Mashle: Muscle x magic manga synopsis and more
Mashle takes place in a universe where magic is everything, and one’s social standing is determined by his abilities—or lack thereof.
Mash Burnedead possesses no magical skills. Mash is deserted by his family and adopted by Regro Burnedead, a man who starts to teach him self-defense after he is born without the distinctive mark that signals a magic wielder.
He will need to excel at the Easton Magic Academy to become a Divine Visionary and offer himself and his adoptive father a better life. Mash will need to master “muscle magic”—complete command of his muscles that permits him to perform astounding feats.
Many anime viewers are familiar with the story of someone without special abilities in a magical world, with characters such as Izuku Midoriya from My Hero Academia and Rock Lee from Naruto being notable examples. Mashle, on the other hand, puts a novel spin on the cliche by parodying parts of previous shows rather than simply duplicating an old formula.
Mashle has been likened to One Punch Man because of their comparable narratives and comic tone. Easton Magic Academy, which satirizes Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, is also a reference to Harry Potter.
The manga Mashle: Magic and Muscles is now available through VIZ Media and Manga Plus.
