Viz Media releases the Mashle: Magic and Muscles manga in English and describes the synopsis as:
Mash just wants to live in peace with his father in the forest. But the only way he’ll ever be accepted in the magic realm is by attending magic school and becoming a Divine Visionary—an exceptional student revered as the chosen one. But without an ounce of magic to his name, Mash will have to punch his way to the top spot.
The anime is based on Hajime Komoto’s manga series, which debuted in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on January 27, 2020, under the Jump Comics label. As of April 2023, sixteen tankoubon volumes had been released, with a 17th volume set to be released on July 4, 2023.
