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

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

Arabic setting and magic? This, must be good.
Well, close enough.

The story follows the adventures of Aladdin. He is pushing the storyline in a pace, that I didn't find myself confused with the plot. From the beginning, I felt that Magi was built on a "solid base". Later on you get introduced, to a lot of new characters. Most of them seem a lot more interesting than Aladdin.

I didn't noticed a filler episode, so you will get something new in each one. The format is based on shounen, you will get a lot of - friendship, morale, good/bad, black/white,...

Alibaba envisions the shounen stereotypes and gets read more

Anime: Hunter x Hunter (2011)
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.

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.

Anime: Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka
Similarity is the system of dungeons and wealth flowing from it.
Also for completing a dungeon hero's strength increases (in the "Magi": by getting the genie, and in "Dungeon than Deai ... " by increasing stats)
The idea of world is similar, because people find the dungeon for the great earnings and know of dangerous this place.
