In the Mashle series, the fourth story arc is the Divine Visionary Selection Exam. It showcases the Easton Magic Academy’s ‘Prefect’ system, where each dorm is assigned a representative student who is seemingly the most vital member of the dorm. Currently, the prefects are Rayne Ames (Adler), Abel Walker (Lang), and Margarette Macaron (Orca). Rayne Ames is an exceptional magic user with three magic marks, making him the youngest personto achieve this feat.

It is discovered that triple-liner magic users can summon a wand’s ‘true form’ and harness the power of a god. Rayne summons Ares, the God of War. In the exam’s first round, Leblanc Russell, Max Land, and Dolb Marx are eliminated, while Finn Ames uses his magic for the first time. The Master Cane wands are introduced, and Carpaccio Luo-Yang possesses one of them. Carpaccio Luo-Yang, Aorio Morris, and Moore Tomato are eliminated in round two. Innocent Zero is shown to be after Mash, and in round three, Mash defeats Margarette. Shortly after, Innocent Zero invades the Colosseum.
