He's talking about the anime and movies tradition as old as Lupin or Indiana Jones, where protagonists never seem to get the treasure they came after, especially if it's in an ancient ruins about to collapse.

It's almost exactly where 2nd volume ended though.
It's the perfect dropping point of an episode, right after the dungeon arc.

It's almost the same, but that extra chapter at the end of volume 2 makes a difference, because the few scenes at the end establish a new journey for the characters. It tells the reader what the characters plan to do next and why we should keep reading.

The end of this episode kinda leaves everyone hanging. Okay, Aladdin is in some unknown place. Alibaba looks sad in the previews and they'll probably try to find each other. It's all really vague. I think the difference between the end of volume 2 and the end of this episode is that the end of volume 2 gives direction to the plot that isn't there right now.

I also regret they fail to capture how disappointed Amon was when he saw Alibaba

that was one funny moment in the manga that indicating how low Alibaba's potential as a King at that point

yet it feels like just a random sigh from some random blue djinn

Lots of interesting revelations in this episodes. Magi are the ones who choose the king, and there are apparently several of them around. They will obviously battle at some point. Alibaba seems to have a royal background, and he has been chosen by Aladdin to be his king. I'm really liking Alibaba so far. He turned out to be more badass than I thought, although he doesn't have the stature of a king yet.

I thought for sure he wouldn't be able to bring back the treasure either. Not only because that often happens in that kind of story, but also because he needs a motivation to continue his adventure.

Those two never seem to get rid of that annoying sharif.
That stuck up guy is totally an annoying coward pretending to be strong.
Morgiana is also a weird one. Just can't figure her out.
That sharif is delusional is he thinks Aladdin will ever choose him.
So they beat the dungeon. Ammon sure said some interesting things.

Amon is blue!? Wtf, I always thought he'd be orange/red-ish...

Nice episode, so that's how you do a dungeon run in 40 minutes! Alibaba sure was lucky that there were people around when he came out with the treasure, you never know who just might try to steal the glory and treasure.

Every djinn is blue. Paimon and Zagan are blue too.

Djinn are traditionally blue to begin with.


I'm surprised no one has pointed this out yet, but Alibaba's swordplay makes it clear. As I said last week: He is definitely nobility, possibly royalty.


And Amon's power went to his dagger. So that's how he gained flame powers.

Does anyone know what the Arab text says on the background of the Djinn room?

It certainly isn't any Arabic I'm familiar with. I think it's an imitation: Random scribling made to look like arabic. It certainly looks real enough to anyone who can't read Arabic since I actually had to look closer to tell, so I was somewhat impressed they put that much thought into it.

Well a busy first three episodes for sure. Have to say when Morgiana blew Aladdin away with that first kick I was more focused on that pose of hers rather than being worried about Aladdin .

Still some surprises in how this all ended. I mean not often that you find all this treasure and actually get a chance to take a ton of it before the dungeon collapses . Good for Alibaba.

Just watched the 3rd episode. It was fairly good, but I can see far and wide that they will butcher up the story a bit to fit 52, or maybe even 26 episodes. But aside from that, they really made a decent animation on the characters, especially Morgiana when she fights.

many of us knows it, thats y did not point that out.

After episode 3, its pretty firm that he has royal blood( ability to comprehend those wordings and the swordplay)

I like the show and all but I don't like the slavery part and how much she's been tortured. To be honest I want to know what happen to Morgiana in next week's epsiode/night. That would put be at ease.

I agree about the mistreatment, but I actually like the realism of her slave attitude. In fact, I like just about everything about the character, so far. Her darkness, the sense that she is inwardly struggling to understand things and be free but reacts naturally as a slave -- and those massive legs.

That was probably the most surprising thing about the 3rd episode because up until that point I didn't think he could fight at all and was more about using cunning and knowledge to outsmart strong opponents and that the main trio would look something like this in terms of roles:

Ali Baba - Brains
Aladdin - Magic
Morgianna - Might

but instead he's surprisingly capable. I don't get the sense that he'd hold up anywhere near as well in a serious fight as the other two versus an obvious chump like the Sharif, but I could see him doing some mid tiers fights and making for some interesting swordplay action scenes.

But now he's equipped with Amon's sword. This changes things drastically. Just think about it. It's the full power of Djinn in his little dagger. That's no equipment for "mid tiers fights" at all.

I may be jumping to conclusions but now the promotional poster seems to make a lot more sense:
