Black Clover Chapter 340: Recap
The chapter has one of the most epic battle scenes so far in the series and also bears an inkling of the prowess of the Ryuzen seven. The chapter also reveals how powerful Yami and Ichika really are.
Asta is seen training on the Yoryuku bamboo trees, trying to practice Zetten. Ryuya witnesses him and remarks that his basics might be good, but he still has a long way to go. Devil Union also makes an appearance and how Asta has joined it. He has also intensely cloaked himself in anti-magic as he prepares to fight Ichika.
The fight, however, is monopolized by Ichika. It ensues with a myriad of turbulences as different skills are used, and various perspectives and findings are put forth. Asta immediately gets knocked out after the fight finishes; however, everyone is impressed with how he held his ground against Ichika, as not many can accomplish such a feat.
Black Clover Chapter 341: Spoilers
It is rumored that Asta and Ichika might have a civil conversation for the very first time. New characters will be introduced so that Asta can be better trained. But what fans anticipate the most is getting the backstory as to why Ichika loathes Captain Yami. This secret will be revealed in the upcoming chapter.
Toward the start of the chapter, Ryuzen Seven’s three new characters will be unmasked. They comprise a female called Imari Komari; second comes a man wearing a mask called Hanagatsuji Jyouzou, and the third and final member Ookadai Zaemon. Once the training finishes, Asta is left bewildered and asks them why they haven’t used Yoryoku (magical abilities) and how they still were able to defeat him without much difficulty.
Then, they have another training session just to put Ryuya at ease. Then the manga progresses towards a conversation between Ichika and Asta, where Ichika’s age is revealed to be 24. They talk about Ryuya and how much weight he carries as well as Captain Yami and how he has helped Asta. At this, Ichika gets angry and asks Asta to stop; however, Asta persists, and Ichika ends up telling him how her own brother killed their own family.
