As promised, I’ll now put my mother language to use which is Arabic and tell you guys the meaning of the names of the characters in the anime “Magi”. Now, Most of you know that “Magi” is an anime that is basically about one of the famous and well-known stories in the Arabian countries. Almost 70% of the characters are from a arabian story book called “One Thousand and One Nights” or as it now called in english “Arabian nights”. Alibaba, Morgiana, Aladdin, Sinbad, Cassim, and so much more are all characters of the book “Arabian night” and actually have the exact same role as in the book, which is why i really, really enjoyed this anime because of how the really dig into the Arabian culture and all. Now, The names.  Each of the characters has a name, and these names have a meaning that goes along with their character. and i just wanted to point out that these are indeed  the meaning, and i’m not making things up.

Aladdin // علاء الدين 

Aladdin means “nobility of faith”. it also can mean the Honor, the Highness, the Glory, and the highest, ex.

People with this name have a deep inner desire to inspire others in a higher cause, and to share their strongly held views on spiritual matters. 

Alibaba // علي بابا

This is also an Arabian name. Which means many things such as Great leader, The high and exalted one, The noble. The people with such a name would rather focus on large, important issues, and delegate the details. They value truth, justice, and discipline. and also at building things in the material world. Because of their focus on order and practicality, they may seem overly cautious and conservative at times. 

Morgiana // مرجانه

The meaning of that name is “Red Coral” And also it means softness and smoothness and transparency and the beauty of the coral. The red blossom that they used in the old ages to decorate clothes, walls, tables, and all sorts of stuff.

Sinbad // سنباد

It literally means the migrant around sea. The people with that name tends to be witty and ingenious merchant adventurers.

Judar // جودار    or   Judal // جودال

both are the same meaning.

This name gives a certain amount of practicality to thinking; the people with this name are tendency to scatter the efforts for, although they want system and order and stability in their life, they are too apt to be distracted from the job they’re doing and to become involved in spontaneous interests. They have also a good sense of humour, and are fairly easy-going, making friends with those who enjoy a good time. But as much as they’re fun to be with, they are very much mischievous .

Ja’far // جعفر

It means the river. little stream. People with that name have a deep inner desire for love and companionship, and want to work with others to achieve peace and harmony.

Cassim // قاسم 

it means leadership, and personal independence. People with that name tend to be passionate, compassionate, intuitive. They are usually humanitarian, broadminded and generous, and tend to follow professions where they can serve humanity. Because they are so affectionate and giving, but they are also quick-tempered. 

Masrur // مسرور

now the choice of this name, is probably one of the favourite in this anime haha. because ‘Masrur’ means glad, Happy, pleased. Which kinda different of his character since he’s the almost expressionless and tough guy. 

ithnan // اثنان 

it literally means the number two. that’s basically it.

Dunya // دنيا

This name is an imitation of the world, life, universe, ex. including the minimum of the joys and beauty.

Umm Madaura // أم مادورا

The meaning of her name is Holy Mother

Annnd that’s it! if there’s someone or something else you want to ask about my askbox is open!.

I am not done because yuuki kaji voices takumi so I did what I had to do

bonus:

genderfluidluffy-deactivated201  asked:

kassali or sinju,, 001

OMG U HAVE UNLEASHED THE BEAST. LONG POST AHEAD

001 | send me a ship and I will tell you:

—————-—————-KASSALI—————-—————-

  • when I started shipping it if I did:

i guess not long after kassim’s first appearance. childhood friends ships are my faves, and there’s so much angst in kassali i mean

and

AND EVERYTHING ELSE.

I JUST CAN’T— these two are too much im so in love with this ship…

  • my thoughts:

they love each other so much! no matter how much kassim has tried to hate alibaba, he doesn’t truly hate him, he’s just envious of how much of a good person alibaba is. but he actually loves that about him. alibaba is like a sunray in the dark— it burns your eyes which are used to oscurity, but it’s still a light and if you give it a chance instead of shutting your eyes, eventually you’ll be able to see more clearly.

alibaba too always admired kassim, but they never knew this about each other and it led to lots of miscommunication.

i think they both have reasons to feel guilty towards the other. alibaba left to live with his father, the king, and never came back — leaving kassim and mariam in poverty all alone, which caused mariam to die of starvation. that’s also alibaba’s fault, because he didn’t think about them when he was filling his stomach with all the nice food of the royal palace.

kassim, on the other hand, tried to kill him and everyone he loves out of revenge (because his anger was justified at the beginning and so were his intentions — that is, starting a revolution — but then as he fell into depravity he started losing focus of that and making it all about hate and revenge).

but in the end they forgave each other and i think that’s what matters. i also like to think that kassim’s last words, which he couldn’t finish saying, were meant to be something along the lines of “We’re in love, aren’t we?”

  • What makes me happy about them:

They’re childhood friends! And also, the fact that even though they’re so different and at the same time so similar, they care about each other a lot, to the point of crying during their final fight. They went through a lot, but they still trust each other, even though the trust they put in each other ends up betrayed by both parties (kassim hoped they’d be together forever, but alibaba left when they were kids; alibaba trusted kassim with his plans of revolution, but kassim betrayed his trust; kassim trusted alibaba to stay by his side until the end, but alibaba sided with aladdin and the others instead; etc).

  • What makes me sad about them:

tfw half of ur otp is dead,..

  • things done in fanfic that annoys me:

none so far? i’ve even seen some kassim→alibaba dubcon and it still doesn’t seem so ooc to me, honestly. it’s just one way to interpret kassim’s character, and the darkness that was flowing through him as he fell into depravity.

  • things I look for in fanfic:

slice of life stuff is more than enough for me! but also angst and introspection.

  • Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: 

i like alimor!

and idk about kassim… maybe with judal? that could be interesting. i can’t really imagine them them together romantically though… idk haha

  • My happily ever after for them:

KASSIM SURVIVE S and joins alibaba and the others! everyone glares at him at first, and kassim feels very unwelcomed, but eventually everyone starts believing that he’s changed and one day the two of them get married and kassim carries alibaba around bridal style while traditional music plays and everyone is laughing and clapping their hands aaahhhh ♥

i also headcanon kassim to be the type who would give alibaba cheesy nicknames and call him is “babe” or “boo” or even call him “alibabe” kdjsfjff

  • who is the big spoon/little spoon:

kassim is the big spoon most of the time, because he feels safer like that, being used to watch his back and feeling like in that position he can both respond more easily to an attack and protect alibaba with his body. even if they’re in a safe place. no place is 100% safe, kassim has learned.

  • what is their favorite non-sexual activity:

holding hands, sparring with each other, competing at literally anything, drinking together and having fun!

—————-—————-SINJU—————-—————-

  • when I started shipping it if I did:

since the very first appearance of judal! i mean honestly they’re so obvious. judal is so ambiguous when he’s around sinbad, and he says all these ambiguous things

also the scene where judal pretends to cry??? and sinbad immediately reaches out for him even though he’s his enemy?

THE GENUINELY CONCERNED LOOK IN SINBAD’S EYES… like seriously, sinbad always looks ad judal is this way that is just so sad but never hateful. sinbad doesn’t hate judal, even though he probably should. and judal doesn’t hate sinbad either. he actually wants sinbad by his side, he wants to conquer the world together with sinbad. judal is an overgrown child, he’s capricious and he WANTS sinbad.

it’s like impossible not to ship them at least a little bit like please

  • my thoughts:

i think i said everything above lol

  • What makes me happy about them:

again i think i said everything above haha. but i really love just how much judal clearly wants sinbad by his side. and i love how sinbad (along with kougyoku) seems to be the only one who understands that judal is not okay, that judal is in pain. he can see through judal’s façade. they know each other much better than it might seem at first.

  • What makes me sad about them:

that they will never be 100% canon :-))))

  • things done in fanfic that annoys me:

i haven’t read many fics about them (there aren’t that many magi fics on ao3…) so i wouldn’t know ;;

  • things I look for in fanfic:

pls just. break down judal’s psychology. i want to see introspection, i want to see angst, i want to see all the aspects of this complicated relationship. i don’t necessarily need smut for these two (but that’s always appreciated) but i want good interactions, i want judal teasing sinbad and sinbad tensing up, knowing he can’t resist him forever. i want them to break down each other’s defenses, slowly.

  • Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: 

idk much about hakuju since i haven’t caught up with the recent chapters, but it sounds like an alright ship so why not? i’d say hakuryuu for judal.

and for sinbad, i also like sinja so yeah, i’d say ja’far.

  • My happily ever after for them:

This one is hard… it’s hard to imagine them after all the angst and teasing and not being able to quite reach into each other’s hearts. I honestly don’t know what to say here. Judal doesn’t look like the type who would just settle down or get married but maybe, who knows, he might even do it if it’s with sinbad. but marrying sinbad would mean that judal would become king too, and a whimsical one at that, causing lots of problems to the country. sinbad still doesn’t know if marrying him was a good idea after all.

  • who is the big spoon/little spoon:

big spoon sinbad of course! judal looooves to curl up against sinbad and feeling him breathe against his back~ judal loves feeling protected. he’s never had a mother or anyone like that to be that close with or feel that warmth that says “i’ll protect you no matter what”, so it’s incredibly good for him to have sinbad spooning him!

  • what is their favorite non-sexual activity:

flirting probably lol i feel like that’s one of the things they’re really good at. they flirt all the time. everyone wonders if they will ever get tired of doing that but NO

Otafest 2015. This was The Squad.

My sis symphoniclolita (Viral and Jaf’) and I (Juju and Mei) met myriadtruth(Alibab) and Essy (Sinbad) by chance there and we basically snowballed. We’ve never been in a cosplay group so I was so happy, everyone was so awesome and we had a great time!!!!
