Gaja reveals that Lucks is training with other Spirit Guardians for today. Asta said that now it is his chance to spar with him again. Gaja agrees and tells Asta that he must first answer his question. Gaja reveals that since Asta has no magic, his existence is quite abnormal, even among those at the arcane stage. He also said that he is impressed by Asta’s improvement. Since Asta is increasing his strength, Gaja asks about his life and the devil that resides within his grimoire.
Asta revealed his past when he was taken to an orphanage church in Hage village with Yuno. Time passed and passed, and Asta was always after sister Lily. All the time, he keeps on asking Lily to marry her, but he keeps on getting punished for that. He explains how he couldn’t use magic and how others tease him because he has no magic. At that time, Yuno was a super-handsome genius.
He was always one step after Asta, who always try to keep up with him. That is the time when the two challenge each other, who will first become the Wizard King. Back then, Asta promised that he would get a grimoire that’s more amazing than anyone else’s. He also challenges himself that he will follow the footstep of the late Wizard King. One day the students gathered to collect their grimoires, but Asta didn’t get his.
He was told to try again next year, and other students laugh at him. Yuno ended up getting a four-leaf grimoire just like the first Wizard King. Asta trained hard day and night, wondering why he couldn’t get his grimoire. He thought that he would get his the same time as Yuno since they have been rivalries from childhood. Asta decided not to give up, and he trains, waiting for the day he will get his grimoire.
Later that night, a thief who stole the grimoire shows up. He ties Yuno with chains and takes the four-leaf grimoire. Asta joined the battle, but he wasn’t powerful enough to defeat the enemy. Asta was about to give up, and Yuno boosts his confidence. Yuno defends Asta that he is not a loser since one of them will become a Wizard King. That day is when Yuno reveals that Asta is his rivalry.
The thief underestimates Asta and keeps on saying that he is a loser. A brat who has no magic powers and Asta gets angry saying ”Not over yet. That’s is when Five-Leaf Clover grimoire, which was said to have a devil residing within it, appeared before Asta. Back then, Asta didn’t know anything about the devil’s powers or anti-magic. He draws out his sword and punishes the thief for his daring words in a single slash.
The power of the Devil
Back to the present, Asta tells Gaja that is what happened when he first got his grimoire. After that, he and Yuno went to the royal capital to take the Magic Knights Entrance Exam. Yuno ended up joining the Golden Dawn, and Asta joined the Black Bull squad. But he was about to be disqualified since he has no magic, but captain Yami took him.
Gaja said that he remembers that Yami is that captain who uses a sword just like Asta. Asta went, and spars with Gaja, who notices Asta is becoming more powerful even in his bonding devil form. Gaja decides that he is going to end the battle now, and Asta refuses. Asta got powered up, which surprised Gaja, and the true powers of the devil started showing up.
Asta is also shocked by his powers by he came back to mid-normal. Gaja said that he would attack him with everything he’s got to see Asta’s true powers. Asta told him to bring, and the devil inside is glad that things are getting interesting.
