    Is ‘Black Clover’ A ‘Naruto’ Spinoff?

    If you are a ‘Naruto’ fan, there is a high chance that you will definitely like ‘Black Clover’. There are few eccentric characters in this anime who resemble the characters from the Hidden Leaf Village. Hands down, one of the best (‘Naruto’ spin-offs, but no one is going to admit this) anime series available on Netflix for you to watch.

    It is about Asta, a young orphan from a small village called Hage, in the middle of nowhere. More than anything in the world, Asta wants to become the next Wizard King, the head military leader of Clover Kingdom, to help protect the land and offer aid to his hometown.

    Is ‘Black Clover’ Similar To ‘Naruto’?

    Many fans of anime think that ‘Black Clover’ might be a spin-off of the popular and one of the biggest anime franchises ‘Naruto’. This speculation arises because of a series of similar resemblances of characters and plots of ‘Naruto’ in ‘Black Clover’.

    For instance, Naruto wanted to become a Hokage, similarly, Asta also wanted to become the Magic Emperor. The rivalry between Sasuke and Naruto was more skilled at young age, similar to that, Yuno and Asta’s rivalry also stemmed at a very young age. Not to mention, both Naruto and Asta are loud, and weird.

    Know More About The Anime Starring Asta


    The protagonist of the anime ‘Black Clover’ is Asta. I wouldn’t doubt if half the viewers walked away after giving first episode a try, feeling like their ears were about to bleed because of Asta. Gakuto Kajiwara gave Asta a loud, shrill voice that felt like he was constantly screaming in everyone’s ear. Kajiwara absolutely tones it down in the following episodes, neverthless, Asta is still loud minus the shrill voice.

    The protagonist’s goal is to become the Wizard King. (Quite similar to Naruto who wanted to become the Hokage.) Given that he wanted to protect the Clover Kingdom, however, is bothered by the social stratification occurring in the country. So, he seeks to become Wizard King to have the power to make changes necessary for people outside of the royal capital.
