    I enjoyed this alot...probably more than I should have, actually. It's a retelling of Aladdin's story, and if you grew up on the Disney version of this classic fairy tale, then get ready for something different.

    Aladdin is a young traveling boy, who has a Djinn named Ugo. Ugo has a problem. He can't seem to get his head out of the pipe that he is stuck in. However, he can get his body and neck out, so he is always there to help whenever Aladdin is in a pinch.

    Some of the people Aladdin meets up with are not quite as trustworthy as Ugo, though. Laylah, who seems like a fine and upstanding young lady, actually turns out to be a bandit. Happily, she ends up redeeming herself by helping when people get caught by bandits. Alibaba is a young guy, whose heart is in the right place, but whose mind seems to be deadset on clearing dungeons.

    All I can say is that Aladdin's travels will end up being anything except boring as he keeps encountering all these interesting characters among his way.

    A playful manga series based on the stories from Arabian Nights! A fantasy adventure with a good blend of comedy. Great for older youth (ages 12+), teen and adult based on stories most readers should recognize! We have the ever famous Aladdin starring in this series With a magical flute that summons his friend, Ugo. Ugo is a shy, headless djinn. Aladdin is trying to help him recover his head and this book begins their adventures. Another famous name is given to us Alibaba who is hand for hire who wants to make it rich.

    Aladdin can appear as an adorable little boy one minute, an intelligent youth the next or can seem to be a very pervy child. This gives Aladdin an interesting depth that leaves me curious to learn more about the real him in volume 2. Alibaba befriends Aladdin so that he will explore a dungeon for treasures with him. The way the dungeons are described remind me of old-school video game play.

    Again, I love the various portrayals of Aladdin. In one scene he can be overly snuggly with some girl, the next, saving the day! While I love the different sides to him, they ways he can be drawn varies a bit too much. He can look 4 years old on one page, 10 on another and around 14 on the next! Too many styles were used in this manga, making difficult to decide if I like the art style or not. And for graphic novels, artistic style is just as important as the story in my opinion! Also there is unnecessary narration that I could have done without.

    There is a character we meet you seems to know something about Aladdin but we don't learn much in this volume so I am eager to learn more of him in volume two. Overall, the book has some amusing parts and a playful yet beloved storyline that I am curious to see where it leads. Fans of the original Dragon Ball series will likely enjoy this series as well

    Der erste Band der Magi-Reihe und ich muss wirklich sagen, obwohl ich den Anime bereits kenne, wurde mir beim Lesen des Mangas niemals langweilig. Ich finde, es gibt einige Unterschiede zwischen dem Manga und Anime und auch der Witz kommt im Manga deutlich mehr zum Ausdruck und ist noch besser gelungen als im Anime.

    Ich liebe die Neuinterpretation der Geschichte von 1001 Nacht im actiongeladenen, magischen und vor allem humorvollen Manga-Gewand. Mir sagt der Zeichenstil vollends zu. Die Mischung

    Der erste Band der Magi-Reihe und ich muss wirklich sagen, obwohl ich den Anime bereits kenne, wurde mir beim Lesen des Mangas niemals langweilig. Ich finde, es gibt einige Unterschiede zwischen dem Manga und Anime und auch der Witz kommt im Manga deutlich mehr zum Ausdruck und ist noch besser gelungen als im Anime.

    Ich liebe die Neuinterpretation der Geschichte von 1001 Nacht im actiongeladenen, magischen und vor allem humorvollen Manga-Gewand. Mir sagt der Zeichenstil vollends zu. Die Mischung ist einfach hervorragend in diesem Manga und ich kann die Fortsetzungen kaum noch erwarten.

    Aladin und Ali Baba sind ein tolles Gespann und auch die „Antagonisten“ wissen zu gefallen. Die Story entwickelt sich von Kapitel zu Kapitel stetig mehr und man merkt jetzt schon, dass das noch etwas ganz Großes wird.

    Freue mich schon sehr auf Band 2!

    Um… okay… I kinda love this manga.

    I know this series is pretty popular right now, so I figured I’d check it out, and boy oh boy was it hysterical! The artwork is pretty standard, but the over exaggerated faces are so hilarious and spectacular. Like this page, for example. I busted out laughing at the guys at the bottom:

    Aladdin is so fricken adorable and ridiculous, you can’t help but love him. Alibaba is a pretty hilarious character as well. And Ugo… OMG I love it every time he’s out of the flu

    I definitely wasn’t expecting to dig this so much. This is like D&D meets Alibaba and the 40 Thieves. I really want to read the rest of this series right now, but it’s not out entirely yet, and the series isn’t over. So I need to decide if I want to wait or go for it and re-read it later. If the hilarity keeps up, I might just have to read what’s out now.

    It is a quick read, because it is a manga, and they are graphic novels, so they don't have many words and don't take to long to read. But aside from finishing it in one day, it is and interesting series and I might read the others!! but first I want an actual chapter book first.

    Any book where I can't even get through the first chapter before the preteen main character starts groping an adult woman is not for me.

    I'm not sure why, but I kind of expected not to like this as much as the other manga that I've been reading. But this was really funny! Definitely enjoyed myself while reading it. I think I like it better than the anime.

    See, the thing is that the first volume is

    typical and generic. Like, I have seen this type of first volume TONS of times. Main character is introduced without context, holds mysterious powers, randomly saves a minor character's dilemma and end of chapter. Part of the reason is that the first chapter was a

    meaning that it was intended to test the waters and see if the public reception was good. However, not an excellent beginning by any means. Hell, the following chapters aren't that much better but at the very least it appears as though the mangaka has begun to take steps to characterize and develop the world.

    In the world of Magi, there are dangerous places called Dungeons, said to hold many treasures for those who venture inside. However, many do not return. These dungeons appeared randomly fourteen years ago and no one knows why. And that is all we know right now. The first volume begins steps into showing how a dungeon is like and the culture of the locale.

    Aladdin, our main character, is very likeable, and at some points the most adorable thing I have ever seen. He is also very mysterious since he has something people call the "Metal Vessel" and by the way people react when they see it, its a cool power to have in this world.

    Alibaba is a person Aladdin encounters in the second chapter, who dreams of becoming the richest man of the world by venturing into Dungeons. Initially, he sees Aladdin as a total idiot but once he sees his powers, realizes that Aladdin may be the key for him to find treasure.

    Part of what made me like this first volume was the chemistry between Aladdin and Alibaba and the humor their interactions caused. Aladdin acts like such a child and Alibaba is the sort of character right now where he doesn't really care about Aladdin and acts a bit selfish sometimes, but you can tell will grow to be awesome later on. Although he might not care greatly about Aladdin right now, he will definitely in the future.

    So there isn't really much to say without spoilers so I'll leave it at this.

    The first volume isn't the best first impression, it's a bit generic and formulaic to how most shounen begin. But like some other shounen, I can tell that it will eventually expand and grow into something more complex and intriguing that will make it stand out from the rest. If not for the fact that the manga community loves it and the small tidbits I have heard about it, I might have thought it was completely generic. While the first volume might not be anything special, it will grow and develop. And the big take away from the first volume is the promise which the series holds.

    + Aladdin and Alibaba's Relationship

    + Art

    + Humor

    - Generic Start

    Final Rating: 5.5 / 10

    Discussion.

    I was bit disappointed with the first chapter. The rest of the first volume was fine, but I kept having this feeling that

    did this sort of first chapter better where they reveal nothing and only hint at the Plot and Characters.

    I really liked Alibaba's introduction and how he initially acted towards Aladdin VS The Rich Fat Guy. After a while though, when the poor girl got almost eaten by the monster, that money wasn't worth a person's life!

    This chapter developed Aladdin and Alibaba's chemistry now that they partnered up. And it really touched me how Aladdin got mad that he was called a servant, and how it connected to his one wish of wanting a friend.

    FORESHADOWING ON DUNGEONS. Finally, a semblance of plot. There's probably gonna be some crazy ass monsters in those dungeons later. Also, slavesssssss.

    Aladdin and Alibaba don't give a fuc* about RFG's slaves!!!!

    A young kid steals things, destroys other people's property, and then beats them up. He's also an idiot, but that's him being seven (or whatever), not him being stupid for a child. Ever wonder what would happen if a random child unlocked the "might makes right" jutsu? Here ya go. I imagine parts are supposed to be cute. Instead I kept thinking, "well, that guy's dead... and they're all bankrupt now."
