Possibly the Second “original” anime of TeleAsia after Bakuman.

Anime Pilipinas has learned  that the fantasy-adventure anime Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic may be airing on TeleAsia Filipino very soon.

According to sources, the anime, which is loosely based from the “Arabian Nights” folk tale, is currently in its dubbing production and will be hitting the Filipino-language Asian entertainment channel’s program lineup soon.

This, after the anime was passed by different media entities in the Philippines due to possible issues with its content.


It is not known if the channel will air the Second season of the said anime, which has just concluded its run in Japan recently.


This story is about the flow of fate and the battle to keep the world on the right path. Aladdin is a boy who has set out to explore the world after being trapped in a room for most of his life. His best friend is a flute with a djinn in it named Ugo. Soon enough, Aladdin discovers he is a Magi, a magician who chooses kings, and he was born to choose kings who will follow the righteous path, battling against those who want to destroy fate. Follow his adventures as he meets others from 1001 Arabian Nights, like Ali Baba and Sinbad, and fights to keep the balance of world in check!  (Synopsis from MyAnimeList.net)

If aired, this will be TeleAsia Filipino’s second “original” anime title after the premiere of Bakuman, which started airing last May 09.
