This story is about the flow of fate and the battle to keep the world on the right path. Aladdin is a boy who has set out to explore the world after being trapped in a room for most of his life. His best friend is a flute with a djinn in it named Ugo. Soon enough, Aladdin discovers he is a Magi, a magician who chooses kings, and he was born to choose kings who will follow the righteous path, battling against those who want to destroy fate. Follow his adventures as he meets others from 1000 Arabian Nights, like Ali Baba and Sinbad, and fights to keep the balance of world in check!
Alibaba's crying brought this anime down from a 4 to a 2.8 for me. I feel like this entire arc has been him QQ'ing over things cassim does. He is completely unlikable for this reason. Cut out the Alibaba and this anime is pretty great!
I recommend this show for anyone who hasn't read the manga because:
if you have not read the manga you will not notice what parts have been missed out, which seems to be the only complaint of some of the manga readers.
this anime has good fight scenes, interesting characters, supernatural abilities, and a splash of comedy. The same ingredients as any of the top amines on this site
chuck norris said this was his favourite anime.
i made up number 3
The only downside to this anime is that they have started subbing it 3 days or so after it is released.
Two other animes that I recommend are hunterxhunter (new one and origonal. Although i prefer the original) and Kuroko no basket (didn't expect to enjoy a basketball anime, but it was surprisingly awesome)
At first I thought the anime was quite boring and from what I've read, the anime series skips chunks of parts from the manga. Which you do notice; like when you realise that all of a sudden they're like a year or half ahead so you don't really get to see the development. On top of that the blonde guy "Alibaba" one of the main protagonist gets slightly annoying in the later episodes due to him being a complete downer and just lacking self esteem. Which I just don't think is a desired characteristic on a leading role. It does kind off remind you of that round hero from Accel World but all that being said, it does grow on you and keeps you interested enough to keep you coming back every week.
Overall an OK watch. Really just a back up anime when good series end or don't air the same week
I was excited to see they would be doing an anime adaptation of the manga series, and so far I've been relatively pleased. They have indeed skipped through several chapters of the manga in the first few episodes here, but I don't think the pacing will work out like that continuously going forward. I'm hoping that they will install some more of Morg's backstory as they loop her into the series a bit more. The manga has a bit more flexibility when it comes to controlling the flow of the character backstory and how it meets up with the current events of the story, so I wouldn't be surprised if some things are left until a little later. I hope this is the case. Otherwise, for those who HAVEN'T read the manga, I trust that this will be just as enjoyable regardless.
If I were seeing it without having read the manga, I'd be loving it just the same.
