Black clover synopsis

Asta and Yuno were dumped in the same church on the same day. Raised together as children, they met the "Wizard King," a title bestowed on the kingdom's strongest wizard, and promised to compete with each other to see who might become the next wizarding king. However, as they got older, the big difference between them became apparent. While Yuno is able to use magic with amazing power and control, Asta cannot use magic at all and desperately tries to awaken his powers through physical training.

When they turn 15, Yuno receives a spectacular spell book with a four-leaf clover, while Asta receives nothing. However, shortly afterwards, Yuno is attacked by a person named Lebuty, whose main goal is to get hold of Yuno's spellbook. Although Asta is hopeless and on the verge of defeat, he finds the strength to survive when he hears Yuno's voice and unleashes his inner feelings overcoming the threat. Now both have a chance to become the Wizard King!
