In this magical world, one is easily identified as having magical abilities by a distinctive mark on their face. Those unable to practice magic are swiftly exterminated to maintain the magical integrity of society. However, deep within a forest lies an anomaly in Mash Burnedead, who can be found pumping iron with one arm and lifting a cream puff with the other. This aloof boy with superhuman strength—but no magical abilities—leads a quiet life with his father, far removed from society.

Mash's peace is soon disturbed when the authorities discover his lack of magical powers. They issue him an ultimatum: compete to become a "Divine Visionary," which would force everyone to accept him, or be persecuted forever. To protect his family, he enrolls in the prestigious Easton Magic Academy, which only the most elite and gifted students are allowed to attend. Now, Mash must overcome his shortcomings as a magicless being and surpass the other students—relying solely on his muscles.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Mashle adapts the first 38 chapters of the original manga.

It's been a while since we got a good parody anime with a good setting which was able to distinguish itself rather than try to cash in on a particular type, we have had wannabe konosuba clones and wannabe one punch man clones but they teen to forget that even if they are able to feed off of a starved for content audience they will inevitably be forgotten since there is already something similar which is in the store.

Mashle by all means is ...

Mixed Feelings
In the realm of endless AniManga content that we've been consuming over the last 20 odd years or so, certain series have stood out for one reason or another. Take mangaka Tatsuki Fujimoto's Chainsaw Man for example: it's grotesque; it's full-on intense action; and above it, we all simp the hell out of Makima for the woof effects. Now we switch gears to mangaka Shuhei Miyazaki's Boku to Roboko a.k.a Me and Roboco, which is a parody manga that makes fun of all of the IPs that it can get its hands on. And have you ever posed this question in your mind: "Hmm, if ...

Parody anime can be a hit or miss. Tropes of various settings in anime or live action settings are made fun of, but in order to stand out, it has to nail its comedy, and while comedy is always subjective, this one just didn’t nail it, all the time. It obviously is an attempt at parody of magic academies like Hogwarts, but unfortunately, it just fails to stand out at all in most ways. Perhaps you’ll think I’m “taking a parody anime too seriously”, but when most of the characters are the most stuck-up jerks with little meaningful depth, there just wasn’t much to enjoy. ...
