    Grimoires are magical books n ‘Black Clover’. They have their own personality and choose their owner accordingly. While there are only four leaf types of grimoires in their world, Asta becomes the only one to receive a five-leaf clovered grimoire. When a child turns 15, they attend the Grimoire Acceptance Ceremony to choose their grimoire.

    Three leaves grimoires are the most common, four-leafs are powerful yet uncommon, but five-leaf-covered books are rarer even in their world. As the owner of their book gets stronger and matures, the book along with them gets nourished. Each page of the grimoire is filled with new spells as their owner learns more about them.

    Black Clover: Asta

    Asta is a magicless kid. While his rival Yuno is loved by mana, Asta is an orphanage kid who was rejected by nature. When the Grimoire selection ceremony was taking place, the Four Leaf Grimoire (the grimoire used by the Wizard King), chose Yuno as his master. Asta didn’t get any grimoire due to a lack of magical capability. Surprisingly fate had another role fixed only for him. 

    He got chosen by the Five Leaf Grimoire which at first appeared to be a devil’s grimoire. It is more like the Grimoire chose Asta instead of going the other way around. He who is mana-less uses the magic of the Five Leaf Grimoire, starting his own journey. Asta’s grimoire holds the power of Anti-Magic. Isn’t it perfect for a magicless kid? Though at first, Asta is looked down upon for his messy grimoire, he later becomes one of the strongest characters in the series.
