Synopsis

Fourteen years ago, mysterious buildings called "Dungeons" started to rise in various places around the world. Within these dungeons, powerful beings called djinns rule over. When a person successfully conquers the dungeon, the djinn offers their immense strength in the form of Metal Vessels, recognizing him or her as a worthy king candidate. Adventurers from many empires and kingdoms venture into the dungeons in search of their bountiful treasures and the power of djinns. However, to travel through them is not an easy task, and only Magi—legendary magicians who choose kings and develop countries—can guide people through.

After being trapped in a room for most of his life, a young Magi named Aladdin finally sets out on a journey to explore the world along with his friend, a djinn named Ugo, who he can summon from his flute. Through a series of fateful encounters, Aladdin meets new various friends and allies, and together they begin an adventure that will change the fate of the world.

Arguably no genre in anime suffers more from an ill-fated combination of cliche reliance and an elementary premise than the action shounen genre. Whilst it is not inherently negative for such a show to skilfully execute well-trodden territory, for which there are plenty of shounen that do, Ohtaka’s “Magi”, true to its adventurous spirit, treads well beyond the boundaries of its genre without ever losing the heart-racing excitement that all shounen fans yearn deeply for.

An allusion to the Middle Eastern folk tales of “One Thousand and One Nights”, the world of Magi is unlike any we’ve seen that neither draws its main inspiration from the read more

It's frustrating when a series can be consistently good for 250 chapters goes to horse poop in the last third/quarter. How can such a beloved work, with an interesting fantasy world, with interesting characters, on top of it being shounen, drop the ball as much as Magi did? I'll tell you why, I'm gonna blame a character that has no reason to be a staple in Magi when hes a staple in his own damn Manga. No doubt the weakest link in this whole latter third of Magi is Sinbad, who has some contrived reasons for creating conflict and has really disengaging dialogue to read. read more

I have been reading this manga for 8 whole years and it is my favourite manga since then but still as a devoted fan I can't be more honest when I say it has let me down.
First, the story is the base structure that makes Magi unique, seeing as it benefits from its inspiration, the Arabian Nights stories. The world Ohtaka created is marvelous, it is incredibly complex and you must pay great attention to fully understand it. The art helps on this aspect, there are panels in this manga with incredibly detailed artwork which gives the environment the arabesque feeling borrowed from original source. read more

So i was scrolling through netflix, trying to find some anime and i came across Sinbad no boku which was really good, but needed more. I then found out it was only a prequel so i watched Magi the labyrinth of magic AND MY GOD is this good! The openings are amazing, the soundtrack is so good, the story at first is easy to follow and doesn't really become that confusing and the characters are great. When i finished season one and two of the anime i read the manga which was also amazing. In general i thought Magi was easy to binge and read, read more
