It’s time to head back to the kingdom of Balbadd as we take a look at KAZE’s release of Magi – The Labyrinth of Magic – Season 1 Part 2, but what can you expect from this final instalment of Season 1? Find out in our Blu-ray Review.


Aladdin has yet to regain consciousness from the battle with the fallen magi Judar. Meanwhile, as the third prince of Balbadd, Alibaba tries to stop his older brother King Ahbmad from turning Balbadd into a slave-exporting nation. But his plans are thwarted by none other than Cassim, his childhood friend from the slums, now transformed into a Dark Djinn by the Dark Metal Vessel. Cassim tries to strike down the royal family for causing their citizens to suffer for many years.

Cassim’s attacks crush Aibaba both physically and mentally, but he gets back up again and again. Just then, a friend reaches out a helping hand! With Aladdin’s support once again, can Alibaba rescue his country, people, and Cassim from the darkness?

Multiple Kaze Releases Delayed Until September

We have just been informed that multiple Kaze UK releases, most of which are expected to be released next week, have now been delayed until September 2013.

Titles affected include Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan – Season 1 Part 2, Bleach Complete Series 11 and Tiger & Bunny – Part 4, each of which were being released into the UK by Kaze via Manga Entertainment UK thus making the pile of delays even larger to Kaze’s already “impressive” delay streak.

According to the information we received the delay is due to stock not being able to reach the suppliers in time, so consequently the delays are rather minimal. Here is a rundown of the new release dates:

2nd September 2013:

Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan – Season 1 Part 2
Tiger & Bunny –  Part 4

11th September 2013:

Bleach Complete Series 11

It’s worth noting that while the discs / artwork have the Manga Entertainment UK logo on them they have no involved with the production, supplement (etc) as this is all sorted via Kaze’s end, which just recently has been rather appalling.
