Mashle: Magic and Muscles, the series where shonen manga meets Harry Potter, has been trending the last few days as rumors about its anime adaptation surfaced.
My Hero Academia and Black Clover fans can relate to the muggle protagonist who lives in a world where everyone has magical powers. Although the manga is nearing its finale, I can bet that this bit of news will cheer up the whole fandom.
The anime adaptation of Mahle: Magic and Muscles manga has been greenlit. The promotional placard for the manga’s 12th volume carried the confirmation for the anime.
The studio or distributor has not been announced yet, but you can expect more details to be out by late this year or early 2023.
Some very trusted sources on Twitter have also leaked about the anime, making the matter even more believable.
Mashle will enter its final arc in volume 12 of the manga. After the introduction of the antagonist, Innocent Zero, fans have reasons to believe that the fight against him will be the last one.
The manga already has 100+ chapters which are enough for an anime adaptation. It can even be adapted into two cours or seasons.
Hajime Komoto has presented a lighthearted comedy series with Mashle, and it has a fair number of fans as well. The protagonist is a jacked-up teenager with upright moral values, which is nothing unique in a shonen series, but the quips from the characters and the gag scenes add their special touches to it.
Overall, I will look forward to the upcoming anime and hope the release date gets revealed soon.
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.
