In a world full of magic, Asta—an orphan who is overly loud and energetic—possesses none whatsoever. Despite this, he dreams of becoming the Wizard King, a title bestowed upon the strongest mage in the Clover Kingdom. Possessing the same aspiration, Asta's childhood friend and rival Yuno has been blessed with the ability to control powerful wind magic. Even with this overwhelming gap between them, hoping to somehow awaken his magical abilities and catch up to Yuno, Asta trains his body relentlessly every day.

In the Clover Kingdom, once a person turns 15 years old, it is time for them to receive their Grimoire, an item allowing its wielder to use their magic to its full capacity. At the ceremony, Yuno obtains a Grimoire with a legendary four-leaf clover, indicating the exceptional strength of its wielder, while Asta pointlessly waits for his. Feeling dejected, yet unwilling to give up, Asta sees Yuno caught by a mage who is trying to steal Yuno's special Grimoire. Despite being completely overpowered by Yuno's captor, Asta's will to keep fighting rewards him with his very own Grimoire—one with an unheard-of black five-leaf clover.

You can instantly tell in the first couple of chapters that black clover is your typical Shonen manga as it does carry a lot of Shonen tropes. Rivalry, the genius talented deuteragonist, a high-ranking title that the main character strives for etc. However, as you read along, the manga takes these basic tropes and is able to incorporate them well enough so it can be an overall enjoyable manga. And I shall explain my takes on how it does.

Story 7/10:
Since our main character doesn't have any magic in a world where magic is everything, it does create a sense of us the readers wanting the ...

Hundred chapters in and I really should rank this lower. This is the second time I’ve reached a similar amount of chapters read, and the desire to push through 250 more chapters is ever fading. This series saddens me in some respects because, as I was reminded growing up, it has such wasted potential. And while I am wholly attuned to the formulaic approach it employed to maintain its standing in a weekly output magazine, I just wish it would have taken a chance, even small, to make the journey with it worthwhile.

To start with I should justify the reasons I even reached a hundred ...

Black Clover is as generic shonen as it can get, on the same level as Fairy Tail in my opinion. If you're a teenager who haven't read Naruto or Bleach yet, you might find something interesting with Black Clover. The main character is as bland of a perfect, innocent main character as shonen can give you. The battle system is non-existent here. All the schools of spells that exist practically have nothing interesting in them. You'd think that there might be intriguing interactions between the spells, like water beats fire or fire beats ice or something. Na. In the end, it's always who has the ...
