Magi 2 episode 09
Sometimes I really doubt my ability to pick a good show to write about. With Magi it’s no different. I generally like what I see a lot, but there are a few characters that just don’t interest me. Alibaba is one of them, although he was quite cool in this episode.
Alibaba travelled many miles to learn something that Sinbad could’ve taught him. He lied to his friends, acted real tough when he was actually getting in the way of progress, and for what? He walked many a mile and missed many meals. He was practically a skeleton when he finally arrived. Hell, he even failed the first exam because of it.
It makes me wonder why he’s doing all of this? Sinbad could’ve very well taught him how to use his powers. Sinbad could’ve also told him that he has two types of Magoi coursing through his veins, although most of us already knew that. It’s why Aladdin kept seeing two different types of Magoi emanating from his body.
Anyway, it was quite amusing. Did I see an episode that didn’t focus on poor-dressed female characters? No. It was still pretty much the same. Alibaba met a few old friends that helped him out by giving him a place to sleep and food to eat, only to end up fighting that very same chick at their casino. It just goes to show that his former title is still giving him a helping hand every now and again. I’m not sure I like that because it gives me the idea that he has an unfair advantage, even though that’s probably not the case here. Either way, I am more focussed on Aladdin and Morgiana. Can’t wait to see how she is doing…
