I haven't read the manga, but the wizard king has the unifier death flag. Like William the just from legacy of kain. The wizard king will die and the whole kingdom will swear bloody vengeance. If this was a different type of anime townsfolk would start lynching the midnight sun in the streets and joining the army in droves.
Since Black Clover is heavily influenced by Naruto and Hokages usually die in epic ways, Its kinda obvious whats going to happen. I hope i'm wrong and Black Clover does something more original than copying Naruto.
m8.Its shounen everyone copies everyone its how it its.They all started from copying db,then copying naruto,and others.U cant put slice of life elements or high school into this type of story.It must go on like this.U need to keep story forward I mean how could asta and yuno or even yami get to wizard kings lvl he can stop time so they need to make him dead.Plus there is something that is going to happen in this arc that is totally original ull see
I know shounen are similar to each other, its the same genre so of course they are. I'm talking about straight up copying. Like if another anime copied One Piece and the MC wants to be the bandit king and collects a crew, you can't help but notice the similarities. Its the same for me with Black Clover and Naruto. I still enjoy it tho
Funnaly enough the big simelaretys only happen in the anime. the manga acctualy has a lot of origenal ideas but the anime ruins it by filling out with filler.
For exempel: In the anime the devil in Astas grimoire is treated like Naruto´s ninetaled fox but in the manga it is bearly mentuned and handled in a really intresting and creative way (which I will not spoil)
