Countless masterpieces have emerged from Weekly Shonen Jump, the ever-popular manga magazine, and many have been turned into anime. Among them, one that has materialized in 2023 is Mashle: Magic and Muscles. It is a series that combines fantasy, action, and comedy. The story follows Mash, a protagonist with overwhelming physical strength but devoid of magical ability, in a world where everything is determined by magic. This is just the beginning.
The manga, which started publication in 2020, was animated by A-1 Pictures in April 2023. Those who started watching Mashle from the anime may find the episodes currently animated cover only a fraction of the entire manga. If you have completed all the existing anime episodes, it’s natural to want to enjoy the continuation of the story. Here, I will thoroughly explain where the Mashle anime ends in the manga, to help you progress from the point where the anime left off.
Knowing specifically from which volume and chapter to start reading will allow you to continue enjoying the world of Mashle.
