So I felt the need to make this thread, since Sheba is becoming more and more one of my favorite characters in the Alma Torran arc, and one of the best female characters in Magi. Her evolution from the first time she was introduced, to what she is now is astonishing. She went from a creepy kid who's been brainwashed, to one of the most loyal followers of Solomon, and she will evolve again in the future(if indeed she is Gyokuen)
I gotta confess, I hated her when she was introduced.What she said and did wasn't acceptable for me.Even her eyes were empty
But when she was introduced properly to the other species, and felt that they were no different than humans,she started regretting her ways, especially after she felt responsible for the death of Momo's father.
And 5 years later, she became a beautiful young woman and a badass magician who fights for Solomon's ideals.She falls for him, although she also wants to be like him, which can be a bad thing, because she will only be disappointed when he rejects her love or he changes
I know that the arc is far from over, and that something will happen that will make her betray Solomon, but still I think she's one of the best characters in the series. So do you guys like her as a character?
I couldn't help myself not to post this awesome compilation of Sheba and Gyokuen's shots

I loved Sheba from the first time she was introduced. The thing that I didn't liked about her is that way of thinking she has towards the non-human creatures. Well, its only natural for her since she was thought wrong lessons in life. Now that she had already changed her mind and opened her heart for the non-human creatures, add the fact that she grew really well, my love for her grew stronger.
I can't say if she'll be my top favorite females of Magi, but she's definitely on the list Along with Arba, Yamu, Morgiana, Hakuei and Ren Gyokuen.
Today I learnt there are peolpe who don't like Sheba...
Why isn't the poll public? We have to know who is the soulless one to not like Sheba.
Ok I know that what I'm gonna say might be something that could be considered heretic, but Sheba is similar in a way to Mor. Let me explain how. First both were liberated by their benefactors. Mor was a slave, and Sheba was a tool used to power the Gunuds. Either way Mor was saved by Aladdin and Alibaba, and Sheba was saved by Solomon and co. Second they both feel gratitude and maybe love towards their benefactor, the latter I'm not sure of in Mor's case. And then there's the fact that both want to be stronger to help that person who helped them, and because of that things might end up badly. Sheba is completely fascinated with Solomon, which will only make her hate him more when she falls into depravity. And Mor wants to be stronger, and for that she considers being assimilated, although I'm not sure if a Fanalis could do that.But I'm not saying that their end will be similar. I don't see Mor falling into depravity at all.
Well I hope that my theory isn't too controversial.
Defiantly liking her, and I wanna know what happens to her in the future
I don't like her that much. I tend not to care much for characters like her to be honest
Her love story with Solomon has been going a bit too long for my likning too
I love her from the bottom of my heart. I just remember when she was introduced and I was like "who is this empty kid and why she has the moon staff?" And now knowing her better amd how much she has grown etc.. My love for her doesn't have words but only feelings! :'D
Lol I kinda miss the fanatic Sheba. She was funny sometimes. I'm sure we'll get to see her again. I just wonder if we'll get some of those creepy expressions that Gyokuen does. I remember in Magnostadt, and even before when she faced Hakuryuu, she creeped the hell out of me.
So I made the voting/voters on public. But no Bashing okay?... Let's make this an interesting thread for our lady Sheba
(yet even if this is an appreciation thread, there were some that doesn't really like her. Oh well, can't please everyone, ne?)
Now that Sheba has grown into a fine(?) and beautiful lady, I loved her even more. Though, maybe the thing that I didn't like that much in these past chapters is that her progress, also the plot progress, tends to be slowish at some point. But still, I think its necessary for Sheba's character development.
before she would become Gyokuen
Thanks for making the poll public. I was gonna ask but I forgot
I guess that some of us are bound to dislike Sheba, but if only they bothered to say why they dislike her.She's a good character overall, and I find her more likable than Arba for example.
Still I'm glad that someone even bothered to say that he doesn't like her, because it shows that they care even it's just a bit.

Yeah, I actually didn't know someone could not like her. XD
And I also like Sheba a bit more than Arba but I can't deny that I love Arba, she is very lovely.
she has been meh the last couple of chapters. I dislike how her entire character orbits around Solomon. At the moment she's nothing more than Aaddin's future mama and Solomon's waifu.
Yeah she's become rather dull lately, maybe it's all those hormones that makes her stick to Solomon even more. But I really can't wait for her to turn into Gyokuen, although the probability of this happeing is becoming slimmer every chapter. But God those expressions Gyokuen makes, imagine our lovely Sheba making the same.
Isn't it because the story is more focused on Solomon now? In the previous chapters her love for Solomon was used to develop her character, it's over. Now that they are a couple and all she can do nothing but support him in their situation.
