First released as a one-shot way back in 2014, Yuuki Tabata’s Black Clover has grown to become one of the most popular shounen manga of the last decade. Now also a successful anime and with an upcoming Black Clover movie, the series continues to attract new fans who might wonder if the Black Clover manga is finished or ending soon.
Is Black Clover Manga Finished?
No, the Black Clover manga has not finished. However, it has been announced that the series is entering its final stages.
As of the time of writing, the Black Clover manga has completed around 331 chapters. In these chapters, Asta and Yuno’s story includes around 10 story arcs, from humble beginnings to the recently completed Spade Kingdom Raid arc.
Recently, a three-month hiatus for the Black Clover manga was announced, suggested by the editorial team behind the manga. This hiatus is designed to allow Yuuki Tabata time to prepare for what he called the ‘Final Arc’ or ‘Final Saga’.
Is Black Clover Manga Ending Soon?
While the Black Clover manga’s story is preparing for its conclusion, there’s still no timeline regarding when the series will be concluded.
In the hiatus announcement, it wasn’t explicitly explained whether Black Clover is entering its final arc, or simply the concluding stages which could include multiple arcs.
Black Clover manga arcs can vary massively in length, from the first arc which lasted a few months to the Elf Reincarnation Arc which took a year and a half.
If we assume that the final arc (if that’s what is upcoming) follows a similar length to recent arcs, then the series may continue for another year when it returns. As a result, the Black Clover manga might not fully conclude until Summer 2023.
