Asta and Yuno were abandoned together at the same church and have been inseparable since. As children, they promised that they would compete against each other to see who would become the next Emperor Magus. However, as they grew up, some differences between them became plain. Yuno was a genius with magic, with amazing power and control, while Asta could not use magic at all, and tried to make up for his lack by training physically. When they received their Grimoires at age 15, Yuno got a spectacular book with a four-leaf clover (most people receive a three-leaf-clover), while Asta received nothing at all. However, when Yuno was threatened, the truth about Asta's power was revealed, he received a five-leaf clover Grimoire, a "black clover"! Now the two friends are heading out in the world, both seeking the same goal!

Do you know the word cliche? you should because this story is full of them, i will put some of them so you can see why a lot of people think this is the worst shounen (battle type) right now:

1-Talentless Protagonist

2-Cool rival who has lots of talent (for no reason this time)

3-Protagonist wants to be the best _____ of his world (for no reason this time)

4-People always make fun of him

5-Demon like powers out of nowhere

6-Hero who save the city from Demon years ago without help

7-Main characters are orphans

8-Never give up speech then wins using demon powers (at the very BEGINNING read more

Honestly Black Clover seem's alright in my opinion,( disregarding Asta's VA in the sub), this series seems promising. Though the pacing of the series is slow from episodes (2-3) however for a 51 episode anime I expected nothing less. The pacing picks up with episodes 4- ongoing so I still plan to continue this series. I see why this anime has an open spot as one of the new "Big 3". The manga's pacing is also extremely fast, for people saying the anime is taking it slow, they are correct! I feel if Studio Pierrot did this to give justice to the manga its self read more

This is my first review on mal and English isn’t my main language so please be nice. :)

When I first heard that one of my favourite manga was getting a anime, I was excited. However after the first three episodes I felt oddly dissatisfied. This series has a lot of problems and doesn’t compliment the manga in any shape or form. The pacing and the directing of this show are just completely ruined by the anime.
Let me also mention that this anime indeed looks a lot like Naruto, however in the manga the characters and the plot make it unique. So definitely read the manga read more

Black clover is the new tv adaptation of manga also named Black clover.
Its to early to write a review of show that has only few episode but it was hyped. After watching few episode, It is clear that this show follows other shounens trope and will not be innovative.

Story: Nothing special here. There is our protagonist who is a underdog in the magical society. He don't know how to use magic and his brother is better at everything. This story is similar with other shounen like Naruto.

Art: Despite the dreadful story, the show has better art style and animation. which is why it is read more
