Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Tuesday, February 20, 2018
I found this fair-condition softcover (the not-for-retail "loot crate exclusive edition", with a slightly different cover than shown) at a local Savers thrift shop. I'd seen some of the anime adaptation on TV, and was glad to find the first volume of the series.

It's set in a world where competition to become the top mage is a huge deal - but young Asta, an orphan boy, seems to be the only person with no magical ability at all. So is his desire to be the Wizard King doomed to failure? Why, no!

He and his best friend Yuno, also an orphan, enter the trials with everyone else, and Yuno - who's an ace at magic already - easily wins a powerful four-leaf-clover grimoire. And then, to everyone's vast surprise Asta gets a grimoire too - with a five-leaf clover, the mark of the devil...

That's just the beginning, of course. From there the top students get selected by different teams of magic users, and there are more tests and contests and quests... Feels a bit like a mix of Naruto (especially with hyper, doesn't-know-the-meaning-of-NO Asta) and Hunter x Hunter, for the escalating contests. Lots of action, lots of humor, lots of characters!

[There's a TV Tropes page on the series, with some entertaining tidbits.]
