Magi: Adventure of Sinbad (マギ シンドバッドの冒険, Magi: Shindobaddo no Bōken) is a Japanese manga series written by Shinobu Ohtaka and illustrated by Yoshifumi Ohtera. It is a spin-off and a prequel of Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic. It began serialization in Shogakukan's Weekly Shōnen Sunday in May 2013, before being moved to Shogakukan's website Ura Sunday in September of the same year and published until April 2018.

An original video animation (OVA) was released from May 2014 to July 2015 bundled with some volumes of the manga before an anime television series was announced to start airing in April 2016.

Plot[edit]

Magi: Adventure of Sinbad follows the origins of Sinbad, who years later would be the King of Sindria. Originally living in the Parthevia Empire with his father Badr, a war veteran and his mother Esra, Sinbad loses his father due to the war against the Reim Empire, and spends his youth helping the local villagers and tending to his ill mother until he meets and shelters the mysterious Yunan, unaware that he is a Magi. By request of his mother and learning of his determination to change the world for the better, Yunan decides to guide Sinbad and instructs him to challenge the Dungeon "Baal" that appeared in the border between Partevia and Reim, and whose treasures were still unclaimed as thousands of warriors from both empires had challenged it, but none of them survived, except by Sinbad himself and a Parthevian noble whom he nicknamed "Drakon". After defeating Drakon in battle, Sinbad conquers Baal and gains the allegiance of the Djinn residing there, thus becoming the first ever Dungeon Capturer. Sinbad returns home in time to have one last encounter with his mother at her deathbed and leaves Parthevia to start his own journey to change the world.

Manga[edit]

Magi: Adventure of Sinbad is written by Shinobu Ohtaka and illustrated by Yoshifumi Ohtera. It was released as a 70-page prototype manga with the first volume of the Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic anime series.[2] It was later expanded into a regular series, which began serializing in Shogakukan's Weekly Shōnen Sunday from May 18[3] to June 26, 2013,[4] and later moved to Shogakukan's webcomic site Ura Sunday, from September 18, 2013[5] to April 25, 2018.[6] As of July 2018, nineteen tankōbon volumes have been published.[7]

Anime[edit]

An OVA produced by Lay-duce was announced in January 2014.[8] The first episode was released with the manga's third volume on May 16, 2014.[9] The second episode was released with the manga's fourth volume on August 18, 2014.[10] The third episode was released with the fifth volume on December 18, 2014.[11] The fourth episode was released with the manga's sixth volume on April 15, 2015.[12] The fifth and final episode was released with the manga's seventh volume on July 15, 2015.[13]

An anime television series was announced in September 2015 with the same staff from the OVA series.[14] It was scheduled to begin airing on April 15, 2016 in the Animeism programming block,[15] but due to breaking news regarding the Kumamoto earthquake that hit the Kumamoto Prefecture in Japan on April 14, 2016, it was delayed.[16][17] Instead, it began airing on April 23.[18] The opening theme is "Spotlight" performed by PENGUIN RESEARCH and the ending theme is "Polaris" performed by Fujifabric.[15]
