So "wotonito" said epic word " something along the lines of "... Miraculously no one died." Wow the friend of Ali Baba, Kasim is truly died. Are you truly read this Manga. Its not plot-less like Fairy Tail, its all about morality. Yes its truly Shounen cliche with moral bullshit, If you don't like this read Gantz, Berserk, or any other seinen instead. Its more feels good than any other shounen bullshit out there. Face it this is shounen there's a moral obligations for Author to give something like morality, friendship, etc unto the story. And this Magi - Labyrinth of Magic is one of the good shounen with good plot not just battling and reup like any other shounen out there. And please dont be so annoying little child commenting without reading. I will not rate this until the story is End. And i believe the Author will gave me more great reading than any other shounen especially 3 bullshit shounen you little kid love.... :p

The storytelling and character development in this manga are closer to seinen than shounen imo. Anyone thinking that this manga is even close to trash like Fairy Tail, Bleach or Naruto (when every fight is a OHKO for the hero after cliche nakama speach & asspull power up) is beyond me.

Different from said manga, in this one, the protagonists actually lose, they're humble enough to realize their weakness, and actually try to stop and think about strategy instead of just rushing in like an idiot (aka. Natsu). The fight are more believable (at least the mangaka try to put some logic behind magic, weakness, reason to lose, etc.), unlike nakama shit from Fairy Fail. Even the supposedly cliche speech seem less cliche thanks to great artstyle effect and convincing character's motive (the last conversation between Alibaba and Kashim was well executed for example)

While this manga still carries some straits from typical shounen (friendship stuffs & perverted protagonist), it can still provide a deep plot with ambiguous & vulnerable characters that readers cannot simply tell if they're good or evil (basing on the latest chapters). Again, completely different from typical shounen where villains appear one after another (most are just want to destroy the world for no freaking reason) just to get trashed by the main character after bullshit power up and cliche speech.

A definitely recommended read.

This story feels kind of like Fairy Tail to me. By that I mean that it just lacks suspense, hardly anything ends badly. Every single fight ends with something along the lines of "... Miraculously no one died." Like, more people die in this story (Either in flashbacks or otherwise unimportant characters) than Fairy Tail (one random dude no one cared about) so it does have a tiny amount of suspense, but that's it. I have actually started to HOPE for the antagonists to win just because I'm getting annoyed at everything being A.O.K. at the end. Oh, Mr. Antagonist is about to die? SAVE HIS ASS! Freaking annoying.

This is a great series, I can't wait to read more. One thing I noticed is that some of the events seems as if the manga is based off a video game, which is a little disconcerting as it isn't really. Of course, that just means that any future games of this series would be easy to make and similarly entertaining.

I like that each of the characters have a chance to grow and adapt, and the reader can empathise with them. I also like that it is about overcoming 'evil' in the world, and being a good person, which is heartwarming in its simplicity. I definitely recommend checking it out, even just a few chapters, it's great.

Last arc?

Wonderful, solid read. Last arc seems a bit forced though, the flow from before seems to have been lost a bit, and so is my interest. Nevertheless, definitely worth reading if you are looking for a quality shounen.

Action-adventure shonen done very well. Good action, good art, interesting plot line. This is definitely worth giving a try, even if you are not a fan of the genre. The only problem I have is that the comedic parts are slightly lacking.

I prefer to read over 100 chapters before rating a series, so I'll abstain from that, but I believe I've read enough of the series to give it an accurate write up.

This is a good series. It's one of those Action/Adventure Shounen that does a great job of immersing the reader into it's fictional universe, much like Hunter X Hunter or One Piece is able to do. It has the theme of the Arabian 1001 and nights(Aladin/Arabian Mythology) The overarching plot is yet to be fully developed and there is still quite a bit of mystery left to it. With magic, magical creatures, special weapons and unique fighting styles all included. It's not one of the shounen that is centered around 1 on 1 fights, whereby who is stronger than who becomes a big deal. However the fight scenes are plenty exciting and very difficult to get bored of. It has some very likable characters, and to this day is the only Shounen manga I've read where my favorite character is a female(yay Morigann). Aladin(the main character) is pretty lovable, and I'm always happy when the main character isn't headstrong idiot(Naruto, Luffy). So far, I don't really don't have any complaints, the character development is solid, the art is nice, and the dialogue is well done. This mango won't hook you as strong as some other manga might, but it's a consistently very good read. I just wish the scanlators would scanlate faster.

This is one of the few shonen manga I've started recently that actually kept me reading. It's a great mix of adventure and action, and there are enough mysteries and dramatic happenings in the background to keep the plot going and keep the readers' intrigue. I'm looking forward to see more character development and growth in the coming arc.

The characters are likeable, and the story is easy to follow. Great clean quality scans and it has that grand epic feel to it due to the way the authors way of weaving a huge landscape.

as of now, with its unusual charm, magi is the strong contender against the now-very-powerful TWGOK (both serialized at the same magazine). i am eager to wait until the scanlation catch up to the last chapter. to see if magi successfully polished its charm further, just like its sister.

promising! very promising!
