Summary of Black Clover

Asta and Yuno were dropped off at the same church on the same day. Growing up together as children, they met the "Wizard King", a title bestowed on the kingdom's strongest wizard, and vowed to compete against each other to see who could become the next Wizard 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 is completely incapable of using magic and desperately tries to awaken his powers through physical training.

When they turn 15, Yuno receives a spectacular grimoire featuring a four-leaf clover, while Asta receives nothing. However, shortly after, Yuno is attacked by a person named Lebuty, whose main goal is to acquire Yuno's grimoire. Though hopeless and on the brink of defeat, Asta finds the strength to survive upon hearing Yuno's voice, and as he unleashes his inner emotions, he is given a grimoire of a five-leaf clover, a "black shamrock", granting him enough strength to survive the to overcome threat. Now both have a chance to become the Wizard King!
