Chapter 302 is out on gook scans:
Alibaba suffering continues in the form of Sinbad shenanigans.
Sinbad you dick.
>you shouldn't meddle in the affairs of other countries Sinbad
>so let me take Koumei, one of the masterminds, out of exile even after Kou tried to take over the world
>please tell the whole world that Kou isn't planning to take over the world again Sinbad. If it's you, they'll believe your words
>but Alibaba, you told me not to meddle in affairs of other countries :^)
He played him like A DAMN FIDDLE!
One thing I'm confused about. Why did Sinbad decide to screw Alibaba over now as opposed to before? What difference would it make? Couldn't he have stopped Baba in his tracks when he first came back, or when he was in Kou? Why now?
Am I missing something?
>>please tell the whole world that Kou isn't planning to take over the world again Sinbad. If it's you, they'll believe your words
So what happened if Sinbad didn't do anything? The countries agreed but then they all disagreed?
Alibaba should have realized that the world isn't as optimistic as he is. Having Kou become powerful again so soon would freak people out and put them on guard. He went to so many places to establish the teleportation circles but that also made people more suspicious because those circles can also be used for military purposes and Kou are the ones who know how they work. He shouldn't have been too greedy and just went to just 1 or 2 countries.
I don't doubt that Sinbad/Arba are responsible for the rumor circulating but Baba's words and his greed came back to bite him.
It was the timing I think. Alibaba going to so many places to establish teleportation circles made the world anxious since Kou are the ones with the knowledge of those circles. They can literally transfer an army in an instant. I guess Alibaba never thought that not everyone trusts Kou as much as he does. It'll be even worse if the public knows Koumei's behind it. All SInbad had to do was wait for Alibaba to shoot himself in the foot and then use Baba's words so he doesn't have to do anything.
Everyone backs down super hard from the proposals due to rumors going around that Kou is just doing this to rearm themselves for a war. Using transportation circles could lead to easy invades for entire armies (which is totally true). It's heavily implied that Sinbad or someone on his side started this war. As a fellow trading company leader, he sees them as rivals.
tl;dr: Sinbad pulled a keikaku doori
If you've read Sinbad no Bouken, Sinbad is a dick but he follows rules because he's a merchant. He'll find a way to twist the rules to his benefit but he'll follow it to the letter. He got outsmarted by Maader and became a slave/got mindbroken because it was part of the contract. Compare this to Alibaba who just asks for favors without regards to contracts. Like asking Sinbad to delay the debt even if that's what the contract said.
If he said he won't meddle in the affairs of other countries, he technically won't. Technically. That's why he only joined Kou's civil war after Hakuryuu joined the IA. It gave him the technicality that he can interfere.
Putting it into perspective:
Hakuryuu killed Alibaba
Hakuryuu "stole" Morgiana
Hakuryuu screwed up Kou and left it for good before disappearing.
Alibaba gets revived and has to fix up Kou's mess which was primarily caused by him.
>He shouldn't have been too greedy and just went to just 1 or 2 countries.
Nah, I think if he only negotiated with one or two countries, then other countries around the world would grow jealous, distrustful and suspicious of those countries. I can very easily see an international conflict arising from such convenient technology.
Wouldn't that be better? If they become jealous, then they'll approach him on their own accord and will want Kou to place teleportation circles on their country. Let them come to you.
>He can talk the others into accepting the business proposal again.
They won't though.
They have both their citizens and Sinbad pressuring the rulers. A simple "We are not gonna invade you, honest" is not gonna make the cut.
I guess that's true. But then again, if they weren't first approached by a Kou representative to negotiate any terms for trading the technology, they could have made their own assumptions for why Kou only chose a couple of specific countries ahead of everyone else.
>A simple "We are not gonna invade you, honest" is not gonna make the cut.
Of course, I'm not saying it should be this simple, he could try to do his alibaba thing or just get by and not so slowly gather back their confidence by doing his business plan diligently.No need to make crazy profit, just enough to pay the loan.
What do you expect when the man she loves dies? Haku was the only other guy who liked her and we don't know what went down those 2 years.
Shit is realistic you retarded ship fag.
Dunno but it could be worst, Alibaba face show worries but not despair. Also the members of the seven seas look genuinely bothered by this situation, it's not like the entire world is totally against Kou.
With the appearance of media device last chapter I wonder if it's not time for some heavy propaganda.
Alibaba assumed the entire world is as optimistic and forgiving as he is. You know those comments in magi threads where people pointed out that it's silly for everyone to just accept that Kou has reformed? Looks like Ohtaka was actually thinking the same.
The manga seemed so happy after the timeskip because it was mainly from Baba's POV. Now that we know how the world reacts to what he's doing, the weaknesses of his plan appeared. Whether it's because of Sinbad or Arba starting the rumor, it doesn't matter. Alibaba should have seen this coming but looks like he actually expected the rest of the world to think "Kou's okay now guys, trust me. They cool"
oh yeah because it makes sense to fall in love with the man who killed the man you loved! .stop being autistic, If you believe that makes sense in any world then you're just delusional. I bet you believe that Sakura ending up with sasuke was also logical
it is when random threads i've popped into have people bothered by out of place continuous segments that are given like it's for side characters
or that a similarly out of place segment of chapters for a "main char" is like it could be ignored as if it was for a side char
a lack of "chosen character" wasn't even why i dropped it as well
Oh so you're a fish fag who will accept any logic just to make your ship work
>I was actually expecting Koumei to betray everyone and use his teleportation magic to fuck shit up
I don't blame them for not giving Kou easy access to their countries since even I don't fully trust those chinks, specially after seeing Koumei's secret dungeon of horrors.
All Sinbad needs to do is reveal that he lied and he hasn't removed Zepar from her brain. I'm hoping for another "Hey Alibaba" scene again with a mind controlled Kougyoku. Even better if it happens just when it seems like Baba-Fish is gonna come true and their kiss gets interrupted.
Alibaba knows the leaders. The leaders and Alibaba trust one another and we only saw their interactions so it looks like everything was going fine. The people on the other hand apparently are more on guard and have common sense.
>thinking someone is made about shipping
No one cares about the shipping. I honestly hope Ali ends up alone because he's a shit character too. I just hate when mangaka starts using plain stupid logic and force shit. Like Sakura, what women would marry a guy who tried to kill her twice.
Magi writing wasn't all that great to begin with in the first place. and neither was character logic but it seems like the mangaka now is just writing shit.
>Based Sinbad BTFOing baba
>worst girl cries like a bitch
>shipperfag tears (from shit-tier ships to boot)
10/10 chapter as usual
I fucking love Magi
What exactly is going on right now?
From this thread I'm getting the idea that upon returning Alibaba went to Kou and realized that their country was basically in ruins. So he decided to do some diplomacy shit and try to fix things. However something happened and he needed help from Sinbad but Sinbad said "lol I'm evil" and Alibaba thought to himself that Sinbad might be evil.
Is that about right?
>However something happened and he needed help from Sinbad but Sinbad said ''Alright.'' and Alibaba thought to himself that ''Sinbad is really a nice guy''. But then Baba didn't think about the consequences of his plans and now shit got complicated, he went to Sinbad for help but Sinbad said ''lol no''.
Fixed for you
Yes, I took a look into raws and noticed it. It's quite vague in the english version but in JP it makes more sense.
Koi is strictly romantic, but it does carry implications of adolescence, immaturity, ignorance, and selfishness. It's similar to infatuation or a crush, while ai is a true love. For example, Kougyoku's feelings for Sinbad were koi, while Hakuryuu's feelings for Morgiana are ai.
He was pretty broken at that point, he had killed Baba, his edge bro was dead as well and he had ruined his family and country.
Mor was a bit of a cunt actually, she could have waited a bit before telling that to the guy so he could catch a break.
I would say that is the most importnat aspect here since before Morgiana was too selfless, first being, well, a slave, then trying to live for others sake. This is much needed step for her to embrace her own personal desires.
He's coaching Alibaba. By making him actually do shit that a great merchant would do but later make him realize that sticking with Kou is useless, Sinbad is trying to get him to join his alliance instead.
Sinbad wants the D
Please let Arbakuei be responsible for fucking over Kou by being the one who spread the rumors. I miss her antics. Imagine her strutting over to Kou like she owns it because she's Sinbad's adviser and has come to collect the debt she knows they can't pay.
When someone keeps asking favors from you, you'd eventually go "fuck it, let the douche handle his own problems."
The one year extension is a pretty big compromise already. It's Alibaba's fault for not thinking this through.
Aladdin: Alibaba, I have been living these last three years with Hakuryuu and have become very close to him.
Baba: Oh it's great that you are good friends!
Aladdin: Ehhh... Well...
Mor already has a new husbando.
I don't know why I like him so much.
I just wanna see it through. I really loved this manga when I picked if up, so I wannpt to be with it til the end. Even though I haven't really been reading the updates.
I was reading to see that brown skin guy get with the trap boy though and last chapter they looked like some happy family so i guesss i can stop reading now.
I barely care about ships but seeing the way you fist yourself in rage whenever someone brings up Fishbaba makes me want to post about them a lot more.
>All this ship/gayship faggotry in this thread
Stop derailing the thread with your whack image dumps.
I enjoy seeing autists froth at the mouth from Fishbaba posts.
Male primogeniture. Kou's line of succession seems to prioritize men so they probably just kept trying for a boy until they got him.
Or judging by the filename, they could just like to fuck a lot and ended up with six kids as a result.
But what about the mother? Why would any woman want to put themselves through that kind of agony multiple times? Their vaginas would be wrecked.
There may not be much in the way of preventative birth control. And I can't see someone like Kougyoku being okay with terminating a pregnancy.
Or maybe she prioritizes her country or Alibaba's bloodline over her own body. Or she just wants a big loving family because she felt excluded from hers as a child.
I mean, sure magic exists and I don't doubt that it could be used to help mitigate the pain, and there's the importance of royal bloodline. But what about something like adoption? Instead of putting your body through that kind of excruciating experience so many times just to get a son, why not simply select a male heir by adopting one? If they're named as the heir apparent and there are witnesses it, no one could really argue with the claim.
Can't wait for Judar to come and help Baba fuck Sinbad's shit up because just because.
>there's the importance of royal bloodline
You answered your own question. It may be unpleasant for the mother, but carrying on the imperial bloodline is typically the higher priority.
And we don't know what kinds of medical magic are available. Sedation and healing the mother's body postpartum are plausible given the magic we've already seen. And it likely wouldn't be hard to treat the morning sickness, mood swings, aches and pains, etc. associated with pregnancy. An empress getting the best care possible could very well have an easy, comfortable pregnancy.
This, he should of realized something was up when they revealed to him they were trying to bring back the dead and those other wacked out experiments There's no doubt in my mind those Kou want to go back to the world conquest thing they were. I mean who wouldn't? They were all powerful, they were constantly getting new slaves/rape toys to do with as they wished, their culture was the only culture, their citizens were well fed, well off and borderline hedonistic. It's like they were America, who wouldn't wanna be America? Especially since now, they're bordering on being shitty third world countries tier or Europe.
But they don't need transfer circles in every country. Really they just need transfer circles in a location where it would be easy to move produce before it spoils. If they had a transfer circle out in international waters, on a boat or a trading platform, they wouldn't be affected.
If only there was a country that wasn't part of the IA that previously had relations with Kou, and also resided on a mobile island that could not be found.
Calling it now, we're going to glorious nippon next
Nah, the Kou right now are really reformed. Alibaba's still stupid to assume that the whole world will instantly accept it though. Regardless if it's the truth or not, how the world sees something still factors in the equation of what you do especially if you're doing business.
From what I heard nips say "ai" very rarely though. Most of the use "koi". In fiction therefore, "Koi" is used for both endgame and non-endgame ships, so the lack of "ai" doesn't mean much.
I saw someone theorize that Koumei is his spy due to his subdued reactions in recent chapters. In the new gook scan he only went all "..." to the news but otherwise didn't react too strongly.
Would be a pretty big asspull though.
We know the second Zepar recipient, it's
Dum dum dum
No, there's two.
Unless >>139606762 is right. But Sinbad said he could distribute his rukh to a maximum of three *people*.
Awsnaps, new FishBaba pic GET. Thanks, anon.
Suffering was the MC all along! Ohtaka, you genius!
Blessed be the ones that worship the Fish Empress.
But did the Fog Troupe number exactly 40? It could just be my autism, but I want these characters to accurately reflect their original Arabian Nights counterparts. Aladdin has his genie, Sinbad has his sailor stories, I want Alibaba to have a secret hideout with the "Open Sesame" password and 40 thieves.
Alibaba can't lead anything. He had the chance to be king but pussied out to be a democratic cuck. "L-lets all rule together, right?" and then he gets bossed around by a woman and a 12yo kid.
It probably was exactly 40 at one point, yeah.
A man of taste this Baba, I tell you
Morg a jealous cunt who can't accept Fishbaba is perfect.
Why can't we be friends
And FishBaba's eldest.
I think that's a girl. So all of FishBaba's kids are girls except for the shota.
Then again I ain't sure because it could just be a very pretty boy. Like Kougyoku's brother Kouha.
And the twins get confused for each other all the time.
Suffering must continue.
Who's the prettiest boy in Magi?
It's a shame Fish completely lost her yandere side.
Keep your sick fantasies to yourself. Baba a pure maiden.
>not wanting to fuck this pure maiden
Are you ok?
But anon, Baba is for suffering, not fucking.
>Baba was gonna save Kou and catch a fish
It was nice while it lasted. I should've known better, Alibaba suffering is what makes Magi, Magi.
But he gets a 40% suffering reduction because it's with Fish.
I'd totally let Fish peg me.
...huh, I guess that's kinda what love feels like. Now I feel even more pathetic.
Only a complete moron would refuse to let Fish shove things up their ass.
Actually he already sexualizes himself.
I hate this. Fish would never humiliate him by freaking out and refusing to peg him. She accepts his weird fetishes.
>dungeons gets adjusted to your power level
since when? What happens if they're loads of people in it
Really? I know they don't clean and redraw onomatopoeias but that seems really fast for scans of this quality.
>Sinbad made it seem like Kou is trying to take over the world
This is pretty dumb though.
I don't see why anyone that knows Alibaba would care about Sinbad's shenanigans. Reim has no reason to trust Sinbad over Alibaba, Yamu and Sharrkan while being super loyal to Sinbad still have no reason to distrust Alibaba.
I can get Partevia since Sinbad is controling everything but that's it.
It varies a lot. The raw schedule is pretty inconsistent. Sometimes they come in on Wednesday and there's no wait. This week they came in on Sunday. We do our best to be efficient but sometimes there's just nothing we can do about how long it takes.
Currently we have four cleaners and two redrawers, so that part rarely takes over 12 hours. But we're short a few staff members (typesetter and QCer), so some of the steps after that tend to take longer.
>ali baba as a thief
never happened, he was a normal guy that stumbled upon a lair of theives, jewed their treasure and had his super fit slave girl kill them when they came for him.
This hope of mine ended when they said this was the last arc.
He might name the last chapter 1001 just for kicks though
We're not in dire straits or anything, but we would appreciate a little more help if anyone could offer it. We've been trying to find another QCer for a few months now, since our current guy is pretty busy, but it's a hard position to fill.
>"Unhappy girl!" cried Ali Baba and his son, "what have you done to ruin us?"
>"It was to preserve you, master, not to ruin you," answered Morgiana. "See here," opening the false merchant's garment and showing the dagger; "see what an enemy you have entertained! Remember, he would eat no salt with you, and what more would you have? Look at him! he is both the false oil merchant and the Captain of the Forty Thieves."
The boss of the thieves was pretending to be a merchant and Ali Baba fell for it and tried to entertain him. He had no clue what was actually going on.
We have some tutorials on our recruitment forum, if you'd ever like to learn typesetting or cleaning.
And we get a few applications every week, but the supply of applicants doesn't always match up with the demands of our current projects. And you'd be surprised how many people apply initially but never turn in their tests.
>This Morgiana can't even protect from an angsty edgy teenager
It was Baba's and Aladin fault. As soon as Judal told them Hakuryuu had gone full edge they rushed on the flying carpet and left her behind.
To be fair if Mor was there she would have been killed in an instant. She's nowhere near the level of a magi or Vessel user.
She would have been more of a liability than an asset.
Thanks for the link, I'll check it out.
Hopefully it all works out for you guys. I know you get a lot of shit from some fans about the waiting, but you're still one of the best scanlators out there in terms of quality.
It actually does cover all 1001 nights. Scheherazade broke her stories into smaller parts so she'd only tell a little of one each night and would always end in the middle. So there aren't 1001 stories, but however many there are are broken up into 1001 parts.
Thanks, that means a lot. And I don't blame people for getting annoyed. It's frustrating to wait on things you're eager to see, especially when the release schedule is so up in the air.
Then everything's fine, there's no NTR.
I hope Kougyoku will find happiness by the end of all this. It's not even about shipping but Alibaba is the only one who's willing to help her and be a friend when she needs it so she'd probably be happiest with him.
I'm a monogamy-fag. For each person there's only one relationship that they can call their strongest and it should always be with their spouse.
Friendship would be better than multiple wives.
If you ask me polygamy is the weaker of the two. The strength of a relationship depends on multiple factors, one of which is time.
If you're going to have a romantic relationship at all you may as well invest everything you can into it to achieve the most you possibly can out of it. By not fully committing you're preventing yourself from achieving the ultimate goal that romantic relationships strive for.
Polygamy is a pointless endeavor. A purposeful waste of potential that only serves to satisfy the most basic of needs. To let yourself be nothing more than an animal is the mark of true weakness.
>denying he's an animal
having one partner for your entire life is stupid, and its evolutionary suicide
mental involvement is just as much as a selfish and base desire as anything fleshy
Don't get all high and mighty just because you value your emotional boner getting 1 on 1 attention just because others prefer variety around their real boners
To call yourself an animal is to deny the very strength that allows you to make such a claim.
The human mind is more complex than any of us can even imagine. It's for that reason that we're so different from all other life on this planet.
If you want to call yourself an animal then you'll understand if it makes me question your self-esteem.
>The human mind is more complex than any of us can even imagine
>what is neurology?
>what is philosophy?
>what is psychiatry?
Since when is /a/ so filled with fish fags? It seemed like only yesterday that the closest thing we had to waifufags were the fanalis worship threads.
Rolling for fish.
To be honest i'm Morgfag at first, but I'm become Fishfag since Baba kill and this >>139598346 happen.
I'm pretty sure Morg already settle down with Haku in those 3 years.
I'm not mad since both Fish and Baba has a lot of similarities, they perfect for each others.
Also, Morg first kiss already stolen by Haku. Fuck.
How can Judar help with muh politics and muh economy?
He solves problems by destroying shit and trolling, but I doubt his trolling is good enough for these particular problems.
when did he stab baba in the back? If you referring to the teleporter deal it was just a smart move by Sin. They're business rivals now babas gotta grow up and realize not everyone sees the world with rainbow coloured glasses like him
It was a smart move by a business rival, and Baba's inexperience and naivety allowed it to happen, I'm not denying that. Sin still screwed him over, which is not something friends do, that's what I'm saying.
Sins already pulled enough punches for baba and he's sick of his idealistic shit. Knowing baba he'll probably shrug it off and try and find another way. Neither of them will take it personally
I'm sorry, anon. I'm just a pathetic little shipper.
Is touching his bare shoulder while almost naked herself more or less lewd?
It's lewder than giant naked genies.
Sinbad spews more idealistic bullshit about creating a world without war or poverty than Baba ever could, then turns right around and makes it impossible for Kou to dig itself out of the hole he shoved them into by 180ing the world's economy. After what he did to Kougyoku with Zepar and all the little clashes they've had so far this arc, this will probably be the final straw for Baba. He can't just keep shrugging this off, otherwise the plot will never get anywhere.

and where does groping baba's thigh on the train fall on the lewdness scale?
yep, Im calling out whoever translated those name in the original, I mean what the fuck? Scheherazade? Shahrazad, simple. Sinbad? even Sindabad would be more accurate.
Calm down, anon. This is a christian image board.
They almost look like CLAMP protags in this one (mood-wise).
Is playing in the bath together lewd enough?
I think by that point they're pretty much married. Also hell yeah, i didn't have this FishBaba pic.
