In BLACK CLOVER, Asta is a young boy who dreams of becoming the greatest mage in the kingdom. Only one problem-he can't use any magic! Luckily for Asta, he receives the incredibly rare five-leaf clover grimoire that gives him the power of anti-magic. Can someone who can't use magic really become the Wizard King? one thing's for sure-Asta will never give up!
"BLACK CLOVER offers an exciting story packed with magic, adventure and a cast of memorable characters that manga readers are going to love," says Alexis Kirsch, Editor. "Born without any magical abilities, Asta is a hero readers will root for as he fights gainst the odds to fulfill his dreams."
Manga creator Yuki Tabata received his big break in the 2011 Shonen Jump Golden Future Cup with his winning entry, Hungry Joker. He began the magical fantasy series BLACK CLOVER in 2015.
