Many people believe that ren is either arba herself or her daughter. first off, ren can't be arba because ren knows magic while arba is a swords(wo)man.

Do we just make stuff up now?

Many people believe that ren is either arba herself or her daughter. first off, ren can't be arba because ren knows magic while arba is a swords(wo)man. as fer ren being arba's daughter, we have yet to see arba expecting a child in the flashback. i don't believe shinobu will make her randomly give birth to a child.

 

my pick, ren is sheba's child (yeah) and aladdin is a part of solomon, like alexis was of sheherazade's. sheba most prolly dies after giving birth and her child grows under arba and company (ithnan, wahid and his wife).

Ok so, black rukh is God's rukh. Does that mean (considering what we saw at the beggining of the origin of everything, and the dragon confirming for the guys that there was something corrupting God) it became black and fucked up? And then Solomon cleaned it. Because remember that God's rukh wasn't always black. Pretty cool tbh. And well, I think It's safe to assume Gyokuen is Arba so we can go all home. Now I wonder what exactly is that older Solomon. Did Solomon divided his will and or created a new vessel to still guide his people? I can't wait to see how this ends. Now we only need how they destroyed their world. And the whole Al-tharmen working for their God was obvious the second they pretty much sayed the giant mass of black rukh was their God and wanted to bring it back. Don't know why is that a revelation for anyone o:

Really, now? I think it's been pretty clear who that kid is right from the start. He stated himself that he was from their world, and he's the spitting image of both of them.

First of all:

That aside, you left aside the whole reincarnation part of the plot, where a girl can even come back as a boy.

Does anyone else get tired of "the self absorbed god who can create a world (while apparently possessing only a limited amount of energy and only pseudo-omniscience and omnipotence) directs the paths of sentient beings to their own whims the world over, but then can't predict those sentient beings getting pissed off and ousting them."?
 

'cause I am. -_____-

 

Well, I suppose plenty of people maintain narrow and limited ideas of God's motives, character, and abilities in their genuine religious beliefs.

For anybody who's getting tired of this "heavy, back-story stuff"....
How about some extra Magi scenes, translated from the author's own blog?   :D

(I loved seeing Morgiana got to hang out with the Finalis corps that day!) XD

And ironically, in Aladin's world it is Solomon's White Ruhk that symbolizes forced destiny upon the humans and the Il'Ilah's Black Ruhk is the symbol of opposition to that destiny ^_^;

 

Both kinds of rukh offer a certain kind of salvation as well as a way to deal with tragedy; black rukh offers an excuse ... everything bad that happened to you and everything bad you did or may do is the will of god, as such you´ve no responsibility for anything you do. White/gold rukh seems to attempts a similar thing yet similar thing ... but instead of forcing everything onto everyone, it´s apperantly trying to allow people to reach a future through understanding and guidance - therefore the magi as guides towards a better future as Solomons physical substitutes - and appears more suitable to prevent tragedy as far as reasonably possible.

 

If they really were trapped in the flow of destiny then wouldn't it mean that the whole "I'm gonna be a new god" thing be part of it?

 

Maybe the unfinished dark valley the origin dragon lives in is something akin to a dark spot that "gods" influence doesn´t sufficiently reaches in the first place?

.

OK this chapter makes it clear (to me at least) that Arba is Gyokuen because she tells Solomon that killing Il Illah is the one thing she won't let him do and in the flashback of ch193 Solomon says "So you didn't allow it huh... In the end".

Well that's just my opinion anyway so I could be wrong.

since ill illah will is the black rukh, obviously she's the person, because Gyokuen is always saying that the black rukh is father and stuff like that.

『well, there is such a thing as an observer affect, by simply having an observer the outcome changes (whether the observer effect be due to quantum or because of a principle like the Doppler effect, it still changes the end result so just deal with it) so by simply observing the possibility of change, change can be made... simple as that...』

What I'm getting from the newest chapter -

beautiful art, but i've lost interest in the story. ): too bad, i really enjoyed it for a while, and i've been reading it for a long time. Thanks sensescans for all your hard work ! Ya'll really do a great job ^^

So this just means that the bad guys who always claim to be going against destiny by using the black rukh are actually going with the flow of destiny.

I wonder if they actually know that, I suppose they probably do.

 

But this gives a chance for Aladdin to be able to meet his father through the Rukh.

 

They know it, the Al Thamen are the magicians from this world and in this chapter they all saw the whole thing together with Solomon and everyone else.

So that´s when those three became the magi of their world?

I don't really believe it's Sheba, either, however the author is doing their absolute best to make you think it's Sheba (which is why I don't think it's Sheba). Whenever the 3 uppermost magi are portrayed, it's always Sheba's slot that seems to be in question.

I think that, rather than just going with the flow of destiny, they actually go back to it after having been freed of it once, which makes it even more pitiable.

So is this arc finally ending? I know that backstory's important and all, but this just couldn't keep me interested. Glad we'll be back to the normal Magi world soon.

Destiny. I like that word.

This destiny stuff bores me. Aladdin's gonna become a philosopher.

I don't think that it was confirmed that this was David: it could also be an aged Solomon (aka Solomon split into a divine and mortal person).

 

 

Why are people so glued to that staff? Arba can as well just take it from Sheba, necessary if her own gets destroyed.
