And the journey ends....

Final chapter came out this week (Korean version at least) and I will say that I'll really miss this series. All these years of Magi adventures. In the final chapter, we got Morgania in a goregous dress as she, Alibaba, and her friends ends this series in happiness.

Goin to miss Magi ;_;

Great manga overall, but the last 10 chapters or so feel rushed. Dont get me wrong, its not as bad as bleach or anything, but magi has been building up this final fight since the start of this huge arc and it feels like it could have used at least 20-40 chapters more to have a complete ending. I dont even know why they had to bring David from 200 chapters ago to be the final villain, it doesnt make sense when you been putting so much exposure and foreshadowing on Sinbad. This ending is not up to the standard magi had throughout its run.

Anyway,I still find this chapter to be enjoyable individuall. Too bad, It doesnt clear out what will be happening to most characters. Will miss this series a lot.

Sad we didn't have some closure for the rest of the characters but Alibaba will always be Alibaba.

Really sad to see this go even though the last arc felt really rushed..
Hope they'll adapt this into a third season maybe in the future!

I really would have liked to see what happened to characters other than Alibaba and Morgiana. But while the ending felt too abrupt, it was still a good ending for a great series.

I haven't read much manga, but I loved Magi. (probably evident from my current avatar and signature)

I feel like this needed like 5 chapters to explain everything that happened in this chapter. They really crammed a lot in there!

But it was still satisfying and it seems like it ended on a good note. They're going to build a new future together and there's hope for the future. Alibaba and Morgiana got married and it seems like all is well.

I would have definitely liked this to be fleshed out though, but I really loved this last arc, I just think they ran out of time. I wish the editors would have allowed a few more chapters, it would have made the difference.

Still, this was a good end to an amazing series. Magi is one of my favorite shounens and imo, is a really great gem in its genre. I hope there's an anime one day that will adapt the rest of it and maybe flesh out the ending a little more.

Still I'm satisfied, I'm gonna miss Magi, it's an awesome series.

Overall 9/10 (could have been a 10 if the ending was a bit more fleshed out)

Cough Negativity aside....

Very well done manga, gonna miss the Trio espcially Alibaba hilarious quirks. Ending was heavilly summed up, last arc could have been better but altogether I enjoyed the adventure!

Hope to see the rest of it animated!

While I will always love the series, the final arc itself definitely wasn't the best one, and this final chapter definitely felt a bit rushed, could have been a bit longer, or maybe spread the content across one or two more chapters to really explain everything that happened. Will still miss all the characters though, and here's to good luck on the author's next series!!

Was a good series at the beginning indeed, until the author let herself go with all this extra future/present/past space stuff or whatever happened during the last couple of arcs.

Always kept Magi at a 10 during it was ongoing, and got some pretty good memories of the series, it had some great moments after all, and some awesome ground fights, especially the wars between countries. will end it with a 9.

Gonna admit, I loved everything but this final arc. It just felt... really weak in comparison to previous arcs. I guess it left a lot to be desired as well. Either way, I still loved the manga and its characters.

Drakon looked god damn handsome, man. A bit sad to see Sinbad up and disappear though, with his friends from his own journey left with a hole in their heart. Looks like they decided to move on though so good on them.

Yep, yep, you looked god damn beautiful Morg... but I still wanna see more of my Kougyoku, especially since it's the final chapter and all T_T Nice to see that they finally held the wedding though, even if it kinda was off-screen.

I have too much I wanna say but I'll just end it there.

Well.. I guess that's that

Liked the series for the most part but this final arc was just poor all-round. As for the final chapter itself it was... idk, okay I guess? Could've been worse but it still felt anticlimatic

I generally dislike battle shounens a lot but this was one of the few series of its kind that I actually enjoyed reading. A shame it had to end with a whimper but that doesn't seem to be a rarity for long-running series so I guess maybe that was to be expected

I'd still give it an 8/10 overall though for being consistently good for 282 chapters at least

An arc too far in my estimation. Everything after the timeskip was pretty poor IMO. At least Morgiana and Alibaba got together at the end though.

I'm sad that one of my favorite series has ended! I guess I won't be aging with Alibaba anymore lol, I started watching the anime when it came out when I was 17 and it was nice to have a character the same age as me as I got older :')

Like everyone said, this final arc was super rushed, particularly with the climax. I would have liked another mini arc post-time skip just to get a better feel of the new society Alibaba found himself in and to help conclude certain character arcs, or at least more chapters to flesh out the battle and conclusion ;A; With the last few chapters, it felt like there was too much skipping in-between chapters (I had to go back to the chapter before to make sure I didn't miss something). I'm not sure if the author just wanted to be done with the series or if the editors/publishers didn't allow more time, but the story definitely deserved better handling with the final arc. The ending itself was very good and well-fitted, it was just really abrupt. It would be amazing if we could get more anime seasons to expand on this arc though!

Not sure how the ending was decided but this is just mediocre. Didn't the editor inform Ohtaka how many chapters she had left to draw? The pacing was horrendous and, overall, the last arc was just a mess. Oh well.

It's kind of sad seeing magi end but it was dragging for me for a damn long time. The story lost its focus somewhere along the way and became too much about Hakuryu and David and Sinbad and destiny and Alma Toran, etc. when I wish it was more about the feuds between nations and adventures of the trio, characters, different metal vessals, wars, etc.

But either way the start of it was really fun. Sad but glad that it ended it was about time tbh.

Pretty dissatisfying ending. Used to love this manga, it was a 9/10 but it really went down especially in the final arc.
Final rating 7/10

Honestly, I'm gonna pretend that the last Arc didn't happen. I want to be able to give this atleast a 8/10 cause it was amazing. I used to ser this as a One Piece x HxH manga and loved It. It was amazing and delivered up until the late arc which was horrible. Seemed like that the mangaka just abandoned the manga.

So sad to see this amazing and beautiful Manga go out like this. Maybe if it got a Anime adaptation i would like it more. I'm sure of it

Even though I didn't enjoy reading the final arc,Magi has been one of my favorites series for years now.It was sad to see such a great story being rushed,Magi deserved better.
I definitly wished to know more about the other worlds and if they had their own Magi,King vessels and such.If Magi continued we might have been able to see a war of the worlds type of scenario.Too bad,so sad.

Thank you Magi for being consistently good for 300 chapters,You will be missed. T.T

Yeah, no kidding, it was a long journey. Now the author can focus on Magi Sinbad no Bouken; I hope the author can expand more on Sinbad and Serendine. Sinbad and Kougyoku Ren was a ship that permanently sunk. I am going to miss Magi.

The only thing, that has provoked my ire was how the author failed to ship Aladdin with his ideal woman. Come on, author, ship Aladdin with his ideal curvaceous woman, Myers is obviously the best candidate. Or even Mira Dianus Artemina would be just wonderful.

At the least, I am happy that alibaba and morgiana are finally together. Dumb question, did alibaba and morgiana ever kiss? Can't recall.

Now as for Arba, the fact that she stayed alive did shock me. Now, recalling chapter 248......don't tell me that the author plans to ship Arba with Hakuryuu. That kiss, during that battle, made me thought it was some plot device the author was planning to use, but I guess that kiss derived from the author's sense of forbidden romance.

On the side note, it did somewhat disappoint me that all the Power of the Kings (the djinn), and the system of Magi, got destroyed. I am not sure if Aladdin has lost Solomon's Wisdom. The way that occurred was somewhat cliche. However, Magic itself still exists so I guess everything is ok.

The ending in the sense that like a lot of shounen series the last arc was a bit rushed and crammed a lot in the last chapter and didn’t get a conclusion for many character just the main ones but I would loved to see what happened to other characters as well but aside from that it was great non the less. Now that I have finish reading it I’m on my quest of finding a colored version of the page of Morg in her dress it would be an awesome as a new background to have in my pc.

totally this


i feel like they terribly neglected judal after he got back to life, like that was supposed to be enough judal content until the end of the story... but it wasn't. tbh i was really excited to see a different judal after the magi system disappeared, like at least a poor fucking change of clothes like any other character. well, it's not like he played such a major role in the story, i just love that idiot too much
aside my judal rant i'll keep this manga close to my heart. it might've had terrible and rushed writing here and there (the ending,god;;) but it's still one of my fave stories as a whole

As much as I understand the ending is left open ended and for the reader to decide, it still feels rush. For example, what happened to the people of Alma Torran. Besides Arba and Aladdin's parents. There was still Falan from Sinbad no Bouken who got no mentioned, then there was also Itnan who died pretty early on. Did they reunite with their love ones from inside Ill Ilad. Where did the mother dragon go. So much questions unanswered.

The manga wasn't even that great to begin with, but the last arc was so boring and hard to read and the artwork even went to shit, Alibaba and Morgiana together felt too awkward and rushed, many characters got little to no closure.

The artwork is terrible, just compare it to Shokugeki no Souma or Yakusoku no Neverland lately and it's easy to see how bad the artwork fell off. There's many Shounen better than this.

I give this arc a 2/10 and the manga as a whole a 5/10, because it was still a pretty fun read a couple years ago, however I am glad it's finally over and I resisted adding this to my dropped list along with Naruto and Bleach.

Dayum, morgiana in dress is cute af, kinda pleasant looks considering we used to see the tomboy and strong side of her


RIP my fav grill kougyouku ship with neither aladdin nor alibaba, sigh


Story wise is already meh and feel rushed since last arc started like how typical shounen mangas ending but still ok-ish, overall magi was still a long pleasant journey. Good story (except last arc),good character dev, good fight scene. Gotta say im enjoy it much
