It's one of the hottest anime out there, so we have to examine some good recommendations for anime like Black Clover. There's a lot to love about fantasy-action anime - for example, there's one series about two orphaned boys of different skills (and temperament) setting off on their own journey to become the Wizard King - it's a classic Shonen Jump affair. The rivalry between Asta Sutaria and Yuno Kurosurii is heated, but refreshingly friendly. And the fantasy world they live in is wonderful, along with its large and eccentric cast. 

If you recently got into Black Clover and don't know where to go from here, check out Fairy Tail. What makes this anime similar to Black Clover is the medieval setting, along with the similar use of magic power. Other great choices for anime similar to Black Clover are My Hero AcademiaThe Seven Deadly Sins, and Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic.

TSDS and Black Clover are pretty similar to each other. Both shows are about a rag-tag team operating in a medieval world of magic. However, the heroes of TSDS were once well-respected knights of their kingdom, until they were betrayed and cast out.

Now, after years of separation, the legendary knights have reformed in order to save their fallen kingdom.

My Hero Academia is becoming the next Naruto in terms of worldwide popularity. The X-Men-ish story of Izuku "Deku" Midoriya attending a school for superheroes just recently had a successful animated movie, with a Hollywood live-action adaptation in the works.

Deku's struggle to control his newfound superhero power and keep up with his peers is extremely similar to Asta's struggle as an anti-magic swordsman for the his guild, the Black Bull.

Blue Exorcist is another magical-driven anime like Black Clover, but the difference here is that it's all about the dark arts. Rin "Son of Satan" Okumura is a half-human/demon exorcists who's taking on his demonic father, with his step-brother Yukio by his side.

This is a great show that explores the demonic side of magic.
