Got some good shots of Olba and Aum Madaura.

Aum Madaura
Aum Madaura

Episode was good, not too slow or too quick. You can see Aladdin is shocked that "mother" is brainwashing the children and making them give up their Magoi. I loved the troll faces.

@takashichea: Madaura character looks good. I think I saw her (or someone similar) in first season. I might be wrong though.

Fourth episode this season was pretty good .Good pace with intresting plot turns. Hakuryuu Ren came into his own with his powers .Really nice animation during the ship fight. Sill dont care for Alibaba Saluja now.But Hakuryuu Ren sure seems to have got his act together.

@Marshal Victory:

Who is your favorite character? I know you hate Alibaba. The anime made him more whinier than his manga counterpart or we can blame on Yuki Kaji's portrayal.

@takashichea: Morgiana . Good character back ground. Overcame her past an seems to be building future.When they almsot killed her off in the 1st series i kept thinking oh crap Alibaba Saluja just got more to go on about.Was fairly sure she was gona live tho.Promenent character on intro genraly dont die or at least for long .

Episode 5 and I remembered why I love Morgiana so much. Also Aum Madaura is turning into a great threat/villain, her power reminds me of Shukuro Tsukishima, and I love when someone have the power to mess with peoples minds.

Great episode.

Magi was fun. I wished they show Morgiana's mom. We got to see Aladdin's mom in silhouette. This episode is great for Morgiana and Hakuryuu fans.

@bigz007: yup 5 was pretty good. Alibaba Saluja is still whiney tho.Is it wrong to hope aladin makes alaba look at the prettty wrabits an knock him out or something. Morgiana

at this point int he series sure feels more of a shonen hero than Alibaba Saluja .Heck hes almost comic relif now. :/

@Marshal Victory: @bigz007:

Taking into the account for the character tables for Magi - The Labyrinth of Magic season 1 wiki page, I spotlighted

Main

  • Aladdin
  • Morgiana
  • Alibaba

Support

  • Hakuryuu
  • Kougyoku
  • Sinbad
  • Jafar

Since it's repetitive to do the same to season 2, I'm going to just do supporting character table. I figured we pick 2-3 important characters from the 3 destination: Laem Empire (Reim) = Alibaba, Magnostadt = Aladdin, and Dark Continent = Morgiana.

I forgot you were a Magi fan. I need to introduce to my teammate,

This is how we work on the Magi project:

  • I do the episode summaries
  • Bigz007 adds the screencaps

Just tell me what you want to help out, so we don't step on each other's feet.

@takashichea: 6 was better than 5 hell it almost captured those 1st 4 or so episodes in the 1st seasons vibe.Some unexpected turns .Very nice.

@Marshal Victory:

Just finished episode 6 and its summary. I loved it. I think Morgiana's rejection was more clearer in the manga. I have to check the manga.

Hakuryuu is going turn out Darth Vader on us. I swear to god. I hope it doesn't turn out that way. It's pretty cliche.

@Marshal Victory:

I was working on the wiki and reading the manga to see any differences. I can't believe how graphic Magi is. I thought Magi was for children age 10 and up. Damn, this is pretty brutal.

Post by SimonAGladiat (24 posts) See mini bio Level 10

@takashichea: Well, Magi's story actually is very dark... It seems a light-hearted story and has colorful graphic but the story is very dark (at least for me)...

What's up with anime this season? Freezing went from harem to almost horror, and Magi just went crazy with this decapitation.

@bigz007: If it was a movie the trailer for anime 2013 would be. " In a world where anime goes wild !" .Alot of surpsies this season an for me a ton of anime like alot now.Magi realy steped up its game an pace again.

@takashichea: thats fairly close to the episde but i dont rember him holding up her head.Tho i did want her to get a just end.If she had gone on the ship odds are she could have escaped with her powers even in chains.Dont rember any where they striped her of her powers.Also if she had not tried to be his mom who he wants to kill odds are he wouldnt have choped off her head.Justice irony for the win.

@SimonAGladiat: 1st season started off that way then it seemed to weeken as it went on.Which is what i ment by episde 6 capturing that 1st season 4 or so episodes vibe. It had a fast pace but it had dark undertones that they didnt shy away from.Saldy it felt like the last half of the seaon it really did avoid the dark stuff.

Yeah the manga shows the much more dark and brutal side. But it still manages to keep the series lighthearted tone most of the time.
