Aside from being 30 years ahead of the rest of the world in terms of technology, more than three-fourths of this strange city’s population consists of students honing their psychic abilities as espers in various institutions.

The story of the anime focuses on Mo Fan, one day he found himself in a sort of parallel world where magic was replaced with the essence of science. The most capable students are taught here to master the wonders of spell working in order to fend off large destructive beasts that lurk in the forests surrounding the city.

But just like his previous life, Mo Fan is still a son of a poor farmer. Despite these obstacles, he wishes to attend a magic school in order to become a magician—a highly respected and lucrative trade—in order to repay his father for his efforts.

Mo Fan is accepted into a prestigious magic school.

Magi: The Labyrinth Of Magic

Magi: The Labyrinth Of Magic

Genre: Adventure, Action, Fantasy

Length: 25 Ep

MAL Rating: 8.03

There are several mysterious labyrinths scattered across the world that contain incredible treasures. These ambiguous places, known as “Dungeons,” are said to be the work of Magi, a rare class of magicians who also help individuals in building their empires by guiding them to a dungeon. 

Aladdin, a warm-hearted young magician who has spent his life alone, is eager to travel the world after finally leaving his home behind. He sets out on his journey with only his advisor Ugo—a djinn that Aladdin can summon with his flute. Even so, after destroying a local merchant’s supply cart, Aladdin easily becomes friends with the brave Alibaba Saluja.

Now in order to compensate for the damage, Alibaba suggests that they should attempt to conquer the nearest dungeon, thus embarking on an epic adventure that will determine the fate of the entire world.

Like Black Clover, Magi is also a classic and well-known Shounen anime with a magical backstory. The story of the Magi, like Asta’s, focuses on a boy who chooses to follow his heart rather than what others say.



Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Supernatural

Length: 12 Ep

MAL Rating: 6.30

Guts, who has now been branded for death and is bound to be hunted by demons until the day he dies, embarks on a journey to defy such a heinous fate, as waves of beasts relentlessly pursue him. He accepts the monstrous blade Dragonslayer and vows to seek revenge on the perpetrator, assassinating the very man he once looked up to and considered a friend.

During his journey, he met several unlikely allies, including Puck, a small elf, and Isidro, an adolescent thief looking to learn swordsmanship from the former mercenary. As the motley crew gradually comes together after eventually joining Guts on his quest, they will have to survive several life and death situations, unlike anything they have ever faced before.

Like Black Clover, the main character of the berserk (Guts) uses a sword in order to fight, so if you are looking for an anime like black clover you can try this one out. If you are a guy who prefers reading then I suggest you to go with the manga of Berserk as the manga is more amazing than the anime adaptation.

One Piece

anime like black clover

Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy

Length: 1011+ Ep

MAL Rating: 8.62

Based on a manga by the same name written by the richest manga artist Eiichiro Oda the story of the anime focuses on Monkey D. Luffy.

Gol D. Roger was recognized as the “Pirate King,” the most potent and infamous person that ever sailed the Grand Line. The World Government’s capture and targeted killing of Roger caused a global upheaval. His final words before death confirmed the existence of the world’s finest treasure, One Piece.

Join Monkey D. Luffy, a 17-year-old boy who defies the stereotype of a pirate. Rather than the popular image of a wicked, seasoned, toothless pirate ravaging villages for fun, Luffy’s encouragement for being a pirate is a pure wonder: the potential of an exciting adventure that will lead him to intriguing people and, eventually, the promised treasure.

Like Asta in Black Clover, Luffy also acts dumb in a normal situation but during the fight and series situation, he becomes serious and shows his true strength in order to fight the enemies.

The Seven Deadly Sins

Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Comedy

Length: 24 Ep

The plot of the anime is based on a manga written by Nakaba Suzuki and focuses on The Seven Deadly Sins, a band of knights in Britannia that disbanded ten years ago after being framed for plotting a coup of the Liones Kingdom by the Holy Knights, who detached them before taking control in the immediate wake of a rebellion they organized.

They were defeated by the Holy Knights, but legends continued unabated that these legendary warriors, widely recognized as the “Seven Deadly Sins,” were indeed alive.

Later, Elizabeth, the third Princess of Liones, embarks on an adventure to find the long-lost knights widely recognized as the Seven Deadly Sins, so that they can help her in restoring her crumbling kingdom, but it will not be easy as many hardships await them.

Even though the plot of both anime are different but I am pretty sure that it will be a great watch for any anime fan looking for an anime like Black clover.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

But their mother does not resurrect; rather, Edward loses a leg whereas Alphonse loses his body, and in order to save him, Edward selflessly sacrifices his hand to bind Alphonse’s soul to metal armor. They must now discover the Philosopher’s Stone in an attempt to reestablish their bodies to their previous state.

Anime fans who like Black Clover will also gonna enjoy this series as the world-building is extremely interesting, and each character has their own quirks and intriguing personality.

Food Wars! Shokugeki No Souma

anime like black clover

Genre: Gourmet, Ecchi, Comedy

Length: 86 Ep

MAL Rating: 8.20

Souma Yukihira (the anime’s main character) has been cooking with his father Jouichirou for as long as he can memorize. As a chef at his father’s restaurant, he had also spent years fine-tuning his gourmet skills and enhancing new dishes to wow their customers. He aspires to one day exceed his father’s skill and take over the restaurant, but he is surprised to discover that Jouichirou is closing the restaurant to take a job in New York.

Before embarking on his journey, he has sent Souma to the prestigious Tootsuki Culinary Academy, an elite cooking school known for its tough competition, with a history of only 10% of students graduating.

As Souma and his fellow classmates struggle to cope with Tootsuki’s demanding lifestyle, only considerably larger and much more difficult challenges await him, putting his father’s years of training to the assessment.

Even though there is no action in this anime but still the main protagonist of Food War uses knives to make dishes as Asta in Black Clover uses a sword in order to fight enemies.

Nemeses are powerful and enigmatic demonic entities that fall out of the sky and vaporize everything they come in contact with. Sorcerers, those who have survived an encounter with a Nemesis but were infected in the process, are the only ones who can combat these creatures.

Seth, a Pompo Hills Sorcerer, embarks on an adventure to annihilate all the Nemeses. Doc and Mélie, other Sorcerers who share his ideal, accompany him. Their ultimate purpose is to create a world wherein Sorcerers are no longer victimized for being infected, and to that end, they have to destroy the source of the Nemeses themselves: the mythical Radiant.

Both Black Clover and Radiant comply with a pretty typical battle shonen formula. The central protagonist in both series strives to be the best sorcerer/wizard king in the world.

Hunter x Hunter

anime like black clover

Genre: Action, Adventure, Superpowers

Length: 148 Ep

MAL Rating: 9.15

Hunter is a title given to people who have passed a special exam required to become a hunter, which was obviously not easy. But the people who succeed in becoming hunters are permitted to do many things that a normal person is not permitted to do, such as hunt monsters and travel to any region of the world (maybe also outside of the world if you can go ) where a normal human is not permitted.

The plot of Hunter x Hunter revolves around a twelve-year-old boy named Gon, who was told that his parents had died, but when he discovers that his father was a hunter, he abandons his family in order to continue his adventure as a hunter. Now in order to find his father, Gon decides to become a hunter. His journey to find his father, however, will not be easy, because he’ll have to survive a number of life-or-death situations that are out of his comfort zone.

Gon and Asta are typical shounen protagonists with a goal in mind. They have that one main cool friend who is talented from the start, and like Black Clover, if you want to become a hunter in Hunter x Hunter, you must go through a test.

My Hero Academia

Length: 113 Ep

MAL Rating: 7.96

The story of My Hero Academia is based on a manga written byKōhei Horikoshi that revolves around a boy named Izuku Midoriya (nicknamed Deku).

The story is set up in an alternate world where most of the people have a sort of supernatural ability widely known as ” Quirk ” and the emergence of “quirks,” or newly discovered superpowers has been progressively rising over the years, people possess different powers such as fire from element manipulation to shapeshifting.

But the main point is that in a world where 80 percent of the population possesses superpowers, our main protagonist Deku does not, but he is determined not to give up on his dream of becoming a hero one day. And it has seemed that his persistence paid off: one day, Izuku encountered All Might, the number one hero and his personal idol. All Might’s quirk is a one-of-a-kind ability that can be passed down through generations, and fortunate for Midoriya as All Might has chosen Izuku as his heir!

Despite the fact that he gained the power of one of the most powerful hero but still his journey to becoming a hero acknowledged by people will not be that as during his journey he must have to counter a lot of villains with great strength.

UQ Holder!

UQ Holder!

Genre: Action, Fantasy, Sci-fi

MAL Rating: 6.95

The story of the UQ Holder! revolves around Touta Konoe a normal young boy raised in a small rural town. His regular life takes a huge turn when his mentor, Katherine McDowell, discloses herself to be a vampire after saving him from a mortal wound, end eventually leads him to also become an immortal as well.

Touta, who has always would like to travel the world, suddenly understands his dream of reaching the top of Amanomihashira, a tower that leads to outer space. Along the way, he eventually finds the “UQ Holders,” a secret society of immortals like himself. Touta decided to embark on his own unique, magical adventure, gaining new comrades and mentorship along the way.

Both anime feature main characters who lack magic and rely on swords as weapons. Both main characters have demon-like abilities. These are filled with an exciting journey to their desired location. So, if you are in search of an anime like Black Clover then you can also try this one out if you still haven’t.

Jujutsu Kaisen

Length: 24 Ep

MAL Rating: 8.71

Yuuji Itadori, a high schooler, usually spends his days at the clubroom or the hospital, where he frequently visits his bedridden grandfather, indulging in baseless paranormal activities with the Occult Club. But even so, when he unintentionally comes into contact with a cursed item, his nice relaxing lifestyle appears to take a strange turn. After swallowing the said item, revealed to be a finger belonging to the demon Sukuna Ryoumen, the “King of Curses,” Yuuji finds himself pushed into the world of Curses—dreadful beings formed from human malice and negativity.

After learning that his recently discovered power can seriously harm those around him, he pledged to use it for good. Later, he enters Tokyo Metropolitan Jujutsu Technical High School to learn how to control his cursed energy under the instruction and supervision of Gojo Satoru, the most compelling Jujutsu sorcerer.

Even so, the theme and the plot of Jujutsu Kaisen is different from Black Clover but still, I thought that it is one of the best anime to watch if you are searching for an anime similar to Black Clover as like Black Clover the main protagonist of the Jujutsu Kaisen also possessed powers that are out of his control.

Fairy Tail

Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy

Length: 328 Ep

MAL Rating: 7.59

Magic is a part of everyday life in the mystical land of Fiore. There are multiple magical guilds at the heart of all magical activities that serve as gathering space for like-minded wizards to band together and take on task requests. Among them, Fairy Tail stands out as a haven of power, energy, and family.

Lucy Heartfilia is a young girl on the chase for celestial gate keys, and her ambition is to join this prestigious guild and move ahead to the rank of the wizard. During her search, she encounters Natsu Dragneel and his sidekick Happy, who has been on the search for Natsu’s adoptive father, the dragon Igneel.

If you enjoy the Black Clover, I recommend watching Fairy Tail because I like how both use magic in similar ways. Asta reminds me of Natsu in how carelessly he acts and how much he seeks to improve, so the shows are similar, and Yuno keeps reminding me of Gray, who is the total opposite of Natsu and more calm and collective.

A huge demon is known as the Kyuubi, the Nine-Tailed Fox, attacked Konoha village, the Hidden Leaf Village, and wreaked havoc moments before Naruto Uzumaki’s birth. To put an end to the Kyuubi’s rampage, the village’s leader, the Fourth Hokage, gave his life and sealed the gigantic beast inside the newborn baby Naruto.

As now Naruto possessed a monster that destroyed Konoha, the people of Konoha village completely disregard Naruto, and the children keep refusing to be his friend. In order to gain acknowledgment, he decides to become the Hokage of Konoha.

This anime is similar to Black Clover in that both the main characters (Asta in Black Clover and Naruto) start at the bottom of the barrel and work very hard daily in order to become “The Wizard King” in Black Clover and “Hokage” in Naruto. So, if you are looking for anime like Black Clover then there is no better anime than Naruto to go with.
