    "Not shitty" is a rather cynical way of looking at it but good choice! There are many reasons to read it, one being the arrant scenery porn.

    I just finished the first 15 chapters. I don't really like all the Magi thing, I must say. I never liked chosen protagonists.

    You could think it's for the same reason as Sket Dance 1-year delay on scanlations; it's not really popular and the groups that picked them don't have enough support to begin releasing weekly the chapters.
    Hopefully with the anime this will change.

    I can understand the frustration of Cassim and the princess in that last dungeon. The system really suck. Greatness can only be achieved by fate. A naive ten year old kid is supposed to pick kings because it's his destiny. And going against destiny is portrayed as evil dark magic.

    I hope the author see this. It would be a fucked up story if this doesn't change.

    Yes. I don't see why not.

    This whole flow of rukhs and destiny plot is way too suspicious. I get the impression these people are prisoners of the flow of rukhs. There is some higher power selfishly controlling the world. But Magi is still too naive to see this.

    Like a version of the matrix, but less extreme. Or more like what Naruto would be if Tobi succeed "the moon eye plan".

    I like this manga. I'll admit it might not be reinventing the shonen genre, it does however tell a story, and tells it well. I enjoy the Dijinn and the different battle styles.

    I went back and looked at it and you're right. This really is fucked up. If you go against fate then all of a sudden its like evil and shit. That's almost as fucked up as the Bleach world.

    I think you are going to much into fate has "things are already determined", when Aladin is talking with the dark priest it seems to me that what is really being talked about is mortality. The flow of Rukh is the classic flow of life, people die and people are born and so on and the Rukh flows through it. Basically, we are all fated to die. The opposing party doesn't seem to like this at all (which I can also find understandable) and is actively trying to oppose the flow.

    There is also the extra layer of the presence of the Magi like some sort of divine arbiters but even then we are seeing that it's not exactly "magi decides king, everybody sucks it, end of story", we are seeing how a guy that seems to be an amazing king and a great candidate to go even higher looks a hell of a lot shiftier than one would expect and another whose first act has been to found a republic which negates any sort of royal or divine right.

    The chosen of the magi don't need to be rulers, they can also be guides to greater things which is the approach Aladin and Alibaba are going with.

    Well... I went through all 100 chapters over the last day and a half and I gotta say, I'm impressed.
    Now while I agree above, the system of destiny isn't that great and I can see already how its going to turn out (They're going to have to fight destiny in the end, you can bet on that).
    But the story is pretty good, especially since it is based on the 1001 Arabian Nights background.
    Characters are pretty fleshed out, serious portions are decent and are not overdrawn.. and the main character, despite being considered a 'genius' is still a total goofball when he wants to be.

    So far, I'm pretty happy with what's been done. :D
    EDIT:

    The chosen of the magi don't need to be rulers, they can also be guides to greater things which is the approach Aladin and Alibaba are going with.
    Missed that little tidbit.. this is a possibility that I enjoy.. and hope is actually true.

    I'm still early in the series, but I don't really look deeply into the concept of "destiny" or "chosen one". I personally see that as a misconception, or... something the leads the character to believe that he is special when he's nothing unique at all. It's a narrative I've seen done dozens of times already, so I would not be surprised if that's the case in a story with as much world building as this.

    I have to say my previous commends may look like complaints, but i'm enjoying this a lot. This manga seems to be very solid and well planned out. And i love the adventure, the fantasy. The kingdoms and even some politics. Interesting powers, cool fighting system. Even some hints at romance which is cute. Great manga! it has become one of my favorites. I'm amazed this has only four pages. more people should pick it up.

    ...Now that everyone is starting to pick it up.. I'm preparing myself for massive disappointment that all Manga's reach.. laziness of the artist and reduction of Plot to just power-up scenes and deus ex machinas. >_>
