    Does Alibaba deserve to be MC?

    If you think he doesn't deserve to be MC then who should be the MC.

    Re: Does Alibaba deserve to be MC?

    I gotta agree with you and especially now "Veggie Alibaba" isnt fit to be any MC type, lol

    I dont think "God Aladdin" deserves to be a MC, as well if he devellops a lot yes, but if he´s gonna keep acting like he does, people are gonna get bored of him, I myself I´m already bored from him, I think the MC´s in this arc should be some of the Kou guys (Hakuryuu or Kouen or both lol) at least for the rest of the arc, If Ohtaka keeps making Alibaba and Aladdin messing up more with this arc it might get ruined (we also need panel time with "master" poor guy wasnt even been revealed yet )

    Why are you calling that chick as master?
    I also think MC should be someone from Kou or why not make Sindbad the MC?

    By "MC", what do you actually mean by "MC"?

    .....Even if you think that Alibaba is more like a joker that exists solely for various stronger KV's for their amusement, and find him weak willed, then it is your opinion, but I at least implore you to try to understand why he would take some of the decisions that make him look very very, very bad

    You can't really deserve to be a MC, the author has a story in mind a creates his main characters for this. The characters might not be liked but all their actions led to the current situation. If you change the main characters the story becomes completely different, like for Sinbad no Bouken.

    Indeed. Aladdin is the main character.
    However, by definition, the main character is the character that the story focus on, it is not a question of deserving or not. Therefore, I didn't understand the question.

    More along the lines if people are satisfied or not with the "main character", it's not like the discussion will change anything, merely "Are you happy with Alibaba as a main character"?
    Also there can be multiple of main characters in a story btw, an easy comparison with many main characters that most people can relate to would be Game of Thrones.

    I'm not all that happy with Alibaba either, he's indeed weak minded.
    Compare him with Sinbad when he was a child, it's a huge difference for two characters of the same story universe and author.

    Which means that the author probably has a massive change in mind for Alibaba, perhaps it's linked to what is happening right now in the other dimension.

    I don't think he plans to keep Alibaba this way at least, but then it's really good that any good story has a lot of character development

    The mangaka/author is a woman.

    My bad.
    I guess it's the cost of reading too many manga, too much information to keep up with

    Well at least with a fixed attitude would be nice, I don't really need a powerup from him, but yeah, that's just me.

    Re: Does Alibaba deserve to be MC?

    I wish Alibaba has a personality development. But at the same time I wish Judar to return. Manga has become boring without him. If Alibaba can return which is sealed by Bellial which is same to what Solomon did then Judar should be able to return.

    I think Kouen or Sinbad will be much better MC
