Alibaba's nowhere close to being Sinbad's rival in the short-term.

He'll need to overcome mid-boss Hakuryuu first, defeat Al-Sarmen, and after several timeskips only will Alibaba be capable enough to match True Final Boss Sinbad.

I'm guessing that happened during the Balbadd arc since I can't remember that happening. Guess I'll have to look over some of those chapters.

Yeah, it happened in Balbad, but it was revealed later. Remember when that guy from Al-Sarmen poisoned Alibaba's magoi and Aladdin had to enter Alibaba's body? At that time Aladdin saw that part of Cassim's magoi was inside Alibaba, protecting him.

Cassim's already an ever-present force in Alibaba's character development and history... and now they're one in life and power too. :/

I guess in hindsight, it being Cassim's magoi was obvious due to the various hints and all that... but I never liked the idea.

Is it just me, or does Cassim still feel like an unsympathetic asshole, after all is said and done? Sure, he had a 'woe is me' crapsake lifestyle, but he, out of his own volition, allowed himself to fall that far out of some twisted sense of jealousy and envy.

His jealousy and envy warped his purpose, but deep down he did want to save his people and free his country. Yeah, he did horrible things, but holding a grudge against him for that is exactly what the story warns you against.

I suppose that's the underlying reason Cassim's character got so inextricably connected to Alibaba. The series' overall message is right there: if you're not willing to forgive you won't save anyone.

Just look at Hakuryuu. Her mother is certainly a bitch of astronomic proportions, and you could say Haku has the right to hate her. Yet, the story still asks for him to let go of his grudge.

Cassim and Haku, whatever their motives, are not at the basest level truly wrong. But their methods to end one wrong creates another. And when someone rises against that wrong, it'll create another. It creates a chain of basically good intentions that is far more horrifying than simple revenge.

Rather than asking him to forgive her, he's being warned that the hatred is warping him into something similar. He shouldn't forgive her, but instead focus on making sure that no one, NO ONE, has to go through the same pain he did.

Kudos to Alibaba, for knowing how take off a woman's bra armor out of nowhere.

What is this, we're back in 1976 and Star Wars hasn't hit the theaters yet?

No, what I'm saying is, there's obvious "come to the dark side" mumbo jumbo development with him in this just like Star Wars.

Maybe it hasn't been translated yet, but hints of it has already been shown long ago.

^ I think taking someone's head in front of a bunch of people who think it was their mother should count...Anyways, the dark side is strong in Magi and the hardest nut to crack will be Judal, who just might never crack at all and surprise kill someone instead.

Judal is the one persuading people to the dark side, but he may in the end choose to rebel.
He's a Darth Vader afterall.

Bra armor is defensive level 1000 and super effective against any weapon attack. The ability to remove bra armor is a highly advanced technique.
