    Yeah, Matal may be a giant racist but he's got a good heart.

    Man, the Laem Empire is going to get it's ass kicked so bad. You can tell that a curbstomp is in their future just by looking at their face.
    I have no idea which will win between them and the mage country. Both are just sending off tons of death flags.


    Poor Aladdin. He just wants the world to be simple.:(

    War approaches!

    Also, Alibaba continues to be awesome while doing absolutely nothing onscreen.

    Magi continues to deal with complex issues without simplifying them.

    I mean, Naruto has done a good job with the complexity of war but Magi has been setting stuff up for a much more ideologically complex conflict.

    I like it a lot.

    Well, except the Kou Empire, since their ideology seems to come down to "We're the bad guys!! CONQUER THE WORLD!".

    Chapter 168: "We'll defeat these magicians easily! All they can do is levitate or bring a little bit of rain!"
    Hahaha no. The Laem empire guys seriously did not do their research and the high level Magnoshutatt magicians just tear through them. Scheherazade should have known better.

    That is just how manga war works. First you send a few waves of overconfident mooks to let your enemy show that it is awesome and mighty and also so they can exposit on how their tactics and powers work.

    Then the named characters step in.

    What do you mean "true"? It's not like there have been fake 200 years old magi.

    Just meant that so far we've only seen magi powers from Aladdin and Judal - one is completely raw talent with no training and the other is just playing around with his enemies. Seeing Scheherazade at work will be the first serious display of power from a magi and one with 2 centuries of experience to boot.

    So Laem got it's ass kicked in the first round, yet Scheherazade seems completely unconcerned. Yeah, I don't think this will be pretty. Personally, I fully expect the Fanali dungeon conqueror squad to show up an beat the stuffing out of the mages.

    I really kinda wonder what Alibaba will do, though. Not sure I see him joining the fight for the Laem side knowing his best friend is on the other side.

    Clearly he will dance his way through the battle into the city until he finds Aladdin.

    Which would be kinda funny.

    Alibaba: Excuse me, neutral observer coming through. Don't mind me, I'm just looking for my friend.

    Mages: Look, a guy with a sword! Get him!

    Alibaba: *beats them up with magic fire swordsmanship* No, seriously, I'm neutral! I'm not even from Laem, I just hang out there!

    Evil Dumbledore got schooled.

    These past two chapters have been pretty good at showing the good and bad of both sides.

    I'm looking forward to the Kou Empire's arrival.

    Aladdin is taking off his limiters.
