From Mangafox: "Aster and Yuno were abandoned together at the same church, and have been inseparable since. As children, they promised that they would compete against each other to see who would become the next sorcerous emperor. However, as they grew up, some differences between them became plain. Yuno was a genius with magic, with amazing power and control, while Aster could not use magic at all, and tried to make up for his lack by training physically. When they received their grimoires at age 15, Yuno got a spectacular book with a four-leaf-clover (most people receive a three-leaf-clover), while Aster received nothing at all. However, when Yuno was threatened, the truth about Aster's power was revealed-- he received a five-leaf-clover grimoire, a 'black clover' book of anti-magic. Now the two friends are heading out in the world, both seeking the same goal!"

 

So I started this series really only because I heard people chirping that it was like Naruto, and I wanted to see what that was about. I caught up all the way, and see that the comparison between Naruto and Back Clover was really kinda superficial, it was akin to saying to two people with brown hair, "Omg you are so similar because you have brown hair!".  :fu: I think it's a good start so far, and I guess I'll keep an eye on it for now. It seems pretty entertaining. Hopefully it will turn into something decent, but I'm not entirely sure my expectations are high.

One Piece didn't really. Just slow. But I do want to see how long it can last. You can argue that Naruto got lucky and weren't to supposed to last long because the momentum never reached Chuunin Exam level again. But yeah, we'll see.

You should catch up just to see. There's a shanks moment in chapter 4(?) that I know you'll appreciate, I did. That was a moment where I decided I'd pay a little attention to the series lol

Now that I have caught up, I'm actually finding myself quite liking it. I don't have high expectations, but then again, I'll just wait and see what this manga will evolve into.

I like Noella (or whatever her name is).

The moment where the leader of the black sheeps crook or whatever that guilds name is put his hand on Ashters head and encouraged his dream, I think the line was "join my guild, and become the sorcery emperor", instantly reminded me of Shanks putting his hat on Luffy's head as a kid before he left.

Oh, I see. He's a nice guy ^^ Seems like the Black Bull's squad is an assemblage of members that are looked down upon by the rest of the magic society.

It's not bad. It's only 6 chapters in though, so it's really hard to tell at this point.

It might look like a ripoff of Naruto and Fairy Tail in the first two to three chapters or so (sorry AHK, but that was really my first impression), but now seven chapters into the series I do not think so anymore. The characters are so far quite likable, and the overall story is enjoyable.

Well, I've decided to keep an eye on this series ^_^

Most mangas like this get canceled at the end of the year or early next year. Hey, even Kohei's (creator of Boku No Hero Academia) first manga got canceled and it was far better than any manga that debuted in the same year.  

 

If it stays I'll be surprised.
