The spring anime “Mashle: Magic and Muscles” released the story outline and preview scene cuts for episode 5 “Mash Burnedead and the Unpopular Classmate,” which starts airing on Friday, May 5.

“Mashle: Magic and Muscles” is based on the abnormal magic fantasy by Komoto Hajime that has been serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump since 2020.
Set in a world where individuals possess magical powers, the story centers around Mash Burnedead, who cannot use magic, as he survives with his “muscles” as a weapon.

The title for episode 5 is “Mash Burnedead and the Unpopular Classmate.”
Mash and Lance bet each other’s silver-grade coin in a game. After winning, Mash successfully rescues Finn, Lemon, and Tom, who have been bottled up. While the students smoothly complete their assignments, a joint extracurricular class is held by House Adler and House Lang.

The assignment is to exterminate forest scorpions for a reward of a class coin. Mash, who is lost in the forest, is forced to work with Dot, a first-year student who belongs to the same house.

“Mashle: Magic and Muscles” episode 5, “Mash Burned and the Unpopular Classmate,” begins airing on TOKYO MX and other stations on May 5.
