Distributor Funimation (formerly known as Manga Entertainment) have announced their home video schedule plans for the third quarter of 2021 in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Much like the previous slates, select releases may get pushed back at the last second.
The third season of Black Clover is finally heading to the UK later this year with five more parts as a Blu-ray & DVD combo pack (SRP £29.99 each). The first part (episodes 103–112) is scheduled for 12th July, followed by the second part (episodes 113–120) scheduled for 16th August, and the third part (episodes 121–129) scheduled for 20th September. In addition the third part will also be available as a limited edition Blu-ray set (SRP £49.99) that will house all five parts together in a rigid box.
