THIS IS A MANGA ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS ANYTHING BEYOND THIS CHAPTER.
----------------------------------------
I was under the impression people were born Magi's but I see now anyone who acquires the dungeons item is possibly able to become a candidate.

I really love this manga, I wish there was more scanlated! I have the raws, but I can't understand everything.

Now now don't be so cynical. This manga has shown none of the signs of falling from grace like Fairy Tail has.

Loved how her first act was to tease the painfully shy djinn, it so perfectly fit her domain ;)

I wonder what the ratio of good djinn/magi to bad is? And if they'll have to fight/kill each other or if they'll just need to convince each other/some supreme being in order to become king?

So that means that Alibaba also became a Magi.

Everyone must have read the mistranslated scans I did. At first I was confused because I was under the impression that Maji CHOOSE the candidates instead of BEING the candidates. Turns out the start of the next chapter has a editor's note saying that Magi are indeed the selectors, which means Alibaba is probably Aladdin's selection for king. I believe that is right? If so, is is it possible to select more than one candidate? After all, Judal is shown trying to convince Hakuei's brother to go in to the dungeon, of which clearing it seems to make one eligible for candidacy.

Yeah so many miss translations. It is as you said though, basically a Magi's job is to select a candidate for a king to rule the country known as a king vessel. It not only limited to one king Candidate. The magi has the authority to select several candidates if he/she wanted. Their is alot more to this though that has not been explained in full detail yet. But mainly that is the basic principles of it.

Yeah, thanks. I wanted to make sure I got it right before continuing on. I got to wonder if Morgiana will become a candidate. Well, only one way to find out!

I remember making the same assumption (the one about Magi and their candidates) back then due to the questionable translations. Looking back at it now, it made so little sense contextually haha.

On a similar note; it feels so refreshing to see the reactions of someone who's new to the series and has just begun reading it. Please keep it up, buddy.

Yeah, I will. And, that is indeed one of the reasons why I am doing these posts. I know from experience how fun it can be to reading someone elses impression of a manga or anime for the first time. Figured it wouldn't hurt to share that with other people.

Okay so they were mistranslations, thought maybe the manga was actually extremely different and you could ascend to being a magi for a second . . . So magi select king candidates right? Okay . . . So it's the same, was just mistranslated for the longest time.

Emm..Are you insane? This ain't necroposting. This ain't the general forum. You never necropost chapters and episodes because a discussion about them comes when you renew your list. Learn your shit noob.
