  1. Mugyutto! Black Clover

This is a Black Clover spin-off that is comic and humorous and follows the chibi (or petite) versions of the characters through their journeys. The plotline is similar to the first season however, the only difference is that it is a parody and meant to make the audience laugh. It also highlights all of the characters’ biggest stereotypes and personality flaws in a satirical manner.

Available On: Crunchyroll, Funimation, Gogoanime

Review:

Mugyutto! Black Clover is an extremely funny ONA and I loved every bit of it. It is a complete opposite to the heavy mood of the original anime series and honestly, although being a parody it does justice to the Black Clover series.
