What I mean:
These two have an interesting dynamic, and I wished we could see more interactions between the two, so we can learn not only about the romantic side of their relationship, but the platonic side, the emotional side. How do they help each other grow and change? Do they make them act better? Worse? I want to see more of the intricacies of their relationship and how they affect each other's lives, both as a couple and as friends
Hey guys, I just wanted to remind everyone that these characters are fictional. Let’s not have the same debate over and over again. For the sake over everyone involved, calm down and respect other people’s right to have an opinion.
*****THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE SHIPS THAT CONTAIN ABUSE AND/OR PEDOPHILIA
I love every episode of magi I love Alibaba so much I ship Alimor so hard
I love episode 7 of magi because that's where Ja'far is introduced and why does he not have a bigger part in the main series he is the greatest character in the world and his chemistry with Sinbad is so interesting and I ship them so hard why can't Ja'far have a bigger part in the main series omg
Can the fandom stop bashing Ohtaka for Alimor becoming canon??? Like, seriously, it didn’t just happened out of the blue! Morgiana and Alibaba did have some chemistry before Alibaba disappeared for 3 years. Let me just list a few here to elaborate my point;
Most of her life Morgiana was mistreated and had little freedom to socialize with anyone ( her only friend, Goltas, did kept her company, but he hardly spoke ) thus she became very DISTANT and emotionless. But, despite this and her ad lib issues, the former prince did nothing but treated her with kindness. Even when she fucking kicked him and nearly stabbed him to death, he never once tried to harm her. And, inevitably, used his treasure to buy her freedom. A STRANGER, who knew nothing about her, did this!
Then there’s the time Morgiana nearly DIED trying to save her friends by using up a ton of magoi ( which is lethal for fanalis ) and guess who was the only blond to hold her and shed tears for her??
Traveling adventures also play a role for their development, that should be self-explanitory
festival scene where she gushes over Alibaba calling her beautiful
The time Hakuryuu confessed her feelings for her literally made me shed a tear or two?? because no one has ever opened up to her in that way. Sure they shared a kiss and everything (i won’t bash HakuMor bc it is cute!! Like Alikou too) however…Hakuryuu wasn’t the one that freed her from the chains. He wasn’t there when she needed it the most. He wasn’t the person Morgiana set out to follow. Plus, Morg was completely OBLIVIOUS of romance relations at the time. She was still trying to understand her mixed feelings for Alibaba too. So she decided to stick with her savior/Alibaba. She came with this decision on her own.
And then there’s the most IMPORTANT one; Alibaba’s death. Morgiana literally crossed COUNTRIES day and night to get some ray of hope to save him. Setting her life in danger yet again. And when she comes to realize that he had died,,,,she was TORN. Rendered speechless as she laid over his corpse.
There’s more scenes i missed here,,,, but i hope this is enough to shine a little light for those that are angered with the chapter. Ohtaka built up their development long ago, before the 3 year gap! Morgiana isn’t just someone who would easily toss away her feelings/experiences. As for Alibaba, in general, he never forgot about their development too. The flashbacks on Chapter 314 proved this.
TL;DR—BOTH of them had enough character development built up for them to be canon. So PLS stop bashing Ohtaka that it was rushed bc, clearly, it was not c’:
When I started Magi, I was a hardcore Alimor shipper, but after came Hakuryuu and I became a crazy Hakumor shipper, but after he became bad I restarted my Alimor shipping, and now a damn Hakumor reunion and I can’t decide. It frustrates me. Like, AN AWFUL LOT.
So anyone who has seen spoilers of this chapter or read it know what I’ll be talking about.
So at one part, we get to see Olba with his wife Toto and their 2 sons after the time skip (<3), and of course we get to see Alibaba be depressed because everyone he had known 3 years ago had moved on without him.
Olba, being the sweetie he is, says how he still has Morgiana.
Then Toto said something on the comment. “But Olba… Morgiana is, well… with Hakuryuu…”
I nearly cracked at this.
Not because I ship Alimor (which I do), but for the mere fact that if she meant Morgiana was in a relationship with Hakuryuu, it literally goes against everything Morgiana ever stood for as a character.
As a reminder, Alibaba admitted he loved her, right? And so after Hakuryuu “killed” Alibaba, Morgiana even admitted to Hakuryuu that she had loved Alibaba as well; which was a HUGE character point for her due to the fact that when he confessed, she said how when she was a slave, she never had that option to love anyone, and how she had to learn to love because she is now free but was still haunted by being a slave. But in the end, she admitted she loved him and I felt like it was a huge step for her because she knew she was free to love and she wasn’t bound by the past anymore.
She is loyal to a fault, and, as I said, she finally admitted to herself that she loved Alibaba. It’s been three years, and she knew that Alibaba would come back somehow (She only searched for so long and even went to Yunan to see if he could help). She wouldn’t just move on after that bit of time. That is literally out of character for her. I mean, can you even imagine Alibaba seeing her again and her saying, “Yeah, I loved you, but now I’ve moved on, and since we both were grieving over your death, Hakuryuu and I are together now.” That’s f***ed up.
Considering that she is literally my favorite female character in this series (besides Rurumu in Sinbad no Bouken), this will be a huge let-down to her character. And that’ll royally tick me off.
I know another way this could be interpreted was that she was merely “traveling with Hakuryuu” and not with him via relationship, and if that’s the case, that’s fine.
But whatever. I’m just ranting about my feelings here. It might even just be me that is bugged by this. Am I the only one?
