Opening Theme: Black Catcher v3 by Vickeblanka
Ending Theme: New Page by Intersection

Last Time: The Bulls finally returned to their base, which was still destroyed from a previous battle. Yami's magical beats escaped, so Yami tasked the Bulls with getting them back. After various mishaps, the beats are safely returned; meanwhile, Henry attempted to rebuild the Bulls' base by taking input from everyone, but in the end decides to simply rebuild it the way it was.

This Time: While Yami investigates Asta's demon situation, Charlotte tries to drum up the courage to confess her feelings to the Black Bulls captain.

NOTES: With this episode, we return to manga canon - albeit, another more low-key episode.

Also, for those using DVRs, note that Black Clover will be airing at around 1:50 tonight, due to an anime short Toonami is airing at 12:30.

Well Charlotte's certainly going overboard.

Oh well. This performance by The Pillows makes up for it.

STEVEN BLUM INTERVIEW! Totally makes up for it!

As if Gordon wasn't creepy enough.

Yeah, Charlotte getting emotional was eye roll worthy. But at least she admitted her true feelings to her knights. That's progress. Feel kinda bad for Sol though. The love triangle continues I guess.

Makes sense they're starting their research into the Devils by seeking out others with Forbidden Curses like Charlotte and one was right under Yami's nose, Gordon. I like that it seems we're finally gonna get more back story on him and maybe his family.

I always thought Gordon was more sympathetic than creepy -- after all, he's just a lonely, soft-spoken wallflower who wants friends -- but this episode suggests that they're going to start emphasizing the creepy part. (That close-up at the end where his face takes on a skull-like appearance was an effective moment.) Since he's one of the best characters on the show, I hope things turn out well for him. As for the main plot: between the zany, frenetic hijinks (which is not my style of humor, at least the way this show does it) and the predictable romcom plot complications, it was a real chore for me to sit through. I hope the Black Bulls get back to fighting soon, because that's what Black Clover does best.

What's up with Mattel's fondness with Scare Glow in new Masters of the Universe merchandise? Maybe because he's a FREAKING SKELETON THAT GLOWS IN THE DARK, which is more toyetic than a guy with just a skull for a face, like Skeletor.
