Black Clover Episode 164 marks another step towards the end of the upcoming anime. The Black Clover anime will reportedly end at the end of next month. A big announcement is also scheduled for the same day that the anime will end. For more details, you can see our full post on the matter: Black Clover anime will end on March 30th. Now we wait for the big moment and hope the anime won’t leave us on a big cliffhanger.
The Dark Triad is in full action with Dante and his followers in motion. The anime strengthened us with a big battle between Vengeance and Zenon at the start of the Spade Kingdom Arc. Then the next Black Bulls as Dante make easy results from them in Yami’s not around. But in the same week, news emerged that the anime would end. At least the manga will continue, so that’ll keep us entertained in the meantime.
This means we all know that anime may not cover the entirety of the Dark Triad invasion. About five episodes remain until the end of the anime. Hopefully, they’ll be entertaining enough as each battle introduces new powers from the Dark Triad. Meanwhile, Asta meets his demon again and it looks like he is in pain. A lot of developments are happening in the anime so let’s wait to see how far they will take us.
Black Clover Episode 165 will be released next week and will continue with the Dark Triad invasion. This time the anime turned to fighting in the Kingdom of the Heart. We also saw how other mages had improved, but as long as they faced the Disciples of Darkness, the worst was likely to happen soon.
Black Clover Episode 164: Battle in the Kingdom of the Hearts
Black Clover Episode 164 provides clarity about Yami’s confrontation with Dante. They were evenly matched the last time they fought, and Yami finally got the upper hand and landed a fatal blow on Dante. But since Dante hasn’t used 100% of his strength yet, we hope he can turn things around. As we thought, Dante has a trick. Instead of using more of his demonic power, he used a different kind of magic at his disposal. It allowed him to recover instantly, and with that, Yami was back to square one.
Meanwhile, in Kindom Heart, Vanica’s invasion continues with his Dark Disciples. This was where the results of the Clover Kingdom’s mage training became clear. The spirit guards didn’t stand a chance against the Dark Disciples, but they had taught the Clover Kingdom mages well. Leo is also on the move trying to stop one of the Dark Disciples, and he has a trick too. We’ve seen Luck’s progress in the last episode, and this time we saw how Charmy develops her magic.
Since this was their biggest battle, they used elf level magic that they showed when the elves attacked. Combined with the mana zone and training they had in the past six months, it was enough to defeat the Dark Disciples and keep the Dark Triad at bay. But it wasn’t enough to stop them as Vanica managed to reach Lorochipeka in the end. Noelle and Mimosa are guarding her so at least she’ll be safe. But for that to happen, Noelle and co must beat Vanica first.
Black Clover 165 and Renewal
We haven’t seen Vanica’s full strength in the anime, but since she is one of the Dark Triad elites, she seems very strong. He will be fighting Noelle, Mimosa, and Lorochipeka, so the next episode of the anime will center around that. The rest of the battle has ended, so this leaves the Yami / Dante battle along with this one. These will be two big battles for the upcoming anime episodes, and they will only get more intense from here on.
