Mashle: Magic and Muscles manga series finishes

The Mashle: Magic and Muscles manga series will officially end this week with the publication of chapter 162 in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.

The final chapter will be included in Volume 18, which is scheduled to release for domestic audiences in October 2023.

Mashle started its serialization in January 2020, both written and illustrated by Japanese author Hajime Komoto, and has over five million copies in circulation as of the last update.

Out of the 17 published manga volumes, 12 are currently available in English with Volume 13 set to release in September 2023. Physical copies of the manga can be purchased via Amazon, Waterstones, and Bookshop with digital versions available through Google Play, Apple iBooks, Amazon Kindle, and Viz Media.

If you want to keep up to date with the manga, you can also read individual chapters via Viz Media as part of a $2.99 a month subscription to the platform, as well as via the Manga Plus app.

Mashle season 1 part 2 rumored to be in production

Moments after the episode 12 broadcast concluded in Japan, Mashle: Magic and Muscles season 1 second cour was announced by the series Twitter page anime in January 2024.

The announcement was accompanied by a new PV trailer, see below:

The good news is that a second saga to Mash Burnedead’s magical misadventure was always on the cards as the official Japanese website previously claiming that the TV series would be a “complete” anime adaptation.

This means that the TV series will look to adapt all of the content from the original, now-concluded, manga series – but how many chapters have been covered by episode 12?

Mashle: Magic and Muscles episode 11 ‘Mash Burnedead and The Survival of the Fittest’ adapted up until chapter 35 of the manga, with episode 12 expected to adapt a further four issues up to chapter 39.

This means that we are only around one-quarter of the way through the original source material, with fans subsequently expecting two 24-episode, two-cour seasons of the anime in total.
