@Marshal Victory:

I'll reply to the Arpeggio comment soon. I'm almost caught up to you. Been enjoying it so far. Just got to finish the Valvrave summary. Though, the site has been lagging since December 5th.

As for Magi, more chibi, blood, and boobs is season 2's improvements.

@Marshal Victory:

Morgiana's episode was short and padded with flashbacks. Even though the mangaka is a woman, she tends to favorite her male characters. I always thought in Shonen shows, you favor the female characters because your audience is mostly guys.

@takashichea: Depends on the age group of the guys your aiming for .Older it matters less than younger i think.. or hope at least.Im a old guy so as long as the story is good to me an they have characters i like then i care for not the genders.

Word is 13 episodes in this season.So i can see the clifhanger from here :/

@Marshal Victory:

The manga finished the Magnostadt arc, if I heard correctly. The anime is rushing right now, and it will probably cover the end of Magnostadt. Yeah, I like to talk about target audience a lot for shows. Magi is for everyone 16 and up and 18 and up if Paimon is uncensored.

@takashichea: Sounds right, but think to other cultures female topless is not as taboo as in the states.So ya agreed that sounds about right.Tho it may vary from culture to culture.

@Marshal Victory:

I just realized this episode was half set up and 25% Morgiana and 25% padded flashbacks. Still, I wonder if Magi can properly introduce us to its huge character roster. Someone in the community stated that Magi spotlighted its characters and uses them better than most Shonen shows, Naruto and Bleach. I somewhat agree with them.

@takashichea: 12 of season 2 was just epic.Not a ton of action but things set up threw out the series pay off big here for me.Theirs a luke come to the dark side moment to.

@Marshal Victory:

I havent' seen it yet. Too busy collecting screenshots for Kuroko's Basketball. It's good to hear that this week's episode is good. So far Magi's episodes are like a roller coaster. Some are boring or full of paddings, some has too much blood and boobs, and one is just right.

@Marshal Victory:

People say Fairy Tail is the Shonen series that has the most boobs and ass fan service shots. When I look at Magi, I was wrong. Magi beats Fairy Tail at fan service. That gives me an idea for a blog. Shonen Series with the most T & A in it.

@takashichea: So the Bleach isnt even thought of for boobs or fan service?Most of the time the bar is set low for people to calll fan service .Most of the episode with Rangiku Matsumoto had some boob staring gag.Most shonen series have TnA because... its aimed at boys. from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sh%C5%8Dnen Shōnen (少年), shonen, or shounen, is a Kanji word literally meaning few years and generally referring to a typical boy

Some series are bit heavy handed (one could say cheeky ) other are rather clever about it.Would be a shorter list to put together Shonen Series that did not have TnA in it.That did not use widely disputed fan service.

I loved Morgiana since the series began. Though I admittedly quit the series around the time she got her matal vessel. I remember starting to read it the day it came out scalanated. I later found out the series actually topped japanese manga rankings. I was happy. My taste is top class! Toph was my footworker chick before Morgiana, and this is why I pitted them both in a fight! xD

@Marshal Victory:

Agreed. A list would be nice. I'll do it. It would be interesting to find Shonen shows that don't have no fan service. The show comes to mind is Attack on Titan.

@Low:

I like Morgiana and Aladdin, they're my two most favorite characters. I made the Magi Manga discussion thread.

@takashichea: Nope attack had some "fan service" not just the giant arse of the female titan either.Just the term is used so broad now, but i personly would put it on a almost no fan service list to.

I couldnt even say Detective Conan it has some fan service tho light in it.

The recent episode had the best fight this season. Titus vs Aladdin was an entertaining match. I love how Aladdin grope Titus. That was so unexpected.

@takashichea: I have to agree, and animation was amazing like always.

Almost missed 13 with all the new stuff starting.We know Titus is not a Magi from earlyer episodes.So his gem shrinks him down an gives him magic power?

@Marshal Victory:

Good point since we saw all four Magi in Sinbad's talk or someone's talk. The silhouettes confirm Scheherazade, Judar, and Yunan. Aladdin is the odd one.
