Manga Review: Black Clover, Vol 20

Hey all, Dani here.

Good morning everyone. Well, work is still going on as normal…well, mostly. We’ve had a lot of people decide to take the two weeks unpaid leave that the company is offering, so they’ve had to shut down certain areas to keep running the higher priority areas. So I get to keep going in to work and be in an area where it is utterly impossible to keep 6 feet between employees. Thankfully I have purchased a couple face masks, so I get a tiny bit of protection…though my ears are not happy. Plus I am dehydrating and overheating so quickly with the mask on. It’s not fun. And in Ohio they are now making it mandatory to wear a mask when going into businesses and such.

I am ready for this to be over, but I have a feeling we still have a long way to go. So I will just keep focusing on reading and on my blog. It’s all I can do.

Let’s go ahead and jump into the review.

In a world of magic, Asta, a boy with anti-magic powers, will do whatever it takes to become the Wizard King!

Asta is a young boy who dreams of becoming the greatest mage in the kingdom. Only one problem—he can’t use any magic! Luckily for Asta, he receives the incredibly rare five-leaf clover grimoire that gives him the power of anti-magic. Can someone who can’t use magic really become the Wizard King? One thing’s for sure—Asta will never give up!

The Black Bulls suddenly find themselves trapped in Dorothy’s magical dream world. With Dorothy having complete control over the space, escape seems impossible! Meanwhile, Asta has his hands full against powerful mirror magic wielded by a former ally!

My Thoughts

Rating: 5 stars

Dorothy’s magical dream world was fascinating. Oh man, that made for such an interesting hurdle to leap over, and I was just so utterly absorbed into the story. I feel like this story arc is one that I’m going to have to go back and re-read, because right now I’m going a couple months in between volumes and with the sheer number of books I read, it makes it difficult to fully remember the details of events and character moments.

But I know that we are seeing some seriously awesome magical breakthroughs in this story arc, and I am loving every moment of it.

Plus, at the end of this volume, my lady Charmy shows off some amazing badassness, and I am so excited to see what that means for the future.

I am sorry that this is a short review, but sometimes that happens with manga reviews. I really need to get back to watching the Black Clover anime because I’m sure watching this elf possession arc is going to be action-packed and fantastic.
