    I didn't care about the writing.

    I was aware it was gonna get canceled early.

    But the way they got their abilities was really good.

    You beat me to it. :rotfl

    Maybe his writing and artwork (I didn't like the art that much) improved a bit compared to when Hungry Joker was serialized. I'm keeping my expectations fairly low because I was just not impressed at all with his last offering.

    So like Naruto the MC wants to be the very best like no one ever was and the world is full of magic and wizards. It's like Naruto combined with Fairy Tail hopefully it manages to stand out more with the next chapters >_>

    What's funny is that naruto was apparently supposed to be about wizards. Whom hitch makes sense considering their fighting style was more like battle mages than ninjas

    Well around the late 90's Harry Potter came out so :nonon

    I think BC is late to this genre of magic with Magi sort of and Fairy Tail being two shounen that took such an idea.

    Oh, I'm also hearing from fornever world that the hungry joker one shot was pretty good but it seemed like in the official release that they took away some of his ideas.

    That's one powerful sword Aster has got there. Of course, it wouldn't mean anything if Aster himself wasn't physically strong. Makes me wonder if there's an upper limit to what magic that sword can negate.

    This series is getting some hate due to how generic it is but it isn't so bad.

    I think people are forgetting that rivals existed before Naruto, as did cheerfully dumb protagonists. This feels more like another FT than another Naruto. FT itself felt like a lot of other series but this still feels like someone grafting stuff from FT than a series with the same influences as FT.

    I like the main character's ability, it reminds me of Mx0. If this were like Naruto I would expect the author would attempt to do tactical fights and this series would be like an action oriented Mx0. Sadly that isn't the way this series is likely to go.

    I think it's interesting to see that a series like this is now outdated.

    The mangaka is one of the most unoriginal hacks I've ever seen.
    This manga is literally just a more poorly written (which is shockingly possible) merge and ripoff of Naruto and Fairy Tail.

    It's a naruto ripo,f? I can tell by that alone you haven't read the series properly. :skullrouge

    How is it like nardo?

    The only comparisons to be made are that the protagonist looks some what similar to nardo.

    Him saying he's going to be the emperor king is more in line with luffy wanting to become the pirate king. Zatch aswell :geg

    The power structure is more in line with zatch bell (spell books).
    The magic theme and scenery are more in line with fairy tail....

    The only thing that gives off anything remotely nardo related is how the emperor king dealt with the giant monster with 3 eyes. I guess anything that has a high regarded leader beating a 3 eye beast is a nardo ripoff......

    That's just stupid, Kaguya☻isn't the first 3 eye demon in fiction, Neither the 9 tail fox.

    And all that has nothing to do with the emperor king killing an unknown beasts. They're completely different.

    Black clover is more of a carbon clone of zatch bell than anything.

    Zatch wanted to become king of the momotos or however the fuck you pronounce that. They used spell books to use attacks the same as zatch aswell.

    Anyone claiming this is like naruto haven't probably read zatch bell or just a hater.

    I'm not saying this series is great or anything, hell I wouldn't be surprised if it get axed in the coming weeks. Just that anyone claiming it's a nardo ripoff needs to clearly back off cuz it isn't.
