Here is the final frame of episode 25 of Magi: The Kingdom of Magic:

enter image description here

It is the final end card of not just the episode, but the series. It shows after the credits and ending song. The exclamation mark in the text implies to me that it says something like, "Thanks for watching!" or "See you next season!". Since those are guesses, what does it actually say?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is purely a Japanese language question, not related to anime and its content.

  • @AkiTanaka ??? Did you not see the picture? It is from an anime, and concerning something related to that anime which non-Japanese speakers could not understand. If I posted a random picture that someone took while on vacation of a Japanese menu and asked what it said, then yeah, that would be off topic. But this is from an anime. My question is primarily about the anime and just happens to involve the Japanese language. If it were written in Korean or Thai or some in-story code, I'd still ask the same thing. What was the anime staff trying to communicate?

    I'm afraid this is an analogy to what SO called a boat-programming problem: just because the Japanese text is from an anime, then it is considered as anime-related question. However, I may be biased because I more-or-less understand Japanese. I'll leave the decision to the community.

  • As far as I know this meta question is is still the consensus view on Japanese language questions, and the answers disallow this sort of question where a simple direct translation is all that is required and the language is unrelated to any story considerations. As such I agree with @AkiTanaka that this is off-topic.

  • @AkiTanaka we have had questions asking about what certain text in an anime says like this question and this question but we don't make a habit of being japanese translators. considering that this is an end card i would assume there's no dialog spoken and there's no other visible text so to me it does seem odd for a subtitle so i'm inclined to leave it open though the question could add if this is a subtitle or not and if so if there was english subs though before asking why maybe this is different
