Re: Magi 169
Finally caught up with this series. I'm glad there is a series that is comparable in quality to One Piece in regards to keeping plot in order, explaining vital points, and creating good background stories for prominent characters and settings.
That being said, in regards to the barrier breaking through the force of conventional gunpowder I don't see it as that unrealistic. Like some have mentioned, it was a constant barrage of exploding gunpowder which caused a point in the barrier to crack. Once there is a crack in something it's pretty easy to break the whole thing down. What worries me more is this "power" that the Chancellor is talking about. I'm hoping it's not some cheap deus ex machina ploy that will be used to overwhelm the Laem empire's army into submission. Although, following the writing patterns of this story, I don't think it will go down that route for an easy victory.
Good chapter. I can't wait until Alibaba shows off what he has learned.

Those who stand at the top determine what's wrong and what's right! This very place is neutral ground! Justice will prevail, you say? But of course it will! Whoever wins this war becomes justice!”
