Of all the anime that came out last year that I watched through Crunchyroll, maybe Mashle be the one that takes the title of “the series that made me laugh the most.” The animated adaptation of Hajime Komoto’s manga (produced by A-1 Pictures) not only convinced me for its action scenes, but also for the numerous parodies that are made of the Harry Potter universe. If you are fans of the Wizarding World, I am convinced that the series will entertain you from beginning to end.
But I am not writing this to blindly recommend it, but to offer alternatives in case you want to see more works that are similar to Mashle somehow. If you like its story, characters, combat or setting, I can think of several animes that might be to your liking. Let’s go there!
One Punch Man
This is the most obvious comparison of all. Mashle and One Punch Man look very similar because both have an innocent and sometimes somewhat goofy protagonist that He has enough physical power to defeat any rival at one blow.
Furthermore, the two works make a great emphasis on comic scenesmany of them in reference to the reactions of the rest of the world when Mash or Saitama demonstrate their true strength.
Black Clover is another of the great mangas of the current Shonen Jump (although it is absent right now). How is Tabata’s work similar to Komoto-sensei’s story? Well again The answer is found in its protagonists. The worlds of both animes are governed by the use of magic, and although they are very strong, neither Asta nor Mash possess the slightest hint of magical power.
Of course, the main character of BC manages to improve himself through constant training, while Mash simply has to “stay” in shape so as not to lose all the progress he made by doing fitness from a very young age.
Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun
If we move away from the protagonist and focus on other aspects of Mashle such as “life in a magic academy”it is likely that the anime that is most similar to it is Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun.
The protagonists are not too similar in terms of their personalities, but they do share a common element. They both enter a school hiding their true identity. Throughout the series they will make all kinds of friends and meet the most diverse beings, and all with a good focus on comedy.

Mob Psycho 100
Mob Psycho 100 is the other great work of ONE, the author of One Punch Man. Is it a coincidence that you also find a resemblance to Mashle? Well no, both animes also have in common that Its protagonists present a certainly introverted personality. and They start out as people without friends..
It should also be noted that while Mob is an extremely powerful young man due to his psychic abilities, Mash is also powerful when she uses her physical abilities. And they present a similar comedy!
These are the four Japanese animated series that are most similar to Mashle in terms of genre, setting, story and characters. Do you think there is one that is even more similar than the previous ones and I haven’t mentioned it? Well, leave it in the comments!
