Magi is described as an alternate take on the classic Arabian mythology 1001 Nights. It features a lot of the characters and setting and as a shounen adventure manga, you’d expect it to be full of wonder and fighting. What Magi is actually about is nationhood. Well, that and friendship, I guess. But if you know me well, then you’ll know that I’m a huuuuuuge sucker for things like an arc ending with setting up an elected body after our heroes topple a corrupt monarchy. Of course, it’s no LoGH, but this has enough politicking and cute characters to command my attention.
