Gook scans are out
Looks like some kind of fiery speech about their how shit they are now compared to their military history, and how she gonna change that.Would be cool if sinbad tries to undermine this effort.
Fishprincess is surprisingly durable to be able to endure a fivesome on her own.
You mean like Mao Zedong's disastrous industrial revolution called the Great Leap Forward which completely crippled China? I can see they do something like that due to the lack of patient and knowledge.

I am a gyopo Korean. Never seen this manga and don't plan to translate shit.
There is no competition.
For some reason it reminds me of this. Maybe because Alibaba's eyes look simmilar when he is using this ability
>tfw we're obviously building up into a hope spot where it seems everything's going fine just before Gyokuen fucks over everything to establish she's the biggest baddest bitch while wearing Hakuei's face
>Wasn't Gyokuen just Sinbad's pet now?
Her appearance after the time skip gave me the impression Sinbad's cautious of her. Feels like she's going to backstab Sinbad eventually. Ohtaka obviously can't let her husbando Sinbad become really evil so whatever bad things Gyokuen does will be outside of Sinbad's decision so he's not accountable yet the characters will treat Sinbad as if he's evil because Gyokuen's under him.
Don't worry anon, will probably happen.
>people actually believed Sinbad took out Zepar from Kougyoku
Although a funnier plot twist would be if Alibaba was the last person Sinbad Zepar'd which explains why Sinbad said that Alibaba will always be his ally.
Even so, Baba's body was already devoid of all magoi. I know it's not outright stated how that would work but I feel it makes no sense for Zepar to keep control over what's pretty much a human-shaped sack of meat and bones.
Best girl, no contest. To think I really liked "literally who" when all this begun. I know it's not her fault for being sidelined but seriously, she can't compare to Fish Empress now.
It always irked me how Ill Illah never had a will before David. I dont know why.
Btw Kougyoku and Alibaba are fucking cute together. Please marry.
Spoiler summary says that Alibaba is also helping Kou because he has no idea where to look for Aladdin and assumes that such a big undertaking might lure him out. Kougyoku reacts weirdly to it again like in chapter 290.
More proof that fish is hiding something,
>People actually think Fish is best girl
They are right
>You will never hold Fish Empress' sweaty palms
>More proof that fish is hiding something
Aladdin probably told her not to say anything before the time was right. He probably already knows that Alibaba was coming from reading the rukh or some shit.
Its still good, but im surprised at the retardedly slow pacing.
Im enjoying it tho.
At least the slow pace made that dumbass leave that kept insisting that the manga is getting axed.
As for the slow pace: I figure it's because Magi is one of the best-selling manga in Shounen Sunday - might as well make the last arc last as long as possible, especially since the magazine's sales have been getting worse and worse. Losing Magi would likely accelerate its decline even more.
>If Aladdin helped her out then that explains it.
I'm not going to assume that much until it's stated. I prefer to think she just wasn't weak enough to go full edge despite her hate for Sinbad.
But it's only three years, right? He could still be a shota.
Hakuryuu is a lucky boy right now desu
Do you think he and Hakuryuu
Here's the new pv
Seems like we are going to the uncharted by ovas waters - Sassan and Artemyura await.
I'm not even done with the original series and now there is a spinoff? Just how popular is this series?
At this point it's well over 30 years. Arba was in control when Sinbad was born and Hakuren would be the same age as him. If she is indeed a seperate person, it becomes doubtful any of her kids actually knew the real Gyokuen.
Arba exists only as a soul. Her original body was destroyed or sealed in Alma Torran. Gyokuen is Kounese broad who married the first emperor and then got possesed by Arba. After Arba's body was destroyed, she possessed Hakuei's body.
>Arba exists only as a soul. Her original body was destroyed or sealed in Alma Torran.
She's a magi, and we know they can create bodies. For all we know, Gyouken was one such artificial body.
>Gyokuen is Kounese broad who married the first emperor and then got possesed by Arba. After Arba's body was destroyed, she possessed Hakuei's body.
It was never confirmed that Gyouken ever existed as a separate person from Arba.
I want him to end up with
Do you have the picture of him laying down? You know the one.
>For all we know, Gyouken was one such artificial body.
How would a soul use magic?
>It was never confirmed that Gyouken ever existed as a separate person from Arba.
Sure it was.
New magi omake
i need to say i missed all of them interacting
>Sure it was.
That could fake. It's to be expected from someone like Arba.
>How would a soul use magic?
Whoever gave Alibaba his new power used magic, and they certainly don't have actual bodies as they are part of rukh. So I'm inclined to believe souls of powerful magicians can use magic just fine.
nah but heres my favourite one of him
>Whoever gave Alibaba his new power used magic
Nobody actually gave him his new power. He simply has it because his spirit spent so long drifting outside of the living world's flow of time.
read the gook scans
pretty much turning the entire military into economic workforce and merchants, all military R&D to focus on economy and competition
I guess you can compare it to the fervent nationalism that pushed and shaped post-war Japan and Korea into what they are today
>Nobody actually gave him his new power. He simply has it because his spirit spent so long drifting outside of the living world's flow of time.
No, you can see the silhouette of two magicians. They put him in the state that made him develop that power.
>That could fake. It's to be expected from someone like Arba.
Judar spells it out for you and you still deny it.
>Whoever gave Alibaba his new power used magic
Alibaba's power is the direct result of dying.
>No, you can see the silhouette of two magicians. They put him in the state that made him develop that power.
Alibaba met teh spirits of magicians and talked to them. That's it. No one trained him or anything.
>Alibaba met teh spirits of magicians and talked to them. That's it. No one trained him or anything.
It wasn't training. They put him in some sort of state like if he was about to die multiple times. It's depicted in that same page.
>Judar spells it out for you and you still deny it.
Doesn't mean he's right.
>They put him in some sort of state like if he was about to die multiple times.
What? No. It's the effect of the condom body he was wearing there. It's not implied Setta and Wahid gave him the body, there is just a single panel of them. It's more likely the work of Ugo who also sent Judar to Alma Torran before he died.
>Doesn't mean he's right.
No need for Ohtaka to needlessly confuse the reader. If she didn't want this explained, she would keep Judar silent.
>What? No. It's the effect of the condom body he was wearing there. It's not implied Setta and Wahid gave him the body, there is just a single panel of them. It's more likely the work of Ugo who also sent Judar to Alma Torran before he died.
Why do you think they appear in the same page when Yunan's explaining Alibaba's power? Clearly they are involved in how he got it. Either they gave him the power or they gave him the body.
>Why do you think they appear in the same page when Yunan's explaining Alibaba's power?
Because it's simply a reference to some of the wizards who Alibaba talked to over his 100 years in limbo. It doesn't indicate anything more than that.
>Even though I don't know who gave you that body
And that's when the wizards are shown. It's right there. Nothing pertains to them giving Alibaba this power, just the body.
The "time slowing down" shit is a direct result of him staying dead for too long. The cactuar body was so he can actually move during his time dilation powers. It's implied by Alibaba that Setta and Wahid were the ones who gave him that body.
This is literally explained in that one chapter. How are you people having trouble comprehending this.
They met Alibaba and helped him on his way. It's one of his first memories from the Alma Torran in the puppet body. And besides, Wahid used fire magic, and Setta used ice magic. Not puppets and shit.
Misdirection is Sheba looking eveil like Arba in the beginning of ALma Torran flashback. There is zero need for it when Gyokuen's chapter is closing.
>And that's when the wizards are shown. It's right there. Nothing pertains to them giving Alibaba this power, just the body.
The panel is there to reveal who gave him the body to the audience despite Alibaba not knowing who do it. That's why is superimposed with that line of dialogue.
>They met Alibaba and helped him on his way. It's one of his first memories from the Alma Torran in the puppet body.
>And besides, Wahid used fire magic, and Setta used ice magic. Not puppets and shit.
They're no limited to only that kind of magic. That's only their especially.
>It's implied by Alibaba that Setta and Wahid were the ones who gave him that body. This is literally explained in that one chapter. How are you people having trouble comprehending this.
It's /a/. What did you expect?
Now, now, I enjoyed your discussion don't start bullying each other now.
If you think after all the time it took for Mor to realize she was in love with him and would just stop after three years, you've kind of been missing her character in general. But it's okay Greg, I get you.
When Alibaba confesed to her, she told him to wait until she was ready to give him a reply. He promised he would wait, she promised she would give him a reply.
Then he died, so she could put that promise aside and make her life with someone else. But I don't think she will. I think she'll wait until she can give him a reply, like she promised.
Creating acactuar body is too high tier magic for someone specialized in fire and ice. Or for a spirit. Or for anyone not Ugo at all.
But fine, okay. Keep thinking spirits magicked up a body for Alibaba and Gyokuen never existed.
>Spends an accumulated 6 months with Alibaba at most
>Spent an overall 2 years away form him before the timeskip
>Spends 3 whole years with Hakuryuu nonstop
>Doesn't think she's capable of changing her mind
I know you're underage, but that's not how love works, anon. Just accept it.
Because clearly, a fucking doll that contorts to your physical form is easier to make than a shitty puppet that doesn't and is apparently a pain in the ass to control. You moron.
>a catuar king with death replay installed.
Time dilation didn't come from the cactuar body. Read 289 again.
This. Let's get back on track. Post cute.
>You will never pat Aladdin on the head like he was a cute dog while he smiles back at you
>Literally all my ships in one image
>he probably noticed the difference and Gyouken killed him
inb4 who is that
It's the character called Mor everyone is talking about
>It's Fish Empress time.
Anyway, the idea of this arc is great. Really glad that Ohtaka is making it, I really need something like that after the terrible taste the ending of the previous arc left in my mouth.
I'm up for this. This would be so comfy.
oh gee, i feel so appreciated
david might be my favorite villain ever
He is a good man. I'm hoping to see interactions with his grandson soon
good picture choice there
>Literally thought he was a girl when he first showed up
>He seemed to have a crush on Alibaba at the end of Magnostadt arc
>Even Samurai King thought he was a girl
Getting aroused to this is f ir game.
it might be more common than you imagine!
>Belial dungone rape

>edge bros bonanza
>Kouen character development
>generals last stand
Kouen turning out humna bean and Sinbad outsmarting everyone was goat, what are you talking about.
Aladdin back yet? No? Well buh-bye then.
>I WANNA BE A GIRL WITH MASSIVE TITS
>Kouen turning out humna bean and Sinbad outsmarting everyone was goat
That's not the ending, and I loved that.
>what are you talking about.
I'm talking about the two last chapters. You know, the ones that made puke even some people who fucking loved that arc, and that turned a lot of subplots into a joke.
even if like Kouen, i do agree with some in that Hakuryuu lost his edge way too quickly. I wanted to see some healing with Mor before that.
i think Morg Ship not gonna sail after this arc
Sure anon, I wrote "a lot of subplots" just because "I'm salty Hakuryuu lost his edge".
Fuck you and your fanboy war, seriously.
No idea how someone can be so dumb, even people who liked that trash should be somewhat aware how many things suddenly changed direction and writing style. And it's not even the first time she does that at the end of an arc, but this times it was even worse.
>Translation: WAAAAAH WAAAAAH MY HEADCANON DIDN'T TURN OUT TO BE TRUE!!
It's okay, anon. Ya can't win them all.
>"Alibaba is wearing such baggy clothes yet I don't see the indentation of his penis at all..."
>"Could it be...Maybe he's just small..."
>"Sinbad's always looked so large though..."
>Trying to start shit again.
I have already replied
>Fuck you and your fanboy war, seriously.
If you want to keep spamming such childish provocations just wait for another fanboy like you, so you can happily shit on each other. I'm not interested in people like you, and you aren't interested in people like me, let's not waste our energy and time.
>I'm talking about the two last chapters.
You don't like that Kouen turning out human bean and Morgiana not making him into mince meat made Hakuryuu crack and see revenge for the shit it is?
Can't say I agree at all.
>even if like Kouen, i do agree with some in that Hakuryuu lost his edge way too quickly. I wanted to see some healing with Mor before that.
Why would Mor of all people help to heal him? That's not something she should be forced to do, considering he killed the one she loves and all.
>Fuck you and your fanboy war, seriously.
People are having fun in this thread, you're the one who's coming in whining about the past arc. the only one starting shit is you. Fuck off.
I stopped reading Magi right after Alibaba was killed and I just marathoned the rest.
Welp, a lot has happened.
What are people's overall opinion of everything so far? It is interesting but I really don't like the futuristic aspect it has taken for some elements.
>Morg became Haku's house vessel while Baba was dead
I can see this happening and I will be disgusted.
Judar this right, looks is everything for a king
pff Alibaba is gonna job like a champ and get saved by Aladdin soon.
Here's the thing, Aladdin got too overpowered pre-timeskip, now he can only be introduced at the 11th hour or else it won't look like Alibaba had grown because we all know deep down Aladdin could do what he does in half the time.
Aladdin literally could using post-timeskip dimension magic.
He can turn yesterday into tomorrow and tomorrow into 3 weeks ago.
Alibaba's slow down will look like a lighter compared to a blowtorch.
He had 3 years to master it.
He learned it well enough to BTFO Judar within a year.
He probably won't be too OP because of muh morals or some reason.
But there isn't any excuse for him not to be capable of cheating/hacking except for general alibabafaggotry.
So, Baba's been touching Fish Empress a lot lately. Laying it on a little thick, eh?
look what happens when Koubun tries to do the same
>At this point, it will be more surprising if it doesn't happen.
>Spend years of your life pouring your blood, sweat and tears into nurturing this sweet and innocent girl into a strong leader of a massive nation
>Devote your entire being to her success, even going so far as to try and frame a literal reincarnation of god and blackmailing him into marrying said girl
>Put forth so much effort dedicated to her having a happy and prosperous life
>She thanks you with nothing but shunning and contempt
>Not only that, but even after all your hard years of dedication to the girl, she completely forgets you and instead falls for some faggot from an enemy land she's barely known for five minutes
>She even fires you and give the faggot your job
Being Ka Koubun is suffering.
I'm expecting Aladdin to get all philosophical about why he can't just throw every antagonist into the sun.
Like he doesn't want to interfere with the world past matters involving Alma Torran and would rather pass the torch to the 3 real magi and see Solomon's dream of a destiny humans control realized.
I think he's gonna be like a "sure I could solve all your problems, but teach a man to fish..." type sage character.
>I'm expecting Aladdin to get all philosophical about why he can't just throw every antagonist into the sun.
It's a shounen manga. That's not going to happen.
>I think he's gonna be like a "sure I could solve all your problems, but teach a man to fish..." type sage character.
I hope you realize how stupid (and unlikely) that sounds.
Solomon obviously could. Also Aladdin has Ugo (who never stopped researching) to push things along.
>It's a shounen manga. That's not going to happen.
Are you retarded? What does that even mean? Aladdin was already questioning whether or not he should interfere with the world anymore when he fought Judar.
After Ill Illah was gone he felt like he served his purpose, not only that, but he even went a step further and accepted the validity of the Black Rukh's right to exist.
There's no way he's actively fighting against Sinbad and can't beat him or anything like that, Alibabafags need to remember what the manga is about. If anything we'll probably end up returning to the same level of powergap from the beginning.
>There's no way he's actively fighting against Sinbad and can't beat him or anything like that
You're beyond retard. Even if Aladdin can use that magic, David already saw those powers when fighting Solomon. Now doubt he prepared a countermeasure for it (otherwise he's plan would be retarded).
I bet Aladdin already know his power won't be effective on Sinbad / David, which is why he chose to hide from the time being.
>David already saw those powers when fighting Solomon.
You are beyond retarded.
You can't prepare fucking countermeasures.
That's why it's fucking cheating magic.
Leave your fanfiction at the door. In that case Ugo would've prepared countermeasures for his countermeasures.
>Alibabafags need to remember what the manga is about.
This. It's about best girl. Always remember.
The Magi threads on /a/ suck so fucking bad with all this shipping shitposting.
Its not and never was funny.
>That's why it's fucking cheating magic.
It's just powerful magic. There's no reason there can't be a countermeasure. Plus David can see the future, so he should be expecting it. If you think he's not prepared for it, you needs some serous help.
It's not "just powerful magic". That's like comparing a calculator to a laptop and saying the laptop is "just a powerful calculator"
Obviously you speedread through the entire Alma Torran arc.
Whoops. I thought Alibaba used it in the Hakuryu fight. It was Hakuryu that was using it to prevent his sword being cut.
In which case, he hasn't used it at all then.
I wonder if it'll be enough to stand up to metal vessel users.
