I recently got hooked on Magi after a friend recommended it to me. After I watched Blue Exorcist I have lost a little faith in current anime. So I am a little skeptical of Magi and the others I am watching. What do you guys think of the series so far? Plenty of action or too little? Is the creator going in a good direction so far or has it taken a turn for the worst? How long do you think it will run? Voice actors good or sloppy?

From what I have seen it looks like I can have faith in anime's future. It has a great story concept and seems to be very well rounded. I just want to get some other input!

Magi is really good. I started reading the manga before the anime started, and I really like what's happening! It gets so much better during the Balbadd arc and after. I think the voice actors are doing a really good job, I especially like Aladdin's. ^^ I'm hoping this series will go on for at least 50 episodes. xD There is a lot of material to cover still, so it would be a shame to stop it at 24 or so.

Yea its a really entertaining show. It will get much more developed around fighting from episode 13+, but it still keeps the humour in the anime.

it's decent, but I can't stand Aladdin half the time, so I just stopped watching it.

Compared to the manga, which has perfect pacing unlike the first three episodes and I hate how they didn't show Leila in the first episode, the anime falls flat

Not excited about the choice of names but i might give it a try.

Pass (for now) I have read the manga, and watched the anime. It's pretty good, it follows the story line well, but it misses the details, (which is why people should read the manga to give them more info). : )

Woah. I guess I gotta start reading the manga if it covers that much.
OT: Magi is good and Ao Exo anime was bad imo.

I'll give it a pass, so far it's pretty good, I'm choosing to not follow the manga until the show is over whenever that is

I think it did a great job. I didn't read the manga beforehand, so I didn't really have any criticism of the pacing compared to the manga. I bet if anyone watched the anime without reading the manga (like myself) they would find the pacing to be very balanced...though even if I say that, I did look back through a couple chapters, and yes, the anime did skip over quite a few content. It's not overly important material, just mostly extra dialogue or humor, but it's still pretty meaningful for the characters.

Overall, I give it a Super pass! It's entertaining, every episode feels short as hell (A very good thing!), every episode leaves me wanting for more, every character is fairly layered, everyone has dark secrets, and the action and animation are very well-done.

Definitely pass for now with the characters although on the story side, not 100% sure. It's worth the watch so far even though I heard the anime series derives from the manga (ex. pilot episode). Other than that, it's an enjoyable watch imo.
