the story took place in a world where slavery was common. gigantic ruins called Dungeon had appeared one day. it reached into the sky and was filled with treasures. many had entered but few came out alive, and those who managed to survive became king. Aladdin was a young boy with no memory of his past. together with his new friend Alibaba, they traveled across the world with nothing but the clothes they had on and a magic flute containing a Djin.
despite the childish artwork and young main character, the series wasn't exactly targeted at young viewers. it was filled with enough complexity and cruelty to be frightening. the story continued where Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic (2012) left off. Aladdin was separated from his friends during the journey to Magnostadt, a kingdom ruled by magicians. from there onward, they had a chance to become stronger and more independent. Alibaba went to the Reim Colosseum while Morgiana traveled to the dark continent to uncover the story behind Falanis' dissappearence.
