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.

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

First of all I didn't expect anything from this anime. As I read the description I thought " not another anime, show, movie, about fair tales... who wants to see this .... " But due to the lack of any good anime and thanks to a nice review I've read, I thought I will give it a try.

So I got hooked right away.

After the first minutes I wasn't sure yet if it was a childish anime or if it was made for a broader audience. After watching 12 epsiodes I can tell you its for a broader audience, so no worries!

So, you believe in magic? Whether that answer is a yes or no, Magi sets itself as an unique series of a classical adventure for anime fans. It's a wonderful experience and there are many ways in which Magi portrays its adventures with its cast of characters. Now, get ready because Magi might just be something to refresh your weekend with its old school themes and premise.

Magi (also known as Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic as its full title) is a manga written by Shinobu Ohtaka. The series takes place in an universe that has has desert artwork scattered all around. As such, its theme 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.

These two Anime are very similar. They are both set in a magical world where various kingdoms are battling for supremacy. Additionally powerful relics are at the centre of each story. They both have somewhat engaging characters but could do a bit better.
