So my friend introduced me to Magi a bit when she did a Morgiana cosplay for a con last year (which I might get to steal!
), and I just recently finally started watching it because it was on Netflix I was bored and I'd wanted to get into it. Yes, I tried reading it first but the beginning of the manga was so confusing and the translation I was reading wasn't even decent [idk who did it but it wasn't from here] so I gave up for a while until I found the show.
When I got to the end of the second season I was like "No... No, there has to be more!" so I started reading the manga. I started from like chapter 218 or so and got caught up all in one night (largely because most of the chapters were Haku at one point and I love that idiot so much it's unhealthy).
As I was reading, I pulled some of my favorite bits from the Hakuryuu vs. Gyokuen fight because they were just ridiculous or hilarious.
This is one of the few reasons I call Gyokuen "Queen of the Face of Death" because no lie that was one of the most frightening things I've seen. O.O
YASSS! I yelled very loudly when I saw this and got myself a few concerned looks. Whoops.
Face of Death 2
LITERALLY THE BIGGEST WTF MOMENT FOR ME OUT OF EVERYTHING I'VE SEEN AND WATCHED. I had to just stare in shock at my screen for a little while since I just couldn't process what was happening... I still shudder when I think about it. Poor Hakuryuu. >.<
Face of Death 3. I think I just stopped asking what the frick Gyokuen's mental issues were because there really just wasn't a point anymore omfg.
While the whole vampire bite thing weirded me out a little bit, I couldn't help cheering Haku on as he finally got a bit of an upper hand on her.
Those were just some particular highlights I bothered to screencap while I was reading. The Alibaba x Mor little bit was adorable, as was the somewhat random hook-up of Toto and Olba (another thing I've decided not to question because it's super cute).
What were some of y'all's favorite moments?
