Black Clover episode 16 review
In probably the best episode in a long time, Asta fights off Lotus before getting into a battle with Mars. Yuno tried to defeat Mars and couldn’t. That means that Asta gets his shot at Mars, and he’s going to do it the only way he knows how: brute force.
I hate that term, by the way. “Brute force” was a form of mathematics that was tedious and time-consuming. It wasn’t any fun. That’s what I think of every time I hear that phrase.
Anyway, Asta goes at it with Mars, even while Yuno, the supposedly fierce rival, thinks back happily about his semi-brother. I thought Yuno was going to be a Gary Oak. Here, he’s more like a mentor to Asta than anything else.
In any case, this episode was good. It keeps me interested in Black Clover… for now.
