Whoa, seeing a pissed off Aladdin is quite something. Now's probably not a good idea to get in his way. It's also good to see some of the characters like Alibaba, Sinbad, etc make their appearances in this chapter again. It's been awhile..

Very nice chapter! It really was good to see some of the old characters back, and I just adore the friendship between Aladdin, Alibaba and Morgiana.

I can't wait to see what's next!

Awww I like how Alibaba and Mor rush to Aladdin's side after he finished telling Alma Toran's tale.

Seems like Aladdin is asking for a cease fire between nations until the common enemy Al Thaman is defeated.

Hope Hakuryuu shows up in the next few weeks what the hell are him and Judal planning? I've been wondering this for almost a year.

I wonder if Sin, Kouen and Muu will reach the same decision or everyone will have a different plan. Sin is already fighting Al-Thamen, and Kouen is intending to do so at some point after he accomplishes building that nest (probably referring to all of his subjects, the good and the bad, that he will turn into a weapon against Al-Thamen). This chapter also contained more foreshadowing regarding the mysterious nature of Yunan, who, according to Sinbad, was the one who caused dungeons to appear in the current era. In the past, did every magi have more than one king candidate like Judar and Scheherazade has/had? I'm assuming that the seven sea alliance kings might've been approached by Yunan.

What's with Sinbad addressing Solomon and having his name between quatation marks (checked manga kansou and the Japanese version had the same thing)? Did the Alma Toran story give him some sort of an inspiration? Also, glad to see more of Seishuu; I really came to like him after reading vol 22 omake. I would love to see more interaction between him and Seishun, whether in the manga or one of the omakes/papers.

And man, we didn't get to have a good view of Masrur :(

O.O Wow, Friendship between Aladdin, Morgiana and Alibaba is so Nice. really like it. Nothing can break this friendship. And Alibaba concluded entire Alma Torran Arc to his wonders. Aladdin is all feelings that Sheba and Solomon and their Followers wanted their Kingdom to be.

Now political fighting about Aladdin start at the hole new level..at least that is what I think.
Sinbad is pretty shocked I see. first time ever seen him so Speechless.

....Oh man....This can get seriously ugly.

Cannot wait to see decisions of all 3 leaders.Sinbad is smiling, and when he's smiling things are bad.Kouen on other hand looks pissed off, no idea what he's thinking now.
Can't wait to see next chap, things might get crazy!

Tbh, I found the flashback quite boring compared to the other arcs. I'm glad it's finished.

So we're back? Don't know why, but the interaction between Aladdin, Morgiana and Alibaba seemed forced. Maybe it's just because I haven't seen them for all this time.

Well, it's gonna take a bit to get used all these characters after the really enjoyable flashback.

I like a good backstory as much as the next guy but tbh I also found it rather dull.

Woo! We're back! It's great that Morg and Alibaba immediately think of Aladdin.
But I'm mad at myself for having even a smidgen of faith in all of those idiots. They aren't asking for all of the nations to be at peace, it's only temporary. I should have known, though, that those idiots would argue about stupid things. If I saw something like they just saw, I'd be stunned silent and I'd realize that political boundaries aren't the most important thing right now! Gosh darnit.

My god their faces at the end , hope they reach the same goal somehow since its retarded to fight at this point while Al-Thamen is almost attacking
and wow mad Aladdin is mad lmao didnt expect that from him hahaha and best scene is Alibaba and Morgiana reaching for Aladdin <3
and even if the Alma Torran arc wasn't as exciting as the others as some of you suggest , it is very necessary to happen sooner or later so we know the past

I agree. I get it that it was necessary for the plot and I know its importance but the cat is that it took away a lot of my interest. This chapter was finally interesting.

Even with those words of Aladdin, I still don't think they will have a ceasefire. We will probably get another Alma Toran with the Al Thamen still there.

Yay! Back to the present.
The whole flashback was ok...

But I'm glad they're finally back! Really liked this chapter.
Awwh, it was too cute seeing the trio again. Mor, Alibaba, and Aladdin <3
Can't wait to see what's up next~

I wonder if Sinbad just has similar enough qualities to have really identified with Solomon and the turns of his story, or there's something more to it.

I'm glad the flah back was over, but disappointed on how fast paced it turned. But I'm happy to see Alibaba there again.

That was one long flashback. But now we know the mysteries of the past and the story becomes more straightforward.

I can understand what you all mean. That took over 20 chapters and reading all of that weekly can become real tiring. But I just binge-read all of it and it was incredible. Trust me, it's a lot better when you go through all that backstory in one go.
