To everyone else in his magic-dominated world, the young and powerless Mash Vandead is a threat to the gene pool and must be purged. Living secretly in the forest, he spends every day training his body, building muscles strong enough to compete with magic itself! However, upon having his identity exposed and his peaceful life threatened, Mash begins his journey to becoming a "Divine Visionary," a role so powerful that society would have no choice but to accept his existence.

And so, in order to maintain his peaceful life, the magicless Mash enrolls in the prestigious Easton Magic Academy, competing against the children of some of the most powerful and elite in the realm. Lacking the very skill needed to survive at Easton, magic, Mash appears to already be at a disadvantage to his fellow classmates. In order to achieve his goals, Mash will have to fight his way through every trial using his fists alone, overcoming magic with muscles, all for the illustrious title of Divine Visionary!

"One Punch Man meets Harry Potter".

You've got an indifferent OP protagonist (similar to Saitama or Mob) and a premise like Black Clover where the protagonist has no magic at all, but trains hard and uses brute muscle strength to outdo powerful magic. It is obvious that the author takes a lot of inspiration from Harry Potter, but a lot of the art and humor seems heavily inspired by ONE, and just like One Punch Man, it blurs the lines of being a gag manga and being a serious fantasy shounen.

If you're a big fan of OPM or Mob Psycho, I think you'll absolutely love Mashle.

At the moment of this review Mashle stands at 18 chapters, Mashle for me started out slow and seemingly like it would be axed but Mashle really picked up at Chapter 3 and has since been getting better and better with some of the best action and fights in recent Jump. The story follows Mash Vandead, a young teen with no magical powers of his own and is sent off to magic school to become a Divine Visionary. The series heavily mogs on Harry Potter which is personally really great for me as I'm not a fan of Potter at all. Mash himself is hilarious read more

Do not drop this manga after reading the first chapter~~!!! Don’t be like my past self!!!

-The art style of this manga isn’t top tier like some others.
-The beginning of the manga is boring.
-Why should I keep on reading?
If you have those thoughts in mind, you are just like my past self.

-Indeed, the art isn’t top tier; however, the art will be a lot cleaner.
-Yes. Art is important. But… the strongest suit of this manga is its creativity in the STORYLINE. Even though it does contain a lot of elements from other stories/manga style, the plot of the manga is hella unique since the plot read more

As of writing this review, Mashle is still in it's very early infancy, so this is by no means a complete opinion, simply a work in progress.

I think so far this is an enjoyable manga, it's funny in a very One type of way, the main character being clearly inspired by the likes of Saitama and Mob, however, the depth of Mash as well as the other characters in the story feel a little flat to me, and definitely lack the nuance it takes to completely pull off a One Punch Man type manga.

Mashle wears its influences very clearly on its sleeve, from the aforementioned read more
