Synopsis of Mashle: Magic and Muscles

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. Secretly living in the woods, he spends every day training his body, building muscles strong enough to compete with the magic itself. However, seeing his identity exposed and his peaceful life threatened, Mash begins his journey to become a "divine seer," a role so powerful that society will have no choice but to accept his existence.

So, in order to maintain his peaceful life, Mash, without magic, enrolls in the prestigious Easton Academy of Magic, competing with the sons of some of the most powerful and elite in the kingdom. Lacking the ability to survive in Easton's magic, Mash seems to already be at a disadvantage compared to his classmates. To achieve his goals, Mash will have to fight his way through each trial using only his fists, overcoming magic with his muscles, all for the illustrious title of Divine Visionary!
