Top 10 in Magi
This is where you can post and discuss the spoilers for the next chapter of Magi
chapter 223 : http://tieba.baidu.com/p/3005156039
This chapter... wauw. I seriously need translations for this one! Those light and dark thing makes me nervous... I'm now starting to doubt a little bit about who is the betrayal Magi...? Geez, Ohtaka never fails to confuse me or to let me think so hard. What I also want to know is what Sheba and Arba did promise to each other?
Translations guys.... we need some translations. XD
....Arba is so creepy.This is the first time that I'm thinking that Gyokuen might be Arba.There's something weird about those pages at the end. Sheba has an angelic appearance, and Arba is all black with demonic wings.It's almost as if Arba asked Sheba to become closer to Solomon and be in the spotlight, while she stays behind the scenes..Either way it's shaping up to be a love triangle, but I wonder if it's just that.
Ugh Ohtaka is taking too much time on this stuff, she needs to shows us already what happened to David, how Al Thamen were formed etc. But maybe this is really important to explain what happened.And wasn't this chapter supposed to show Aladdin and co's reaction?

Ikr? I also though for a moment that Gyokuen is Arba but then again I also think Gyokuen is Sheba. Arghh.. Thanks Ohtaka for making the fandom more confusing then it already was. She really is amazing author, that is fore sure. Anyway, Ineed to wait for the translations even though I know that I'm so damn impatient.. >__<;
But one thing I came up with was this: The betrayal did not happen without a huge reason. I do not think that love is the real reason for it (hopefully not..) but it ends up like if it was Sheba who ends up in darkness. That makes me damn curious for what really happened between Arba and Sheba. It feels like two sisters (I know they aren't sisters but they really act that way, which I love a lot) being one the angelic and the other the demonic. It feels like if it actually turned the other way as how Arba imagined it. Like that Sheba, the angelic appearance turned later into the demonic appearance while Arba the demonic appearance turned into the angelic appearance.
Ohtaka is really amazing. Why she is amazing? Easy. She knows how to make a story so interesting, I never have seen an story like Magi before and she explains everything so perfect and also mysterious. She knows how to manipulate us but she is after all a real troll master. But I will not fall for it, all the hints she made about Gyokuen being Sheba even the sketch of Gyokuen having pink eyes makes me stay behind that decision and even if we see Suddenly Arba having some expression as Gyokuen face, for me it does not say that much. There happened something, something huge we really want to know and yet we still can not now for now. But I will stay with my theories for now and I really believe that she will make everything explained the way we would not though about but also could though about.
LET'S LOOK FORWARD TO TRANSLATIONS AND TO THE NEW CHAPTERS MY DEAR FELLOW MAGI FANS.

man this spooky just a different eye color, I also added a dot to the bottom pic
Ohtaka sure likes to blur the lines, this chapter looks like it's going to be as confusing as the last one. Well I really think she's a troll master, along with Oda.Ohtaka is trollzama
Don't understand much from the chapter without the trans, but it seems intereting. I'm glad people are staring to think Arba being Gyokuen at least as a possibility.
And all those hints that Gyokuen might be Sheba, even to make a sketch of Gyokuen with her eye colour, wouldn't be a waste of time to make all those things and then suddenly it turned out to be someone else? In my opinion, it would not make sense at all. All those chapters, even the flashbacks and the way of speaking, everything that was shown to lead everything to Sheba being the betrayal Magi. It really would be a waste of time if those would be thrown away, wouldn't it? It seems if people really forget this so easily because of one chapter that just shows some expression of Arba being demonic like. We really should know better, don't we? Magi is being all mysterious now but what I'm sure about is that Ohtaka has a huge plan. She likes to let people think and let us believe what we saw now because it feels like she knows we will forget about the early chapters. She want to surprise us and she did but I'm aware that she does not waste her time for making us believe what we did believe. That kinda would be sort of disappointing, wouldn't be? But I know there is a reason for this and I'm really looking forward to it!
Anyway, what I wanted to make clear is that I really love both Arba and Sheba. And every decision that Ohtaka will make, I will accept everything that she will make. ^v^
And now........ I want to have the translations! XD
Btw, next week is the golden week, right? Because then we need to wait for two weeks so.. no Magi for one week. ;w;

Gyokuen's identity gets harder and harder to predict, even if Sheba has her faults she truly believes in Solomon and turned into a really nice person and even if Arba looks like she is really nice we really don't know much about her.
omg i think that arba is gyokuen!
and if you seealaddin's mother's silhouette and hair style, you'll find out that they are exactly same with Sheba.
Arba's hair style is totally different.
By the way here is a summary of the chapter that Gintamass made on tumblr: http://gintamass.tumblr.com/post/838...i-223-spoilers
Ohtaka's backstage is updated at Wednesday midnights in Japan's time as well
Ummm, more on topic (maybe)... When I saw the raws I wished someone would make a crack edit where Sheba and Arba, after they do their pinky promise, morph into Gyokuen, hahah.
After reading this chapter summary, I still believe that Sheba is Gyokuen. I mean, Arba is getting suspicious, but there're so many heavy implied evidences about Sheba, that it'd be strange if it wasn't her (although it's not impossible). On the other hand, I really like how both girls made a promise ♥
