No full translation, but Aohige_AP did a summary of it @ Arlong Park.
Really exciting future for this manga. And the best thing is, Ohtaka is capable to fulfil her own promises.Originally Posted by Aohige_AP
Woot that first part I guess she wasn't really serious but even if she were I doubt she will have any reason to drop it now XDOriginally Posted by Aohige_AP
Rest sounds pretty interesting too, there's still so much too reveal and I feel confident in saying that Shinobu will definitely do a good job there
Half of the world described? Fuck yeah!, this is the little of what i have been expecting from Shinobu to do. It can't be that a shonen who the main power is meant to flow the very fate of the world.
The first point is interesting. It's like she has a bad esteem about what she does. To do anything well considered by all... which is risky in the manga industry. So daredevil of her.
Dropping the series at the peak of its popularity seemingly impossible in the near future, of course, but at least Ohtaka's philosophy not to prolong the series more than it should be is exemplary. *cough* JUMP manga *cough*
From the second point, I'm glad that we know when the Kou empire arc is going to be told in the story. The problem is it seems that every conflict so far is always related to the Kou Empire so I wonder once it ends, what kind of conflict arises?.
apperently we will get a sinbad side-story with the 1st issue of 2013. it is actually quite a fun turn around to have something about sinbad. maybe we will learn what made him to conquer the 1st dungeon much more clearly now.
Here's the ANN News about that.

do you know what magazine that is from?
looks great though, it's receiving some nice rankings so if I understand this right it means magi's average rating is the second highest (at episode 6) of all the series that aired at this time? O__o
Not surprised about the Doujin's, Magi is full of bishies.
Animage, if the source link is right
Not just in TBS, in weekly rankings, Magi usually get the 9th-10th Rank, which means that Magi anime is very popular, since Magi anime is not a long run series compared to its competitor in the top 10 (say, One Piece or Chibi Maruko-chan). I'm really optimistic that Magi anime would get another season, even though not sure when.
The news about Comiket did not surprise me somehow
I'm waiting to see when Magi will be stealing top spots in character charts like Kuroko is doing now .
Magi's numbers have almost doubled since last Comiket. C82's number of Magi circles were 292, and three months later the number of circles attending C83 is 424! I wonder if it'll grow even more in the future, considering the anime has just started. Oh, and older volumes are resurfacing on the Oricon volume sales charts.
Guys, I was reading the Sunday thread and found to the next Toc will be published Amon no Ken a oneshot about Amon's Sword (only if ken means sword). Very intriguing.
Wow, first Sinbad's story of how he became famous, and now a oneshot on Alibaba's sword? Ohtaka is a very busy woman. And it's paid off because get this: Magi was the 9th bestselling series of 2012, selling 3,437,182 copies since last November. Isn't that awesome!? And Magi wasn't even on the list last year! that's some serious gain, and well deserved in my opinion.
And Sinbads backstory... just from the few pages we got in the last chapter I'm really looking forward to this. I'm really grateful for having scanlation teams out there, otherwise I probably wouldn't never be able to read this.
