Although full of information last week’s chapter of Black Clover left us with more questions than answers. Like; what type of training will Asta receive? How will Nacht and the Bulls search for Asta? And lastly, where is Yami? With this week’s chapter right around the corner let’s take a peak and see if we can find some answers in the latest leaks and spoilers for the upcoming chapter!
As usual, we’ve got everything you need to know about this week’s chapter of Black Clover and more just below! From spoilers, listicles, news, and even countdowns we’ve got everything you need to know right here on Anime Senpai!
Chapter 337 Recap
Before we jump into spoilers for chapter 338, let’s recap what went down in the previous chapter of the series, titled ‘Destination.’ Be sure to read the chapter yourself; you can find it for free and officially below!
Following the shocking revelation of Asta’s survival, chapter 337 opens up with the Black Bulls goofing around and well…being Black Bulls. However that all quickly comes to a stop and we see the look of dread the knights wore all too well during the Spade Kingdom arc. Nacht just brought them news of Asta’s supposed death.
Although saddened at first the Bulls refuse to believe that Asta is truly dead, after all, there is nobody to confirm. Surprisingly the ever-practical Vice-Captain Nacht Faust agrees with his squad and altogether the team set out to find their idiot.
However, finding him may not be as easy as they think because as we soon learn, Asta is very very far from the Clover Kingdom. Somehow finding himself in the very heavily Feudal Japanese-inspired Land of the Sun! There he meets the owner of the silhouette from the previous chapter, the man who found him, had him healed, and brought him to recover. Ryuudou Ryuuya, the shogun of this country and shockingly a childhood friend of Yami’s.
Using his strange Ki reading abilities this man can tell practically everything Asta’s been through to have reached where he currently is. He can also tell that if the hero goes back to face his enemy, Lucius and his paladins, he will surely lose. Which is why, right here, right now Asta will get himself a power-up, in the Land of the Sun! And with that, the chapter comes to a close!
Chapter 338 Spoilers
Now that we are all caught up let’s dive right into chapter 338. Warning, however, some raws for the upcoming chapter are already out, so there are confirmed spoilers below; you have been warned.
It seems that the chapter starts off with Asta finally realizing, he’s a pretty long way from the Clover Kingdom. Racing out of the building he was in to fully take in the sights Asta looks back in awe but quickly remembers why he’s even here in the first place. Ryuudou is quick to tell him however that Lucius won’t be making any moves for a while. Seemingly hinting at Lucius’ seven-day countdown!
With that looming threat out of the way, Asta has some questions for his new pals. For starters, what exactly is a Shogun? As Ryuudou explains himself, it’s like the Clover kingdom’s Wizard King, aka the most powerful! This surprises Asta because to him the man in front of him doesn’t seem too powerful. In response to this, the woman with Asta and Ryuudou gets angry and tells the Clover mage off telling him he’s just an outsider.
Following this little outburst Ryuudou and Tsundere Girl, as she’s been nicknamed, take Asta on a brief sightseeing tour. On the tour, he learns something quite interesting, here in the Land of the Sun instead of using grimoires the people use scrolls and instead of producing magic they produce sorcery. But what might be even more interesting is that Ryuudou the Shogun has no magic, or in this case sorcery powers!
Before we get further into this, however, the Shogun rushes forward and moves two civilians out of the way before a large attack breaks out in the street. Before turning his attention to the cause of the explosion Asta takes a look at what seems to be the mother and son duo, strangely reminding him of Sister Lily and his days in Hage alongside Yuno.
But of course, with the attack happening Asta is quick to change his attention to what seems to be the attacking burglars. Only for Tsundere Girl, or as she’s been revealed, Ichika Yami defeats the burglars in an instant, shocking Asta! Astonished Asta notes that during her technique her ki raised to an extremely high level.
Excited to figure out how she did this Asta flocks around Ichika, only for her to grab his head just like Yami. Yelling at him for approaching him so casually she pushes him away. Laughing while explaining this, Ryuudou tells Asta that this is in fact Captain Yami’s younger sister, if he’s looking to get stronger this is someone he’ll want to be trained by! Finally, as the chapter comes to a close we see a closeup of Ichika as she tells Asta, she hates men like him!
