Magi 2 episode 03
I hate to say this, but I am really not very satisfied with this episode. It’s only the third episode to boot. I expected so much more. It was quite obvious that they were going for laughs here, even though there was only one funny scene.
I must say, this episode really put Alibaba in a negative light. He struck me as a needy, scared little boy that didn’t want to be separated from his friends, even though he could’ve benefited so much more if he had stayed with Sinbad and his crew. Instead he snuck aboard because he had some mission that Sinbad supposedly agreed to, and listen in on what his friends had to say about him. It’s kind of petty that he, a future king if it’s up to Aladdin, would behave that way. It really changes my opinion about that character. Too bad, I kind of thought that he was pretty cool when he obtained that power in season one.
It’s a mistake, period. Sinbad could’ve taught him a whole lot more on how to properly use that power. He cannot do a full equip yet, which is something that Sinbad and his crew could’ve taught him. Right now he’s just rushing into things when he’s not even prepared. Aladdin will probably end up saving him again.
Despite the fact that the scene where Alibaba was listening in on his friends was the best thing about this episode, I still think the ending shows promise. A mage showed up at the end with a lot of friends in order to steal everything on Aladdin’s boat. He looked pretty strong so I’m kind of hoping for a decent fight.
