In a shocking series of events, it has been announced that the Black Clover anime will be airing its final episode soon. An announcement was made by the official Black Clover website, stating that the TV anime will come to an abrupt end after its 170th episode this March.
Black Clover Beginnings
TV anime, Black Clover, premiered in Japan in October 2017. The show was originally listed with 51 episodes, however, it continued into a new season with episode 52 in October 2018. A new season resumed once more in October 2019. The show went on a break starting on April 28 due to the effects of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on its production process and resumed on July 7 with episode 133.
Based on what their post says, the final episode will feature an “important announcement”. While the anime comes to an end, there will be an important announcement saying, “Avex Pictures‘ official YouTube channel will stream a live special on March 30 at 6:00 p.m. with the cast.”
Black Clover anime certainly had a rough start, unfairly slandered by fans, however, the anime rose above it all and quickly became a fan favorite.
The magical series has been a lucrative project for Studio Pierrot and TV Tokyo lists Black Clover as one of its highest-rated series. So this information about the anime suddenly coming to an end certainly comes as a shock to fans of the anime.

The anime’s “Clover Kingdom vs. Spade Kingdom” arc started on January 5 and the final episode will be on March 30, 2021.
Crunchyroll and Funimation are streaming the show.
However, the manga readers will not be so surprised about this impromptu development, considering that the anime has almost caught up with the manga. The Black Clover anime has finally reached the Spade Kingdom arc and the manga is also dealing with the Spade Kingdom arc, so, it would not take much time for the anime to catch up to the manga.
The Black Clover anime comes to an end because if it had continued and caught up with the manga, the anime would then need to put out filler content or animate its own original story apart from the manga.
Madly in love with anime and football...... it's disturbing.
