And it only gets better from there! The anime will most likely stop around Balbadd for the first cour, look forward to it.

Chapter 151 is out.

One more week or so, and the scanlations will have caught up!

I don't disagree, but I think it also depends at how you look at it.

The current arcs are the best we've had since Balbaad, especially for the world-building aspect of it.
We're finally getting to see other powerhouses around the globe, coming to realize "oh hey! The 7 alliances and Kou Empire aren't the only big-dogs in the world!". It's just so much fun reading the exploration of HogwartsMagnostat and Laem. I can't wait till we see more of Africa Carthage Cathargo.

151 was good, no doubt Hogwarts is an arc comparable to Balbadd, if not better.
I guess the anime motivated the translation group, the time between releases is extremely short. The only sad thing is they nearly caught up with the raws, so releases will be back to 1/week

Undoubtedly. The past 20 or so chapters has been most tantalizing, as the main characters jump into their respective movie roles, with excellent world-building and what looks to be a very strong set-up for their own arc's respective storyline.

It's hard to imagine that it's barely out of the prologue... and it's still very early into the first story of three/four.

I hope it'll be Africa... since technically Mor has already reached the African savanna, of which she found zilch.

What's impressive is, the world powers are actually pretty well balanced.

At one look, Kou Empire looks to be ahead with six dungeon clearers and many household users.
However, even though on a single unit basis the Dungeon beaters are the most powerful, and more powerful than the magicians as Yam mentioned, the sheer fact that Magnastat has apparently 500 hundred high-class Magicians, and thousands upon thousands of middle-class and lower magicians, more than make up for lack of djinn users.

Then we have the Laem Empire, which we know to comman an army of Fanaris.
I don't think the sheer brute power of an ARMY of adult Fanaris needs to even be explained.

There's no single faction that can steamroll the other, which makes for some exciting stage once any kind of major conflict happens.

That's right. He's still a magi though, just a very special one who shouldn't exist.

Additionally, all the current djinn were magi in their previous life (and part of Salomon's court).

So the king reincarnated as a magi, while all the magi from his court reincarnated as djinn.

This all probably happened according to Salomon's plan. He probably did all this to look for the next king of kings that would take his place (Alibaba), and prevent Al-Sarmen to obtain the throne for themselves.

Awesome fight @ 151, really nice cliffhanger. Titus said he's special, but I doubt he's -that- special...

There were 3 people in the panel who said Solomon was the king they 'chose',so the number of magi were probably 3. Not sure if the current djinn were magi, though they were his court or possibly holders of household vessels?

So he decides to handicap himself, in a magic school where strength matters? Not to mention his magic power is higher than Aladdin's, since he wasn't even tired after all that casting. Either he is extremely confident, even in his weakened state, or he is a magi
I really hope he isn't Magi's Kenpachi, that'd be awkward.

^???? i just said his stone does aladdins polar opposite. It GIVES him more power by ABSORBING more rukh. Not blocking out external rukh from enhancing his abilities like Aladdins
please learn to read a single sentence attentively

Considering that rukh exists in a magicians body as well, the fact that it 'absorbs' rukh was ambiguous. So I assumed that you meant the crystal absorbing his rukh.
