Both are based on Manga that are worth reading, especially if you like the anime adaptations. Both are must sees, and I can't imagine liking one but not the other. They are based on different historical themes, but they are both character driven with a bigger story that unravels as time goes on.
Magi is a little more serious and done a little better than
Seeing the first chapters of magi is a lot like me to Fairy tail, as the characters meet and know each other and the strong relationship of friendship between them, also the storyline and adventure but will have some differences, it's obvious!!

I consider these two the best represantives for the magic genre. I like the adventures , characters and the action of both of them. I prefer the world of magi beacuse of the only magic anime using the arabic a thousand and one night theme to their world.
But when it comes to Fairy Tale there is a lot more back story and/or side story with all the characters but as i said i consider these two the best magic series in anime.
Fairy Tail and Magi may as well be siblings. They're both set in a fantasy-like universe where magic users are a common sight to behold. The two series also include limitless adventures, interesting/unique character designs, bonds between friends, and numerous battles.
