Magi: The Kingdom of Magic – Redemption


Happy endings are worth fighting for.

After its first season, some said the Magi anime didn’t deserve the second season it was getting. If so, they made good of the chance they were given.

This is a finale snapshot, so spoilers ahoy! Feel free to read if you don’t mind being spoiler though, because I just might convince you that you need to watch the second season.
