Black Clover

Last Modified Mar 13, 2024 15:28 GMT


With its debut on October 3, 2017, Black Clover soon gained popularity and left its mark in the anime community. Fans of the series even went as far as to consider it as one of the “New Big Three.”


Black Clover was initially released in Shueisha Shonen’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine from February 2015 till August 2023 and moved to Jump Giga in December 2023.


As soon as the manga hit the shelves, it soon gained popularity, thanks to Yūki Tabata’s mesmerizing illustrations and intricate storytelling. As the plot goes, Black Clover is set in a world where magic is everything, everyone is born with at least some amount of magic in their body.


But our protagonist, Asta, is the exception to this simple fact of life. He is an anomaly in his world and is looked down upon by everyone around him because of it.


When anyone would have given up in this situation, Asta persevered and never gave up. When everyone his age was practicing their spells to one day become the next Wizard King, the greatest wizard in the Clover Kingdom.


Plot of Black Clover



The story centers around Asta, a spirited orphan growing up in an orphanage alongside his close friend Yuno. In a world where everyone possesses the ability to harness mana for magical powers, Asta stands out by relying on sheer physical strength, devoid of any magical aptitude. On the flip side, Yuno is a natural prodigy blessed with extraordinary magical abilities, particularly in controlling wind magic.


Fueling their dreams of becoming the next Wizard King, a prestigious role in the Clover Kingdom, the two friends foster a friendly rivalry. Yuno secures a coveted four-leaf grimoire once wielded by the kingdom's inaugural Wizard King, a symbol of immense magical prowess. In a twist of fate, Asta, despite his lack of magic, acquires a mysterious five-leaf grimoire housing elf swords and a bodiless member of the enigmatic Devil race, wielding rare anti-magic. Both Asta and Yuno embark on their journeys by joining Magic Knight squads, a crucial step towards achieving their ambitions.


Asta finds himself among the unconventional Black Bulls, led by the no-nonsense Yami Sukehiro, alongside the aristocratic Noelle Silva. Meanwhile, Yuno aligns with the prestigious Golden Dawn. Together, they navigate a series of adventures, encountering challenges such as the extremist group, the Eye of the Midnight Sun. This group, manipulated by a Devil, seeks revenge for an ancient injustice against the Elves by the Clover Kingdom during its founding.


The Magic Knights later confront the formidable Dark Triad from the Spade Kingdom. Asta and Yuno unravel the influence of their respective Devils on their lives and the Dark Triad's sinister plan to unleash these Devils into their world. The stakes escalate as the Magic Knights face the eldest sibling of the Dark Triad, Lucius Zogratis, who harbors a desire to shape his perfect world.


Throughout their journey, the characters grapple with personal growth, complex relationships, and the consequences of their actions, adding depth to the captivating tale of magic, rivalry, and the pursuit of dreams.

Power System in Black Clover



At the core of Black Clover’s magic lies Mana, a supernatural power source. Everyone has at least some amount of mana in their body, except Asta that is. It’s the life force that fuels spells, allowing them to manipulate reality itself. Whether it’s conjuring flames, healing wounds, or erecting protective barriers, Mana is the key.


After turning 15, every magic user gets a grimoire that houses their unique spells and helps the user cast powerful spells. These grimoires are as diverse as the individuals themselves. They reflect the user’s affinity for specific types of magic, and each page contains incantations waiting to be unleashed.


To cast spells, magic knights invoke incantations from their grimoires. These spells vary widely, from offensive attacks to defensive manoeuvres. Whether it’s a fireball hurtling toward an adversary or a healing spell mending wounds, the incantations channel Mana into tangible effects.
