Magi (2012) felt like a combination of Sword Art Online (2012) and Mirai Nikki (2011). it was very fantasy like, interesting enough to be impressively captivating. the plot kept the story moving forward in a fast pace. the fights were exaggerated in a bearable level, the plot was also highly predictable. although Magi (2012) was hardly sophisticated it was nonetheless fun.
