Hope they do the Sindria arc well. They BETTER do the Sinbad/Kougyoku bit dammit!

Praying they don't butcher the remainder of the show, but they probably will. About to watch this episode now, glad it sounds like they did it a lot better than last weeks. God damn as soon as Mor kicked the Black Djinn and seeing how poorly it was done(A still frame? This ain't the Fairy Tail anime ffs! AND they made her kick with the wrong leg!) I knew that whole episode was going to fail. Her kick was awesome in the manga.

If I hadnt read the manga id have rated this episode of the anime better but it was still done well just not as well as the manga (imho)

I wonder how they plan to continue follow the real arcs or go anime only or mix it? Or just follow and have another season to continue following the manga

Fairy Tail's animation sucks big time since the first episode.
Sindria is a light-hearted fun arc with some training. It's an introduction to Sinbad's generals and the new main character, Hakuryuu.


Which arc did you enjoy more?

I hope Sindria is better because the Sinbad gang is tons more interesting than Aladdin gang.

Don't spoil me too much but will Masrur have a good amount of screen time in Sindria arc? He's my favorite character so far, hope he gets some spotlight :D

Masrur won't get that much screen-time. The arc will focus on 2 other (interesting) generals, Sinbad, Kougyoku, and Hakuryuu. The arc is really fun, with some BAness from the generals, including Masrur.

This was the most beautiful episode in any anime I have ever watched, everything was beautiful about it and the conclusion between Alibaba and Cassim was beautiful, everyone knew how hard Cassim's life was but nobody knew the extent of it and this episode depicted it perfectly. The conclusion between the two was also perfect and it almost made me cry, the voice acting was beautiful and you could really feel the connection between the two.
Ahh, the ED part was also flawless and I wonder what Mariam said to Alibaba in his ear.
"I hate nice girls. If they so much as say hello, it stays on my mind. If they return my texts, my heart races. The day one calls me, I know I'll look at my call history and grin. But I know that's just them being nice. People who are nice to me are also nice to everyone else. I almost end up forgetting that...
Someone who's worked hard at being alone doesn't fall for the same trick twice. I'm a veteran at this, I'm the best there is when it comes to losing. That's why I'll always .. Hate nice girls."

I don't get the point with people watching an anime they don't enjoy... If an anime irritates me to the point where I can only be negative about each episode I watch I just drop it. Would be great if others would do the same so people like me don't have to read your stupid discussion full of negativity about a show we do enjoy.

If I cared for the manga I would read the manga. If some of you enjoy the manga so much that it's impossible to like the anime too, just stop watching the anime and go read the damn manga if you like it that much better.

That being said I really liked this episode, it was emotional and I thought especially Alibaba's VA did a great job. I loved the drama in it and the ending of the episode where all the souls retured to the rukh.

It's so we can use the "I've watched the whole series" excuse to justify bashing on a series and annoying people like you with our negativity.

I kid :-p, but if people really weren't enjoying it they would drop it, and I don't see a rule saying that discussion threads are for praising only, notice how it's mostly the manga readers complaining? people complain about every adaptation, and if you're going to complain about the complainers complaining, then you're going to have to post this on every sub-forum because no adaptations are perfect and people will always complain... complain complain. Most like the manga more, like me, but that's not going to stop me from watching the anime of one of my favourite manga. Oh and some VA just annoy certain people, like I can't deal with Kaji Yuki's screaming lol but that's just my opinion.

Oh how I wish I could say that up front to people in real life.
This, exactly. Actually, i might say it anyway.

Anyway, my feels are all up in this Anime. I didn't like Kassim, still kinda don't, but i still felt something when Alibaba was crying over his blackened body.
I'm glad this arc is finally over. Great conclusion too.

I didn't really like this episode, it felt way too forced and it was just too mainstream. That happy ending was kind of lame imo. It seems that there is quite a deep story in this show, hopefully the next arc will be more deep and thrilling.

I had no idea people were hating on this anime. I'm to understand the manga is much better, yes? Well, I haven't read it, but I probably will after the anime is over. I usually decide that a manga series and an anime series are different anyway since they're different formats, so it doesn't bother me if one is better than the other. I'm still really enjoying this anime for what it is. The animation leaves a little to be desired at some points, but I don't hate any of the characters in this anime and that means something with me, because I usually hate at least one. So imo they're doing something right.

Cried a few tears at the end of this episode. Glad Aladdin is back up and more badass. Miss Ugo though D:



I'm glad you enjoy the anime of Magi. I feel bad because of all the hating and ranting around in the forums. Many people who read the manga are just butt hurt because of minor changes, skipping scenes and animation quality. Just ignore them and keep on enjoying Magi anime. I do recommend to read the manga from the very beginning, when you have the time and interest, because it is awesome and explains different information about the magic and wonders in depth (stuff the anime tend to do very briefly). You can also spot small funny character interactions and character traits that are not shown in the anime. ^^

I had to stop a bit on minor changes..... Not gonna turn this thread into a battlefield since anime-only viewers are getting bothered, but the anime is one big mess from the changing of all those things you call "minor". Though good to hear that people are still enjoying the series.

@Kananipa
Good to see you're enjoying the anime, but if you're planning to read the manga, read it from the beginning to see why we are complaining that much.

That ending was just so nice to watch. It was just so sweet and touching at the same time.

Sin looks like a completely badass with his djinns and Morgiana's new outfit in the preview looks awesome.

Well, I really enjoyed that. I cried a little... or maybe that's my head cold making my eyes water. <_< ... >_> Yeah. But it really was a great scene with Alibaba and Kassim inside the Djinn. The whole thing with all the dead people visiting was a little overboard, but it definitely didn't ruin it for me. Gawd, Alibaba's sobbing nearly broke my heart. Most VA's when they act crying make me cringe.

I don't understand the hate for Alibaba. He's my favorite. o.o; Am I missing something?

Looking at the scene in the OP (I think? I usually skip both OP and ED) where everyone is feasting and Mor dances, Jubal is in there, so that's kind of weird. Is that actually canon, or is it just OP fantasy?

Snake coming out of the head's eye was super creepy. oAo Badass Sinbad & Co moves, though. Masrur = <3

Flawless victory. Yeah!

Seeing by the reactions of people, I'm glad I watched the anime before encountering the manga. I'm enjoying myself a lot with this. The manga must be something special.

Sorry, this was one of the few characters that I'm glad kicked the bucket. That annoying piece of scum Cassim overstayed his welcome far too long.

Sinbad totally made this episode watchable and entertaining.

Anyway, that shadow council seemed promising.

The ending was done beautifully and I really could connect with it because I had a dream similar to that when my mom came back but only visited me for a day til she was raised back up to heaven again. So seeing your loved one after they have passed for quite some time seriously is a euphoric moment.

and even though I dislike Kassim his death was done beautifully as well. Good episode overall with nice animation and music. Lovely~

The last few minutes were really sweet. Getting there was kind of a chore though.

So...is Judal being manipulated by that cult thing? Was those stills we saw his parents being killed or something?

Also, I guess if they are a cult kind of makes sense, but I really hate villains that spread darkness or evil for the sake of darkness or evil with no real motive.

Wow, just wow... RIP Kassim, you came around before you died. Perfect episode with a beautiful ending with everyone seeing their loved ones, it was nice. Sinbad and his friends are OP as hell, completely beheading that trouble maker. The Kassim and Alibaba fight/talk scene was completely perfect it was amazingly well done what a beautiful and sad scene. Mor in the end running to hug Aladdin and Alibaba was so cute, I love Mor! Either way, perfect episode!
