Black Clover Season 1 Box Set Review

The Series:
Asta and Yuno are two orphans who want the same thing: to become the Wizard King. Locked in a friendly rivalry, they work hard towards their goal. While Yuno excels at magic, Asta has a problem uncommon in this world: he has no powers! But, on the day they receive their grimoires, they surprise everyone. To reach their goal, they’ll each find their own path to greatness—with or without magic.

My Thoughts:

As a set, this season 1 collection, is lack luster. While I love the show, and the story it presents; the box set it’s self is lacking.

The first major problem is the staggered release. The box set only comes with the third of five parts (not even 1 & 2) With the other parts releasing in the future. So far, only the first 3 parts are available right now, with parts 4 and 5 releasing later this year. This makes it really hard to justify spending over $200 when all said and done, with each of the five parts costing $50 each.

The Contents are great however, the packaging is solid, and the inclusion of not only Blu-ray, and DVD, but Digital HD as well make for a great collection.

As a whole, the box set receives a B-, The cost and staggered release drag it down, but the show is really starting strong with it’s first season.
