Mashle: Magic and Muscles is a manga by Hajime Komoto. The story follows young Mash Burnedead, a boy who was born with no trace of magical power in his body and lives in a world where magic is essential to survival. Despite this, Mash enrolls in a magic school to mingle with the others.

The manga has been published in Weekly Shonen Jump for three years and is became more and more famous thanks to his seemingly serious but actually very funny tone, which mixes seriousness and laughter in this world of contrasts and elitism, where those who have more magical powers can stand out from the rest, while those who know less about magic, belongs to the outcasts of society. Thanks to this success, Mashle is on the verge of becoming an anime from A-1 Pictures, who released a video in the last few hours.

The Mashle trailer begins by introducing the protagonist, young Mash Burnedead, who lives isolated in a small house in the woods. Here he trains with a giant barbell, which immediately reveals his main gift: an unwavering and powerful physique. We then move on to the presentation of Easton, the Academy of Magic, and the four characters that will form his party, and then some antagonists, the first of the series.

It's immediately clear, starting with the seconds the show Mash's first fight, which deflects magic with a simple swipe, the type of work created by Hajime Komoto. Not much is known about the duration of the series at this time, but some leaks indicate that Mashle will join viewers for 2 Cour.
