Like the previous episode, this episode didn't felt like rushed. I hope this will continue onto the next episodes.
I kinda freaked out to see Hakuei do her Djinn equip! Though it seemed weird for me at first, I thought it was a really awesome transformation she looked like a warrior angel
But Aladdin doing magic?... hmmmm...
Poor Ryosai, it seems like that scene is far more tragic than when we see it in the manga
And I love Paimon!
...Djinn Equip? So you can equip them? >_>
And no, the Djinn choose Alibaba without the influence from Aladdin for the reason I mentioned above~
but I can tell you that the Djinn Equip will get way more impressive later on, Hakurei displayed a rather weak power compared to what we see later.
It's finally here!!
The full version and PV of SID's V.I.P.!!!
I'm not used to see Mao in a simple casual wear
Now I'm waiting for someone to put the mp3 download link!
So even though I don't watch the anime (yet), I just wanted to say, the anime website has released voice clips of Sinbad, Masrur, and Jafar's voice actors. They sound awesome!
My personal favorite is Jafar's, mainly because I really love Takahiro Sakurai, and I think he totally nailed his voice. Sinbad's pretty good too, especially considering he's being voiced by Daisuke Ono--same voice actor who did Sebastian from Kuroshitsuji.
I can't actually find it on the Magi website, but here's the tumblr equivalent. Note that the voice actor introduces himself first, then he says "Start!", then he says a line or two "incharacter".
Actually, there are very few anime I watch. I am mostly a manga person. People have to strap me down to a seat to get me to watch something (be it movie or anime), but books I will gladly read. :P
Also...when I got into Magi, I was REALLY busy doing university work. So it was just easier to read the manga. But now that I know Takahiro Sakurai is in it, I'm definitely picking it up...when Sinbad & company are introduced.
Watching an anime after having read the manga is not really my cup of tea either. I watched the first 3 episodes but I'm not sure I will continue.
Not everyone is an animevore like you niichan :-))
Oh man, anime magazines are totally pimping out Sinbad, because they know he's popular with the ladies.
So Otomedia is a magazine for female anime fans, and for their October issue, what do they do to commemorate Magi's anime starting? Have a picture of Sinbad on the cover. Next issue: There's a spread of Sinbad relaxing with Alibaba and Aladdin in the background. So subtle.
I usually prefer to see the show and then read the manga. Otherwise I get picky about what I'm seeing and I prefer the surprise of the show over the surprise of manga.
When I get completely addicted to this show, I'll probably devour the whole manga...But for now I'll take it slowly.
Anyway, I can't get how some people who loves a manga doesn't watch the show.
Well first I prefer reading and I love dynamic black and white pages with sound effects. Second, anime arts tends to be much more generic than their manga counterpart. Third i have little interest in watching something I have already read.
Best advice : It's better to watch the Anime first then you after that you have to read the Manga . Most of the time if you're reading the manga first it would spoil the fun, seriously. I'm more of a Manga guy myself, but I cannot resist the temptation from a good Anime adaptation . I'm probably sounds like a freak, but reading a Manga and watching its Anime adaptation is just a whole different experience.
I just watch the first and second episode (finally) and I'm liking the quality since it has a very contrast colors and the motion from the characters are very smooth. I might catch-up with it sooner so I can discuss it here.
I will take that as a compliment
In the end it may be just a matter of preference but I believe that anime are just wonderful and have a lot of potential.
What is that anime you're talking about?
You're right, I was mistakenly swap it with Kuroko. A-1's AnoHana is indeed great and they're truly a rising star. The main advantage of this studio personally is the coloring, I really love the coloring style in Magi and SpaceBros (or even SAO ) and they are also able to replicate characters face from manga almost perfectly.
Ah you know, it's Teeb's section
Not wanting to be Off-topic, do you think that this Anime would go with original ending or not? This Anime is very popular, ranked number 10 in the popularity poll, it's such a waste to go with original ending.
