All that they lost was the sacred palace (no djinn, no metal vessels, no magi, no black vs white rukh). Everyone's still got rukh and magic is still used as well as magic tools, AND the landscape just got shat on, making it more fantasy than ever, plus the Alma Torran stuff from the Dark Continent can mingle, so the ending is FAR FROM BECOMING LESS FANTASY MORE REALITY. What it became is MORE ACCEPTING OF LIFE, holding black rukh and white rukh equal, Alma Torran and humans equal, nation this and nation that equal, and magi and humans equal. Not equal in power, but equal in rights and respect. This entire manga's plot was about trying to make the perfect world for its people, deciding how to manage it (one nation, alliance,etc.), deciding how to value its people and/or everything else, and how to achieve any of these at what sacrifice. In terms of these plot fulcrums, the only thing about Magi's ending that isn't entirely appropriate is not showing just how each nation changes to deal with the new world and the values of acceptance they acquired or bolstered. We only saw the leaders debating and being very uncertain, which doesn't really support the plot's begging of an "answer" to all of it. This must be another one of those "it's up to your imagination" and "trust in their newfound teamwork for the eventual perfect solution" endings. THE ENDING IS NOT TERRIBLE, IT'S GOOD BUT LACKING IN ITS "ANSWER" AND ONLY SEEMS RUSHED BECAUSE ITS CLIMACTIC RESOLUTIONS WERE STREWN ABOUT THE ARCS FOR MORE REALISTIC CHARACTER AND IDEAL DEVELOPMENT.0

That doesn't actually explain having fantasy story return to being like our reality, i.e. 'we must learn to live without the awesome stuff because x' It explains the relation, but it doesn't actually explain why having fantasy become more like our reality is the correct choice.0

All fantasy and fiction has roots in reality. Imagination as a whole, fantastical thoughts and ideas, ect, only come into play when something from reality triggers it. Ideas and thoughts don't come from nothing. Even though most fantastic fantasy ideas are born from something based in reality0

I read fantasy because I like reading about different worlds where all kinds of interesting stuff can happen. Every time a different world is made more similar to our own world near the end of the story I feel like it's just... It kind of ruins an important part of the story, and assumes that our world somehow holds a baseline of what all worlds should be like or should evolve into.0

Also not helped by the fact that I have very strong objections to stories which lead into all the special powers disappearing at the end. I get the idea that people shouldn't have to rely on those powers and that being able to survive and thrive without shows your strength as a person but it always feels a bit too opinionated and having those abilities just disappear feels like a tragic loss. Especially since it's not even like the lost powers were replaced by anything in this case.0

Well... Uhm... Yeah, I don't think this manga ended very well. The story had a lot of very good parts and the characters weren't bad either but honestly everything after Aladdin explained the origin (and thus making it a central part of the plot) didn't match up to everything that came before it. At least, in my opinion... I might just have been happier with the more adventurous feeling that the story had before that point. Although the ending did really feel rushed: I could barely figure out what was going on in the chapter where they defeated David because it looked like the artist just wanted to make it as flashy as possible.0

I was Happy with the wedding but I feel like that ending was a bit rushed plus they didn't show everyone where did Kouen & Koumei go?? I wished they had a much better ending then this one - felt super rushed.0

So basically they just need to transfer control of the staves (metal vessels) to a single person. If they can get the djinn out there, they can do it themselves, which they'll probably do. Heck, it'll end up being dramatic with all the djinn sacrificing themselves, even though I'm sure it's not necessary. Solomon only died while sealing Il Illah and Al Thamen because he used so much magoi using his "laws of physics" magic on such a large scale. Not even his staff could draw enough rukh to safely accomplish that, but now there are like 15 metal vessel users, 15 djinn, a bunch of households, and a few armies. There is quite enough magoi to go around. Honestly, they could just supply Koumei's metal vessel with magoi and throw the towers around--that should screw up the magic circle. No need to brute force dimensions.0

Nevermind. He is no metal vessel user so he does not have to die (why is he depicted in shock anyway?)0

Guest_68802: as if Judar would agree to die... And I don't want to see him suddendly become a nice guy (why is he even helping them save the world FFS)0
