Time is winding down for “Black Clover” with its final episode set to air next month. However, it appears that aside from seeing the farewell offering, there is an important announcement happening on Mar. 30. According to director Tatsuya Yoshihara, there will be a bombshell revealed at the end of episode 170, adding further suspense to fans who religiously followed the series.

"I have been involved with Black Clover for about five years, ever since the day I began planning its PV. It will end with episode 170, so I hope you will watch over Asta until the end. Please look forward to a final major announcement," Yoshihara stated.

So other than wanting to see the climax of “Black Clover,” fans are now cooking up their wild speculations on what the big announcement would be. It is something unusual for an anime series as popular as “Black Clover.”

It could be anything. It could be the announcement of another series where “Black Clover” could crossover. Better yet, the Japanese anime could take a page out of other manga films and produce a movie. Seeing how “Black Clover” has garnered success since premiering in October 2017, that is a big possibility.

The show originally listed 51 episodes but continued to a new season with episode 52 in 2018. It continued into 2019. Like most, the show went on forced break due to the pandemic. It resumed in July with episode 133.

So far, episode 162 of “Black Clover’ is the talk of the town. It recently went live with Asta letting loose a new form against his demonic foe. It was one of the biggest episodes to see yet with Asta continuing his fight with the Clover Kingdom on his shoulders.

Fans were elated with the latest episode of “Black Clover” and remains to trend on social media. All eyes are on the next one as anime fans gear up for the last couple of episodes and try to figure out what the big bombshell will be after episode 170.
