    One of the lowest quality anime this season
    This series had both bland characters and story. Doesnt have much to do with the actual stories these characters are based on. Tons of fan service. Extremely cliche ending to the series. i would not recommend to anyone.

    New Favorite Anime!!
    I thought that Magi was the most awesome shonen anime I have ever seen! It is thrilled with action and comedy all at once. The real reason why I started watching this anime was because the main character's name was Aladdin and I loved the Disney movie and I always thought he was cute, so I started being obsessed with him and I found an anime with him in it! But, I never expected him to be a little ...

    Mixed Feelings About Magi
    For me personally, Magi seemed to have a lot going for it but in the end failed to deliver. I'll say right up front I have only completed the first story arc (up to episode 17). It has some interesting characters but over and over again I feel like every major scene is over dramatic.

    Alibaba is so over dramatic I just find myself getting irritated every time he feels like making an impassioned ...

  • I Was Set On Watching This Anime Till The End
    More often than not, if I start an anime I am going to finish it because I feel some sort of inner obligation. Magi was not like that, I was excited to see each episode. The idea behind the entire anime is great and still has much to be expanded upon.

    In all honesty my only disappointment so far is that the season ended with lots of unanswered questions, but I suppose that is a way to keep ...

    Absolutely wonderful!
    This anime came completely out of the blue. It's actually the main reason I ended up getting a Crunchyroll subscription ^_^ Just so that I'd be able to see what would happen next as it happened. The characters are extremely well-written. Colorful personalities and a lot of charm to them all. Definitely an amazing balance of both comedy and drama. The story is also just as great. I absolutely love ...

    Really well written and animated!
    Magi is one of the most well-written anime's that I've watched. It is highly stylized and flows really well from episode to episode. I hope that there is a second season to this gem. The character design was well executed and the animation was fluid.

    Simply Amazing Work of Art
    I honestly don't think there has been one point in this anime that has let me down. All of the characters have excellent character development. The action is well balanced with each personal relationship as well. This is easily a must for anyone who watches anime.

    Desperately wanted to love it, but I didn't
    Perhaps I set my hopes too high. Not being a manga reader I could only go by the descriptions and the beloved tales on which the manga is loosely based. I wanted it to be as fantastical and fanciful as the stories my mom told and read to me as a child. I wanted it to capture my imagination as those old movies from the 50s. It did not. The artwork is exceptional. It's a beautiful anime. The ...

    Incredible story line - must see!!
    At first I was a bit turned off by the fact that it took a middle eastern design as it felt weird calling it anime but I'm glad I put aside my initial discouragement to watch this incredibly captivating and graphically pleasing show.

    This is a must see for anyone into Triumph over evil, Morel Judgement, Magic, Blood and Gore, Sword play, and hot anime chicks.

    Anyone who watches this and ...

  • Excellent Series. You really need to watch.
    I don't think that there is anything bad I can say about Magi. All of the plot elements are here and nicely rounded up by the end. There really aren't any loose strings or anything. In essence, it is a one hundred percent self contained anime.

    The character development is excellent. We see each one of them throw off the chains of their past and join to gather to fight for the new world they ...
