Ey up guys. Has it only been a week? It feels like a lifetime, the past month has taken forever I swear. Anyway, below you will find discussion & spoilers regarding Black Clover 282 Raw and recap of the most recent chapter of Black clover, Heavy spoilers. Enjoy!
Black Clover Chapter 281 Discussion:
It starts with Zenon explaining to Yuno how once long ago there were two royals, friends with vast mana, who grew to hate each other and became Demons. The Grinberryalls (Yuno’s family/the former Royal Family) had kept these two hidden deep beneath Spade for centuries and the Dark Triad had released them, setting one on the Clover Kingdom.
We next jump over to Mereoleona who is watching as the Demon God in front of her absorbs mana through its wings and becomes even stronger. We next see the one in front of the Clover Kingdom, and Julius making a move whilst asking someone in sillhouette for assistance.
The Demon God charges at the Capital as the citizens flee in fear. We then see Purple Orcas Captain Kaiser Granvorka facing it head on and releasing Vortex Magic: Area Helix, a giant sphere of air that hits it squarely in the chest, halting in its tracks. Kaiser and his squad mates try to hold it back whilst the other Magic Knights try to evacuate as many citizens as possible. Meanwhile Royal King Augustus squeals in terror (oh no what a shame if he died right…….) . Meanwhile Kirsch Vermillion and Nebra & Solid Silva try to stop the Demon’s blast and manage to divert it away from the Palace.
Solid curses himself for not managing to stop it altogether. The Demon then charges through Kaiser and co, charging onward and firing another blast. The one directly in it’s path is Damnatio who thinks to himself he can’t negate this completely and the only true counter is magic of equal power. In the same panel, the blast seems to be wrapped in a sphere that looks oddly familiar………
Everyone looks around to see a once again fully grown Julius in the air behind this sphere. All are relieved as Julius tries to enact another spell, one to age the Demon’s arm till it has rotted away. But as he does this……..he reverts to his teenage self. Citizens and Knights look on in confusion and horror as the Demon God continues to charge up it’s attack once more as the narration depicts In this world….magic is everything –
When in the final page Asta and Liebe appear in front of Julius and Damnatio charging right towards the blast/Demon God. The final panel simply says Devil Union.
OK. Where to begin. Well credit where it’s due to Kaiser, yes he lost but he was able to hold the Demon God back momentarily which is more than I expected. Seeing some of the other Magic Knights again was nice, like Sol, Puli and En Ringard (Mushroom guy from the Tournament Arc), even if it was just for a panel.
Also the fact Solid put in some effort is a surprise but a nice one. He’s still a prick who needs to get his ass handed to him over and over again by Noelle. At least a few more times. Another nice surprise was Julius’ return, I knew it’d happen eventually but I didn’t expect it so soon. But I liked how it was done, he could overpower so many but at least this way it doesn’t destroy the power scaling as it’s only temporary. I loved the return of the
Magic is everything line for Tabata to basically flip it off with that next page. Damnatio is also still a prick but at least he did something for once other than make the protagonist’s life harder.
Black Clover Chapter 282 Spoilers & Predictions:
Gee I wonder what will happen here………well what is Devil Union going to look like? We’ll have to wait and see but oh man I cannot wait. Asta could very easily just make that blast go poof with his Anti-Magic, but I could see him slicing up the Demon God a fair bit too. I doubt he could kill it but given how Nacht reacted to an unperfected Devil Union from Asta and Liebe……..who knows
What I hope and worry about though is how the Clover citizens react. I could see them seeing this and thinking Julius somehow made this and it’s his save in the end. Which I would hate but doesn’t seem outside the realms of possibility. But if not? Oh man this could be one of THE moments of the Demon Saga. If emulates the original story of Lumiere vs Demon God Licht too well to not come out like that, both in universe and artwork wise.
Hell if he just creates a Black Divider as big as the Demon God that alone would be amazing. But if this is the moment he saves the entire kingdom and truly starts to make changes in perception for everyone, this will be HUGE for the story and Asta’s chances of becoming Wizard King, especially in public popularity rankings.
Whilst this would normally be enough for most chapters, the speed we’ve been going during this arc/saga I could see something else happening. Maybe the other Bulls arrive, or we get a panel or two of Noelle and co at Elysia or something else entirely at this point I wouldn’t be surprised so much has been happening recently. Perhaps the other Devils arrive in Clover and have to be taken out by the other Knights, Asta can’t have all the spotlight. OK maybe he can.
