Description

* Based on a fantasy shounen manga series written and illustrated by Tabata Yuuki.

Asta and Yuno are orphans who were raised together from birth after being abandoned at a church orphanage on the outskirts of the Clover Kingdom at the same time. In a world where everyone has the natural ability to perform a kind of magic, or a Magical Power (魔力 Maryoku), Asta is the only person born without any, leading him to train physically as compensation. Conversely, Yuno was born as a prodigy with immense magical power and the talent to control it. When they are 15, Asta and Yuno are granted the ability to become wizards known as Magic Knights by receiving grimoires, with which all magical power is channeled. Yuno is granted a wind-based grimoire held by the kingdom`s first Wizard King, while Asta does not receive one. However, when a thief incapacitates Yuno to try and sell his grimoire on the black market, Asta summons his own grimoire, which contains the rare and mysterious Anti-Magic (enabling him to cancel out all magical effects), to defeat him. The story then follows the two boys in their time within separate squads in the Magic Knights, as they build a friendly rivalry to try and become the Wizard King themselves.

I honestly grinded through the first ten episodes because I liked the feeling that I was getting from some of the characters. Asta, the protag, was honestly grating on my nerves for a while (omg his yells, *shudder*). After I got past that, it's a wonderfully developed world, and the dynamics of the relationships between characters is honestly the best part of this anime.

In truth, it kinda feels like a little brother to Fairy Tail. The whole thing just has the same vibe, but is less in your face about the fact that the Magic Knights Squad that Asta joins is more like a family. I found myself drawn in by the bonds Asta forged with everyone, and again felt envious that those friends had total faith and stood behind him like that. But all in all, highly recommended anime.
