In this magical world, one is easily identified as having magical abilities by a distinctive mark on their face. Those unable to practice magic are swiftly exterminated to maintain the magical integrity of society. However, deep within a forest lies an anomaly in Mash Burnedead, who can be found pumping iron with one arm and lifting a cream puff with the other. This aloof boy with superhuman strength—but no magical abilities—leads a quiet life with his father, far removed from society.

Mash's peace is soon disturbed when the authorities discover his lack of magical powers. They issue him an ultimatum: compete to become a "Divine Visionary," which would force everyone to accept him, or be persecuted forever. To protect his family, he enrolls in the prestigious Easton Magic Academy, which only the most elite and gifted students are allowed to attend. Now, Mash must overcome his shortcomings as a magicless being and surpass the other students—relying solely on his muscles.

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
If Saitama went to Hogwarts, to become an imperial scholar, then this would be that Anime.

Plot: That is the plot, above, just that. On paper, at least, if not anything else, this should be entertaining by that alone. Add to that stakes and scenarios, you've got yourself a pretty decent script.

On a a side note, although it is Shounen, it is more of a gag Anime than a serious one, so jokes and gags galore. Apart from that there is nothing much to be talked about at this point.

Characters: Thus far almost no character has done anything worth a mention, apart from ...

Initially I thought, this is like harry potter X one punch man, with maybe a little black clover on top.
But the more episodes go by, the more I'm convinced that it is not just a blatant harry potter and one punch man ripoff (which it is), I'm fully convinced that it is actually a parody of both.
And an awesome and hilarious one at that.

That being said, there is also something about this anime, the art style, the humor, that reminds me of what anime was before every single studio out there was pumping out 10 of the same isekai everyday with the cheapest cgi imaginable..

It ...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this is like a Harry Potter X One Punch Man anime. For real I felt like the creator was like. What if I just gave Saitama a head full of hair, and replaced Harry's place in hogwarts and gave it to Saitama. Oh and make him love creme puffs! The reason I love this show is it's just like one punch man. Our MC has that non-caring, in his own world, attitude that he can actually afford to act like that because his strength is so OP. Interestingly enough our MC is Physical base with ...
