@SpeedForceSpider: @Marshal Victory:

I know it had some dark moments. First time was Jamil shoving a knife into Morgiana's jaw. The second time was Isaac getting skewered through the head. I hope the show doesn't include rape. I don't think our author, Shinobu Ohtaka, will do it.

Magi is a strange shonen show. It's more brutal than Naruto and Bleach with how it disguises itself with those nonchalant innocent moments coupled with fan service and chibi.

I did see another show like Magi that surprises folks, Shaman King. Both series are coming of age story that began like a typical Shonen show.

@takashichea: Still need to watch Shaman King some time. Soon as i cach up on Detective Conan ill probly try it or some other older anime.Heard alot of good things about it tho.

I like the dark parts in magi to.Im hoping to see more turns an plot pace like we had early on in season one. These last few episodes really felt that way.It moved fairly fast an fluid.

@Marshal Victory:

Don't watch the Shaman King anime. Read the manga.

It's going to be cool to see the trio separate into their own journeys. I know Tom was frustrated when the first season focused on Alibaba more than Aladdin. I heard Magnostadt's story arc was long which is Aladdin's destination.

@takashichea: Hmm looked it up on amazon an they have the manga on kindel now. . i might go that route .Another good reason to get one.But i heard alot of good things about the anime tho .

Alibaba became for me a unlikeable character 2/3rd way threw 1st season .That did not help matters with the plot pace it only made it feel longer. Really hopen we get more with out him an more with morgana an aladin.

Okay question about Magi. Which anime starts the series? Reason why I ask this is because in the Google search bar, there are multiple Magi. So which is the Magi that started the series?

Use Anime Vice not Google. There should be only 2 series in the franchise:

Episode 34 was great since it has some action and bizarre chibi moments. Loved Morgiana's scenes. They're precious.

I didn't mean to add some shipping opinions of mine, but I was rooting for Alibaba and Morgiana. When I saw these scenes, I was like, "Alibaba, you cheating bastard." Poor Morgiana, which boy will you choose in the end.

That's just me. For Ren Kouha, his voice was excellent. There were censorship noted in the battle scenes. I'll write it down.

@takashichea: I was thinking the same. It's obvious that Morgiana stayed with the team because of Alibaba and her feeling for him. Now the team is splitting up and maybe Morgiana will search for Hakuryuu after witnessing Alibaba in his true nature. It would be a good twist.

@bigz007:

Morgiana sees Alibaba as a friend. She didn't have any family. She is really attached to Aladdin and Alibaba. I love how jealous she got. Though, I could be wrong here. :)

@Marshal Victory:

That's a good title. Don't forget the yandere red head. Well not yandere. His face reminds me of that chick from Future Diary.

Agreed. Plus, boobs physics was in favor over real physics. They just bounce for no reason. Damn Aladdin kept sleeping. I wanted to learn more about Sphintus Carmen.

Yea, but it was so funny how he couldn't finish his story... correction, start his story.

Best episode of the season ... ok least the intro part.. all star mvp goes to the cat that pees on Alibaba!!!The rest wasnt bad but it looks like his karma has caught up with him.

Season 2 episode 10 alternate title should have been.. " Alibaba spanks his gorellia !"

Second season is flowling much better than second half of the 1st.No division of fun good stuff going on now in the series.

A little too much blood. There was a lot of flashbacks. I guess they were used to pad out the episode. It's a good episode. Compared to Aladdin's 2 episode adventure in Magnostadt, Aladdin's story use too much repetitive training scenes. I can't wait to see Morgiana's episode.

@takashichea: Really? I thought they were kinda restrained on blood.Sure we seen some when the gorilla bit his arm. but the shallow cuts were less than it could have been. Think of the old wrestling where they would cut their foeheads an get all bloody.As many shallow cuts the gollira had he should have left blood puddles when he moved.

Plus if i recall right it was cartoon blood red not the deeper red.They were in a arena so i dont see many ways to cut back what was shown.Not siloettes would have worked ( or other things i cant spell) .K im out for bit sinus infeciton an broncitus /le sigh.

@bigz007:

It's okay. I couldn't upload images. Takes 10 minutes to upload 1 image.

@Marshal Victory:

You're right. I just winced at the biting part. I'm fine with blood bath scenes in Shin Sekai Yori.

@takashichea: Was thinking about this today to. Shows been fairly heavy with chibi to. So thats even what blood shown seems worse than some of the things in other anime because you go from cute to blood it seems worse.
