Key takeaways from mid-season review of Mashle Magic and Muscles:
- Mashle Magic and Muscles is a fun anime to watch, with an execution that makes up for its lack of originality in the story and writing.
- Mash’s physical strength is a defining aspect of the anime, with a dedication to showcasing his feats that makes it enjoyable to watch.
- The animations and art style are impressive, and the opening and ending themes are also noteworthy.
So have you imagined what would happen if Saitama woke up one day and decided to join Hogwarts? Yeah well, that is what Mashle offers you. And yes, this anime is very much inspired by Harry Potter, they even have their own Quidditch in this world lol.
So Mashle Muscles and Magic is really entertaining. The story is a bit iffy, nothing too good but not too bad either. But the anime as a whole, manages to be really fun to watch.
So welcome back to another one of my mid-season reviews. Today we will be taking a look at Mashle Magic and Muscles. So let’s get right into it!
What do I think about Mashle Magic and Muscles?
So let me be clear. The story and writing of this anime are rather flat. The school and the house system are taken from Harry Potter while the coin system to become the Divine Visionary is pretty common. What the story lacks in originality though, is made up for by how well it is executed. Mash is so strong physically that his feats appear like magic. As I said, imagine Saitama joining Hogwarts.
The amount of dedication to show Mash absolutely owning a magic user with sheer brute strength is commendable. He does not care who he is up against, he will beat the living hell out of anyone he does not like. He is the definition of musclebrain. When someone tries explaining to him something even slightly complex, his brain overloads lol.
Now, on the one hand, this is something very in character for Mash on the other hand, I don’t like this troupe because it becomes an excuse to hold back information. Which leads to poor world-building. But you know, that is not what this anime is about. It is just a fun ‘what if’ scenario inspired by Harry Potter that you put your brain aside and enjoy.
One last thing I’d like to mention before the conclusion. the animations and art style are pretty awesome. And the opening and ending themes are really good too.
So yeah, overall, Mashle Magic and Muscles is a very fun anime to watch. Despite the story stumbling in certain sections, this anime does not fail to bring a smile to a face every single episode. Let me know what you guys think in the comments below. I will take my leave here. See ya!
