Okay, Magi will be ending soon and a good percentage of fans will probably be unsatisfied by the ending. There are those who were greatly disappointed by how the final arc played out, and those who hated the author’s choices regarding shipping and relationships. And there are those who, like me, fall into both categories.
Certainly all of us have that special alternative ending we wished for. And a number of other fans, both now and in the near future, will surely enjoy our versions of the story’s ending. As @sugarholicsheep said, the entire manga could use some major fan-friendly revamping, but such a project would take lots of time and effort. Instead, why don’t we try making short Canon-Divergent fics, comics, drawings, etc., to wrap things up in our own special way.
For instance, I personally believe Magi ended at 313. Therefore, I could opt to write a oneshot starting at the point after Alibaba reunites with Aladdin and company and end things with an Alikou Wedding. Or even a Jukou Wedding, depending on my mood. I’m just suggesting this in case anyone feels interested (or frustrated) enough to give it a try. This could be anything from individual work to collaborative efforts. You can grab a friend and brainstorm a page-long plot. It doesn’t have to be perfect; it doesn’t even have to be good. Just something that comes from the heart. Even a few paragraphs or some doodles sharing your own version(s) of the manga’s conclusion. This is merely a challenge, not an organized event (UNLESS SOMEONE VOLUNTEERS TO ORGANIZE SUCH A THING), so feel free to do it or send any suggestions or anything.
Let’s give one last hurrah for Magi before it fizzles out.
