What is Black Clover all about?

Black Clover focuses on a young boy, Asta, and his journey to becoming the Wizard King. In a world where everyone is born with mana, which is the ability to use magic, Asta is born different and does not possess the ability to use magic on his own. Thus, he instead focuses on physical powers and strength.

He lives in an orphanage with quite a few other children. One of the other children, Yuno, is a prodigy when it comes to mana. Both consider each other their rival for the position of Wizard King. Asta ends up possessing the five-leaf grimoire which is the creation of Devils as a guide to using anti-magic. Meanwhile, Yuno receives the four-leaf grimoire that was used by the first Wizard King.

Yuno joins the Golden Dawn squad while Asta joins the Black Bulls, which is led by Yami Sukehiro. Even though they both join different squads, their paths keep converging as a sinister plot of the Devils starts coming to fruition.
