I think we may have seen just a glimpse into why this happened, and I have doubts love (or lack there of) played an especially large role in it.

Spoiler

 

My thoughts exactly. Though I do believe love isn't the greatest influence on these matters, it may actually be the trigger to "falling into depravity".

 

Spoiler

wow, so this week instead of 20 pages of flashback we get 5 pages of mindf*ck, fantastic!

Ya know, I've been thinking a bit... Maybe Sinbad has some part of Solomon, since 1) Their adult form looks the same. >.> and 2) They are both able to inspire people to join their cause like it's nothing. ^.-

If Sheba Is Gyokuen then looks mean nothing in this manga. Besides, most of the characters have the same damn face <__>
Being able to inspire people... It also seems like a weak argument. It's something arbitrary imo. It could be that instead they share that same characteristic, but I don't think that is assures them to be that related (plus they already sayed that is Aladdin the one that has a conection with Solomon instead). Also Sinbad always sparked ruhk all over the place when he used his "talk-no-jutsu", and with Solomon this didn't happen. In that sense It looks like Solomon is truly charismatic and Sinbad is more fishy.

idk, could be that Sinbad is Solomon reincarnated. We still have to know why he is so "perfect" of a candidate to be a king; something that even creeps Yunan out.

edit: And I don't think they joined their cause like it was nothing: Solomon figthed for equalty and freed species. He wanted to all of them to collaborate with each other and live peacfully. In that context is only natural to follow the person that saved you from being a drolling zombie, plus they even sayed that some species saw Solomon like some sort of God already.
Sinbad wanted to create a country that was better than Partevia so he could party all day with his pals. Oh, and equalty and stuff too based on manipulative moves and being a dick.

Ya know, I've been thinking a bit... Maybe Sinbad has some part of Solomon, since 1) Their adult form looks the same. >.> and 2) They are both able to inspire people to join their cause like it's nothing. ^.-

wait, we're getting a flashback arc? inside the flashback arc?

 

flashbackarcception

Now just waiting for the time when Morgana turns into a Red Lion..kukuku

well i lost sight of what was going on in this story with the whole giant monster things lol but at least the art is very pretty to look at

Oh my, you're right.

 

Spoiler

 

 

Based only on appearances I'd say I agree, since she looks nothing like Sheba... but then like half the characters in this manga has the same face.

 

On the other hand, the evil looking woman next to Solomon has Sheba/Gyokuen's staff and so based on the staff it can't be anyone either than Sheba unless the staff switched hands.

 

Spoiler

 

Additionally, the staff the woman next to Ugo is holding is quite different to both Gyokuen and Sheba's; it's a winged design, rather than the kind-of-crescent-moon design that Gyokuen/Sheba use. It's quite clearly Arba's staff.

 

Spoiler

 

I do hope that it's nothing that simple though.

with the experience I have with japanese drama I can say that it isn't enough, those two could even be sheba's children. There is always a reason to not showing the face of an important character. Actually, I don't even think that that person(second image) is a woman.

 

One more thing to add, reading this chapter and seeing that finalis(red lions) came from the same planet as alladin, I'm starting to think that all those people who can't use magic are descendants of those other species and the magicians are descendants of the original humans.

i misread the new chapter title as "mother of dragon" :v

Soooo...

Finalis = Red Lions?

 

Rather obvious now, huh

 

Also, has anyone else noticed that the uniforms of Solomon's magi and Sinbad's generals are very similar? Is this coincidence? Just a thought...

 

I don't think it is a coincidence, especially since Solomon himself resembles Sinbad (both in appearance in action: just like Solomon united the species, Sinbad is unifying various nations). And if Sinbad is Solomon's reincarnation, it would explain why Sinbad's birth was such a major event that every Magi felt it: Solomon went Jesus ;P

I just remembered about Bathsheba. In the Bible, Bathsheba was the wife of David and the mother of Solomon. 

David and Bathsheba were indeed the parents of Solomon (David being depicted as a great man, but highly flawed even in the eyes of God, particularly due to committing adultery with Bathsheba), however I think Ohtaka's Sheba is a reference to the Queen of Sheba, who came to visit King Solomon, possibly from Africa, and was converted by him. Later accounts romanticised this and implied that Solomon also seduced her. 

 

About the red lions,

hahaha i can see sheba's hand!!! look where her right hand is!!! XD

I'm really keen on finding out what triggered Sheba/Gyokuen, Ithnan, Falan and Wahid to go dark side. It's also interesting that Solomon's dad is trying to ascend God.

this flashback is surely long

So the fanalis did exist in Alma Torran, huh.
This can't possibly get any better. SO MUCH SCIENCE!!! And lmao at all the chibi Sheba moments XD especially when she got kicked in by Solomon. ROFL

Well, based on the staffs, It does looks like Sheba is Gyokuen.

Oh my, you're right.

 

Spoiler

 

 

that person with distorted face that is with solomon can't be sheba because doesn't look like her at all, i'm sure the one with Ugo is Sheba since Ugo have a better relationship with her than Arba

Could Elder David be the 'Father' Al Thamen serves?

Maybe not "Elder David" himself, but what he becomes after assimilating that world's God. Just a big lump of dark rukh.

that person with distorted face that is with solomon can't be sheba because doesn't look like her at all, i'm sure the one with Ugo is Sheba since Ugo have a better relationship with her than Arba

 

 

 
 

think he's talking about the girl with Ugo in the next page

Well, let's put it like this:

Spoiler


On another subject, I really like Solomon's theory. But is also sad that he has to keep that posture regarding God so people can keep peace.

alma toran's world = earth

god = big bang

above god = multiverse

people who distorted history in their favor = religion

sheba = sworn believer

ugo = "intellectual" spiritualist

solomon = skeptical

 

it would be painfully funny if shinobu-sensei did it by pure coincidence...

Spoiler

 

Oh. My. Goodness.

Someone is entering the world only god knows and they are not named keima?!?

 

Preposterous.
 

Her face is not hidden here: http://www.batoto.net/read/_/226205/magi_ch215_by_sense-scans/17
 
Either way, I hope that romance isn't the trigger for despair here. After all, it was not one person who destroyed the world but many individuals formerly loyal to Solomon.

 

I think we may have seen just a glimpse into why this happened, and I have doubts love (or lack there of) played an especially large role in it.
