Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic is a Japanese manga/graphic novel written by Ohtaka Shinobu. The story takes place in an ancient old world. The regions looks like Middle Eastern countries. The main character Aladdin is a "magi" which means he has the strongest magic power among the people. Aladdin travels around the world and that's where he meets Alibaba, a young man who wants to discover "Dungeon" which is a place where you get lots of gold and treasures, as well as a "Djinn" which is a magic spirit/demon who gives you magic power and becomes your ally. Both Aladdin and Alibaba become friends and go to the dungeon. After that they also deal with some slavery issues. I love how the characters are relatable and deal with historical issues that happened in real life. I think the characters are well developed so far and the story is very interesting and entertaining to read. The best part of this manga is that it shows an ancient Middle Eastern mythology and culture which is kind of fun to learn about. It also kind of reminds me of the Disney movie Aladdin where they also have Djinn and the story is based in the Middle East, but I think this story is a lot even better than Disney. I loved this manga and I highly recommend it for any manga fan especially for those of you who love magic and mythology stories. Rating: 5.5/10

I saw the anime, so I gave this a try. I love the manga so much more! Really fun story, and I like the story and time period, and it's funny too.
