    Re: Magi 172 Discussion/173 Predictions

    I suddenly felt this chapter, with its lack of revelation and super power-ups, pretty much compensate fast-paced chapters I've been whining about over the past few weeks. I'm also glad that Aladdin did not become a hero in one day, and assistance from other magicians of Magnostadt are pretty much appreciated. And... Scherry is simply arrogant, I guess no doubt about that already. She doesn't have composure like Aladdin or Yunan has, and her ambition is purely motivated by Raem's interest - or her - and nothing else.

    I believe by the end of this war, Raem would retreat, but I'm not sure whether their withdrawal would be departed from amicable settlement after this devastating war or they're simply lose. I'm thinking the first option would be more feasible, especially since Alibaba is on their side as well. Aladdin might offer Magnostadt to form an alliance with Sindria, but at this point I still could not see that the possibility of the outcome of this war would go into that direction. Not yet.

    Even if it's a good chapter, I think Othaka is another author that failed to portray a war properly. ;_;
    The Sky is pouring
    The wind is blowing
    The sea looks red,
    a surging sea of flames
    looks like the entrance to hell
    'Perfect', the captain said.

    I think it's difficult to portray a war properly, especially in manga form. With that said, I think Ohtaka gave a very good effort, even if this one fails in comparison to others that succeeded.

    Why do you think that?

    I think the only fail here was Aladdin helping Magicians xD

    Well, wars on shounen are hardly good and I yet have to see one that is actually pleasing.

    I just want something that can handle the simultaneity of events and the chaos war gives. And you can't do that when every soldier is just a fodder: You must give them some focus, present their thoughts, show their fear, make them see the other players around, sense despair.

    I repeat: I've yet to see a great war in shounen.

    Very good chapter, but I'm sure the Fanalis are not done yet and they will defeat most of the magicians before Aladdin makes his move.

    What are the others that succeeded ? I'm very curious about this.

    I think OP war version is very well done, however I can't find Magi's version lacking either. This is just being picky already

    It's not a huge deal. I'm a big Romance of the Three Kingdoms and Sengoku Era junkie, so when I think "wars", I'm always going to think back to those. Don't get me wrong, I'm still enjoying this and the manga.
