Magi 2 episode 04
I can’t say that it was a bad episode in general, but I’m really not happy with what I saw here. I hate how these types of stories go back in forth when it comes to a character’s abilities. It just pisses me off a bit and makes me feel as though we’re back to square one.
Of course, I’m talking about the way Aladdin was captured and taken away by that cocky midget. I took him away as though it was nothing and Aladdin didn’t even seem to struggle. He didn’t use magic, he didn’t hit or even yell to get away. It was the same thing with Morgiana and Alibaba. Neither used any of their abilities in order to help their friend. Hakuryuu was the only one that tried his best to save Aladdin whilst keeping the others at bay. I simply hate the fact that they always make characters look weaker than they are. Suddenly they weren’t able to fight… Ridiculous.
Now a new character shows her face, a women by the name of Aum Madaura. She’s a magic user that also uses little children to her bidding. She’s clearly insane and probably very strong. She’s probably ready to sacrifice any amount of children to get what she wants, but that’s still in the future I suppose.
I’m expecting a make-up battle next week. This week was pathetic and very disappointing. Everyone was weak and feeble, so I can only hope that suddenly everyone remembers to use all the weapons and knowledge that they obtained during their time together. It’s going to suck pretty badly if they don’t.
