    It is not a filler episode.

      You’re right, it’s probably not technically a filler episode. It’s not like they’ve reached the level of [insert name of any long running shounen action show here]. But for me, when more than half the episode is spent on something that’s fun but has nothing to do with the story, then it becomes a filler episode.

    Naw man, totally not a filler episode. Some things were mashed up and rearranged from the manga, but overall it had all the important bits- More depth on Sinbad’s generals and how he met some of them, Alibaba receiving his father’s sword, Amon transferring over to it (that took a bit longer in the manga lol) Morgiana expressing what her old shackles mean to her, the arrival of Hakuryuu, Aladdin’s growing desire to learn more magic and be inventive with it, and last but not least Hakuryuu expressing his wish to ruin the empire!

    I really hated the trumpet/sax bmg they had going on in the first half of the ep, and I’m definitely not liking all the little tweaks they’ve started to make for this adaption. I’m holding back though with the hopes that they’re just doing it to speed things up for the 24 episode deadline, and they’ll continue the storyline properly should there be a second season >.<

      I’m not liking the small tweaks either, Alibaba’s snake bite being my primary concern. Also, Amon’s transferral should have taken Alibaba a few weeks of practising with the new sword – I understand it saves time so other scenes can be animated, but the way it was executed seemed a bit cheap.

        Gaaah, I know, I’m so worried about the snake bite >.< we see Hakuryuu's new arm in the ed pics so it seems like certain things are still going to happen, but…I just donno how they're gonna swing this…ugh, it's worrisome, very worrisome…
