Viz Media describes the series as:
Mash simply wants to live in the forest with his father in peace. But the only way he’ll ever be accepted into the magical realm is to attend magic school and become a Divine Visionary—a gifted student revered as one of the chosen. Mash, on the other hand, will have to punch his way to the top without the benefit of magic.
