Hey all, Dani here.
Happy Christmas Eve, everyone!
It’s time for another Manga Monday review post. I hope some of you out there are liking this series of posts. I just feel like I don’t see a lot of bloggers or vloggers out there who really talk about reading these. And I find them to be great and quick reads that have entertaining characters and plots.
In a world of magic, Asta, a boy with anti-magic powers, will do whatever it takes to become the Wizard King!
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!
Asta and his teammates head deep into a magical dungeon in search of treasure. However, waiting below are mages from a rival kingdom! Can Asta summon the power to defeat an enemy even Yuno couldn’t take down?!
Rating: 5 stars
I read this back in October, as part of Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon. What amazes me is that after I read this one I didn’t just jump straight into the next ones. But I guess I was trying to read other books for the readathon. In the past week I finally picked up the next couple of volumes, and I can safely say that I am obsessed with this series now.
Asta is really growing on me. I can’t help but admire his dream, and how far he is willing to train and work in order to make it a reality. Asta doesn’t give up, and I find that to be amazing.
It’s also really cool that we’re starting to learn more about not just the country Asta, Yuno, and the others live in, but the surrounding countries as well. Seeing other guilds and groups, and seeing what other kinds of magic users there are just helps to make the world feel more expansive and real.
And it is also really intriguing to see how Yuno is treated in his group, as well as to see how he has grown already, especially in comparison to how Asta is treated by his group and how he has grown as well.
Seriously, I would have to just recommend that you pick up the first volume of the manga, or watch the first couple episodes of the anime. See if this magical adventure tale is something you would enjoy as well.
