When Is Magi Season 3 Coming? [2023 Updates]

magi season 3


Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic is an adventure anime series adaptation of Shinobu Ohtaka’s Japanese manga. Magi is any magician who is extremely talented and feels an intense passion for magic.


It is a part of their life and this is how they see it. They are powerful and can make significant decisions for the kingdom.


But this story is about a young Magi, named Aladdin. He just wants to know himself and find his true identity.


Aladdin is on a journey but he got his company. He can summon a djinn named Ugo. As the story progresses, he finds more friends and people who will help him truly understand life and his purpose.


Magi involves magic, adventure, action, and a wonderful fantasy world. It is a well-loved anime with a loyal fanbase, but the problem is, there is no sign of season 3.


Fans want it desperately, so let’s find out everything about the anime and any latest updates related to the new season.




Everything we know about Magi so far


We all love to see different worlds, don’t we? Full of magic, the anime introduces us to the Dark Continent from where Morgiana belongs. We also get to see the native kingdoms of Aladdin and Alibaba.


The name of the characters reminds me of Arabian Nights. And indeed, the story of the anime is heavily based on Arabian Nights. The magic, the adventure, the action, the mystery, everything keeps your eyes wide open and forces you to binge-watch the series.


The anime ended on a rather weird note. Alibaba enters into the new World created by Sinbad and tries to reunite with his friends and that’s it.


It has been so many years and yet we haven’t got another season. We haven’t even got an answer to our question, “Will there be a Season 3 for Magi The Labyrinth of Magic?”  Therefore, we decided to hunt for the answer ourselves.


Shall we begin?




Official Announcements and Release Date of Magi Season 3


If you’re a fan of the series, you are already aware that the last episode of Season 2 aired in 2014. 


Over the past 7 years, no official updates have been available on whether the next season will happen or not.


Enough content is already there for a whole new season, but why there is no Magi season 3? Some fans are expecting it to come out around 2024. But no one knows the real answer.


To figure out we need to look at the source material, ratings, popularity, and sales to figure out whether it would be viable for the creators to renew it for the next season.


We will first look into the source material and see if enough volumes of the manga are left to make a whole new season.




Source Material Information for Magi Season 3


The anime series is an adaptation of a manga series of the same name. It was written and illustrated by the Japanese mangaka Shinobu Ohtaka.


The first volume of the manga was published on July 3, 2009.

An interesting thing to notice here is that the date of the last published volume is October 2017. Do you remember the last episode aired in 2014?


That means the source material has not been exhausted right? But is there enough of it for another whole season to be created? yes, there is.


Season 1 and Season 2 total covered 198 chapters of manga but in total there are 369 chapters. If we assume each season covered almost 100 chapters then there are 171 chapters still left for season 3.


So, here we are getting a positive signal. What about popularity?




Popularity Details of Magi Season 3


Oftentimes we see the desire of the fans doing wonders. How do you ask? If there is huge popularity amongst people for Season 3, do you think the creators will not take this chance?


They definitely will. But for that to happen, we need to make sure that the fans are raving about it! Is that the case here?


Who can tell us about it better than social media platforms and Google right?


Search Volume

A monthly search is a genuine metric to know the actual number of people interested in Magi season 3. As expected there are significant searches for Magi season 3, with total global searches of around 10K.


The majority of these searches come from the US. There is no surprise at all. For almost all anime the US is the home for searches and interest.


Google Trends

What’s the trend? Is there any?


My goodness, are we going through some kind of “bad luck” phase? It has been going down continuously and now there’s almost no trend. Or at least not enough for another season I’m sure. Guys, there’s still a lot left okay?


Don’t lose hope yet so quickly!


Twitter and Instagram

Twitter & Instagram Is there a strong social presence? Do you guys know how to write a BIG NO? Because the answer to the question is indeed a BIG NO!


They haven’t even bothered to open a social media account on either Twitter or Instagram. I don’t why, but a huge section of the older generation has yet not realized the power of social media.


Never mind, that’s not our business. We need to take a look at the fan pages if any!


Instagram on magi season 3


The hashtag #magithelabyrinthofmagic has high usage. There have been 86.7k posts using it. A ray of hope? Whatever you take it as this doesn’t soothe me at all.


What about Twitter?


twitter on magi season 3


Around a thousand? That will attract the creators for another season. Oh, let’s go to sleep. Lol! I don’t see myself watching Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic Season 3 in 2023, or 2024 until a miracle happens!


Presently, my job is to hunt for that miracle. Quite a difficult task right? Anything for you all!



reddit popularity detail of magi season 3


You know what? Before heading over to Reddit I was singing the song “Don’t Let Me Down”. Don’t let me down!” God, I can’t stop laughing at myself!


Anyways, did Reddit let me down? Yes, and, No. The page Magi The Labyrinth of Magic has 9.9k followers presently. So no, it did not let me down because it is comparatively higher than Twitter and Instagram.


Yes, it did let me down, because 9.9k isn’t attractive for another Season to be created. What am I supposed to do now? Wait, we need to check the online reactions of people as well, don’t we?


It’ll be fun I can assure you. And please do not leave me in the middle of the process. It feels so disheartening!



Online Reactions for Magi Season 3


Online reactions are another important factor to decide for next season. How people react matters a lot to the team of any series. Reactions may be sometimes wrong but looking at different platforms will surely give the right answer.



Once again we come back to you, dearest Reddit. I’m in a good mood lol! What do people say about anime? The ironic thing is that whatever they had to say has been told in the year 2014 and this is 2023.


Do you think it matters now? I don’t know. Yet let’s give it a look, at least we will get to know what they think about it.


Or, better, what they used to think about it!


reddit fans reaction on magi season 3


So far positive reviews and I’m so glad about that. What about Myanimelist?



myanimelist fans reaction on magi


The ratio of good to bad reviews is 1:3 or maybe 4. I hate this. But, I ain’t giving up so easily.


another myanimelist fans reaction  on magi season 3


This person cried when Season 2 was over? That’s so touching. You are the one we were looking for sweetest. Did any of you cry as well?


I’m so much interested to know. Now, are you not excited to know about the expected plot of Magi’s The Labyrinth of Magic Season 3?


I’m dying to share it with you guys.



Expected Plot of Magi Season 3


In the last few episodes, we see Alibaba enter the new World created by Sinbad. If the creators take it up from where they left us, we will probably see Alibaba searching for his friends and then the reunion of the trio.


In Sindria, Alibaba, Aladdin, and Morgiana will train themselves to increase their abilities for a mission. They will work together to confront the mysterious organization Al-Thamen.


Wondering what Al-Thamen is? I am afraid I can’t tell you that. No, it’s not a secret. It’s just that I don’t know about it.


I will have to read the manga to know that, but I prefer to wait for Season 3 instead. No matter how long it takes :) There will be a lot of mysteries ahead so tie up your seat belts and get ready for the upcoming adventures in Sindria with Alibaba, Aladdin, and Morgiana.



Reviews and Rating Score for Magi


imdb rating for magi: the labyrinth of magic


Reviews and Ratings matter a lot when you’re deciding on a sequel. After all, the fans decide if the anime is good or not and if it is worth watching or not. And how do they express it? Of course via reviews. Did the anime Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic get good reviews and ratings?


I told you I’d help us hunt for a small ray of hope right? Here it is… The anime has been given a rating of 7.8/10 by IMDb and 8.1/10 by Myanimelist.


That’s pretty good. I’ve one more thing to share with you all and I’m sure it will make your day. What is it? The reviews on Google!


google review for magi season 3


Thankfully we got something to keep us hoping. I almost felt as if people didn’t like it anymore. But this cheered me up, more so because the review was not given years ago.


It is just a few months old. A sigh of relief!

Magi Manga, DVD/Blu-ray Sales


Is there anything in the world, that can be done without money? Of course, there are, but they aren’t materialistic, are they? They do not involve huge financial budgets.


The creation of an anime most certainly does. If the creators of the anime or the manga have been losing money in the second season, rest assured there won’t be a Season 3.


Therefore, we need to find out about their profit margin. And when I say “their profit margin”, I mean that of the anime creators as well as a mangaka.


Manga Sales

I have got a surprise for you people, and it is huge. As of the year 2016, the manga has had over 28 MILLION copies in circulation.


Eyes open, jaws dropped! 28 MILLION? Oh my lovely God, thank you for this. And the best part is, that the manga became a huge commercial success only after the release of the anime adaptation.


So now we know it was mainly for promotional purposes which were successful. The mangaka has not yet stopped producing volumes for the series. So, maybe when there are enough volumes published, the creators will take it up for another season.


The success is so huge, that the chances are high as well.


DVD/ Blu-ray Sales

To determine the sales and profit margin of the anime, we need to know the number of Blu-Ray disc sales. Total Blu-ray sales of the anime are 1,473 while DVD sales stood at 2,283 so in total, we had 3756 sales.


This number is for season 2 while for season 1 we have 2885. With the rise in popularity of online streaming platforms, the sales of Blu-ray discs have gone down.


Presently, anime is available on platforms like Netflix and Crunchyroll, and I guess most of the profit comes from there. I doubt that sales are any strong.


The only option is to speculate, and I guess we aren’t interested in wasting our time speculating things. What do we have next on the menu?


Merchandise Sales

Run a search on Google or any other search engine and you will see there are a lot of products available related to the anime Magi The Labyrinth of Magic.


From T-shirts to gifts and a lot more on platforms like Amazon, Redbubble, etc. If you’re a huge fan and are interested in getting one, you can easily check them out.



Popular Magi Characters


Do you love any character from Magi? Are you craving to see them again in the next season? We have a few important characters from the series below.



morgiana from magi: the labyrinth of magic


Morgiana is a pure-blood Fanalis from the Dark Continent. She is a descendant of the red lion, with red hair and red eyes. These are typical character traits of all Fanalis.


Morgiana rarely talks, but we can’t ignore the fact that she does not always behave like this. She can be extremely furious and violent. One stomp of her feet can break the ground.


That is crazy!!! She suffers from some kind of inferiority complex. This is mainly due to everything she has gone through all her life. According to her, she can never become an Empress because once she used to be a slave.


This shows how much she has been impacted by this. Although she mostly seems to be tough, she does have her moments of being vulnerable.


This happens mostly, whenever something happens with Alibaba. By the way, I guess you already know that Alibaba is her love interest. Morgiana always tries to be useful to people who are close to her and protect them.


And to her, the only close people are Alibaba and Aladdin. This has affected her mentally and mostly she feels she is useless. It feels very bad thinking about her.


This is just fiction, but it’s not that it has never happened in real life. People have had such lives. They were treated no better than animals.


Hands and feet locked in chains, serving their so-called “masters”. How horrifying the world had been. Thank God we weren’t born back then. Some of us might have had the same fate.



alibaba of magi: the labyrinth of magic


Alibaba is the male protagonist of the anime. He is a kind young man with average height and blonde hair. Alibaba is shown to be cunning in the beginning, but gradually we see him opening up to be a caring person.


He meets Aladdin when he is working as a cart driver and they soon strike up a friendship. Guilty of destroying Alibaba’s goods, Aladdin plans to repay his debts by conquering a nearby “dungeon” full of treasure.


Excited by the idea of being rich Alibaba joins Aladdin in the treasure hunt. Throughout the series, we see him growing closer to Aladdin and Morgiana.


Together the duo saved Morgiana and helped her break the mental chains of her former slave master Jumail. And then they were three! Alibaba is a very skilled negotiator.


He has had the privilege of getting a high-class education. Therefore, Alibaba is a very skilled person as well as a good communicator. Wondering how he got such a high-class education?


He was born in the slums of Balbadd, right? Yes, but he was the son of the King of Balbadd. Years after Anice’s death, he was taken to the palace by the King and was taught maths, physics, economics, and all the other subjects by great teachers.


Then how did he become a cart driver? Well, he eloped from the palace, and to support himself financially he became a cart driver. Now you know his history.


Let me introduce you all to Aladdin.



aladdin of magi: the labyrinth of magic


Aladdin’s past is not much known, but later in the anime, we get to know that he is the son of King Solomon and Queen Sheba of Alma Gotten.


Although Aladdin does not know much about worldly affairs, he is a wise man. How can he? Until the day he escaped with Ugo, he had never even seen the outer world.


All he knows is the Room of Fortitude and Ugo. He might not be aware of worldly affairs, but he is very wise compared to others of the same age.


Aladdin is also a magician. He met Alibaba a few days later when he was on a cart with a few other passengers and Alibaba was the driver.


They connect instantly and both share each other’s dreams. Aladdin’s dream was to conquer the “dungeons” which according to him are full of treasures. By the way, we also see that he has a very bad habit of stealing food.


Aladdin, along with Alibaba, helps Morgiana escape from her master Jumail.



Other Decisive Factors for Magi Season 3


We know about the characters, the popularity of the anime, the sales, and the profit margin. We have also seen the reviews and ratings of the anime.


There is only one factor to be dealt with. What is it? The ending of the series. If we have had a proper ending, there are very few chances of another sequel.


But, if the ending was not good, or wasn’t complete, the chances are better. So, it is very important to see what happened at the end of Magic The Labyrinth of Magic Season 2.


Magi Ending Explained

In the Final Arc episode, we see Alibaba Saluja, journeying to the New World created by Sinbad. He tries hard to find his friends Morgiana and Aladdin.


And that’s it? Did he find them? What is the new World like? The show left all of us on a cliffhanger and is not ready for another sequel.


This is cruel to the fans. We want to know what happens next. We demand a proper ending. The manga is not yet over, so naturally, the storyline of the anime cannot be over either.


Let’s hope for the best.


The Controversy surrounding the Anime

Okay, let’s get straight into it. There are no such controversies around it. Everybody knows it is heavily based on stories from the Arabian Nights and that’s alright.


Most of the storyline is fictitious. There are certain aspects of the anime which deal with cruelty in the real world, like slavery. It is universally acknowledged as one of the most disgusting acts by the human race.


There’s no denying it. Moreover, slavery is just a small part of it all. So, there isn’t anything controversial related to Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic as of now.
