Magi is an anime and manga written and drawn by Shinobu Ohtaka. Magi can be found in Weekly Shonen Sunday. The anime has be adapted by A-1 Pictures and license by Aniplex USA. Magi is heavily inspried by One Thousand and One NIghts. The first episode introduced the main characters Aladdin and Alibada. Aladdin seems rather naive but his powers are a bit mysterious. Alibada, dreams of being wealthy and clearing all the worlds mysterious dungeons. Towards the end of the episode they decided to go on an adventure together. So far the only aspect of this series I can judge is it’s top notch animation. As for the story or characters it’s to soon make an informed judgement. I’m really hopeful for this series I enjoyed this episode and hope to continue enjoying future episodes.

  1. Do you read manga as well?
    At the moment Im reading manga instead of watching anime, mostly because I appreciate the art work more. I can take all the time I want to look at a page.


    1. I read manga and watch anime. I completely agree that often the art work in manga is superior and more consistent than the animation in most anime. However, I prefer good animation to good art.
