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. Alibaba is chosen by Aladdin (A Magi) to become a king. Through read more

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

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 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.
