That is very interesting but it also confused me a bit...... so he has a special mission but then again he said that he can't see the future and yet he foreseen this was all gonna happen? It seems that this was suppose to be his fate? Oh man, this really starts to be very mysterious and I only want to have more now, lol.
But again I'm still curious why the world got destroyed with that corrupted Illah and how Solomon could created a new world. It does not really clear much up, in my opinion.
Anyway, I look forward to the new chapters and hopefully it will gonna make sense and clear lots of things up!
Hi there! This is bubblesymphony, yes the same bubblesymphony who just started translating raws that's why they're all novice-like and confusing. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me, I can just elaborate if someone just asks me either by PM here or if you have a tumblr account, just ask me. If I don't respond back, ask again because that message didn't go through.
Please treat me well. Here's the translation for this weeks' chapter! Enjoy
Thanks a lot Bubblesymphony! That translation came at the the right time.
So he thinks he's on the same level as God. I'm starting to think he's right, after all he can see Aladdin and the others. That side text is very intriguing. So it's more like a prophecy, which makes me think that Gyokuen isn't the real bad guy of Magi, but David .Oh and I wonder what his mission is.
Trolled hard this week. Does the magazine even accept only five pages? XD
Anyway, the line "Never in my 800 years of living did I plan to leave behind my own descendants." . I wonder if Solomon even had a normal birth or if his mother does even exist at all.
Its kind of funny to see everyone's faces. Muu looks like he just saw a ghost, Sinbad with his epic poker face and Kouen is surprised with the whole thing too.
Ugh, the Sinbad connection gets stronger and stronger, but yet it still doesn't feel right. Sinbad must be the best actor in world history, because up until now he may have been showing some untrustworthy tendencies but never the idea that he's an actual calculating, ascended being such as David. Just as Aladdin is not an actual reincarnation of Solomon, I can't see Sinbad as an actual reincarnation of David.

WHAT THE HELL? DAVID is creepy as hell, what's even creepier is his looks that resembles Sinbad minus the eyebrows. I'm not surprised to see David's resemblance with Sinbad, but fuck that missing eyebrows lol
On the very first page, aside from Sinbad's missing eyes, why is Yunan the only one who looks at different direction?
David doesn't seem to be really evil as everyone had thought to be. He had just a heavy role, a responsibility only he could do. And does the second page meant that everything that happens, even in the world Solomon created, does that mean that it was all also according to his plan? or was it he the one who knew the fate of Solomon and the new world he created despite the ability to see/predict the future? it seemed like he also knew that Solomon would one day surpass him.
But here's what I just thought, maybe Sinbad's hidden goal is to have a power that was like David's. To me, it seemed that David is the one that represents Fate/Destiny. He's the one who decides what shall happen next. Maybe, this is a reason why Sinbad gathers all the cards he could use because he wants to create that world through his hands. Don't get me wrong, this is just my little theory.
But Wow, another chapter that had left my mind gotten blown again. I think this chapter was just a little side-story of what would be the next one. Though its quite a good thing this only has 5 pages. I think my mind couldn't handle even more revelation of who David is :P
PS: There's the 8-pointed star again. I wonder why is it shown like that again.

WELP. Looks like David and Sinbad have a bit of a parallel going on. Maybe this is why Sinbad is reluctant to get married, yet has multiple affairs? Or his borderline alcoholism? If I knew I was the reincarnation of someone that powerful (and that doomed) I'd be a little messed in the head too. But I'm still not 100% convinced of this theory. It makes sense, but it just doesn't sit well with me. It feels too predictable.
I'm still not convinced Solomon is David's natural born son either. Like 0Yun0 said, there's no mention of a mother at all.
Thank you to Bubblesymphony for giving us a script so promptly after the chinese scans were released!
Those 5 pages were absolutely a whole chapter's worth. "At this period, my son is born. This is, of course, for the creation of a new world and for inevitable things that may happen." He may not control fate and even accepts the fact that he cannot, yet even within this memorandum in which he clearly lays out his own limitations he proves that even his defeat is inconsequential. Solomon is probably going to personally kill him, and I think it's all downhill from there for Alma Toran at least. And also notice how he continuously refers to God in a way that implies that he is more than just a giant mass of magoi. He only looks down upon god due to a feeling that he is above God and has a more important mission than God, not that God is a mindless mass of power without a will. Despite what Illa is and whether he has intelligence, he still fits the definition of a god because his role is creation and balance of the world's magoi and even David knows this. But now after reading all of this and seeing that David knows what Solomon will do while even calling it "a beautiful world, a true homeland", what exactly is there above God's mission of creation and why would David wish to do more than create a true Alma Toran?
Really? It shows for me.I'm uploading them to Photobucket.
EDIT:You're right there's something wrong with the extension. I replaced the links in my previous post. Hope it works now.
Maybe David's mission has to do with fate itself.He seems to be aware of the great flow, something that the young Solomon isn't aware of I think. He clearly knows about the new world he'll create, other than Alma Torran, so that makes me think he's also aware of the fact that Al Thamen will betray Solomon. If you think about it if it weren't for the Church Solomon wouldn't have rebelled against his father and decided to unite the world.It's as if everything was staged by David himself so that Solomon goes that route
I have a feeling that if it weren't for Al Thamen's betrayal, Solomon wouldn't have created a new world too.It's one of those specific points that David seems to refer to.Also I'm wondering if those who have fallen into depravity really break free of fate, because it sounds too surreal for me. They have to be still influenced by it, even a little.
Seriously I can't get past the eyebrows thing.Either it's a mistake of one of the assistants, or it's a serious case of eyebrow censoring.

Bathsheba is Solomon's mom in lore
Well, I don't know what to say....
Despite being five pages-long, this chapter felt like an average one and with this I mean 17 pages-long. LOL
In little words, this one completely left me speechless also thanks to the last page of it, in which all of us here saw a carbon copy of Sinbad minus the eyebrows.
Now, I guess that Sinbad might be indeed David's reincarnation, because the resemblance cannot be ignored.
In any case what David wrote in his memorandum sure is interesting and also quite misterious....I don't think that his story ended...if anything, it feels like it has just started....
One mindfuck chapter after another. My brain will get pregnant after all this mindrape.
Aegon has posted the translation.
And it is insane.
