What Is Good About Magi: The Labyrinth Of Magic (マギ)

The Story

Magi has a really interesting story that gets you sucked in immediately within the first Volume. Full of adventure, fantasy elements and mysterious characters that leave you wanting to find out more.

The Characters

Aladdin’s backstory is insanely interesting, as his past is a mystery until later on. I’m not too crazy about Alibaba but he has amazing character development throughout the story. Morgiana is best girl and can kick serious butt while Hakuryuu carries an aura of mystery but in a different way to our blue-haired protagonist.

What Is Bad About Magi: The Labyrinth Of Magic (マギ)

Slow Pacing

This applies a bit later on in the manga. At first, the pacing is done exceptionally well until we get to later story arcs (looking at YOU Alma Torran Arc) and it unfortunately begins to drag on. When we got towards the finale, the story began getting faster again until it began to become rather rushed. Something that many fans, myself included, were left a little disappointed about.

Overall Conclusion

If you’re a fan of adventure with magic and mystery thrown into the mix then Magi is definitely the manga for you!
