Furthermore, this isn't just about religion, economics, science and politics.

To be fair, I wouldn't say "we all". I'm sure some schools do teach this kind of stuff, and I'm sure there are courses for it in college, but unless it was an advanced course, my schools never taught this, and I never needed a course for it in college. Still though, the concept is used often enough to understand it.

She's a religious fanatic. She wants Ill Ilah (religion/god) back and hates Solomon (progress, science) for destroying it (people think for themselves).
Going further, Sinbad represents our modern society (capitalism, globalism), which is being led and corrupted by Arba (religious beliefs).

 

I dunno if it's as easy to boil down as "Religion bad, progressive science good". And Sinbad showed signs of corruption since long before he and Arba ran into each other. All the way back at the end of the first Balbadd arc we knew he was walking the border between light and shadow. Now that he's leader of the most powerful organization in the world it makes sense that power would go to his head and push him off the deep end. A stray cat could have taken the place of Arba and I bet it still would have come down to this.

Chill already, Sinbad, oh god.

?? ? ?? ? ?? Do you just argue against things you've deluded yourself into thinking you've read?

I never said a thing about hair length, and I clearly said that Alibaba would love her either way (i.e. masculine or elegant).
Nevermind masculinity and femininity have no necessary ties to hair length like what the frig.
What you're saying doesn't even make sense and I hope English isn't supposed to be your native language, 'cause that'd be sad.
Seriously, what is wrong with people like you??

Woah. You must be Really Pissed by what an internet stranger has said about your comment to literally come back here and look up said response.
 

Anyways, at least you are right about something: English isn't my first language :'d Either way, you are derailing the comments section into a topic that isn't even related to the manga so like. Maybe stop? Dunno what's the big deal.

 

Holy Cow! This thing is even still going?

 

Yep! It's on its final arc, tho.

Actually I think that would be more sexist lmao Impossing an stereotype saying women have to have long hair to be considered as such. A girl can look pretty with short hair, so idk why you implying Mor isn't by saying "women don't exist to look pretty for dudes".

Did Alibaba even love Mor in the first place??? Iirc he was desperate for a GF and got thrilled by the insinuation/idea of Mor liking him and thus gaining a gf. Mor did confirm later on that she probably loved him but like lol what does one thing have to do with anything.

Anyways, I honestly like Mor with short hair more, I can see she could have got fed up with having long hair, as It gets in the way. Imo It fits her character. Reminds me of her choice of a metal vessel.

Arba is a yandere

You have no idea what yandere types even are... Arba's not a yandere. She's not even a yangire. She's just evil.

She's a religious fanatic. She wants Ill Ilah (religion/god) back and hates Solomon (progress, science) for destroying it (people think for themselves).

Nobody can figure out how to even fight Sinbad. All anyone can do is play his games and then run away when he presses.

Why dont Hakuryuu using his Belial? Its fuckin OP 

Arba is a yandere

Really epic chapter ,aladin telling him off felt really awesome.

So whats the deal with Arba? I don't understand what character archetype she is trying to represent. (Blind Devotion? Unrelentless Hatred?, what exactly is her goal?)

Wow...... Hakuryuu must be extremely fed up with this bitch.

This is what, his 3rd fight to the death with her?

Spoiler

Jesus, Arba is a boring villain. I just want her to go away.

Aladdin tells the gary stu to fuck off. Gary stu unavoidably gets mad and tries to kill him.

Called it.

Also loved how Sinbad was like "nah david wont take over me!" yet he is doing the exact same shit they all feared he would do. damn stues man.

From apparent FV to crazy assistant, can't say I blame you.

RIP Hakuryuu's chances in this rematch.

What do you mean exactly by "character's relationships"? I mean are you talking about Alibaba and Mor getting along/being pals like they used to, and your worries over whether or not this will be kept to sustain the consistency so far in the group of protagonists or are you thinking of other characters? If It is the first case, I doubt Shinobu won't keep them in good terms. It wouldnt make sense If they suddenly hated each other.

 

I meant I'm hoping for the same as you, pmuch! Wouldn't go so far as saying they'd come to hate each other -just hoping that Ohtaka doesn't decide to drop the relationship she's built for them given all the reasons she could. 

Considering Magi started out as Dungeon Diving Adventures to Politics With A Chance Of Shounen Action and ending up with Outmoded Economic Fun With Sinbad The Jingleblaster, I'm thinkin' Ohtaka Shinobu's team is way past fretting over any effort they built anything up to be. It's terrible planning on their part but I far prefer these characters developing out of their formulaic roles. Magi has achieved growing out of itself despite how graceless it's been, despite the series' history of rising and falling to its shounen riptide, and they've already butchered Alibaba and Morgiana's romance subplot so I wouldn't be too optimistic about them. I like the possibility of AliMor dispersing in the name of character growth, but I'm hoping Ohtaka sticks to sustaining her character's relationships. A total lack of consistency is tasteless. 

I'm still thinking AliMor is going to happen, just not going to be the properly developed canon ship some may have hoped for/expected.

Well, that aside, I guess Shinobu is into bestiality. I mean considering all the effort put into trying to make AliMor canon. You know. All that changing facts and stuff to make Alibaba look like the savior he wasn't (He did technically free mor and all the other slaves of the place were the first dungeon was, but I mean how Shinobu presented this later on and changed things a lil bit)
