Honestly, if Ohtaka really was as horrible of a storyteller as some people make her out to be, we wouldn’t have such great characters like Sinbad or Serendine, Judar, Hakuryuu, Abra, etc. Nor would a lot of us have gotten so absorbed into Magi that we followed it so far. I mean sure, there are some things that maybe could have been told different, but that’s to be expected. Ohtaka is writing in her own view, with her own opinions and ideas. They’re bound to clash with others. Because we’re all different and have different beliefs of what should and shouldn’t be. It’s natural. But instead of pointing swords at her for not matching our ideal version of how everything should be, instead it’s better to come to understand not everything will go as we want and appreciate the things we do enjoy. Give understanding and keep in mind that not everyone will be pleased. It’s just natural.
