With this factor, i don't mind fast pace... but truly, this is how battles entertain mankind, it isn't a matter of emotions or feelings in it's midst. It's the one of many crude images of human nature. Must say that i understood why Ohtaka did those chapters about Mogamett and his intentions. War is fast, no one can think while killing and Ohtaka does it marvellous without respect for each other. It has a content behind, someone much better than any other war i've seen.
About the chapter; excellent, much better than expected. Aladdin sure it's going to defy his goal of withstand Al Sarmen menace on the wizards because of carnage.
Ali is eating popcorn and watching this behind a ship, hope he enters soon.
I understand that the main event will be Aladdin, Albibaba, and the Kou empire but I don't think its such a great thing to make the dash the main event so apparent that the chapters despite being important aren't as important as they could have been, or better presented.
Outside of pacing issues I'm honestly wondering why nobody seems to notice that Magnoshuttat is a country that needs to disappear. Fact that its developed such strong weapons of mass destruction that if it happens to fall into the Reim or Kou empire hands would inevitably lead to a much bigger catastrophe. Frankly, Aladdin's got his work cut out for him, and this to me would be the real interest because this so called war between the two countries just flies right by me since I know the current chapter is entirely going to be useless coming next chapter. But yeah its not a good sign for me when I am just thinking "just get this over with as there is something far more interesting out there" guess it tends float over with others better.
Edit: Honestly some rough statistics of the ratio of loss between the Reim empire and the magical academy would have been nice, I mean we suddenly see losses on the side of the magical academy at least give an idea of how many Reim soldiers it took to take down one from the academy.

The way I see things, Magnoshuttat and Reim are going to have to ally themselves to fight against the Kou empire at this point. It's either that, or they both get overtaken eventually.
I understand that Mogamett would be heavily against this, but as far as I can tell, losing even one high class magician is huge loss in battle ability, and Reim has taken heavy casualties thanks to that weapon. Although the main force are clearly the Fanalis, foot soldiers are pretty important too.
This is war alright. :O
A magic nuke out of nowhere... Damn this is intense...
Next week the epic Fanalis Corps... I wonder where Alibaba is?
magnosh is an important country in this series because the discrimination of magicians are highlighted in here... the questions how will aladdin solve this because that is his final goal t get rid of discrimination and defeat the al sarmen. It is true that the manga is pacing to fast however you can't really judge it for now because they only eliminated the useless stuff which is the army and the shield>>> if the future chapters will highlight the fight between the finalis and magician mano a mano, I think the pacing was just right. .
Personally I think that aladdin will stop the current war between reim and magnosh when mogamett use the black djinn although this is quite obvious. . on the other hand if reim is too much to magnosh even after using the black djinn and mogamett died . .Aladdin will become magnosh's magi and tried to resolve the discrimination . .The war was also a good introduction to the 4th magi
