Earlier this year, in March, the Black Clover anime series marked its temporary end with its 170th episode. It was the last episode that aired before the series went on an indefinite hiatus. Since then, everyone has been looking for Black Clover Episode 171. The manga readers already know that whenever the series returns, it will break the internet because of some really amazing battles. Both Asta and Yuno will awaken their new powers.
This time, Asta, along with Nacht and others, will infiltrate the Spade Kingdom in order to rescue Captain Yami and William. Noelle and others who are training with Elves will also join them to stop the Dark Triad from completing the ritual. So, will they be able to save them, and when will the anime return? Here are all the latest details.
Black Clover Episode 171: Plot Details
By the end of the previous episode, Asta managed to become friends with Liebe after defeating him in a battle. It was quite shocking to see that he formed a two-way contract instead of controlling him. Now, the next episode will feature Nacht teaching him the Devil Unification form. There are still two days before they infiltrate the Spade Kingdom. However, this time they have to be stronger as the members of the Dark Triad already defeated them once easily.
Black Clover Episode 171 will feature Asta and Liebe training with the vice-captain of the Black Bulls. They will finally learn a new form before they go to the Spade Kingdom in order to save the captain of the Magic Knights. However, things will be even more difficult this time as the magic knights will have to face several new devils who will come out of the gate of the underworld.
Previous Episode Recap!
The 170th episode of Black Clover opened with the backstory of Liebe. He revealed how the high-rank devils used to humiliate him, and he spent every single day covered in his own blood. In the underworld, the powerful oppress the weak. As a result, Liebe decided to crash through the gates so that he could die. However, his body slipped right through them because he had no magic. There was a time when his body stopped moving. But he was saved by Licita, Asta’s mother. She took care of the devil just like his own son and also gave him the name Liebe.
One day Lucifero came out of Liebe’s body so that he could find a way to the human world as well. As a result, she sealed Liebe in a Grimoire in the hope that one day Asta would find it. The second half of the episode featured an intense battle between Liebe and Asta. The latter managed to defeat him even without his anti-magic. When it was time to form a contract with the devil, he made a two-way contract with Liebe.
Black Clover Episode 171: Release Date
It has been more than seven months, and fans are still waiting for the hiatus to end. Unfortunately, the makers haven’t revealed when the anime would return to the screens so far. Since the manga series finally got a lot of new chapters, and there is already a proper gap between the manga and the anime, a new episode should come out next year. The chances are great that the fans will see Black Clover Episode 171 in the first half of 2022.
