In a sand-swept land of caravans, brigands and adventurers, legends tell of the ominous dungeon towers that suddenly appeared 14 years ago. It's said that by clearing one of these prisons, you can obtain treasure beyond your wildest dreams, and even form a contract with magical genies of immense power - assuming you make it out alive. In this world, Alibaba is a young rogue who wants nothing more than to get rich by clearing all of the world's dungeons, starting with the nearby tower Amon; Aladdin is a curious young boy with a magical flute and a hidden ability; and Morgiana is a slave who can't escape her chains. As their fates intertwine, the three find themselves wandering the land, battling powerful enemies, and taking a stand against powerful forces that seek to corrupt the weak and innocent.

Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail

Lucy is a seventeen-year-old mage with the power to summon stellar spirits, but what she really wants to do is join a guild - and not just any guild. She has her eyes set on Fairy Tail, a notoriously reckless and outrageous group of magic users who are likely to be drunk or destroying buildings and towns in the process of completing a job! While in town one day Lucy meets a perpetually-seasick boy named Natsu who, through a series of events, reveals to her that he's none other than the fire-eating mage Salamander of Fairy Tail! Lucy is finally able to join Fairy Tail and quickly begins to take on odd jobs with Natsu and his gang for fame and profit. Along with her fiery friend, Happy the flying cat, Natsu's archrival Gray and their overseer the invincible and beautiful Erza, Lucy sets forth for epic adventures that leave an epic amount of destruction in their wake. After all, destroying a city or five doesn't matter as long as they get the job done... right?!

Fairy Tail and Magi may as well be siblings. They're both set in a fantasy-like universe where magic users are a common sight to behold. The two series also include limitless adventures, interesting/unique character designs, bonds between friends, and numerous battles. While both shows tend to be pretty silly, they're not afraid to get serious. If you're interested in magic/fantasy and you liked one, I'm sure you would like the other. 


These anime's both are set in the fantasy era, but not only that but both are based around questing, magic, friends and that whole idea of fighting evil for a greater good which in both these cases is to proctect there friends and families.


They are both set around fantasys and super power, the character and actually drawn nicely rather than those of sloppy and non human look imo, I really love the theme of both, which is protecting close friends, it's very cool


Both of these animes center around friendship and fantasy action, magic being one of the driving forces of both their universes. Fairy Tail has a bigger cast of characters, but both main casts go on escapades to defeat whatever evil gets in their way.


If you love Magi and Aladdin, then watch Fairy Tail. Both centers around magic and like Aladdin, Natsu too is exceptional being one of the few users of dragon slaying magic. They both have the potential in them, but, both they too inexperienced and must learn and experience a lot more. They are both innocent and treasure friendship. Watching them is fun and you just can't help but love both of them. 


These shows are both fun, light hearted shonens with tons of good action and great character development. Magi is a little serious than fairytail which is nice, but fairytail has much more emotional scenes. both great storytelling and memorable characters!! 


If you liked Magi you will also like Fairy Tail because they are very similar in that they both have Magic users in them and they are both set in a world where magic actually erxists and everyone knows that it exists. I also like that they characters all go on long adventures with their friends and also meet new ones. While on their adventures they can change other peoples life drastically.

If you liked Magi or Hunter x Hunter, you'd like the other. Both series have a group of characters who go on an adventure filled with strange sights. One major similarity between the series are the naive main characters (Aladdin and Gon, respectively), whom see the world from a diffferent perspective. Both series have a charm to them that will make you smile throughout, yet will also have darker moments that are unexpected. 


Both Gon and Alladin share very similar traits, and they impact the people around them with their naivety and strong will.

Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist

Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...

Fairly astonished to not see these two recommended with each other so far. Both are adventures of sorts with a very similar mix of battles, dark moments, comedy (but minimally/not over the top) and a fantasy backdrop. Once Magi gets past the more random beginning few episodes, they have a similar feel for sure. I preferred FMA by far as Magi eventually turns very generic shounen (as far as the crazily extended boring shounen battles), but fans of one will appreciate the other to some extent.
