After Asta's first mission, he was sent to explore and conquer a dungeon alongside Noelle Silva and Luck Voltia. Yuno, Klaus Lunette, and Mimosa Vermilion of the Golden Dawn were also sent for the same mission. Initially, it looked like a race between the two squads.

The attack on the Royal Capital saw Crimson Lions captain Fuegoleon Vermilion incapacitated, as the Black Bulls were sent on a mission by the Magic Emperor to obtain a magic stone from the Seabed Temple. Here, we saw the first big battle as the Black Bulls took out one of the third eye from the Eye of the Midnight Sun, Vetto.

Arc 6: Witches' Forest Arc (27 chapters, 75-101, 15 episodes, 51-65)

The battle against Vetto left Asta's arms severely injured, deeming him unable to use his swords the same way. Thus, the Black Bulls split up to try and find a cure for Asta, for which Vanessa decided to return to her home, The Witches' Forest. Here, a conflict arose as the Diamond Kingdom and the Eye of the Midnight Sun simultaneously attacked the forest.

Arc 7: Royal Knights Arc (48 chapters, 102-149, 31 episodes, 66-99)

After the conflict was resolved and Asta's hand recovered, the Black Bulls attended the Star Awards Festival, where Asta and Yuno's efforts were acknowledged. Soon after, the two, alongside Noelle, Yami, and Charlotte, attended a training session with interim Crimson Lions captain Mereoleona Vermillion.

Later, Asta and some of his friends participated in the Royal Knights Selection Exam. The Royal Knights squad was a group set to attack the Eye of the Midnight Sun's base. During the arc, we meet a new Black Bulls member, Zora Ideale.

Arc 8: Elf Reincarnation Arc (79 chapters, 150-228, 62 episodes, 96-157)

The Royal Knights' attack on the Eye of the Midnight Sun's base did not go as the previously annihilated Elf tribe reincarnated into several Magic Knights' bodies, thus having the Royal Knights take on their allies. Later, the conflict grew into something much more sinister, as a devil turned out to be the one responsible for all that had happened.

Arc 9: Heart Kingdom Joint Struggle Arc (32 chapters, 229-260, 10 episodes, 158-167)

After six months of training with the Heart Kingdom, the Magic Knights work alongside the mages from the Heart Kingdom, as both of them are attacked simultaneously by the Spade Kingdom's Dark Triad.

Studio Pierrot also chose to animate three episodes from Arc 10 to build up the story and leave the fans with something to look out for.

What to expect from Black Clover in the future?

It still hasn't been announced when the Black Clover anime will resume, however, if it were to continue, it will surely animate its final two arcs, one of which already has three episodes of it aired in the anime.

Arc 10: Spade Kingdom Raid Arc (71 chapters, 261-331, 3 episodes, 168-170)

Black Clover Arcs Guide: All 11 arcs in order (10)

After Yami Sukehiro, William Vangeance, and Heart Kingdom Princess Lolopechka get captured by the Dark Triad, the Magic Knights, alongside the Heart Kingdom mages, organize their forces to raid the Spade Kingdom and retrieve them. They needed to make their attack as soon as possible to try and stop the Dark Triad from opening the gates of the underworld and unleashing the devils upon the continent.

Arc 11 (ongoing)

The ending of the Spade Kingdom Raid Arc revealed Lucius Zogratis to be the fourth Zogratis sibling, who had been hiding under the disguise of Magic Emperor Julius Novachrono all this time. Now that he has acquired Lucifero's heart, he can use Gravity Magic. Thus, he begins eliminating anyone who could be a hindrance to his plan to fix all humanity.

The arc will also introduce us to Yami's homeland and some new characters. We will have to wait until more manga chapters are released to find out more.
