Anime-wise Kougyoku's and Sinbad's portrayal was/is the best until now, the show is doing an excellent job. I enjoy/like them more than their respective manga version.
Morgiana is a close second, her awesomeness is just that more visible when she's in motion
Not completely pleased with Alibaba and Alladdin yet but it's too early to make a judgement. The crucial parts are yet to come.
I don't know why but the defeat of Ugo hadn't the same impact on me like when I read the Manga.
Otherwise again a brilliant episode.
They covered 52 and a half chapters so far. Which means only 24 chapters till the end of this arc.

has anybody watched episode 12??
I'm quite surprised to see that no one's posting about it
was it a boring episode after all?
but whatever... last scene
Next week he's going to shine
This is kind of spoilerish, but there was one noticeable change to the anime that I found interesting due to recent events in the manga, and I'm pretty sure it was the mangaka who asked for the changes;
Uhm, yeah, that's pretty much all I had to say Oh! And that I personally enjoyed this episode, the scene with Alibaba and Cassim was much more emotional than I thought it would be Oh! And...
THE LADY KILLER OF THE SEVEN SEAS
Deadpan-Masrur is epic
and PIMPbad is such a manwhore :'D

^ Why, you ask?
Man, we should get back on topic xD
Did anyone noticed? Sinbad's scar in his hand has gone! ))
or everyone's busy looking at his body? LOL
Hey, episode 13 raw is now out !
And so Magi gets its second opening and ending. Both of them indicate that the anime will go beyond the Balbadd arc, until at least the 13th volume is covered.
Honestly I don't like the second opening much, I haven's had enough of the first and this one isn't as catchy and memorable. Or maybe it'll grow on me later. On the another hand, I like the second ending a lot, it's at least on par with the first.
As for the episode itself, there's a lot of ass-kicking, some nice animation, and a great use of various tracks. What's more, there's no censoring ! Definitely on of the most exciting episodes so far.
Magi OP 2:
I don't like this.
The animation itself is good and I like the sequence...But I was too fond of the first song. ;_;
Wait, the ending is even more... less likeable.

By the way, there is a rumor saying that a new Anime show by Bones would take Magi timeslot after Magi is ended, but once the show by Bones ends, Magi would return again.
Episode was good but I feel like they're favouring Morgiana nothing bad with that, it's just that she appeared more awesome than Alibaba here which wasn't my feeling in the manga.
Again the fights were quite good but I just can't shake this feeling of it being a bit too rushed. Just like when Kogyouku "killed" Ugo - good animation but the moment could have been so much more intense if they would take it a bit slower.
What I'm surprised with is that it seems to cover way more than the Balbadd Arc I'm happy to see that there's more stuff getting animated but I fear that they will rush things again. If they go as far as the OP is intending, that means they will have to cover around 50 chapters in 12 episodes (which equals to 4 chapters covered per episode if they go to the full length of 26 episodes).
