Many aspects of the upcoming action adventure, Magi, are suspicious in whether they will successfully deliver – one facet however which one shouldn’t worry over is the cuteness of the pink-haired slave girl character.
Key visuals have come, and this poverty exposed little girl is already treating her fans to some aesthetic pleasure – minus the eroticism often seen in most anime female artwork, unless of course, one has a fetish for chains and domination. Yet leaving the special interests alone, and focusing solely on the assortment of visage sketches above, destitution has certainly never been so adorable.
Before doting over her moe qualities however, it should be said that the very outer line forming the top of her head, the curve of her hair and skull, is truly beautiful in terms of contour. It defines a believable and realistic head shape – whilst simultaneously drawing the eye to both her facial region, as well as towards the physique below the shoulders, which is exemplified well within the full body illustration below.
Her hair is the initial enticing factor, leading towards the body – and then her remaining finely developing female anatomy from there continues to absorb attention through arches and whatnot.
Depending on what expression the visage exhibits, which is typically the first area of physical reaction, it may also affect or coincide with the posture or pose she looks to have as a whole – an instance of such being seen in the leftmost look of embarrassment on the bottom row of the image above. Her redfaced distress incites her to incline her back much more than she, or anyone else for that matter, normally would – and a multitude of further implications can be grasped from there.
On that note, it looks that this slave girl isn’t all indifference – and she does have some moments within the series where she shows off a charm of femininity beyond appearance, on a sentimental level, which incidentally also goes on to give some visual gratification.
Now as for the series itself, if Magi manages to be as enjoyable as glaring at this slave girl – it will be quite a memorable series. The characters don’t appear to be an issue based on the designs released till now, and neither is the animation a worry as per the PV – hopefully, the plot proves equally solid.
