Asta was born without the power to use Mana, while Yuno was in fact gifted with a multitude of arcane abilities at birth. The anime follows the two on their journey to join brigades called Magic Knight Squads and to make much more of their lives, especially considering that they’re aspiring to become the next Wizard King.
