aslfj *faints at the epicness of those cosplays*


For me it was fanart in Pixiv! XD

Wherever I went, there was Fanart of Magi everywhere [that's when magi barelly came out]
but I payed no mind since most where YAOI fanart and I though "uugh it must be one of those yaoi mangas"

So I didn't budge.

Then...that's when I saw some artist and friends in DA post art of magi or write journals of it with their reaction/first impression.

And so I thought " Well...I guess...it wouldn't hurt to look"

but then I forgot....

So months went by


Then one day as I was browsing the Manga library in Mangafox...I clicked "M"
and looked at the list...and there it was "MAGI"

I was hesitant...but I felt that I had to click it...so I did

before I Started reading though...I wanted to make sure it wasn't a trap *at that time I forgot to look at tags which basically gives away if it's a Shonen-ai or yaoi manga OR not*


And when I browsed, I found at the mangaka was the creator of Sumomomo Momomo! *I love that manga! Even if it was a few chapters that I read here and there on the magazine "YEN"

HECK, I WENT BACK AND CLICKED "Ch.1" and began reading

and then I couldn't find myself stopping!!

I read and read and read some more! and then it was bed time and I couldn't stop thinking about magi!

Morning came up, first thing I did was turn the computer on and read ---then it was school time and when I came back---I turned it on again and continued reading!

Until finally I caught up!

Gawd, I scolded myself for not giving in earlier and read such wonderful captivating story!!!

After that, I eagerly awaited for the next released!
Everyday, I'd check!
At school, I'd check!
I'd sneak in the middle of the night to turn the laptop on to Check!

haha. Honestly, I can't believe I got so inlove with it!

I guess..Magi also is the reason what led me to sign up here. XDDD

Without Magi, I wouldn't met you guys!

The fanart on Zerochan.

I haven't enjoyed any new manga or anime over the last few years. It's so hard to find something that's good, and when I thought I did, it eventually flopped (like Tsubasa, Soul Eater, etc). This manga has the visual style I crave (like attractive male characters, for one!), and I actually *care* what happens to the characters. In short, I get finally to fangirl again ;p

(I really hope this manga stays good until the end!)

I was browsing Pixiv.net for updates from some of my favorite artists and one of them had posted Magi fanart. Not knowing of it at the time and thinking that the characters looked interesting (how often to you see a series set in ancient Arabia/Middle East these days?), I searched up the translated text that the fanart was tagged under, found scans, and later on, Chinese raws to read. :3

Speaking of manga with unique, Middle Eastern settings, do you guys know Shoukoku no Altair? Beautiful (REALLYBEAUTIFULDEARGOD) artwork, interesting plot, GORGEOUS ARTWORK DJKFHGKDFH (hello, I'm a sucker for  very intricate & detailed works).
I learned about this because fanart kept popping up in pixiv and I'm a very curious dude so I used my Google-translation-fu and learned the name of the title. After that it's just hoping and searching for scanlated works and TA-DAH!
It's a bit disappointing though, that the scanlators release one chapter a month since that's how it is originally, a monthly series. They've done up to volume 5 but volume 9 (or more) is already available OTL

When looking for new manga to read, I usually look at the artworks first (who doesn't? :P) but after all, the story should also be really good. Both Magi and SnA have GREAT story lines but imho, SnA tops magi in art. Maybe because Magi is weekly so less time to polish fine details? IDK... anyway I love Magi with all my heart has to offer right now.


I was and still am on the verge of asking szj to let me help them with SnA IF ONLY! IF OOOONLYYYYY I don't have schoolwork........OTLllll 


@Leaf *u* I always find myself staring at the artwork page after page
@Aoi Shame not a lot of people know about it BUT MAKES SEARCHING FOR FANS AND BRAINWASHING PEOPLE ALL THE MORE EXCITING!

I agree. If it's about the artwork it's probably because Magi is weekly and SnA monthly.
Though I have to say that I just love Magi's style.<3

SnA goes straight to my reading list.^-^
Next time I'm bored I know what to do.

thx for mentioning it hanerzz ;D
