noelle, and their pal go and kill some boars, which turns out to be much easier than it was made out to be. But as they go to the “old man’s” village (seriously, what is the obsession with the term “old man” recently in anime?), they find that PEOPLE. ARE. DYING. Would you please shut down the system?
The “old man” is dead or at least practically dead, as a result of these villains. So it’s up to Asta to save them, and it turns out he’s able to do a lot for someone with no magic. Asta’s pal also tries helping, but Noelle is kind of useless. She finally decides at the very end of the episode she’s going to do something, but we’ll have to wait to find out what that’s gonna be.
Overall, probably the best episode so far.
Character of the episode: Asta
I thought about giving it to the “old man.”
