The final episode really wasn't anywhere as bad as I expected. They managed to include every important scene (Dunya's knight appearing in white rukh, hinting at the fact that Cassim's rukh is a part of Alibaba now) and I'm willing to forgive them, if they do the manga more justice in the second season.
And these preview pictures
Scherry, Mogamett, Kouen, Yunan and I suppose Ren Gokuen, our possible archenemy... she's the only one whose preview was bad as she looks waaaaaay too nice.
So far, A-1 has covered 111 chapters, which means right now there are 68 chapters left to animate. The anime is airing in fall (october) though, by that time we will have approxiametely 92 chapters left for animation. That's definitely enough for a second two-cour season because we shouldn't forget how they rushed through the first 111 chapters, so much that it was silly at times. If they go a bit slower, what I seriously hope for, they have more than enough material. Please just don't more extreme changes to the story
It's a shame they changed so much, up to the point were some characters were ruined and important scenes left out but in the end, a continuation might not be so bad as long as they stay faithful to the manga this time.
Does anybody know the OST that is played throughout the anime, last time i heard it it was in the final epsiode right after Sinbad kills Isnan using Focalor, alibaba and alladin appear in a city in ruins and the music kicks in.
A pure arabic song, it looks like a woman screaming in pain from her teeth( xD as funny it may sound).
Searching for days and i cant find it T_T ....
In the end I watched the last episode and well, it wasn't so bad, considering that they put in Koen, Mogamett, Sherry and the others.
Still I don't understand why they changed so much the story when they could have followed it with ease...
I'm new to the Magi board. I watched the anime before checking out the manga. But anyway, is there an explanation as to why Ithnan killed Banker in the anime? I always thought that there would be an explanation to it only to realize that it is totally different in the manga.
Well I saw the final episode and it wasn't as bad as I feared, however still don't think it overturns the BS near the end to build up their 'climatic ending' and I'm still going to ignore season 2 minus the fights
I suppose I can assume A-1 didn't think they'd get a season 2, but this still leaves a bad taste in my mouth and I'll honestly say that despite me hating the SHIT out of it's ending, I still like A-1's Ao no Exorcist much more because I enjoyed alot more episodes before it got to the major changes, and I acctually read the manga for that too.
Magi Sequel Listed as "Opening" This Fall
Not sure if I would like a film there's no way they can show the story before Magnostadt + the whole Magnostadt arc in a 2 hour long film, the arc isn't even finished yet. I could imagine a film solely based on Magnostadt and ignoring/leaving out everything that happened before. Would be kinda weird and only worth watching for the people already reading the manga if you ask me. I don't want A-1 to fuck up the story even more so I would definitely prefer an anime <__<
Please A-1 stop already...
You forget that there still is the arc with the pirates and there can be a few good filler episodes about some of the adventures that they had while traveling to their destinations and then there is the small arc where Alibaba gets to empire to train. I'm trying to be optimistic here and hope that they stay true to the manga as much as possible without making any dumb changes. Personally I did like how they made Alibaba become a black king because it did add some of the "what if" that a lot of people were thinking of and lets face it he looked pretty cool
...I guess all I can say at this point is that I hope Magi keeps up it's popularity and gets a reboot adaptation several years down the line like we got with HxH and FMA... Although if A-1 gets Nanatsu no Taizai, Akame ga Kill, Sengoku Youko, or AssClass I will literally go apeshit.
Please A-1 pictures, just leave Magi alone, or better, change that fckng shtty script writer (was the name Hiroyuki whatsoever).
I just can't accept a film adaptation of Magi, I mean seriously, isn 't just way too early?
I don't think The Magno-arc would be fitted to be adapted in a film. If they made it into an anime, i could see then excluding the Pirates arc, then they might also fit Alibaba's arc at the Reim empire and Morgiana's and Hakuryuu's mini-arcs into one episode just like what they did in the first 3 episodes of Magi. Please, we want a reboot instead...
I don’t like the idea of a movie. It’s impossible to cover the entire Magnostadt arc, and that would mean they’ll leave out many important parts before that arc.
I don’t want to see them screw up the story again, let’s hope it’s just a typo and we’ll get another 25 episode long anime adaptation.
