The question of which “Black Clover” character fans considered their favorite was answered in a recent fan poll conducted by the manga’s official publication, Weekly Shonen Jump. As revealed in the poll’s results, the majority of “Black Clover” fans have their hearts set on Noelle Silva, a member of the Clover Kingdom’s royalty and one of Asta’s closest companions and love interests. In total, she received 8,150 votes in the poll, beating out Asta (who took second place) by over 1,200 votes. On Reddit, fans reacted to these results with a sense of positive surprise.
“Noelle being at number 1 is surprising considering the poll ended before her fight with Vanica/Megicula even started,” wrote user u/Morgoth333.
“As a noelle fan I am extremely happy she made #1,” wrote u/ninten2003, with another user replying, “same. Best character easily [in my opinion].”
All in all, Noelle winning the fan poll makes sense given how important her character is to the series. This is especially true since, as u/JReiyz pointed out, other popular characters such as Yami and Charlotte had dropped in popularity from previous polls due to their recent inactivity, “and the prime candidates to steal those votes were Noelle and Nacht.” At the same time, Noelle’s participation in the story increased, meaning fans now have much more to appreciate when it comes to the series’ resident royalty.
