    Or this would become like Narutos Edo Tensei :hmm

    If the Kou Empire will be heading into War vs Sinbad in the future, they need a good chunk of soldiers, having Reim as their allies (even though right now they are enemies) wont be enough IMO.



    Just look at those legs :bury.

    This basically is, an excuse to bring back dead characters.

    I don't know if they can just bring back whole armies. They might just bring back some people who serve a use of helping Kou and those close to them.

    Maybe those dead can see what's happening in the world and tell them what's been happening behind the scenes?

    I mainly brought up the Haku's because the Kou siblings were inspired by them, plus that one omake hints at the brothers being different than the other KV's in Kou and we don't know why, so maybe bringing them back will show how.

    doubt any relevant character will be brought back, they are making an army, not only zombies are there, you can see dungeon creatures in the tubes, like that elephant dude back then who alibaba fought with.

    so they are mass-producing fodder. most likely even the dead are reanimated corpses without the original soul in them.

    Edit: Oh shit, I just noticed the cut off arms of Hakuryuus old generals in some crystal at page 10.

    I hope Ohtaka handles the zombie stuff better than Naruto and Bleach.

    The point of creating the zombie army was to go to war with Reim, but if those zombies arent at least HV level, Kou would get badly raped.

    They might need a bunch of armies filled with former Black Djinn users
    :hmm

    I dont see spoilers saying it was to fight Reim.. it was because Koumei felt a certain "threat" whatever it was. just precautions.

    also they have humans with power of dungeon creatures and assimilated household users besides the undead.


    kous research was portrayed as a bit of sick, but not outright bad, from what we see there is no black rukh involved or anything. if they would use something like black djinn users or other black rukh related stuff, that would make them look outright bad guys and alibaba wouldnt have reacted the way he did (like "eeh.. these guys are not normal but whatever")

    If anything it's smart, basically he's using the dead to make a disposable army. Why have people who are alive out in the front lines. Yeah it's a bit dickish to the dead, but if it gives them more power and can throw a zombie life away then a normal solider why not.

    and it can also be used to revive the dead, as Alibaba discovers when the corpse attacks him. Seems like they were planning on making an undead army from the corpses of the dead Kou soldiers in order to fight Reim.

    Spoiler:
    Kou has always been mentally screwed up, its not that surprising.

    Its also smart having strong zombies face the Fanalist Corps :hmm.

    it really feels like Koumei took Kouens role and even changed appearance accordingly.. Kouen is like some retired old man now.

    the whole arguing with Sinbad thing is dumb.. its like watching a kid arguing with their parents when the parents can just say "its because I say so" anytime and the kid is trying to get around their rules turning their own logic against them. its kind of pitiful. only way alibaba can achieve anything is if sinbad lets him.

    You know what needs to happen based on the rule of three? Alibaba needs to go to a pleasure club, and, as before, ask for the most popular girls there (plural, because why not). And then X and X (or two people who look just like them) appear. Then a familiar tune begins to play, and Alibaba learns the downsides of being able to perceive the world in slow motion.

    That usually the case with building up arcs in manga's. It's the easiest to do and most exciting to read through the main characters journeys. Happens in a lot of manga's. The hard thing is to actually keep up the quality and deliver in vital moments in important arcs. And Magi is definitely hit or miss in that department.
    But yeah, Sinbad is definitely a lot of fun to read. It's like the beginning arcs of Magi.

    At this point I'm thinking a chapter or 2 will be spent on each country he is in, tease about stuff that happened over the 2 years to the country, tease of Aladdin and the others maybe sparkled in, the final on will be Reim and then we may FINALLY get into Aladdin and the others.

    OP doesn't spend all this time world building :wow

    I tired of Alibaba visiting all kind of places meeting with the cast.

    also the females doesnt change at all..

    it feels like the story is actually over and you see everyone living their lives at home as the credits roll.
