Black Clover episode 22 review
This week, Asta fights a monster named Jimmy, and all the cliche jokes and sayings continue. We hear the good old “the strong must survive, the weak must die” from one of the villains, we hear the “call me captain” thing again, we hear “you’ll just get in the way,” I mean, we hear it all. Black Clover is ruining My Hero Academia for me because both so far are extremely cliche shonen anime. MHA still has a long way to go to redeem itself, at least, but BC is too far in to change at this point.
The episode gets a few points for some pretty cool battle scenes, but otherwise it feels like I’ve seen this a hundred times already, and it’s just not getting any better.
