Asta announces he is ready to surpass the Wizard King right here, right now.

"Black Clover" Chapter 334 is expected to showcase Asta's duel with Lucius Zogratis.

However, the chapter is delayed, and "Black Clover" Chapter 334 is now slated to release on Aug. 21.

In the previous chapter, titled "The World's Savior and Its Flaw," Lucius was born as the greatest devil-host potential in the history of the Zogratis family. This exceptional being possessed two souls in one body.

Later, Lucius set out to find answers concerning his existence. He met with the Supreme Devil, Astaroth of Time Magic. Lucius finally peeped into the future for true peace in the world.

However, the other soul, Julius, in his body confronted the idea. Lucius also saw Julius' betrayal and was disappointed in him. Eventually, Lucius touched Julius' forehead and announced that they would ensure peace in this world.

The scene changed to Asta and the rest, who were surprised by the Wizard King's changed appearance.

Asta questioned Lucius and said that he was confused about his identity. Lucius used the Chrono Stasis to stop time for everyone.

When he attempted to touch Asta's forehead, he changed into his black form and freed himself from the spell.

Lucius noted that Anti Magic was the power that defies natural law. Asta remarked that time stopped for everybody and he was shocked that it could cover the entire tower.

Asta realized that it was the Wizard King's magic. Lucius confirmed he absorbed Lucifero. Asta was surprised as he called him the Wizard King, but he was not the one.

Lucius corrected him and revealed that Julius was dead. He added that he completed his mission in the service of their ideal. Now, he was ready to execute his plan for the sake of maintaining true peace.

"Young Asta was born with no magic ability in a world where magic is everything. In order to prove his strength and keep a promise with his friend, Asta dreams of becoming the greatest mage in the land, the Wizard King!" read the official synopsis of the series, as per Manga Plus.

"Black Clover" chapters release weekly on Manga Plus and Viz.

The manga is based on the original story by Yuki Tabata.
