@takashichea: Yeah i need should rewatch the series before the second season starts .Maybe a marathon run on it make more apealing.

Reguarding the voice actor for Nautsu in this.Cant find Fairy Tail rankings in viewership so kinda at one way makes me wonder.But its not a problem for voice actors to do two or 3 shows at a time.

I forgot to update the thread with new trailers and manga links. Yeah, they published the Adventure of Sinbad to explain the characters. Magi does create a lot of characters without giving them enough attention.

@Marshal Victory:

yeah, I know VAs can do 2 or 3 shows. It's just that I haven't seen Tetsuya Kakihara working on a new character for a while. Actors and Actresses like Yuki Kaji (Eren Jeager, Alibaba, the guy from Henneko) and Haruka Tomatsu (Asuna from SAO, Morgiana, Saki Rukino, Older Sister Maid from Maoyu) have been working on a lot of characters recently.

Ep. 26 was crammed full of stuff. Plus, that beginning, the cold open, showed a boatload of new characters.

Anyways, I still enjoyed. Aladdin is a big pervert. I feel sad that Kougyoku is tricked by Sinbad's charms. Did anyone noticed Morgiana was observing Alibaba and Kougyoku chatting in the courtyard.

Well, we got to use the discussion thread for wiki work, too. I received my Magi Vol. 1 and 2 shipment yesterday. I'm flipping thru the pages for the character names. I didn't scan the whole page because I didn't want to bend the manga volume's pages.

@Marshal Victory:

Damn these Interface spoilers, right? We're not safe in the ending credits some of the time.

Look at Hakuryuu's in the ending credits for season 1. They showed him with a wooden arm before his arm got cut off.

Should we bother to add Sinbad's Household Vessels?

Let's continue our conversation here.

Yes, we should.

I added Balalark Saika, Balalark Sei, and Balalark Kauza. I haven't added Zepar because I don't remember him saying the name of his Djinn Metal in the anime. Though, I could be mistaken. I have to check the Magi Wikia and the manga. Oh, don't confuse Household Vessel with Djinn Metal. They are two different things. Djinn Metal is what Dungeon Conquerors use while Household Vessels are for folks who are friends with a Djinn user (IE: Morgiana, Jafar, Masrur).

I will add Kougyoku's Djinn Metal in a moment.

@takashichea: Oh, you're right. Sinbad used two Djinn Metal in episode #2. I don't remember him using them before.

@bigz007:

We have the names of his Djinn and his technique names. If we're going to add his Djinn Metal (as object pages), we need the names. I'll try to find it. You can add his Djinn as character pages. Though, we won't have their manga or anime appearances. I added Amon and Paimon as a character page.

@takashichea: First one is named Focalor (red devilish one), and the second is named Zepar (chubby). I guess we need to see if those forms have different voice actors, if not I think we shouldn't make a new characters. They will be his other forms (like Frieza). We should add specific Metal Djinn's as abject pages ...

Look here

I haven't added Zepar because I don't remember him saying the name of his Djinn Metal in the anime.
If we're going to add his Djinn Metal (as object pages), we need the names.

I kind of said all earlier that except for Sinbad's Djinn Equip forms. That belongs on Sinbad's character page. None of them have different voices. I just haven't expanded Sinbad's power page.

I checked Kougyoku. Her Djinn Metal's name hasn't been revealed. All I know is her moves and her Djinn's name, Vinea.

@takashichea: Oh, my mistake. I thought Djinn and Djinn Metal use the same name.

@takashichea:

The latest episode was a little slow, but those pirates gave it a great cliffhanger. Can't wait to see what will happen.

@bigz007:

I liked it slow. Sometimes, Magi rushes too much. They usually cover 4 chapters an episode last season despite how long Balbadd arc is. It didn't have any padding.

In the long run, I hope Magi doesn't catch up to its manga because it will end up like Fairy Tail with a massive filler arc. Magi has no filler episodes at all.

I need to finish that Magi episode summary and read what manga chapters it covered.

@takashichea: Well, I guess your right. It's better to do it a little slower in that case.

@bigz007:

No, you don't have to agree with me. This is a discussion thread. Feel free to share your thoughts!

What do you look forward in Magi, the fights, the comedic scenes, etc? For me, it was the comedy. The fight scenes in Magi are too short for me to enjoy. Then again, I don't like long fights that drag out. I was never satisfied with Magi's battles.

Great job on uploading the images!

@takashichea: If I think you were wrong, I would say so. One Piece is actually doing the same thing, it's extremely slow, but the only reason is to avoid fillers. The studio learned their lesson, since their filler episodes were full of plot holes, and it's hard to explain it to some people that filler plot hole is not the same as a canon plot hole.
