What's you favorite arc(s)?
Mine would be the first Dungeon Arc and Sindria Arc. The dungeon arc for me had successfully shown Magi as an adventure manga. at first I thought that Magi will be full of Dungeon diving after this arc had finished, only to realize there's more about Magi. Plus this Arc made me become enthusiastic about the 1001/Arabian Nights. The Sindria Arc on the other hand, I just love the peacefulness, the fun and the introduction of the Eight Generals
Edit: I have separated the War Arc and named the other as Father Arc because the War Arc revolves about Reim and Magnostadt war, and then the Father arc should involve the fight between Aladdin and his group vs/ the black djinns, the Medium and Al Thamen.

I have a hard time saying, because I feel like I've always liked this manga equally from start to finish, with each arc presenting at least one aspect that was simply amazing in some way. I'm one of the people that enjoys that political undertones (and overtones) in this manga, which is something I liked about Balbadd, and something that I LOVE about Magnostadt. So I suppose I can say that's one of the many reasons that Magnostadt, in my opinion, represents the best this manga has to offer and continues to up the ante by escalating things beyond comprehension. It made me upset when I saw people criticizing it for whatever reason because they just wanted to go back to Alibaba or Mor, but I think this arc has been awesome ever since we began getting hints at the nature of what Magnostadt really was.
Ohtaka has proven to be an amazing mangaka since the very beginning, so it's a bit of a challenge to say what's my favorite, but personally I'm highly enjoying this current father arc and it's quickly becoming the best in my opinion With so many unexpected twists and turns (after all, who would of guest that a war arc would turn into the a battle to stop the destruction of mankind and it's home), Ohtaka really leaves the reader wanting more. I hope future arcs are as skillfully developed as this one.
I also really enjoyed the Zagan arc only because it showed a side of Hakuryuu that made me adore him so much. I still do even after his 180 degree change in personality and I really miss him ;;
Hogwarts arc for me.
Everything I said back in August still stands now that the arc is done. Magnostadt was epic start to finish and even though I got nervous towards the end when things escalated towards an endgame fight, it turned out very good.
I'll be including the Alibaba's Love arc, since it actually looks like a mini-arc. But I won't be adding up the current 2nd Balbadd arc since it hasn't finished yet
dungeon arc : hooked me instantly that time , found something new and refreshing
balbadd arc : a great example of politics and shonen brilliantly mixed together and at the same time patient enough to introduce future players and creepy villains properly
zagan arc , pirate arc : had some epic moments and very good setting for the awesomeness that's coming next
magnosthtadt arc : one of the most well structured and balanced arcs in recent times .. loved this arc ... easily my favorite
overall just an excellent piece of work by ohtaka
This poll is hardly a good sample of magi fans with only 17 people, but it's clear from at least us around here that the political arcs are the best. The most happened though in Balbadd and Magnostadt, but the politics were what made them good so it's good to see that people are fans of that. I have one issue though and that's the separation of Magnostadt, war, and father. This was all part of one amazing arc that simply spiraled out of control into something involving the whole world, but I would consider it all Magnostadt arc.
And Aum Madaura deserves an honorable mention because of how it ended, I'll never forget what Hakuryuu did there. Both of the things he did.

It seems like, for me, the whole arc started when Aladdin started studying in Magnostadt right? Then there goes the issue of about the 5th Level District that was somewhat had gotten neglected when the arc went on its peak, the part when they knew who the real enemy was (the Medium). The war, on the otherhand, had only started when Mogamett refuse Scheherazade's offer. It had only put on a short stop right after Aladdin revealed his true identity. Because of these three events in the whole arc, it seems like there were things that had gotten neglected and forgotten as the arc progresses...
But I'll be renaming the choices so that it won't do anymore confusion

Oh, didn't notice you changed the poll those options are good. I was just making an observation on how I viewed the arc though, not trying to criticize anyone =p And I agree that this next arc is going to probably be even better, especially after these last bombshells.....
I like the Madly in Love arc xD Alibaba is adorable ~
I also like the Magnostadt Arc
My very fav was Balbadd arc ^^ I could meet Alibaba much better in that arc plus it was really interesting & amazing :33
