In this season review: Bakuma 3, Btooom!, The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, Psycho-Pass, From the New World, Magi and Robotics;Notes.
Well i like Magi its extremely faithful to the manga. Later it will be even more better. Aladdin is annoying at the beginning but he does grow as a character.
Being extremely faithful to the manga is not always the best thing. Right now Magi just isn't an entertaining show. It might get better later, and it might not (who knows if it will stay faithful to the manga?). But like I said in the article I think 11 episodes are enough to know if a show is worth following or not. There are many new series that conclude, or at least hit their stride, by their 11th or 12th episode. This series manage to deliver an entire story in 12 episodes, or at least enough of it to make you want to stick around. I see no reason why people would chose to invest in Magi over those other shows.
