WHAT IS THE PLOT OF MASHLE?
Mashle: Magic and Muscles is a story set in a magical world where each individual’s societal position is determined by their power and skill with magic. A mark on the face usually indicates a person’s possession of magic. However, Mash Burnedead is a young man without even an ounce of magic in his blood. Despite this, Mash enrolls in magic school to become the Divine Visionary (Shinkakusha) in order to have a peaceful and happy life with his adoptive father, Regro. Mash, with his pecs, is determined to show the world that muscles can beat magic.
