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

Magi is an anime that you've most likely seen before a million times unless you haven't seen anything in the medium. We have the family of tropes here! Everything from characters taking five minutes preparing a single punch only at the end to scream a ludicrous nickname such as "Rebel Power Punch" while the opponent stands still blinking at him to the power of friendship making everything better because friendship powers.

Magi does all of these overused tropes quite well. For a fan of action centered anime, it is a fun watch. But there're two major things that bothered me. The obvious one is the 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

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.
