About Magi: The Kingdom of Magic Volume 1:
In order to realize their objectives, the adventurers each embark on a new journey. Aladdin sets his sights on the land of Magnoshutatt to study magic while Alibaba travels to the Leam Empire to challenge the gladiators of the coliseum. Morgiana sets sail towards her homeland of Katarg, and Hakuryu returns to the Kou Empire…

Equipped with a charm to mask his powers of a Magi, Aladdin arrives to Magnoshutatt with another goal—to investigate this nation's relation with the Al-Tharmen—the power behind the “Abnormalities of the World.”

Meanwhile, the royal family of the Kou Empire was in mourning for their Emperor's passing and is shocked when the throne is passed on to someone they had not expected. An ominous cloud loomed over the Empire as the flames of revenge burned within Hakuryu. The Magi of the Leam Empire, Scheherazade, also sensed this threat from across the sea and grew concerned for her people.

Back in Magnoshutatt, Aladdin is hard at training at the academy when he meets Titus Alexius, a prodigy from Leam. But, Aladdin realizes that Titus was also equipped with the same charm!

What is Titus's true identity?! An all new adventure big enough to change the world begins now!

About Magi: The Kingdom of Magic Volume 2:
In their second year at the Academy, Aladdin, Titus and Sphintus are granted Second Class Citizenship in Magnoshutatt and are allowed to venture outside of the campus. There, the group witnesses the harsh realities of racial inequalities and discrimination among the magicians and the humans.

Even though Aladdin is shocked to learn the bitter history between the two races that acted as a catalyst to harbor these prejudices, he is unable to agree with the Academy's Director, Mogamett's vision of building a “country solely for magicians.” Aladdin also concludes that the magicians at Magnoshutatt are somehow connected to Dark Magic after coming into contact with the black rukh in his class.

After learning that Titus defected to Magnoshutatt, the Leam Empire finally declares war. With the powerful Fanalis Corp. leading the attack, the Leam military begins its invasion! As Aladdin stands between the two nations to stop them with his powers as a Magi, some familiar faces come to his aid!

Now with even the Kou Empire entering the war, countless black rukh cover the skies. The clash of nations may be just the beginning of the end of this world!
