    Can hardly be considered Magi.
    Do Not Watch This Show If You Are A Loyal Fan Of The Manga.

    If you do not read manga, then coming into this show I think you will enjoy it. But, as a fan who read the manga first, this adaptation has disappointed me to no end. In some cases the show becomes so far from the manga it's almost unrecognizable. I'm giving the show 2 stars as overall the anime is well made, but the glaring ...

  • Love this show, One of the best!
    One of the best anime I've seen. Truly amazing progression, this show is very easy to understand and there's hardly any areas with plot holes. This show can be very funny, action packed, and dramatic. It has a very unique style of its own to just the feeling when you watch it is different from others! I really enjoy it and I know you would too. I recommend this to anyone who likes anime.

    awesome story and great animation!
    I love this anime! Its a great mix between my country story (ألف ليلة و ليلة) Thousand nights and a night book with Japanese touch.

    Its kind of funny though that the Arabic writing in the anime is totally wrong and have no meaning. for example: (خ خ س ح ج ث) this was written on a paper that Alibaba was reading and its just some random letters with space between each of them that makes no ...

  • Engaging, Deep, Unexpected
    I tried this anime with little hope that I would like it. Surprisingly it drew me in before the first episode had even finished! The characters gain a lot of depth as the series progresses, they have what feels like real problems, and are actively trying to solve them. I have enjoyed this anime so much I will HAVE to buy the manga!

  • Imaginative and Exciting
    I am always looking for something that takes you on a ride through imaginative imagery, and this series is original and thrilling. Well developed and likable characters with a great story leaves you wanting to watch the next episode to find out what will happen next. I give this series an A+ for creativity, imagination, and story. We need more creative series like this.

    Magi: Amazing but with loads of filler
    Magi, while not my favorite anime, is near the top in regards to action. However, my greatest concern with magi is all of the filler episodes that, while having some action, do not compete with the level of action in Attack on Titan or Sword Art Online.

    could've been much better
    good characters and character development. good action. you would think that these attributes together already make a great anime, but sadly, magi isn't that.

    the story itself is just too weak, and i couldnt last past the second arc.

    [spoilers] for example, the valiant queen of the koug kingdom was betrayed by her evil army general. sounds interesting. but when he commands the army to ...

    Amazing, my 2nd favorite.
    Out of all the anime that i'm watching this one is the second best, it can be funny/serious/action and it's just enjoyable, I recommend this to just about anyone. Magi is going to be in my top 10 anime of all time followed by log horizon. I don't think you need a certain age to like this anime so go watch it :)

    (People who dislike it because they either didn't give it a chance or they are angry ...

  • great little take on the 1001 nights universe
    characters from the 1001 nights stories, aladdin alibaba sherezade, simbad djinns mystical monsters, magic its great.

    The first season is somewhat better than the second, with better pacing and more world building, the second chooses to go in a different route, but by that time you'll be so invested in the characters you'll stay with it till the end. hope there is a third season because as ...

  • What an amazing show, not what you might expect initially
    It starts off as an adventure type show, but after the first 5-10 episodes, it suddenly kicks up a gear and includes super bad and cool villains, politics, kingdoms and alliances (but not in a boring american tv based way), and lot more magic and creativity than what you may have expected. Lots of original and fresh concepts.

    My favourite being the combination of Alibaba, Aladdin and Sinbad ...
