Magi – 7

The setting of an anime is visually expressed through the various architectures and environments.  Magi has featured a number of diverse physical settings thus far and has done well communicating these to us through its use of dazzling and detailed backgrounds and sceneries.

Magi – 1

The setting for Magi is a dream-come-true for anime fans like myself, a stone-structured Arabic metropolis nestled in some barren, sunbaked deserts and beleaguered with danger, magic, and adventure around every street corner.  For the characters residing in this world, however, it’s nothing more than a living hell.  It’s a society wherein class dictates your fate and (lack of) fortune and any challenge against this system is met with severe and crippling punishment.  Still, this doesn’t stop Alibaba and Aladdin from confronting the established society of Magi though their difference in power and knowledge lead to completely different results.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica – 4

Just how long have they walking? And where exactly are they walking to?

The world in Puella Magi Madoka Magica is purely fascinating.  The colors gently absorb you into their world.  The light draws out details and strengthens the moment. The metropolis as a whole, with its complete absurdity of the architecture and brainless geography of space, simply give shape and structure to this very unique setting.  With the novelty of the witch’s world waning in each episode, with this being the worst so far, I turn to the noteworthy style of the real world.
