Black Clover Time Skip Explained
Black Clover manga first introduced a six months time skip in chapter 229. The manga did not show what happened in the six months and directly skipped past them. However, the anime expanded on the story and provided a bridge that built up the action for the time skip. These original episodes are known as the Devil Banishers Arc. The Devil Banishers Arc leads to one of the most important arcs in the story. Episode 158 titled, ‘hope and despair’ starts the Spade Kingdom arc.
Though six months is a short time, there were noticeable changes in the characters and their strength. The characters have been training with the mages of Heart Kingdom to fight against the Spade Kingdom and eventually the dark triad. The most noticeable change is in the protagonist Asta. Despite the training primarily focusing on the magic knights, Asta too had trained himself. He trained himself harder and got stronger. Because of this he can wield the Demon slayer world. Asta even fights Dante and defeats him with the help of Yami.
Will There Be A Second Black Clover Time Skip?
As with many shonen series like One Piece, Naruto, Black Clover might have another time skip in its future. Time skips are a great plot device that helps the development of the story and the characters. They skip over simple matters and leave space for more significant events. They are also a great way to introduce character changes and developments. In Black Clover, we see a major change in Asta after the time skip. Black Clover fans expressed shock over the huge changes in the character.
With the manga still ongoing, there is a lot of room for the manga to adapt a second-time skip. Especially after the introduction of Lucifero and his unbelievable power. Now would be the perfect time to introduce a second-time skip. During which the magic knights can train to become strong enough to defeat the King of the devils. Considering the recent updates and the latest developments from the manga. It can be assumed that the manga might have skipped a couple of years to the future.

Black Clover fans quickly noticed some exciting developments in the display this time. The collection shows a before and after of the displayed events. First up is the Promise Panel; the promise panel shows the promise between a young Asta and Yuno. Their pact to become rivals and become the next wizard king. However, the word promise is burned and destroyed.
Along with the word promise, Yuno also gets burnt. Thus, this could hint that Yuno might claim the throne of Spade Kingdom. The second panel is the Pride Panel. At first, the collection shows King Julius and the eight magic knight captains. However, the later version misses two pictures of Yami and William. This can be due to the Dark Triad capturing the two captains. However, fans are expressing concern about whether this could mean the death of one of the characters. Next is the Complex panel, which shows Noelle in her fight against Vetto. Interestingly, the rest of the pictures featuring the black bulls also contain their fights with Vetto.
This hints at a huge fight between the black bulls and some new threat. The panel name Complex could be a nod to her ongoing struggle. The last panel contains portraits of the black bulls. And several of them are burning. This could foreshadow huge changes among the black bulls. Additionally, a picture of Nacht is also added to the panel.
Black Clover New Theory: A New Hidden Continent?
Another source of finding spoilers and hidden details are the opening of the Black Clover Anime. One interesting detail from the Black Clover Opening is the mysterious dark force invading the Spade kingdom. The internet has noted how the dark energy is attacking from above the spade kingdom. There is a space covered by clouds above the Spade Kingdom in the Black Clover Universe map. Many fans believe this to be a hidden land or continent that will be revealed in the coming chapters. There are two ways this land will be used in the story.
The first way is the most obvious one. Like in the previous time skip, the magic knights could use the land to train and get better. During their fight with Lucifero, the magic knights may face defeat or retreat to gain more power. The mysterious land above the spade kingdom offers a perfect location for the knights to move there and train themselves. On the other hand, as Lucifero is still manifesting, it could be that he is the one who moves there. Furthermore, the duration of a second-time skip allows him to complete his manifestation. And open the rest of the gates in the underworld. After which, he attacks with the rest of his demon army.
In Conclusion, Black Clover has set up a lot of surprises and plot twists for the fans. The latest chapters in the manga have introduced the third supreme devil.
