A succinct summary of the manga BELT OF A BLUE CLOVER:
They were left behind in the same church when Asta and Yuno were younger. They shared a strong competitive spirit despite being connected throughout their whole lives. Their goal was obvious since they took a solemn commitment to one another that one of them would one day become the magic king. As it turned out, Yuno was a prodigy in the magical arts, but Asta was unable to use magic and chose to develop his physical strength as a substitute for his lack of magical talent.
After obtaining a mysterious grimoire with a four-leaf clover instead of the more typical three-leaf clover, Yuno is instantly thrust into a dangerous position, which unexpectedly reveals her true strength. The anti-magic grimoire known as “Black Clover” is successfully obtained by him. The two individuals, who are rivals and friends at the same time, embark on their expedition with the same goal in mind.
Japanese manga author and artist Yki Tabata is the creator of the Black Clover (Japanese:, Hepburn: Burakku Kurb) series. The young adult manga magazine Weekly Shnen Jump, published by Shueisha, has been serializing it since February 2015. In total, 33 tankbon volumes containing its episodes have been published as of November 2022. Little Asta, who was born without any magical skills, serves as the story’s main character. Since it seems like everyone in his community has some sort of supernatural talent, this is a mystery to him. Asta, along with the other magicians from the Black Bulls, is pursuing his desire of becoming the next Wizard King.
In the year 2017, Xebec Zwei created an original video animation based on the manga. It was released online. From October 2017 until March 2021, TV Tokyo in Japan broadcast the Pierrot-created anime television series based on this tale. Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King, an animated film, is slated to premiere in Japanese theaters and on Netflix in March 2023.
While Crunchyroll is the organization in charge of holding the license for the anime series, Viz Media is in charge of holding it for the English translation of the manga in North America.
Plot: Asta, a young orphan who was abandoned and raised in an orphanage alongside Yuno, another orphan, is the main character of the television series. Asta, who lacks access to magic, focuses on honing her physical strength even though everyone has the ability to harness mana in the form of magical power. The genius Yuno, on the other hand, was born with tremendous magical power and the capacity to control wind magic.
Due to their mutual desire to one day succeed the current Wizard King as king of Clover Kingdom, the two young men grew to be friendly rivals. In the kingdom, the Wizard King is ranked as the second most powerful person. Yuno obtains a storied grimoire with four leaves that belonged to the first Wizard King of the land. The four-leaf grimoire is a very rare grimoire that is only given to the most powerful of mages. Asta didn’t possess any magical powers, yet he managed to obtain a mysterious five-leaf grimoire. A bodyless member of the Devil race who uses uncommon anti-magic is also reportedly included in this grimoire, as well as a pair of strange elven swords. As a result, he and Yuno join different Magic Knight squads, which is the first step in achieving their objectives for both of them.
As Asta and Noelle Silva join the Black Bulls, Yuno enlists with the Golden Dawn. The Black Bulls’ captain is Yami Sukehiro. They engage in a variety of adventures while also squaring off against the Eye of the Midnight Sun, a radical group whose leadership is being controlled by a Devil in order to wreak revenge on the Elves for an injustice perpetrated against them by the Clover Kingdom when it first came into existence. Following that, the Magic Knights engage in combat with the Dark Triad of the Spade Kingdom, during which Asta and Yuno learn more about the effects that their individual Devils have had on their lives as well as the Dark Triad’s aim to fully materialize the Devils into their domain.
