he can kill sinbad

After that, he will try to kill other king.

Lelouch made himself the symbol of evil and then break the chains of hate with Requiem Zero.

Hakuryuu decided to kill evil with evil, so what's left is still evil. What will he do after he kills Kouen

he can kill sinbad

The manga-ka gave up a chance of writing an interesting conflict between two forces of whom neither are necessarily in the right or the wrong for the sake of having the tired old, pedestrian good versus evil fight. Boring.

This above all else. I understand that Hakuryuu's methods may be wrong and that at some points he has used his own selfishness to create reasons for conflict but at the core of his struggle, Hakuryuu is someone who has seen the truth where no one else saw it and acted where no one else was willing. One of the most disgusting and interesting things about Magi is the whole cycle of the white Rukh. Those who are "good" follow the cycle set before them and are rewarded by rejoining the cycle. Those who are "evil" fall into depravity and escape the cycle. The cycle itself isn't necessarily good but it's what people have believed for so long and people aren't willing to change. It also doesn't help that those who fall into depravity usually get somewhat twisted in the process. The isolation and disillusionment they feel at the point of depravity does that to them. They're not necessarily wrong but they have the characteristics of textbook villains. I hope the author adds more nuance to this struggle and doesn't end up making the side of the white Rukh the unchallenged (in ideology) victor. 

I made plants grow in their brains does kind of move him to the Wrong category

OKAY, IT'S OFFICIAL.

Hakuryuu is an as*.

Go wreck him up Koen. Basically, anyone go punch that kid :v

Hakuryuu is not right, but is not wrong either...

Alibaba is not wrong, but is not right either...

Okay, I admit I am conflicted :/

Thing is, Sasuke didn't die, no matter how much he should have done...

There was little reason for Sasuke to die. Especially when you consider that he was actually insane, and in spite of that, was still a core reason that the war was won. Humorously enough, Sasuke actually had better reasoning throughout his own conflict than Hakuryuu has had in his.

 

From the time Sasuke learned the truth until the time he snapped he only had negative influences surrounding him, including the emotional instability brought on by the sharingan. Hakuryuu had everything set in place to stop him from going down this path, especially alone, he even had the chance to turn back completely. Not only did he stomp past all of those, he actually proceeded to get to the point where he craps on his original motivations and simply uses them as a means to justify his destructive urges.

Hakuryuu is not right, but is not wrong either...

Alibaba is not wrong, but is not right either...

Okay, I admit I am conflicted :/

I'm not sure where you are getting, "Hakuryuu is not right, but is not wrong either..." from?

 

Currently Hakuryuu is driven solely by anger, his desire for revenge, and his desire to cause destruction. He is continuously manipulating logic and facts to validate his impulses and choices. Jafar noticed that the instant Hakuryuu destroys one target he'll direct his attention to something or someone else, even inventing reasons to make people his enemy, essentially until the world is bathed in blood because his heart has become filled with black desires.

 

I understand how in places Hakuryuu's arguments make a kind of sense, but individual arguments mean little in the greater context they are applied, including the light of a person's full intentions and decisions.

As to Alibaba. . . yeah. This has been a long running point of development for Alibaba throughout the series. He has a difficult time fully shaping his motivations. This isn't actually particularly strange for people in general, and the reality is that many other characters in Magi do this at one time or another, but the series highlights this 'personal confusion' and 'uncertainty' in Alibaba's life to showcase his human flaws and more clearly display his personal growth and character development as time passes.

 
About the f**king time!! I hope he get all the rainbows and unicorns out of his system already!!

ch.48, really?

Alibaba if your fire can't beat plants then I really don't know what you can beat.

Shame Haku is going to have to die because she wont kill off alibaba even though he is completely useless. Hope she doesnt sasuke him on this and have him follow through on his conviction even if it ends in him dying hopefully by the hands of morgianna

I hope Hakuryuu kills Kouen. I want to see that arrogant prick get his comeuppance. I mean Kouen hasn't done anything too bad I guess, but I'd still enjoy watching that smirk get wiped off his face.  Come to think of it, even more so with Sinbad, I hope Hakuryuu kills him too.

That was a pretty bad ass way of  turning it around. hehehe

 

captain-kirk-neil-degrasse-tyson-bad-ass

He's not trying to manipulate hakuryuu , he's trying to make him realize the mistakes he's making.

Thin line between "trying to "convince" someone agree with your sense of value" and "manipulating someone."

Initially I wrote "trying to make someone agree with your sense of value." See how shifting your point of view, or simply changing how you word things can change interpretation a whole lot?

 

Like snowwolf89 said below, Alibaba himself might not even realize it.

For a second I though Hakuryuu was actually about Sinbad.

Everything Hakuryuu is saying about Alibaba makes sense, for example, about how he shines too brightly and ends up pulling others towards what he thinks is right. (Concern for a friend does not mean Alibaba isn't manipulative. Think about a manipulative parent who is also genuinely concerned about their children going down the "wrong way". And of course, Alibaba probably didn't think of himself as being manipulative. And Alibaba isn't a bad person for trying to steer Hakuryuu; he's just concerned with different things as Hakuryuu.)

 

And I can see how Hakuryuu would want to eliminate Alibaba (still, for old time's sake, usually people would let their friends go and warn them to kill or be killed in the future, you know.) Of course, it isn't as if Hakuryuu is also trying to turn the world and others around him to what he thinks is right, albeit in a different way. So you could direct what Hakuryuu said about Alibaba back to Hakuryuu himself, as he heads the path he's made for himself. It should be really interesting to see how Hakuryuu's position develops.

Actually.....  Hak is right...  Alibaba was wrong.  What he was doing was correct, it was for the survival of the kingdom.  I agree with what he was doing, but nothing was righteous about it.  He froze and dug and found a way to try and manipulate Hak, and Hak saw directly through him.  I must say Hak's description of, Alibaba's character was very excellent.  Straight down to a T.

Hakuryuu is not right , you are doing the same thing that he did to Alibaba , twisting words.

Alibaba since the beggining of the chapter is worried that hakuryuu might have changed for worse , when he realizes hakuryuu did change he tries to appeal to Haku's human side , his tender side whatever you want to call it. 
He's basically saying this:
 "Hakuryuu , if you don't care about people you don't know(balbadd citizens) you might consider that your sister will be in Kouen's side , since you once told me you love her most in the world , you should realize she will be in a hard position and that she will not come unharmed for this"

He's not trying to manipulate hakuryuu , he's trying to make him realize the mistakes he's making.

 

Sadly, he won't die...because he has SInbad-level Plot Armour.

Hmm yeah...cause alphonse dying in mid FMA would make a lot of sense right? same thing goes for alibaba , he's deuteragonist, second only to Aladdin(When they are together he even surpasses aladdin , but that's because their characters are meant to be like that , the magi is the one that guides the king , it's his support , the king is the king)... If you don't like it then it's your opinion but it won't change dude.

You...I hate you, so you must die.

 

You...I despise you, so you must die.

 

You...I like you, so you must die.

 

You...I hold you dear like family, so you must die.

 

.....Derp.

If this was a Medaka Box reference then many internets to you friend.

Kinda off-topic so spoiler it goes.

Spoiler

So, this'll be a little bit lenghtly, but...

Spoiler

...so I suppose it all just boils down to me thinking you're using the word "plot" incorrectly here.

I... don't really see your point here.


Kinda off-topic so spoiler it goes.

Spoiler

I'm holding the idea that Hakryuu is going to mind control Alibaba into submission, he'll then tell Aladdin that he agrees to help kill Kouen.

Everyone will show up and be confused but one or two people will realize what's going on. Perhaps he'll be able to mindfuck even one more person before they back out.

 

I simply like this idea under the circumstances that Alibaba becomes cool while mindcontrolled.

That would have an aftereffect. Alibaba knows  the same Magoi manipulation technique Sinbad has. Sinbad has that ''curse'' controlled with his bright Magoi that blocked Judar's black rukh invasion attack. This is a battle shonen after all, so there is a high possibility of an Alibaba Sinbad-like style, obviously a low rate imitation and thats worst that  simple Plot Armor. 

Hakuryu is just being a pain, as if  their world didn't have enough problems.
