Crunchyroll has dropped a new trailer for its upcoming fantasy anime, “Mashle: Muscles and Magic.”
The series is based on the manga of the same name, which was written and illustrated by Hajime Komoto and serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump.
The show is directed by Tomonari Tanaka, whose directing credits include “Hunter x Hunter.”
“Mashle: Muscles and Magic” is about a world where magic is used by everyone, except for protagonist Mash Burnedead, who compensates with his bulging muscles. He finds himself enrolled in Magic School, where he is determined to become a “Divine Visionary,” the best of the best.
The show’s Japanese voice cast includes Chiaki Kobayashi (“Tomodachi Game”) as Mash Burnedead, Reiji Kawashima as Finn Ames, Kaito Ishikawa (“My Hero Academia”) as Lance Crown, Takuya Eguchi (“Spy x Family”) as Dot Barrett and Reina Ueda as Lemon Irvine. Hiroaki Hirata (“One Piece”) serves as the narrator.
“Mashle: Muscles and Magic” will simulcast weekly episodes on Crunchyroll to over 200 countries and territories immediately after its premiere in Japan. The series is slated for an April release.
