Black Clover Introduces Yami’s Sister
— Nick Valdez (@Valdezology) September 19, 2022
After being introduced to the Land of the Sun (previously translated as Hino Country) in the previous chapter, Chapter 338 of Black Clover takes this to a new level as Asta is able to investigate the locale just a tad. It’s connections to feudal Japan shine further the more he looks around, and Ryuya explains to him about how the magic works in the locale. His attendant then immediately throws Asta off his game because of her familiar ki, and it’s soon revealed as to why as she has a darkness component similar as Yami.
Introduced as Yami’s child sister Ichika, she’s a strong warrior who takes out a group of bandits with a single attack that’s not normal for many of the magic attacks we have seen in the series thus far. She’s also teased as a member of a group known as the “Ryuzen Seven,” and obviously she will play a greater part in helping Asta reach a new level. However, since both of them have gotten off to such a bad start, it will be a vastly different dynamic he had with Yami.
