Mashle is a hilarious take on the Harry Potter universe with a magicless protagonist who wants to top his school, but with the strength of his muscles.
Yes, it also has a headmaster who bends the rules in the main character’s favor.
What makes the story more hilarious is that the hero, Mash, doesn’t even want to be in this mess but is forced to do so in order to live with his father in peace.
After over 100 manga chapters, the Mashle: Magic and Muscles franchise has announced an anime adaptation for 2023 with a teaser.
In a world where magic is used in everyday life, Mash Burnedead was born without a hint of it. People in the magic realm who are born magicless are banished from the land, so Mash’s adoptive father, who found him as an abandoned baby, kept him hidden from the world.
To survive in this world where magic is necessary to stay alive, Mash’s father Regro made him build up his muscles, resulting in his son’s superhuman strength. Soon the law caught up with the Burnedeads’ secret and made a deal with Mash in exchange for a peaceful life with his father.
Mash must enroll in the Easton Magic Academy and become a Divine Visionary. In other words, it is the highest title given to the school’s most exceptional students who become the magical realm’s greatest ruling authority.
