PlotEdit

Asta and Yuno are orphans who were raised together from birth after being abandoned at a church orphanage on the outskirts of the Clover Kingdom. In a world where everyone has the natural ability to perform magic, Asta is the only person born without any, leading him to train physically to compensate. Conversely, Yuno was born as a prodigy with immense magical power and the talent to control it. When they are 15, Asta and Yuno are granted the ability to become wizards known as Magic Knights by receiving grimoires, with which all magical power is channeled. Yuno is granted a wind-based grimoire held by the kingdom's first Wizard King, while Asta does not receive one. However, when a thief incapacitates Yuno to try and sell his grimoire on the black market, Asta summons his own grimoire, which contains the rare and mysterious Anti-Magic, enabling him to cancel out all magical effects, to defeat him. The story then follows the two boys in their time within separate squads in the Magic Knights, as they build a friendly rivalry to try and become the Wizard King themselves.

CharactersEdit

Asta — an orphan who was left under the care of a church during his infancy. He has no magic power, and overcomes his weakness through training his physical strength. He is the wielder of the five-leaf clover grimoire and a member of the Black Bull squad. He wields an anti-magic sword that is capable of nullifying any form of magic called the Magic Cleaving Sword. He later acquires a second anti-magic sword, capable of absorbing magic, called the Magic Eating Sword.

Yuno — an orphan who was left under the care of a church during his infancy. He is the wielder of the four-leaf clover grimoire and a member of the Golden Dawn squad. He uses wind-based magic and becomes the chosen partner of Sylph, the wind spirit. His serious attitude was born after Asta was injured defending him as a child.
