It’s about a weak-ass mc Deku who doesn’t possess magic powers at the beginning of the series and some kind of event makes him gain powers just like our black clover MC Asta. They both have to excessively train their physical body to keep up with their world.
Deku lives in a world where being a superhero is a commonality and an occupation. He aims to be the No 1 Hero which is similar to the wizard king in the black clover world. Deku attends a prestigious school to become a hero where they undergo various challenges and tests to further advance their capabilities.
Deku and Asta are both underdogs at the beginning of the series and need to work their way up in the world using more effort than everybody else does in order to stay relevant in a world where the extraordinary has become ordinary.
Both series are of the new generation of classic Shonen Nekketsu. The quirky characters and comedic relief are similar as well
Bleach is about an ordinary high schooler Ichigo Kurosaki who becomes a soul reaper due to some unfortunate circumstances and gained supernatural powers. He subsequently inherits the responsibility to hunt down the dark spirits called hollows that plague the human world. Later he is joined by his friends as well who each has unique abilities.
Both anime are Shonen anime that is highly enjoyable, have great fights, and are similar in character and story-wise. They both have a series of funny and serious moments. Both the MCs possess a dark power that ideally shouldn’t exist. The two big organizations in these two series are quite similar with a bunch of captains leading their own squads and one figure standing above them all just like the magic emperor in Black clover.
2. Fairy Tail
Fairy tail is about a world where magic guilds exist and take certain requests to earn money. Fairy tail is one such guild that is filled with loud and eccentric characters just like the black bulls in black clover. Both the associations have an “ I will do anything to protect my comrades and to further my guild/squad prestige “ type mentality.
The MCs are very similar as well. They are badass with a loud personality, have demon powers, and never give up. The love interest of both series is quite similar in many ways.
The series is also set in a world where magic is a dominant force. The basic members of the guild are similar as wellas got the loud & dim protagonist who’s always yelling, basic guild member clichés: the guy who says “real man”, a drunk mostly naked witch, & more.
This is a must-watch Shonen series which is quite long like Black clover as well.
Naruto is definitely one of my favorite must-watch series. This series Naruto is about an orphan boy named Naruto who is ostracized and discriminated against by the whole village He is very hyperactive and hardheaded just like our black clover mc Asta and has a one-track mind toward his goal of becoming the Hokage the village leader.
A character name Rock Lee can not use Ninjutsu. Just was like Asta was treated as inferior due to his lack of magic power although it is considerably worse in Naruto.
The Hokage is a well-respected entity in their ninja world which is analogous to the wizard king in black clover. Both the MCs are weak at first and turn into one of the strongest characters in the series as the story progresses. The source of both their powers is a demon and they both possess happy-go-lucky personalities. They even have a similar catchphrase and similar rivals – Sasuke and Yuno.
Although Naruto came first, black clover fans will absolutely love this series if they haven’t watched it yet. They both are very similar in character arcs, goals, and art style.
They are made by the same studio and are of the same genre – “long action Shonen”.
