Asta and Yuno were abandoned at the same church on the same day. Raised together as children, they came to know of the "Wizard King"—a title given to the strongest mage in the kingdom—and promised that they would compete against each other for the position of the next Wizard King. However, as they grew up, the stark difference between them became evident. While Yuno is able to wield magic with amazing power and control, Asta cannot use magic at all and desperately tries to awaken his powers by training physically. When they reach the age of 15, Yuno is bestowed a spectacular Grimoire with a four-leaf clover, while Asta receives nothing. However, soon after, Yuno is attacked by a person named Lebuty, whose main purpose is to obtain Yuno's Grimoire. Asta tries to fight Lebuty, but he is outmatched. Though without hope and on the brink of defeat, he finds the strength to continue when he hears Yuno's voice. Unleashing his inner emotions in a rage, Asta receives a five-leaf clover Grimoire, a "Black Clover" giving him enough power to defeat Lebuty. A few days later, the two friends head out into the world, both seeking the same goal—to become the Wizard King!

Encoder's Notes

Whew, been a while since this finished airing.
It greatly simplified the whole directory structure.

The BDs are still coming tho and the most recent update here is that Season 3 encodes are now from the US BD. We’ll probably do the last season in one go as well after all episodes are out.

The BD encodes use PGS subs, which are usually considered bad, but they are actually better for this show. Someday™ dedsec might work on styled subs. I don’t that’s happening anymore.

Am I only one who likes this show?? Yeah his voice is annoying, but everything else is good.


Not sure how to feel when I see a mashup of every generic shounen trope imaginable. And my ears hurt from all that loud shouting.


You might as well just rewatch Naruto


This is why I stopped watching anime


*autistic screeching*


Same ole “Underdog-is-actually-an-overdog” story done a million times before. Peeps at the AWA premiere seemed hyped for it though.


If you can sustain the earrape from the screams of Asta, it’s a very fun anime to watch. I would still recommend it
