From playing tug-of-war with monsters triple your size to competing against your friends in an exam that defines your fate, the latest chapter of the Mashle: Magic and Muscles manga screams magic and muscles.
In the current arc, Mash needs to become a Divine Visionary, or Brad will out him to the police, eliminating any chance Mash has of being happy with his dad.
Not to our surprise though, Mash crushes everything in his way, quite literally. With new villains and one-on-one magic duels, the storyline seems to be getting better and better, but definitely not longer.
The mangaka, Hajime Komoto, revealed that his manga reached the story’s halfway point at the end of Mashle: Magic and Muscles’ 7th volume, which was released on August 4th.
Up till now, the Divine Visionary Selection Exam Arc has stretched the longest, concluding Volume 7.
The arc pits Mash and his classmates against each other, competing in the Divine Visionary Selection Exam, but only one can come out on top. Mash’s future rides on him becoming god’s chosen—a Divine Visionary—but can he pull it off without powers?
Now that Mash won against Margarette, will the next arc focus more on Innocent Zero? Will we see Mash and his father together? Or will the Easton Magic Academy celebrate Mash’s victories in the tournament?
With over 2 million copies in circulation for all the 7 volumes, its popularity is just rising. Volume 8 will be out on October 4th.
Since this Harry Potter mixed with One Punch Man parody manga has reached its halfway point to the end, I hope Mash gets to safely and peacefully live with his father.
Can he solely rely on his muscles to carry himself to the finish line? I can’t wait to find out.
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.
