@takashichea: That girl Marga reminds me of Koala. The episode was somewhat predictable but still amazing and enjoyable.

Dang it not sure how this happend but i almost missed 14. So went back watched it an 15 an gota say while it was pretty obvious where it was going. But its a good ride geting there.

One could replace the word "goi" the not magicaly inclined word they used. An replace it with any race or relgious discription an it would be almost be a history lesson in where things go wrong. One could also replace their class system an aply it to many a politcal system as well. Not sure if this was ment as a social /political comentary on the world or not.

Those 2 epsiodes almost make up for the week parts of season 1 for me atleast. Kept watching an thinking Matal Mogamett is Hitler. Also kept thinking Titus looked alot like Alibaba Saluja but also in character but less of a downer.

@Marshal Victory:

Wow, this recent episode's ending creep me out a bit. It's ironic that Matal is treating the Goi like how the Goi treated his kind in the past. Karma is going to hurt him back for his actions later on.

@ImDictatorBowDown:

Here's the manga version: Magi - The Labyrinth of Magic Discussion (Manga). I forgot to do the Kuroko's Basketball discussion manga version. I'll get to that one for you today.

@ImDictatorBowDown: @OkumuraTrain: @Marshal Victory: @bigz007: Does watch Magi? I forgot who is a Magi fan in this site.

Hope this video doesn't get pulled off.

Daisuke Ono reprises the lead, but an update to the series site reveals that the talent involved looks different than the Magi TV anime.

Few things about episode 16 sticks out. One is how they pronounce Titus. Now keep in mind im not a great speeker my self ,years of speech theropy an all. But here http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Titus goes over all the ways you can say the name. When Titus was talking to his magi she kept calling him Tit-us. Went back an tripple checked. maybe it is me old ears.

He wil betray his coutnry to stay the same for the girl. If we go back to alabas arena fight he was with the magi an he was not that small in size.

Last thing that stuck out. Neiher brought up how when people in the 5th district were close to death they were thrown down the water fall. How they were abused by the mages. Left a big argument point out . It could not have spliped their mind because they had to rescue the falling girl.

@Marshal Victory:

I pronounce Titus as "TAI-tus" instead of Tit-us. Magi is MA-GEE or Mag-GI. I don't really care because manga and anime is the same way.

I really love the racism and slavery elements in this anime. I remember in the Top 10 Best Anime of 2013!, Tom asked the community why Magi should belong. I forgot to say why. Magi is a diamond in the rough. It has flaws, but it's darker than most Shonen series. When Aladdin saw that Matal treated Marga as a pet cat, I was like what the hell is wrong with Matal. He wants Magicians to be treated with respect, but he won't do the same for Goi.

@takashichea: Yeah i pronouce it same way. Thats why it stood out to me.

Also if one looks at overall major problems in shonen then Magi comes out to so bad. It does not much backed in flash back filler. Or very much filler at all. It does not have a trounament but that can be a plus or minus depending. An so far its been on time.

@takashichea: @Marshal Victory:

I have a feeling that Aladdin will have to save Titus once Scheherazade is done with him.

Also, I was wondering is it a good idea to make a "Magi" concept page (for Aladdin, Scheherazade and Judar)?

Post by Marshal Victory (2,288 posts) See mini bio Level 13

@bigz007: I would think it would be good to have magi as a concept. They are not nomral wizards an mages.

@bigz007: @Marshal Victory:

I thought about making a Magi concept page, but we have to add (Magi) like I did for Magic Tools (Magi). Plus, the magic concept in Magi is very detailed. I don't know how I will add that info to the Magic concept page. That concept is very broad and applies to every franchise that has magic. The only way I know is to divide like I did with the Ghosts page.

Besides the wiki

Aladdin would probably save Titus and Matal. I clearly see Matal sinking into depravity because of his past and how he views magicians being superior to Goi. It's one thing to fight for your kind against injustice. To treat the others like livestock like they did in Musta'sim Kingdom is a death flag here. Karma is a Bitch in this series. Cassim, Dunya, and the others paid the price. For Hakuryuu, I think he would die later on in the series. The only guy who survived falling in depravity was Alibaba. That was an anime only scene.

17 was good. Excrement is hiting the rotary air moving device it seems.

@takashichea: He reimds me of so many dictators of the past. They did a great job on the character .

@bigz007: Your prodiciton is closer I think now that it was before. Because of 17.

@bigz007: @Marshal Victory:

I usually watch Magi on Sundays. I know simulcasts are late by one day, but wow, Magi comes out 2 days earlier. I was wondering why Ep. 42 and 41 share the same date. I saw on Magi Wikia, both of them have 1-26-14 as their dates.

@takashichea: I suppose the studio released two episodes on a same day, I didn't realized it sooner...

@bigz007:

No worries, that was really odd to have a double broadcast. I wish they announced it. I didn't notice it either. I'm behind in Magi. I'll whip up the summary for Ep. 41. I haven't seen Ep. 42 yet. From what you said, I can't wait to see Fanalis Corp in Ep. 42.
