Black Clover Chapter 333: Recap!
Before we go into chapter 334 spoilers, let’s go over what happened in the most recent chapter of the series, titled ‘The Saviour of This World and its Flaw.’ Make sure to read the chapter for yourself; it’s available for free and officially on the official Website!
The chapter begins with a massive information-packed page that gives us some backstory and impressions on Lucius. The chapter’s first shocking revelation comes in the first line, when it establishes that Lucius and Julius, like Patry and William, are two souls born into one body. Before moving on to a dialogue between Lucius and Julius, we witness how Lucius (the time demon) came to establish a contract with the time devil Astaroth.
Lucius informs his fellow soul that he has seen the future and discovered a path to ultimate peace. Julius disagrees with his techniques, which Lucius claims he also predicted and planned for. Lucius then appears to cast an enchantment on his lighter counterpart.
That brings us back to Lucius vs Asta. Asta immediately recognises that this isn’t the Wizard King he knows and asks the stranger who he is. Lucius answers by halting time throughout the castle. Asta takes in his surroundings and asks the invader who he truly is after immediately powering up and eliminating the affects for himself with Anti-Magic.
When he answers truthfully, the devil’s host informs him that he is Lucius Zogratis, the world’s saviour. In addition, he explains that Julius, the Wizard King, is no longer alive. Asta is stunned but has no time to respond before Lucius begins to outline his ultimate plan to the hero. After hearing all of that and realising that this man is the enemy, Asta charges up and ready to defeat his latest foe.
As the chapter concludes, Asta activates his Anti-Magic, releasing the area from the time pause, and declares that he will surpass the Wizard King right here, right now!
Black Clover Chapter 334: Spoilers?
Let’s jump straight into Chapter 334 now that we’re all caught up. However, certain raws for the next chapter are already available, thus there are confirmed spoilers below; you have been warned.
The chapter appears to begin with a brief struggle between Asta and Lucius, and it does not look well for our hero. Following his bold announcement in the last chapter, Asta is unable to even hit the time magic user. Lucius has effectively rendered himself invincible by rewinding time on his own body, but Asta continues to attempt. After the barrage of blows, it looks that Asta was able to land a slight hit on Lucius as he reached out toward him.
This minor success, however, is quickly undone when Lucius steps back and powers up! Lucius vows to stop Asta and Liebe’s anti-magic once more, saying that it is a threat to his world’s peace. Julius’ years as Wizard King appear to have rubbed off on Lucius after all…
The villain’s new shape appears nearly angelic, which is strange considering that he is supposed to be a devil host. Lucius states that this is the genuine human form, having sprouted two pairs of wings, what appear to be deer antlers, and a huge circle of light or halo.
Lucius emerges behind Sister Lily in his “angel form,” as many fans describe to it, and begins to monologue once more. Lucius says that his power is called “Soul magic,” and it allows him to transform the souls of anyone he touches, as we anticipated last week. On the surface, this skill appears to be quite similar to Mahito’s from Jujutsu Kaisen. While hovering above Sister Lily, Lucius tells Asta that he will now demonstrate what a truly happy person looks like.
This is where the chapter’s twist enters the picture. Lucius appears to transform Sister Lily into a monster! As he previously stated, the new form he has adopted is the real form of humanity, and whatever changes he has done to Sister Lily’s soul have given her a similar, if not identical, form.
This Lily is no longer the Lily we’ve come to know and love; she now has horns, two pairs of wings, and a halo above her head. Sister Lily, clearly inspired by Lucius, turns to Asta and asks him to die for the cause of global peace.
Asta simply stands there in shock, not believing his ears, before absorbing a big hit from Lucius. As he falls through the sky, blood streaming from his chest, Lucius warns his opponent that he can’t beat him with Asta’s current fragile soul. The wild trip that is Chapter 334 comes to an end with the words, goodbye flaw of this world!
