Episode 70 of one of the most popular anime Black Clover released on 12th Feb 2019. It is titled “Two new stars”.
The episode covered Chapter 105, 106 and 107 of the Black Clover manga.
The Episode starts with the Wizard King introducing two new Magic Knight Captains Mereoleona Vermillion and Kaiser Granvorka along with the rest of the Captains. Though unfortunately Yami and Charlotte couldn’t make it there.
The Wizard King then announced the rankings of the Magic Knight Squads starting from the first rank.
As expected The Golden Dawn ranked 1st with the most number of stars.
But to everyone’s surprise, Black Bulls came in second place with 101 stars.
Before Asta joined Black Bulls, they had -31 stars and now they earned 101 stars making it a total of 132 stars which clearly surpasses the 125 stars of The Golden Dawn. So in a way, Black Bulls ranked 1st.
The complete ranking is like this.
|Rank||Magic Knights Squad||Stars|
|4||Blue Rose Knights||83|
|5||Crimson Lion Kings||76|
|6||Green Praying Mantises||69|
Soon after the King of Clover Kingdom, Augustus Kira Clover XIII makes an appearance. He spouts some nonsense at first but then makes an announcement of the formation of the new Royal Knights. The new Royal Knights will be the best Magic Knights handpicked after a tournament. Their purpose is to defeat the ‘Eye of the Midnight Sun’!!
At the end of the episode, Asta and Yuno stumbles upon the new Captain of the Crimson Lion Kings, Mereoleona Vermillion. She is the elder sister of Fuegoleon and Leopold and she is stronger than Fugeoleon.
Fun fact: She is the second strongest in Clover Kingdom after the Wizard King.
Won’t spoil more, Read the Manga if you are interested. I assure you that you won’t regret reading the manga.

‘One Piece’ reveals Orochi’s Dragon Form!!
One Piece’s Chapter 932 is titled ‘The Shogun and the Courtesan.’
The Chapter starts with revealing Komurasaki as the fox-mask woman. Back in Chapter 927, I have pointed out the similarity between the silhoutte of Komurasaki and the fox mask woman. It was her who was opening and closing the acts of Wano after all.
The interesting thing mentioned here is that she always wears the fox-mask while playing ‘this’ song. The song and her wearing the mask has deeper meaning which we will hopefully see in future chapters.
O-Robi who was surrounded by Oniwabanshu (Orochi’s private guards) was using a body double, an ability if her Devil Fruit where she can make a clone of herself. Fortunately she managed to escape the ninjas for the time being.
It is also mentioned that the Ushimitsu boy or the Witching hour boy had appeared in the Capital that day. It doesn’t make sense for him to come to the Capital during the daytime so does it mean that he revealed his identity? Why did he come to the Capital?? There are many questions regarding the Ushimitsu boy but hopefully we will get to know more about him in the future chapters.
Apparently Nami, Shinobu and Brook are also in the Castle.
O-Robi re-joins the banquet in order to hide from the Oniwabanshu. She also mentions that she has a mission to complete which is probably finding more information about Onigashima and also to find a Poneglyph.
There are many new characters which can be seen in the banquet. They are proabably Officers or something like that.
Orochi remembers and believes the prophecy from 20 years ago. He is also afraid of the strength of the Nine Red Scabbards.
Orochi also believes that Momonosuke is alive somewhere and is planning to revive the Kozuki family.
He may look like a jerk but he is sharp. He is aware of everything that has been going in the Country.
The interesting thing which I noticed here is Komurasaki’s expression after hearing Momonosuke’s name. There must be some connection between her and Momo.
Orochi’s men were trying hard not to laugh by hearing Orochi. But Toko, the Courtesan’s Kamuro ends up laughing. Orochi gets pretty mad after seeing someone laugh at him. He unsheathes his Katana and attack Toko but Komurasaki ends up slapping Orochi.
She refuses to apologize and bend her knee. She also claims that she is the daughter of a Samurai and won’t live shamefully!!
Clearly she is no ordinary Oiran, she slapped a Shogun for just one little girl. No ordinary Oiran has the guts to do that. She stands by the right.
Daughter of a Samurai!? Connection to Momonosuke!!? She might be Oden’s daughter and Momo’s sister Hiyori.
Few chapters back when she was first introduced I thought that she might be Momonosuke’s sister Hiyori. But there were too many unknown things to say for sure but after this chapter it is pretty much clear that she is connected to Momonosuke somehow. I am betting on her being Momonosuke’s sister.
At the end of the Chapter, Orochi reveals his Dragon form. It is indeed based on Yamata no Orochi, a 8 headed and 8 tailed Dragom in japanese mythology.
O-Robi grabs Toko and runs away but the Oniwabanshu finds her.
In the last panel we can see Kyoshiro saying ‘This is gonna be a bloodbath’ while he unsheathes his Katana. By this does it mean that he is going to fight or stop Orochi?? The Castle is already in chaos and it might turn into bloody battle.
Let’s see what happens in the next Chapter, which will be arriving on 15th Feb.
One Piece (Japanese: ワンピース Hepburn: Wan Pīsu) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine since July 22, 1997, and has been collected into 91 tankōbon volumes. The story follows the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, a boy whose body gained the properties of rubber after unintentionally eating a Devil Fruit. With his crew of pirates, named the Straw Hat Pirates, Luffy explores the Grand Line in search of the world’s ultimate treasure known as “One Piece” in order to become the next Pirate King.
‘Black Clover’ reveals Fugeoleon and Mereoleona’s Strong Bond!!
In the pevious Chapter 191 we saw Asta and the others break into the Shadow Palace.
Chapter 192 of Black Clover is titled ‘Two Bright Red Fists!’.
At the same time Mereoleona is facing Vetto in a terrifying battle. Both of them seems to be fighting with all their might.
Mereoleona remembers the one time when she fought against Fugeoleon in a sparring match. At the same time, Fugeoleon also remembers about the match her sister.
Apparently Mereoleona didn’t join the Magic Knights after getting a Grimoire, instead she went to the Grand Mana Zone.
The Sparring match between the two of them came to known as the ‘Hot Blooded Tuesday!’
Vetto refers to Mereoleona as the ‘Strongest Human’ in the Country right now. I am not surprised at all, after all I am betting her to be the next Wizard Queen. Currently no one else in the Country is more worthy than her to be the next Wizard King/ Queen.
At the end of the Chapter, Fuegoleon and Mereoleona both land a hit on Kaiser and Vetto. Looks like Fuegoleon has gotten way stronger after getting the Salamandar.
The arc is moving towards it’s end. We will probably see Asta Vs Rill in the next Chapter which will be arriving on 15th Feb.
