It's pretty good although they had a month long break due to a spinoff series starting or something. If you watched the anime and liked it definitely check out the manga, some really cool stuff happening
x2. Though I really don't get why they had to change stuff and make an anime original ending for S1.
I mean, they adapted the rest of it pretty faithfully and it wasn't like it was a bad cut off point in the manga so it just seems so...pointless?
Anyway I LOL'd when Kouen turned up and destroyed Alibaba's chance of showing off his new awesome moves.
Oh and the spinoff series is the Adventure of Sinbad. So it's pretty much how he became what he is today, it's quite interesting.
