Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King movie is delayed, and the announcement was made on the movie’s official website, which Netflix has also confirmed. It is nothing new, as many anime releases get delayed from time to time for various reasons, and no matter how sad this may sound, the best thing is that we will at least get to see the Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King movie.
We know that you are as disheartened as me after hearing the news of the Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King movie being delayed, but it’s avoidable since there has been a rise in the cases of Covid 19 in Japan.
The news for this movie was already confirmed in the weekly shonen jump issue that the Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King movie will feature the former wizard king named Konrad Leto Leto.
The confirmation news of the movie’s delay has already been updated by the official website of Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King.
Black clover is a widely acclaimed Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yuki Tabata, published in weekly shonen jump since 2015. The plot revolves around a young boy named Asta who was born without any magical power, and this secret has not been revealed to the world because, in the world of magical powers, everyone has their powers.
Asta decides to become the next wizard king along with his fellow mates from Black Bulls. The manga anime adaptation premiered in Japan in October 2017 and aired its final 117th episode in March 2021.
The official website of Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King movie announced on Friday that the movie would be delayed to June 16, 2023, from its original release date, which was March 31, 2023, due to the spread of Covid 19. Netflix has also confirmed the news regarding Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King movie debut getting delayed.
Yuki Tabata shared illustrations of Asta holding the infamous demon slayer sword clad in his Black Bulls outfit. During the 2023 Jump Fest, Yuki Tabata released another sketch that looked like a sneak peek of Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King movie.
The movie’s chief supervisor is the original manga creator, Yuki Tabata himself, and the original character designer. The staff members from the television anime series will also be returning as cast members for the movie.
Ayataka Tanemura will be directing the film, Itsuko Takeda will be the lead character designer, and Minako Seki will be the music composer for the Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King movie.
Toshihiko Seki will play Konrad Leto, a former Wizard King, and Marie Iitoyo will void the original character, Milly Maxwell.
Fumiya Takahashi will play Jester Galandros (romanization not confirmed), a mysterious wizard associated with the previous wizard king. Miyuki Sawashiro will voice Princia, and Houchu Ohtsuka will play Edward in the movie Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King.
Special News for Black Clover fans! During the film screening, they will give out volume 23.5 bonus books to the ticket holders. So make sure you do not miss this event, as this book will have the original character designs of films and some interviews.
This book will be available as a bonus and will only be limited in number, so make sure to book tickets early.
Looking at the trailer of Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King, it can be expected that the movie will be based on Konrad Leto, the previous wizard king. But as we watch more of the teaser, we also get a glimpse of him wielding a sword which we can assume to be his most powerful weapon hence the title.
We expect that the protagonist Asta and his mates will be put on trial again, and we will watch epic action-filled battles as they try to overcome all the challenges thrown at them. Besides the confirmed action-filled clips, there will also be clips of explosives, battles, astounding spells, and powers scaling on par with Saiyans (just kidding).
The Anime has covered all the events up to chapter 272. We do not know whether they will return with another set of episodes soon because the studio is currently focused on airing the movie in 2023.
Hopefully, we will be able to enjoy the movie on 16 June and get some news on the continuation of the Black Clover anime series.
The trailer for the movie has already been released, which you can watch on YouTube. It’s a must-watch trailer for Black Clover’s fans!
The trailer starts with Asta saying it’s a battle to decide who will be the next wizard king. Then the plot of Black Clover is shared as the trailer proceeds.
Finally, scenes of epic battles and many other favorite characters’ faces are revealed, apart from its high-quality graphics and compelling character designs. They have included very artistic fonts as well.
The trailer gives off edgy vibes and has left viewers expecting to finally witness Asta’s greatest battle after waiting for two long years.
The movie will be available on Crunchyroll and Netflix as well. You can watch or recap all the seasons on the mentioned platforms. Recapping the seasons is highly recommended for a better experience and understanding of the movie.
No matter how disheartening the news may be, we must also appreciate that the team is taking preventive measures to keep its members safe and follow the COVID-19 protocols. We do not want our favorite anime series cast to get sick, right?
