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

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

This is my first review ever, so don't expect something big. Oh well, let's go...

"The mysteries hidden in the unknown world, uncountable, meetings and partings, the ultimate treasure that grants one's every wish..."
You can find this quote in almost every book about 'Aladdin and the Magic Lamp' or 'Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves'. Magi - Labyrinth of Magic is just another story about hidden treasures, but it's not just ordinary tale. The thing that fascinates me the most in this manga is that the mangaka mixed up popular characters from popular tales - Aladdin, Alibaba, even Sinbad and Ja'far.
