Good there Ohtaka, war is necessary, always it is. Hope she will get a good pace about its development because is a complex stuff, the emotions of any battle has to be expressed and concluded, i'm waiting the best of her. Obviously with an intrusion of Alibaba on it would be marvelous. Seeing his new looks in 15th volume cover was great.
Also, Mu has big Magoi, i understood Fanalis has a weak Magoi to make a good balance between strenght and magic powers. Glad i did it wrong and just happens to Morgiana.
So much happening in this chapter: The revelation of when Magnoshutatt tied with Isnan in the past, the metal vessel users of Laem empire and more importantly, how both countries want to initiate a war. I didn't think that Ohtaka would condense those events in this one chapter, to be honest. I found that a war between Magnoshutatt and Laem while alluring, it won't be a long one. I could not predict what kind of outcomes would be resulted from this war, since their motives to initiate the war (at this moment) seemingly shallow if it's just because of Titus.. I meant, did Schere intimidate Mogammet to turn in Magnoshutatt to Laem empire? I kinda forgot.
As for the metal vessel users, Fanalis having strong physical power enhanced by Metal vessels would become very though opponent for sure. I wonder how the Magician would counter them.
Links are always cool to have.
Anyway, awesome chapter. So there was this many Fanalis out there. I'm wondering if Morgiana will cross The Great Rift or not in the end and what She will do. We currently have Morgiana and Alibaba in Laem and Aladdin in Magnoshutatt which is something fortunate because somehow they will fix this before the Kou empire devours the world.
The only thing that concerns me now is that nazi thinking of Mogamett that must be dealt as soon as possible.
When Mu was revealed to be the third dungeon conqueror I screamed out loud. Like, literally. What an amazing twist!
To be honest, I was hoping that one of Laem's dungeon conquerors would be a woman, but this is also awesome. Just think of how transformative the power of the dungeon is: it completely changed Mu's life! He went from being a gladiator and a slave to becoming a king's candidate with his own troupe! He's found and gathered the remaining members of his people and brought them together. He hasn't created his own country, but if he could take back what happened to the Fanalis clan and make them a community again...that was just epic. I love stuff like that. I hope Morgiana will see this, and I wonder what her reaction would be? Or even Masrur?
Of course, Mogamett's rhetoric and reasoning was great to see too. He's such a fantastic character, and this arc has been just really amazing world building. I loved how Mogamett and Al-Sarmen's relationship turned out to be really business like. It makes the whole thing really relatable. Sometimes you have to deal with shady organizations to get what you want, even if what you want is something good. Of course, I wonder how Magnoshutatt will fair again such a large empire like Laem. Yes, the majority of their population are magicians, and magicians can be seriously powerful, but that alone will not win a war. Aladdin is going to have to think of something or this will get messy very soon.
Oh, and that drama CD is such an epic piece of fanservice. I wish I understood Japanese so I could listen to it, but alas I'll just have to assume the generals threw the best party ever for Ja'far. The mangaka doing Sinbad's Adventures has a different, but not entirely different drawing style than Ohtaka's. I wonder if they know each other previously?
What I REALLY want to see is how powerful Aladdin is going to be once he gains his access to the Rukh. Seeing Morgianna's power up should be interesting too.
Mogamett is a great character, but with this war looming...I really hope that he doesn't die. I wonder if Yamu will end up making an appearance soon too?
The war will be one sided IMO Magicians can't do anything with an army of Fanalis I am guessing that Alladin will do a talk no jutsu and hopefully they will become allies I love the characters at Magnoshutatt and Laem so hopefully they will not wipe each other out
I really like the fact that you can see the 2 sides and understand the reasoning and motivation in their decisions unlike other manga whereby there are bad guys and the protagonist must beat them no question ask. I hope it resolves itself without crippling laem to such an extent kou can just advance and take over the whole world, but they have a civil war brewing.
I don't see Mogamett surviving this conflict. I suspect that he'll sacrifice himself to save his people in some way.
I never thought there would be so many Fanalis in Laem
I wonder if the present conflict between Laem and Magnoshuttat will be an occasion for Aladdin to see Ali baba for the first time in ages. Like, if Ali baba becomes a member of the army or something like that ?
Titus is talented, but I doubt He can follow Mogamett. The guy is seriously powerful and has plenty of experience as a fighter, as it seems. I think there are some better fit candidates if He dies. Most probably if that happens things will turn ugly and Al-Sarmen will take over trough some infiltrator *coughobviouswomancough* and everything will be divided.
I just hope that He doesn't die just yet.
But if He does, maybe Alibaba can welcome the Magician in Balbad? I know, maybe I'm being to far-fetched. But his kind of government is exactly what the Magician needs.
I'm not that surprised to know that Magnoshuttat and Al Sarmen were allies before, its just that, Mogamett's reason for cutting the two countries' were because of his pride and principle of not serving under the Gois. Well, I'm kind of relieved that they were not allies anymore. But Mogamett said that he won't help or make magic tools for the Gois, but how come he considered selling magic items to other countries or to those that want/need them?
That epic moment, to see a whole army of Fanalis! (Morgianna, you're not alone!!) I never thought Mu is a dungeon capturer!! And I have always thought that Mu, Mor and Masrur could be related as siblings, but that's not applicable now.
I wonder if Aladdin would partake on to this war and help Mogamett or he would do something like what Baba did in order to prevent war from happening. My prediction is that he will "secretly" fly to Laem empire and have a talk with Scheherazade and stop the upcoming war, then he will meet Alibaba!
