This manga is, believe it or not, pretty deep.

It really makes you stop and think about the way the world works, and how various governments operate. A lot of what is happening in the manga is very real--- (they happen in real life too through another form). Nothing is black and white in the manga. The creepy black-robed people seem to have a "legitimate" reason for doing horrible things, and the good guys seem to have hidden agendas as well. The main characters are good people, but we see negative sides of naivete and blind justice in Alibaba. The only character who seems to be completely pure would be Aladdin, and even he sometimes shows a darker expression.

I love the different rulers/kings presented:
Sinbad- The king everyone loves, but may have gone off to the dark side (a bit)

Magnoette (not even gonna bother to spell his name correctly)- A warped version of Hitler; albeit a controversially "good" one.

Kou Empire ruler- (a reflection of communism and ancient China.) Two strange mix but somehow it worked

The female magi- She would invade other countries to protect her own. Loved by her citizens. (kinda reminds me personally of USA huh)

And Alibaba- The one who looks to the weak and tries to help everyone out. While he obviously may SEEM to be the best king of all, he has a lot of flaws that pull him down to every other king's level.

Either way, I just LOVE how much this manga makes me think about controversial things I normally wouldn't bat an eye about.

The only exception to the black-white world of villains and heroes seem to be the Kou Empress.. Honestly, she's a tad TOO cray cray....purely twisted might be a better description.
Further more, this manga provides some of the funniest gags ever, and some of them come at such a random time that it'll make you go "WTF??" Oh and dear lord, don't forget the hilarious expressions and troll faces (yes legit troll faces) in this manga. Ha ha ha ha. Good times.

A "downside" is that recently the manga has been nearing its climax, so not as much humor is shown as before...Everything is intense and stuff.......... I miss all the gags that targeted poor ol' Alibaba.... And Aladdin's victims...

I feel pity for Fairy Tail...

Hahaha... somehow, I sense this series reviews become a battle between shounen manga... Well, thanks to the one who brings Fairy Tail in his/her comment (aka. *****hito) - see, it's dangerous to compare 'obviously' different quality of manga in the front of the fan (including me)...

Magi is undoubtedly good as for me, and I won't add more "useless" comment for the awesomeness of Magi. But, I feel I must join the review about the shounen manga...

May some readers dont like "childish" story about overwhelmed character n nakama-thing in some popular manga out there, but hey... shounen is mostly talking about that. They mainly teach us about "hard work, friendship, and victory", if you dont like that, you can read newspaper or economic magazine (just like my dad), and of course another manga, like seinen.

As for me, what's most important in shounen manga (and other genre) is the plot (and its twist). The plot should not random and predictable, that's the basic... It's okay to be overpowered (even Aladdin and Yunan maybe overpowered too), but it must not be shortcut-ed (aka. sudden power ups)... or it will lose its "hard work" components. I don't find it "much" in One Piece and Naruto, but One Piece n Naruto covered it with a great depth plot. In opposite, as for Fairy Tail, ahem... maybe the author find it's difficult to logic its power up (since the power is too random), and the plot is sadly random too (and that's why I dropped it for now). Truly, this is nice forum indeed...

this is my favourite manga of all time plus a few others but still. it broadened my horizon of manga when i read it. i love all the characters from magi and my fav character is pisti. the drawings are wonderful and it just gives me the feeling that this is the manga i've been looking for my entire life. i love it.i believe that this manga is way better than the top 4 manga's of the world (thats what i call it. one piece, naruto, bleach and fairy tail and yes fairy tails up there for those who didnt know) the story isnt too dark which is great. ahh... this will always be my favourite manga probably.

Great series. Starts a bit slow but it really picks up after a few volumes. Also don't judge the manga based on the awful anime adaptation. The anime made changes for the worse and hasn't done the manga justice.

Certainly not bad, but suffers from an overabundance of being too average in design, execution, characters, storylines, even powers. It's a shounen manga but Aladdin-flavoured with very few surprises for me. Again, it's definitely not bad, I've enjoyed reading it but it's starting to feel like a drag at chapter 100, so I'm taking a break from it.

A slow start, but it did get a lot better. What made Magi good was it's uniqueness. Despite being a Shounen, it tried to pick up a few darker and more mature themes. Sadly, it's only been going downhill lately. Giving into the temptation of using weak plot devices and showing the typical shounen flaws. (Weak, stereotypical villains; flat side characters and the generic good and evil...)

I can only hope the author reconsiders his change in style. I don't think there's any need for a second FT.

Magi is a diamond in the fog. Lately the shounen genre has been getting BS from everybody, all because of mainstream shounen like OP, FT,Naruto, et cetra(I'm not saying they're bad) Magi Is just like FMA-type shounen its in a league of its own:
The pacing is good, and all the characters are all amazing
