Hey all, Dani here.
Okay, so Damian’s dad’s surgery this morning went really well, so though it has been a super long day, at least it didn’t end with painful or sad emotional overload. With that being said, let’s focus on all things bookish.
Wow, it has been a long time since I’ve reviewed a volume from this series. I’ve read through Volume 10, but haven’t reviewed most of them, so here we are. You can expect reviews for this series every other Manga Monday until I’ve caught up with the volumes I’ve read.
So let’s get started.
Story and Art: Yuki Tabata
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!
The Clover Kingdom is under attack by a mysterious mage who can control zombies! The greatest Magic Knights have come together to protect the kingdom and Asta’s caught in the middle of the ferocious battle!
Rating: 5 stars
I find that the more I read this series, the more I love Asta’s development. So much happened in this one that really intrigued me. I flew through it and then very quickly picked up the next volume so I could keep reading and enjoying the adventures of these wizards who wish to someday be chosen as the next Wizard King.
That’s a vague overarching review for the volume. But I really did enjoy some of the dynamics that newer characters like Fuegoleon added to everything. And I absolutely love that how so many people treat Asta only helps him through one way or another. If someone respects him and gives him advice, then he accepts that and learns from it. But if a person continues to put him down and suggest that he won’t make it anywhere, then he uses that to fuel his drive to succeed.
I continue to be drawn further and further into Asta’s journey. I can’t help but cheer on these characters as they learn and grow. It is fascinating to behold, and this is a story/series I will continue to rave about, because I think more people need to check out the story of Asta and Yuno.
