I´ll start this review by saying that i haven´t read the manga yet, im saying this because many people say that the anime isn´t on the same level of the manga and that it is a bad adaptation missing out chapters and giving bad explanations about how things work. So keep in mind that i´m doing this review having only the knowledge given by the anime.

Story/Setting/Combat depth - Ok, so i´m not only reviewing the story and world here but the combat depth too, because i think that it´s an important part on any battle anime.

SETTING

The story is set in an alternate recreation of the read more

Shows like Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic really catch me off guard. It's so rare nowadays to see a battle shonen that delivers a feeling of exploration without getting too caught up in itself. Is it perfect? Of course not, but if there's one thing it gets right is its sense of adventure.

Magi takes place in a vast fantasy world with a ton of tie-ins to 1001 Arabian Nights. The setting is huge, spanning across many diverse countries, which presents an enthrallingly enormous scope. Aladdin is a young boy who some call a Magi, and the story follows his journey for self-discovery alongside his read more

From someone who has watched countless shounen, it becomes typical to look at a show labelled "shounen", and dismiss it as mundane and cliche. But with every new addition to this vast genre, there are always shows/manga that stick out more than others.

Thankfully, Magi does this.

Story: (9/10) With a setting based on Arabian Nights, you can expect (or at least hope for), a gripping narrative. Thankfully, Magi is structured so that the focus on the two main protagonists (Alibaba and Aladdin) is well orchestrated, and has a unique vibe to it. Through this, the story can become very dark and gripping, while not read more

This anime doesn't seem to be all that original or impressive at first come first serve, but as it goes on, it begins to show it's true brilliant colors.

Story: 8/10 This anime isn't like the 1001 Arabian Night's tales. Magi basically centers around these two guys named Aladdin and Alibaba.The duo travel around the world trying to discover the mysteries behind the existence of Magi, the government of various kingdoms, and the dungeons that are brought up by them. Early on, they encounter Morgiana, a slave who possesses innate strength, and they become friends. This isn't one of those shonen anime that is blabbing about read more

Recommendations

Both series look like light comedy/action at first yet both end up having much deeper and darker stories.
Despite it's bright colours, some dark themes get explored and both series are not afraid to kill people here and there.
They all have young main characters who are set on adventure where they meet a lot of new people and friends.
Both have: - Endless adventure based on the nakama powah and fights plus power upgrades. - A group of friends with powers with similar personalities (Ali/Natsu= energetic guy plus comic relief that gets fired up when its needed; Alladin/Wendy plus Lucy=A blue haired kid that seems weak but its not and its main goal is to make friends/ and is capable of summoning a helper(Genie/key spirit); Morgiana/Erza= serious and strong, fights like hell and has a tragic past related to slavery and bullying; Sinbad/Gray: Likes to strip a lot; Kougyoku/Juvia: has a crush on the guy that likes to strip and has the power of water, also suffers from a drastic personality change when is fighting and in the beginning is from the "enemy side".
- One of the antagonists has the power of thunder.
- Enemies becoming friends/Friends becoming enemies If you like one you´ll definitely enjoy the other;)
Both series feature two prominent characters who are close to one another and always looking after one another's well being. The both of them go on a form of journey to fulfill their goals while the same time helping others. It brings them for a journey and gives them new hope for the world that they live in and the ideas they embrace. Throughout their journey to achieve their goals, they learn new things while making both friends/enemies/and other people of interest.

Both series have many funny dialogues but at the same time have emotions, drama, and bits of violence. The battles that the two main protagonists stars in are also portrayed as being shounen, with the supernatural bits added to it.

Both series feature different settings but have a similar feeling to them. Additionally, there is also a prominent female character that aids the protagonists in various circumstances along the way, as well as other prominent supporting characters.

Both series also deal with other issues that includes politics, power, dominance, and events from the past.
one big adventure, with a lot of characters, the main characters is one very strong boy, and you will see one big mythology
They are both about a long journey to accomplish a certain goal. And both have long stroy arcs. And the characters in both anime have sad background stories.
-Both are similar era
-Both give off similar feelings
-Both involve magic and supernatural
-Both anime involves magic and supernatural
-Both anime involve main character(Aladdin & William) has powers and are strong/chosen one/special
-Both main character are stubborn, sort of similar personalities (Alibaba & William) & look similar
-Both revolves around Kings
-Both really good
