It is not really "bad", but so far from the goodness of the manga. That's just my opinion though.
But it could have been so much better.
What I find most funny is that they show Abhmad (and Sabmad) with his new Indian outfit in the second OP and then totally leave out that part in the anime I mean he's not much of an important character but his change compared to the Balbadd Arc was really nice to see.
Only a minor thing compared to how much they fucked up things since the Sindria Arc started (or the whole Isnan/Banker deal ) but makes me wonder if back then it was still up in the air if they would be faithful or if this is just a little easter egg
I don't get it... They partly use the Manga material... But still make a mess out of it... (reminds me of Soul Eaters Anime)
Why or when did they decide to... crush... the story completely?
Now they really need a restart... =/
And please NOT by A-1 ever again...
So I heard that it will get an original ending? Oh well why didnt they just followed the manga plot? I hope they get the focalor fight as awesome as its deserve...
Eh, I've enjoyed this anime pretty well overall. The manga is better no doubt, but this adaption was fun. Though God I hope it gets a remake by another studio.
That or Bones.
Though I doubt a remake would be probable... at least not anytime soon. They'd at least have to wait for the manga to be close to its finish, I guess. Then who knows, maybe then it'll catch the attention of better studios, and Magi finally gets the treatment it deserves. One can dream, right?
Hmm. Glad I never watched the anime. Every manga I like that gets turned into an anime seems to end up this way. It seems like the only mangas immune to this are the super popular ones that last indefinitely, otherwise they get too many unfortunate changes.
I watched the new episode today and all I can say is I have mixed feelings about the episode...
Never saw such a bad adaption since the debacle with Luffy vs Hody in One Piece
Okay, I've just finshed watching episode 24... I have a VERY MIXED feelings watching this weeks episode! I don't know if I'll like the way they change the whole Zagan arc, or not...
After so many months, I finally heard my most favorite background music for Magi!! If you know what i mean, the one that has been played from the trailers... I can't wait for the soundtrack now! Even though the anime's been messed up, at least they still managed to have a great collection of soundtracks

Yes I'm done now. If anyone even read my spoiler, I'm sorry for the long rant. This has to let out from my frustration.
