Yet another episodes arrives (late) and the same question keeps popping up in my mind. When exactly are the rest of the characters showing up? There are only a couple of episodes left and the war seems to have reached its final stage. Hurry up…
So old man Matal finally made his way to his underground complex. He saw how old those non-magical people were begging them, the magicians, to keep them safe so that they can continue their pathetic lifestyle as they are being drained of energy during every single minute of every single day. But that’s not why Matal went down there. He doesn’t care about their wellbeing of their wishes. They are just livestock to him, nothing more. He went down there to use all of the black Rukh that he had been saving up. Fighting off countless of evil Djinn-like creatures isn’t going to be easy, not even for the Kou Empire’s army.
That being said, Alabiba destroyed one of those Djinns like it was nothing. Not to mention Kouen, the eldest son of the Ren family, rulers of the Kou Empire, and his followers. They showed up and annihilated all of those evil Djinns with only one attack. There is once again a huge shift in power taking place. Don’t be surprised if some of the main characters start looking weak again.
That being said, what about Aladdin? He managed to hold off the Leam Empire’s Fanalis squad, but now he seems like he’s out of juice. Fighting those evil Djinn-like creatures and/or the Kou Empire’s strongest warriors might be too hard for him. I dare call it impossible right now. I’m pretty sure the rest of Aladdin’s allies will show up next week. They have to…Read More
Why, Magi? Why? Why did you have to disappoint me so much!? Is this what I can look forward to after forcing me to wait yet another week? The fight might as well have ended during last week’s episode so that I could’ve been spared from this annoying feeling of pure disappointment.
I remember how the Fanalis commander held up his sword to use his Djinn equip. I remember that very well. So yeah, I was smiling when I finally saw him in that cool-looking mode as he was about to carve his way into the city of Magnostadt. Aladdin probably had no way of stopping that attack until Alibaba, late as hell, drops in and stops him from attacking. This eyesore of a character might have done something terribly wrong by stopping that guy. It’s quite obvious that Matal is still hiding something and it might’ve been better if the city was breached by the Leam Empire. I’m obviously only saying this because it might have stopped Matal’s plan, whatever it may be, from coming into fulfilment.
What do we have now? We have a bunch of pissed of characters and we have a dying Magi, Scheherazade. It seems that she, too, is just a copy of the original, and that it’s the original body of Scheherazade that’s actually dying, which means that all the copies, Titus included, will soon perish when the original body breathes it’s last breath.
What are we left with? Well, we are left with two strong characters, Aladdin and Alibaba, an empire that’s basically been defeated and on its way home, we have a Kou Empire that’s about to start its march towards Magnostadt, and Morgiana and Sinbad and his crew are still nowhere to be found. I’m guessing that Hakuryuu will show up when the Kou Empire does.Read More
What is going on with Magi? First they rescheduled the series a few days later and now it’s back to its original program? That is quite confusing. Maybe it’s because they needed to air one episode a little earlier in order to ‘sync’ with the rest of the shows?
Anyway, all hell has broken loose and people are dropping like flies (literally). It was quite awesome to see how overpowering the Fanalis are, which makes me wonder how their numbers have decreased to only a few dozen. They seem powerful and very adaptive. They can fight head-on, from a distance and they seem to endure pretty much everything you throw at them. It really makes me want to learn more about their tribe and about what makes them so ridiculously strong. Also, a small history lesson on what happened to them would be nice, too. They haven’t told us enough about the Fanalis if you ask me.
So Aladdin finally removed that gem, huh? The smile on my face was so tremendous that even the Joker from Batman would shamefully back away. Aladdin finally showed people that he is a true Magi. I was actually surprised to see that old man Matal didn’t know that. I thought that he knew pretty much everything about Aladdin. That was nice!
The ending left me unsatisfied. Yes, the Fanalis are not done fighting, although the Leam Empire’s morale has been completely shattered. Where is the Kou Empire? Where is Sinbad and his crew of elite warriors? It looks like the war is almost over and most of the (known) characters haven’t even shown up yet. Perhaps Alibaba will make it in time to show us how much he’s improved…Read More
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.Read More
I hate reschedules. Believe it or not, I, too, work with a schedule. I watch the episodes I want to watch most right away and write a review the very next day in order to plan it for the day after that. Reschedules like these force me to redo my own schedule. In this case I’m kind of happy since I can make a few favourable changes.
Anyway, hell has officially broken loose. War has broken out and everyone is currently being recruited to join the fight between magicians, normal people and people with special items that give them a lot of power (like the objects found only in dungeons). I kind of have this idea in my mind where Aladdin, in front of that crazy old headmaster, yanks out that gem in his arm and uses an incredible amount of Rukh to overpower him or maybe even summon a Djinn to come to his aid. I actually start to drool whenever I think about that, and I’ve already accepted the fact that something like that probably won’t happen.
Old man Matal refuses to hand over his city to other empires because of their non-magical rulers. He is dead-set on becoming a magician king and rule over all non-magical folk. He basically begged for war after he managed to win Titus over to his side, which is something that Scheherazade refuses to accept no matter what.
The next episode is going to be nuts. Scheherazade sent out her elite Fanalis corps in order to take down Matal and his followers. The Kou Empire is probably planning something of their own and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Sinbad and his crew sometime soon either. I guess fun time is over for Aladdin. It’s time to find out what he has learned during the past couple of episodes.Read More
