Can you imagine working on those muscles and punching through life hurdles in a world where magic is supreme? Impossible, right? But not for a protagonist who proves time and again as he overpowers magic users with pure muscles and ends the first season of Mashle: Magic and Muscles with a strong punch!
Right after airing the finale episode, the official Twitter page of the anime revealed to release the second season on January 2024 and cover the most awaited Divine Visionary Selection Exam Arc. Mashle aims to become a Divine Divisionary in order to live a peaceful life with his grandfather. However, Mashle keeps making enemies along the way as he makes his strong presence known by pure incident. To prove this, the trailer further teased new faces and a new villain brewing a devious plot behind the scene.
