12. The Seven Deadly Sins

The Seven Deadly Sins

The core plot is simply the adventure anime-like black clover (and misadventures) of an unlikely team as they traverse the land, looking for other members of a mysterious group known as the “Seven Deadly Sins”.

While traveling, the ‘team’ comes across other past members, gets into fights with various characters, help people out, chat, joke, and just generally try to have fun and do what is just – while working towards completing their ultimate objective of reuniting all seven and reclaiming the land.

The series has a great grasp on balancing the humor, the drama, and the action. One never seems to overpower the other.

The soul of this show though is divided into two aspects: the fights, and the character development (which often ties into the aforementioned aspect).

Most of the main characters (and many of the side characters and antagonists) get their time to shine and be developed.

Character dialogue, actions, and interactions, as well as fantastic backstories for many of the characters really flesh things out and add a sense of purpose and reason to the story.

What’s similar?

Similar to Black Clover, The Seven Deadly Sins takes place in a world where magic is common. Both the anime has demons and other species. The main protagonists and their group serve as a kingdom’s sword and shield in both the anime.

11. Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor

His lazy and indifferent attitude toward life and magic quickly puts him at odds with his class. What’s more, nefarious forces hidden within the empire’s walls start to become active, and Sistine, Rumia, and Glenn find themselves caught up in their schemes.

Though completely different on the surface, they are inexplicably bound together by a thread of fate.

What’s similar?

Firstly, the wide variety of magic. Both Black Clover and Akashic Records of a Bastard Magical Instructor have all sorts of magic like fire, water, wind, etc.

Another part about this anime that makes it similar to Black Clover is the fact that there are villains who use magic to create chaos, and also that the protagonist can negate magic around him.

10. The Legend Of The Legendary Heroes

The Legend Of The Legendary Heroes

Alpha Stigma” are known to be eyes that can analyze all types of magic. However, they are more infamously known as cursed eyes that can only bring destruction and death to others.

However, after many of his classmates died in a war, he makes an oath to make the nation a more orderly and peaceful place, with fellow survivors and best friend, Sion Astal.

In response to their arrival, an organization called the Border Defense Agency has been established to combat the Neighbor menace through special weapons called “Triggers.”

Even though several years have passed after the gate first opened, Neighbors are still a threat and members of Border remain on guard to ensure the safety of the planet.

Despite this delicate situation, members-in-training, such as Osamu Mikumo, are not permitted to use their Triggers outside of headquarters.

But when the mysterious new student in his class is dragged into a forbidden area by bullies, they are attacked by Neighbors, and Osamu has no choice but to do what he believes is right.

Much to his surprise, however, the transfer student Yuuma Kuga makes short work of the aliens, revealing that he is a humanoid Neighbor in disguise.

What’s similar?

While there’s no concept of magic in World Trigger, the use of “triggers” to gain special and unique abilities is kind of similar to the magical abilities displayed in Black Clover.

Similar to the captains of the magic knights in Black Clover, there are extremely powerful S rank agents in World Trigger who lead units.

8. UQ Holder!: Mahou Sensei Negima! 2

UQ Holder!: Mahou Sensei Negima! 2

Touta Konoe is an ordinary boy raised in a small rural town. His mundane life suddenly changes when his mentor, Katherine McDowell, reveals herself to be a vampire; after saving Touta from a mortal wound, she causes him to become immortal as well.

Already yearning to explore the world, young Touta finally puts his dream to ascend to the top of Amanomihashira—a tower that leads to outer space—into realization.

Along the way, he finds a secret society filled with immortals just like him called “UQ Holders.” Gaining new comrades and mentorship along the way, Touta embarks on his own unique, magical adventure.

7. Soul Eater

Soul Eater

Death City is home to the famous Death Weapon Meister Academy, a technical academy headed by the Shinigami—Lord Death himself. Its mission: to raise “Death Scythes” for the Shinigami to wield against the many evils of their fantastical world.

These Death Scythes, however, are not made from physical weapons; rather, they are born from human hybrids who have the ability to transform their bodies into Demon Weapons, and only after they have consumed the souls of 99 evil beings and one witch’s soul.

Soul Eater Evans, a Demon Scythe who only seems to care about what’s cool, aims to become a Death Scythe with the help of his straight-laced wielder, or meister, Maka Albarn.

The contrasting duo work and study alongside the hot-headed Black☆Star and his caring weapon Tsubaki, as well as the Shinigami’s own son, Death the Kid, an obsessive-compulsive dual wielder of twin pistols Patty and Liz.

Soul Eater follows these students of Shibusen as they take on missions to collect souls and protect the city from the world’s threats while working together under the snickering sun to become sounder in mind, body, and soul.

(Okay, I’m saying this anime is like Black Clover purely based on the “feelings” that I got while watching both series. So, I can’t logically explain what part of Soul Eater is similar to Black Clover, but you’ll just have to trust me on this one.)

6. Hunter X Hunter

Hunter X Hunter

Hunters are specialized in a wide variety of fields, ranging from treasure hunting to cooking.

They have access to otherwise unavailable funds and information that allow them to pursue their dreams and interests.

Along the way, he picks up three companions who also aim to take the dangerous test: the revenge-seeking Kurapika, aspiring doctor Leorio Paladiknight, and a mischievous child the same age as Gon, Killua Zoldyck.

If you’re in for some mind-blowing adventure anime, then HxH is just the thing for you!

The very fact that this is a Shounen anime, makes it similar to Black Clover. Both the protagonist pursue their dream, fight with criminals and protect what is precious to them.

5. Little Witch Academia

Little Witch Academia

Despite being unable to cast magic, and being outclassed by almost everyone else in the academy, Akko relentlessly works hard to become the greatest witch whose magic can bring immense joy to the onlookers.

Besides magic, the other common aspect of this anime and Black clover is that both the MCs have a similar personalities.

Accompanying him are Doc and Mélie, fellow Sorcerers who share his ideal.
