Magi 2 episode 22
I’m going to have to schedule this week’s Hajime no Ippo review by yet another day. I don’t have it in me right now. I’m completely out of energy and writing this particular episode is draining whatever energy I have left. God, I’m truly, truly tired…
I must not think about the mild predictability I’m currently experiencing in Magi. Thinking about that might put me straight to sleep. You can already tell what’s going to happen next week. It’s a good thing that the ending had a nice little twist. I would’ve been pretty disappointed if it didn’t. How else could the story make any sense at this point?
So we finally get a brief estimate of how Kouen acts in the heat of battle. He seems overly confident and quite level-headed. He doesn’t seem to make any rash decisions and seems to care for his family and troops. I don’t know if that’s just because he has plans for them or because he’s genuinely concerned for their wellbeing, but something doesn’t add up.
Matal may have been defeated by Titus, but the real enemy finally shows his face (kind of). It finally starts to make a little sense. Just a little. It seems that Hakuryuu’s insane mother tried very hard to resurrect her father. That just sounds a little strange. That big ball of dark Rukh is supposed to be her father? Perhaps her husband? I don’t know. I hope to learn a bit more about the next week.
The real question being right now; where the hell is Hakuryuu, where the hell is Morgiana and where the hell are Sinbad and his team of elite warriors? They should’ve been here a few episodes ago. Hakuryuu will undoubtedly show up to stop his insane mother, Sinbad and his men will probably show up at the end to fight off Kouen and his men and Morgiana will probably show up with that Magi to fight off that evil being together with Aladdin. Pretty good guess, no?
