Top 10 in Magi
Quite a doozy for a chapter. Also what happened to ch 242?

I think what happened to Hakuryuu and Judal in this chapter indicates that This Djinn's power is illusion/Genjutsu ... that's why Hakuryuu was able to control Al Thamen members.
so much for aladdin x judal...
I'm still confused about the previous chapter. This one is just a mind break chapter to me
I really don't want to get into this chapter because the english scans for the previous chapter aren't out yet, but whatever I'll manage somehow.
from a glance, I think this chapter is a flashback to when haku and judal conquered a dungeon together as evident by the fact that hakuryuu is wearing his old outfit.
I'm guessing the thing with 5 eyes in the background is the djinn itself and it's power is making illusions and so it's probably messing with haku and judal's heads.
If Ohtaka thinks that Judal stabbing an illusion of Aladdin will stop the shippers, boy, she is so wrong...
So Hakuryuu's new Djinn have illusion powers; This can be one heck of weapon to deal with Alibaba and his flaw of being too indecisive. And now I want to know what the illusions of Hakuei and Morgiana are telling Hakuryuu... probably begging him to stop his quest for revenge. I wonder if he still cares for them at this point of the story
the things hakuryuu had to sacrifice inorder to gain power. oh well.
Judal did lie that what happened to his parents didn't affect him... from what this chapter has shown.
hmm in the last page... Judal overpowered the Djinn...
not sure if I understand this but... The djinn was hoping to change hakuryuu or convinced him not to go into the path Judal gave to him. Its also the same for Judal. Aladdin was talking to him to leave ALthamen and coming to their side (Aladdin's side)...err I think Aladdin said "....I know deep down in your heart you wanted to make a rich a prosperous country, am I right?"
EDIT again: NEWS JUST IN...JUDAL IS A TSUNDERE.

What just happened? I dont even know what I have seen ..
OHTAKA. JUST NO. WHAT THE HELL.
Ok, this was unexpected, the raws's release was surprisingly fast and the chapter itself was... wow.
So, Judal imploded and Hakuryuu rejected his sister, Morgiana and Alibaba, this was predictable. But did it mean that Hakuryuu gave up on Hakuei? Did he lose hope to convince her to be by his side? I don't think he is going to fight her, but what can he do now, force her to join him?
And what is Belial doing? Does he want Hakuryuu and Judal to face and get over their "weakness" or what? Someone stated that Judal is forcing the djinn to choose Hakuryuu or something like that...
This djinn is Belial? Man, I've been playing Shin Megami Tensei/Persona games for months and all of the goetia demons in those games and Magi make seem to keep me into both of them. Plus the dark as hell themes and story in Persona 3 made me think of Magi so much. There's just so much liberty that Ohtakas and others use when using these demons, I can't possibly predict their abilities based on their legends lol. Belial was a demon of the inferno in SMT, certainly not here. Obviously the ars goetia is used a lot in other places, but I'm just obsessed with both Persona and Magi right now and get excited when a new djinn is revealed this way. However the Belial here seems terrifying if it really was able to subjugate Al Thamen.

belial huh... so that means it is the 68th dungeon.
at first I thought his ability could be related to the different dimensions thing aladdin talked about in chapter 214 (I think), but I guess it's just illusions.
honestly I have to say I'm glad ohtaka is showing this stuff, and now I faith that she'll show the fight against gyokuen and maybe we'll find out then if she's really dead or not
