The both episode most likely will be outsourced to some other studio. This will  be helpful for staff to take a small break and relax after animating the end of Royal Knights Selection Exam Arc which will be summarized by episode 84.

Series director Yoshihara will be storyboarding Episode 84, so it definitely gonna have plenty of in-house animation. Episode 84 is titled “The Victors” and will release on May 21st. 

Written and illustrated by Yuki Tabata, Black Clover is Japanese Battle manga published in Weekly Shonen Jump since February 2015. Viz Media publishes the English translations digitally and also in print.

The manga inspired a event original episode screened in Jump Festa 2017. Later Studio Pierrot adapted a Black Clover anime which is currently ongoing.

Asta and Yuno were abandoned at the same church on the same day. Raised together as children, they came to know of the “Wizard King”—a title given to the strongest mage in the kingdom—and promised that they would compete against each other for the position of the next Wizard King. 

However, as they grew up, the stark difference between them became evident. While Yuno is able to wield magic with amazing power and control, Asta cannot use magic at all and desperately tries to awaken his powers by training physically.

When they reach the age of 15, Yuno is bestowed a spectacular Grimoire with a four-leaf clover, while Asta receives nothing. However, soon after, Yuno is attacked by a person named Lebuty, whose main purpose is to obtain Yuno’s Grimoire. 

Asta tries to fight Lebuty, but he is outmatched. Though without hope and on the brink of defeat, he finds the strength to continue when he hears Yuno’s voice. Unleashing his inner emotions in a rage, Asta receives a five-leaf clover Grimoire, a “Black Clover” giving him enough power to defeat Lebuty. A few days later, the two friends head out into the world, both seeking the same goal—to become the Wizard King!
