It seems that the visuals and the special report of the movie “BlaClo” have finally been released!
The story is about the “Wizard King”, which I was wondering whether to write in the original work or not, and they made it into a movie!
It’s a story that I was wondering if I would do in the original, but I think it will be a movie where you will be able to enjoy the large-scale and flashy battles between Asta and his powerful enemies!
Director Tanemura and Studio Pierrot are now working hard to make this movie…!!
Thank you sooo much!!! Look forward to next March!!! I’m looking forward to it too!!!
