A protagonist with Mob’s personality and Saitama’s strength in a Harry Potter-like universe is what makes Mashle a hilarious story that you shouldn’t sleep on.
The manga recently hit the century with its chapters and entered the final arc, which indicated that it’s finally time to adapt it as an anime. Its final arc, or the Eclipse arc, introduces the series’ primary antagonist and packs in loads of action and drama.
But the question that seems to be on everyone’s mind is: Will the anime adapt the entire manga, or will it be divided into more than one season?
Mashle: Magic and Muscles anime’s official website has cleared our doubts by listing the show as a ‘complete’ adaptation. This means that the entire manga will be adapted over the course of one season only.
According to the official announcement on the website, the story and world of Mashle will be ‘fully animated in 2023.’ So the good news is that we won’t have to suffer a torturous wait for new seasons, and the bad news is that we won’t have new seasons to look forward to either.
The teaser posted by the franchise compiles a bunch of panels from the manga where Mash is trying to prove that muscles can do the same things that magic can. For instance, when told to light a candle without touching it, Mash produces fire by friction to ignite it.
Mashle’s story packs several hilarious moments like these with action like you’ve never seen before. I mean, what’s not amazing about a fight where one is a world-class magician, and the other is a musclehead who can deflect spells with his hand?!
There are a number of reasons that you should put Mashle on your 2023 watchlist, and the biggest one is that it won’t leave you at cliffhangers.
However, the show might get separated into two cours, but the franchise has yet to confirm that.
Mashle: Magic and Muscles is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Hajime Kōmoto. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine since January 2020, with its chapters collected in six tankōbon volumes as of April 2021.
Set in a magic world, Mash Burnedead is a young man who was born without magic. In order to live a peaceful life with his adoptive grandfather, he needs to become a Divine Visionary, a title given to exceptional students from the Easton Magic Academy.
Mash goes to the magic school, despite not having any magic, and must survive by only relying on his muscles.
