    And Magi continues to raise it's game with each chapter.

    Aladdin is the man.

    Two possibilities.

    There is a giant slum somewhere. This is the good scenario.

    Those "absent" people are being drained of their MP for production of the magic tool exports and keeping the magic systems of the city running. This is the bad scenario.

    The plot, as you say, thickens.

    Screwing over more than 2/3 of the population so the rest can be all happy.

    Silly fantasy manga.

    Everyone knows you need at least 9/10 miserable for awesomeness.

    Turns out it's a little of column A and a little of column B.

    New chapter out:

    So yeah, this country is corrupt to the core.

    Well, as far as karmic justifications for Naziesque bullshit go, Evil Dumbledore's excuse is better than most.

    Potter fic writers ought to take notes. This is more or less what a Greater Good Dumbledore would be like.

    I'm downloading the first episode of Magi now! Can't wait to watch it.

    Okay, finally caught up. This manga is better than I expected.

    Which do you think is the most likely?
    - Aladdin manages to redeem the place.
    - The magicians gets horribly curbstomped when the much more hyped Kou Empire shows up. Probably involving Judal laughing at Evil Dumbledore's theory that magicians don't seek war and murder.
    - Aladdin redeems the place and then it gets curbstomped.
    Suffering is a fact of life. You survive if you find a reason to endure it.

    After the last few chapters, I don't think Aladdin and Titus are going to be getting much help from their classmates.

    Simbad arc starting now.

    Also, I'll give this to Evil Dumbledore. He is a foolish, foolish old man doing terrible things out of trauma, but in his own twisted way he truly cares and he is brave enough to stick to his guns.

    Damn you old man!

    Why do you have to show your cool side like that?

    I like that the rukh still reacts well to him, proving he really isn't doing any of this out of hatred or resentment.

    Well, the problem here is that the rift between mages and normal people will apparently lead to some Armageddon-level problems down the line if they aren't dealt with. And, well, I don't think the Kou invading will help much in that regard.

    I predict that this will all blow up in Evil Dumbledore's face somehow, giving him an "Oh God what I have I done?" moment, possibly before it kills him. There's be some fatal flaw in the design, or Al Sarmen sabotages the operation somehow. He's not a villain, at least I doubt it, but in this kind of story you can't turn people into livestock and not suffer some kind of karmic backlash.
