Magi 2 episode 14
Is it just me or did the story just take a strange turn? I’m pretty sure I remember last week’s episode quite well, especially the ending. It could be just me. I must admit that stranger things have happened in Magi.
I remember it quite well how Titus, the animated version of Kanye West’s ego, almost succeeded in killing Aladdin. He definitely would have succeeded if the school’s headmaster hadn’t interfered. I thought for sure that Titus was to be held down until further notice, so to see him standing before Aladdin right at the beginning was kind of strange.
Those two becoming friends was way too sudden and it seemed way too easy. It’s almost like Aladdin forgot that he almost died at the hands of his new friend. To see them parading around town like they did was simply disturbing. I guess that’s the biggest Issue for me. To see them laughing together like that, being stuff and playing with animals… It’s just too damn strange.
The second half was so much better. They finally decided to do a little sightseeing in one of the forbidden sections. They stumbled upon an underground city with a lot of near-dead people that had given up on life. I don’t even think that I should be describing that as a city. It was more a Magoi farm where people’s Magoi was constantly being taken from them whilst there. It supposedly supplies the city above ground with Magoi to power their magic tools and ensure that they can keep on living like they do. The people underground are nothing more than disposable cattle in order to keep their magical city running. I guess we finally understand why Aladdin was told to be careful of that old man. I can’t wait to see how he will deal with this issue.
