Synopsis for Black Clover
Asta and Yuno were dumped at the same church on the same day. Raised together as children, they came to know the “Wizard King,” a title given to the strongest wizard in the kingdom, and vowed to compete against each other to see who could become the next Wizard King. However, as they grew older the vast difference between them became apparent. While Yuno is able to wield magic with amazing power and control, Asta is unable to use magic at all, desperately trying to awaken his powers by physically training.
When they turn 15, Yuno receives a spectacular Grimoire with a four-leaf clover, while Asta receives nothing. However, soon after, Yuno is attacked by a person named Lebuty, whose main goal is to get hold of Yuno’s Grimoire. Although hopeless and on the verge of defeat, Asta finds the strength to survive upon hearing Yuno’s voice, and unleashing his inner emotions he receives a Grimoire of a five-leaf clover, a “Black Clover” that grants him enough power to overcome the threat. Now they both have a chance to become the Wizard King!
