SEASON ONE PART ONE
On DVD & Blu-ray™ Combo Pack August 6
London, UK (20th June 2018) - Embrace a world of magical action and adventure from the pages of Japan's iconic Weekly Shonen Jump with the summoning of anime favourite BLACK CLOVER SEASON ONE PART ONE, available from August 6 as a DVD and Blu-ray™ combo pack, courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Based on the manga series by Yūki Tabata, BLACK CLOVER invites viewers to a world where magic is commonplace and almost anyone can conjure spells, except for young orphan Asta. Mocked for his inability to use magic and living in the shadow of his genius rival Yuno, Asta was disheartened when the annual grimoire ceremony appeared to leave him without a tome of his own. While defending Yuno from a thief however, Asta is gifted the legendary five-leaf clover grimoire, with its power of Anti-Magic giving him the strength he needs to charge towards his dream of becoming the most powerful mage in the land, the Wizard King!
Produced by teen action powerhouse Studio Pierrot (Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, Tokyo Ghoul), Black Clover is overseen by director Tatsuya Yoshihara (Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls), with series composition by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Girl's Last Tour).
Gakuto Kajiwara (You Don't Know Gunma Yet) stars as the feisty Asta, alongside Nobunaga Shimazaki (Free! Eternal Summer) and Yuki Kana (Recovery of an MMO Junkie). Dallas Reid (Hyouka) leads the cast of the included English-language dub, with Micah Solusod (Soul Eater) and Jill Harris (In Another World With My Smartphone).
Asta and Yuno are two orphans who want the same thing: to become the Wizard King. Locked in a friendly rivalry, they work hard towards their goal. While Yuno excels at magic, Asta has a problem uncommon in this world: he has no powers! But, on the day they receive their grimoires, they surprise everyone. To reach their goal, they'll each find their own path to greatness-with or without magic.
