Magi 2 episode 18
I really expected a lot more after last week’s episode. This episode was like a preview of what’s to come. A taste of action before the real thing starts. It made me think about the remaining few episodes… They will not be sufficient to cover everything… Perhaps they’re already discussing a third season?
The reason this all started is because old man Matal is being a selfish pain in the ass. He thinks he knows everything because his friends and family were treated like dirt during a time where stuff like that was normal. I was actually surprised that he thought that a couple of magical barriers and long-ranged attacks would be enough to stop his enemies from reaching his magical city of death and destruction. Either he really is a fool that thinks that magicians are the strongest and smartest out there or it’s another one of those tricks to fool the viewers into thinking that that’s really all there is to it. That would certainly be very disappointing after all we’ve seen.
I’m also a little disappointed that Aladdin is still fooling around. There’s a war going on right now. He still isn’t using his Magi powers even though Matal probably already knows who he is. Who cares if he doesn’t? It won’t matter if Aladdin doesn’t stop him in time before more people die because of that old man’s foolish desire to create a world where he and his magicians rule.
I’m just happy that those Fanalis characters are raising so much hell. It’s really no wonder that their kind is nearing extinction, even though more and more of them keep popping up all over the place. Those characters are really overpowering. I definitely wouldn’t mind watching what kind of damage a whole group of them could do against a city full of magicians.
