When I first read Magi, I assumed from the cover that it was of a cute little boy doing cute things, something to read to pass the time between weekly updates of other manga. However, Magi has been a charming surprise with the depth of its storyline and the efforts it puts into its setting. While it is, to some extent, a manga of a cute little boy doing cute things, Magi ambitiously tries to reach out on social issues such as politics and slavery while maintaining some humanity on every side of the issue.

*Note*: I watched the first season of Magi before I got into the manga. While the anime is very good, aside from the Balbadd arc, it is very different and much more rushed than the manga. I highly recommend both, but the manga is definitely the one I prefer.

Magi Labyrinth of Magic is something unique in the popular long-running shounen manga category alongside such renowned works like One Piece, Bleach, Naruto, and Fairy Tail. None of them come anywhere near being as intellectual as Magi is. Despite not being a psychological manga, Magi still manages to look at what is right or wrong and what read more

It is not often that you see an adventure shonen that is brave enough to go the extremes yet provide all the enjoyment which the fans of this genre demand. Magi by Shinobu Ohtaka, is easily one of the best currently ongoing shonen manga out there.

Combining the elements of Magic and characteristics of Monarchy, Shinobu creates what is a must read manga for all the fans who want something thought provoking at their plate. Magi gives the readers what other mainstream series have failed to do in last couple of years i.e. sense of purpose.

The two core problems faced by mainstream shonen series currently are read more

This is my first review (: here goes.

So i came across Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic on accident, or maybe fate haha.

I love the quirkyness of this manga, the use of gags and comedic input is always well timed, I dont really enjoy watching anime of manga i have read, but this i just had to see! The characters work well together, and the setting of the alternate world works well. I found the story all loops in together and pieces itself together later in the manga which i quite enjoy where you start in the dark and everything makes sense in time.

Definitely under rated! read more

Hunter x Hunter and Magi are similar in ways in which the main male protagonists has a set goal in mind. With that goal, they strive to accomplish it with any means and along the way encounter various obstacles - some that puts their lives at risk while others tests their abilities to their max potentials.

As with any fantasy setting goes, expect an adventure and fighting. There are are also various arcs for both manga involving many of the characters with twists and revelations.

There is also decent comedy present in both series mainly composing of the interactions between the main characters.  read more 
I'm surprised no one's recommended Fullmetal Alchemist yet. Magi and FMA are similar in that they both started out quite light-hearted and may fool you into thinking they're all about action and adventure. However, they're actually much deeper than that. There is great focus on the politics, the different sides scheming against each other. Character development is also given much thought in both series, and despite the big casts, both series manage to make most of them likable. 
It begins as an epic adventure with friends travelling, from island to island, from dungeon to dungeon, but soon it becomes a bigger issue that involve world domination, civil wars and abuse against the weak. 
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  read more 
Weekly Shounen Sunday fantasy action mangas with a weak minded main character but with something important to do that will change him. In both, battle are based on magical weapons (usually short swords) that bring power from an element or kind of magic. Several deaths, drama, and tints of comedy in the mix. 
Taking place in a fantasy world, Magi and Nanatsu no Taizai builds on their story with its colorful cast of characters. The main male protagonist from both series has similar personalities and often takes risks to help their friends. Other characters' roles becomes connected in a story that is dominated by conflicts revolving around their world. There is a good deal of shounen style battles in both series along with an unique arsenal of weapons that are adapted. As a series about adventure, I recommend anyone to check out both series to enjoy what the thrills it has to offer.
