Black Clover was featured on the cover of Weekly Shonen Jump Issue 15, and My Hero Academia is confirmed to dominate the cover of the upcoming Issue 16. Both series are extremely beloved by manga and anime fans alike, in no small part thanks to the voice acting. While Black Clover fans do have strong opinions on Asta screaming nearly every line in the anime, the voice acting in the series has been praised by many.
On the other hand, the voice actors' roles in My Hero Academia are often their most famous, sometimes becoming their signature performances. With the Black Clover movie all set to be released in 2023, and My Hero Academia Season 6 on the horizon, it is a good time to see how many characters from the two franchises have the same voices.

For this article, we took into consideration the significance and screentime of the characters from both series, and placed them alongside the other works of the actors. The list is not ranked in order of popularity or importance.

9) Kiyono Yasuno
Charmy Pappitson is one of the most beloved characters in Black Clover, and one of the most powerful women in the series as well. She is voiced by Kiyono Yasuno, who voices the equally popular Nejire Hado in My Hero Academia, who has become more important in recent manga chapters.

5) Nobuhiko Okamoto
Speaking of Bakugo, he is voiced by one of the most popular voice actors in the current demographic, Nobuhiko Okamoto. Bakugo is one of Okamoto’s signature roles, and his portrayal of Liebe in Black Clover looks equally promising, considering the part the devil plays in the recent manga arcs.
