So recommended for Elfen Leid, Fullmetal Alchemist fans, (and fans of bishonen, very possibly) yes. But those who want an adventure along the lines of Villgust and Lodoss...I would say no, disappointing.
The picture you see in the Amazon listing is a cardboard slipcase and the spine of the cardboard slipcase as-well, and what yo will find inside is a sturdy casing with a large piece of artwork (also present on the dvd version - as this part is the only thing the same in both versions) covering both front and back of the inner casing. When you go to open it up there is no seal holding A and B together so it should just unfold like a book. Inside you are presented with 2 Blu-ray discs. The first one is a Blue disc which looks very nice which contains episodes 1 to 8 and Bonus content. The second disc is a Green disc featuring episodes 9 to 13. Both discs sit at either side of the packaging ontop of a yellow background with white rukh featured upon it.
When you put the blu-ray into your player (PS4,PS3, Blu-ray player etc.) it will load up asking you either French or English - both feature 2 trailers at the beginning once you select your language (trailers are skipable, and the trailers for each language are different). It is dubbed in French, English and Japanese. There are subtitles for all of these options as-well - the menu screen is also very nice as you do not have to select "episode selection" and instead choose it from the main menu screen instead.
I'm extremely happy with this product - my only disappointment is where I bought both DVD and Blu-ray the inner artwork is the same, but I'm still very pleased.
The voice acting is very well done as-well.
The series is based on the Arabian nights, same as Disney's Aladdin, the story takes place in an arabian setting, which for me is a good change in comparison to the common anime settings in Japanese or Europe style settings. The Story revolves mostly around a mysterious, wise, good mannered (and often clue less to the world around him) boy named Aladdin (nothing to do with the Disney Charicter) who possesses a flute that contends a Djinn (genie) named Ugo. He explores the world in order to find out what it is. This is just a quick summery of the basis of the plot as it opens up as the story progresses. The story itself is well done, funny, and often quite moving at times, especially the episodes involving slavery.
The Animation used in the series is top notch, which i would expect for the studio that brought us Fairy Tail, with some spectacular scenes. The English voice acting is also excellent, with the Voice actors of the Three main characters (on the box) matching there characters. People who are familiar with voice actors will also recognise some big time voice actors like Patric Seitz, Matthew Macer, Liam O Brian, Sam Riegel and Todd Herberkorn.
overall, I would recommend this to any Anime fan looking for something new. Espesualy those who have seen A-1 Pictures other works
Most of the main characters here will be well-known to everyone from the old Arabian Nights stories, but not quite in the form you may remember them. Ali Baba is a street-dwelling bad boy when he meets Aladdin (that's the kid with the blue hair by the way,) who is a Magi, a serious magician. They become friends and set off on various adventures, meeting Sinbad and a lot of other cool people along the way.. that's it in a nutshell. The main thing I want to say though is that this is a truly excellent anime series, one of the best I've yet seen. You get really engrossed in the storyline, which becomes pretty dark as the first season progresses. Great characters, amazing artwork, a lot of fun and a cracking storyline make 'Magi' a real must-see for any fan of magical anime. Series 1, (i.e. this,) was 26 episodes long, so watching it every week it took 6 months to watch, but it was really worth all the effort that took!
It hasn't some out yet so who knows if there'll be any extras or how the DVD package will look but as to content, I highly recommend 'Magi' as a story. Series 2 is happening now.. I'm watching every week and it's up to Epi 19 already so that's another release to look forward to in future.. meantime check out this first series if you can, I'm sure you won't be disappointed! 5 stars.. Px :))
