Overall Story of the anime

"Black Clover" is a manga series created by Yuki Tabata. It was originally published by Japan’s Shueisha Weekly Shonen Jump. Its story revolves around a boy named Asta. Unlike the people around him and the world he’s living in, Asta was born without magical powers, a case that no one had ever heard of before. However, Asta is not giving up. Despite not having powers he discovers a new ability called Anti-Magic. With this newfound ability and the help of his friends, Asta sets himself a mission to become the Wizard King.


Aside from his journey in becoming the Wizard King, one of the major stories in the series is Asta’s relationship with his friend Yuno. Yuno was Asta’s childhood friend in the orphanage but unlike him, the latter is a magical genius.
