The official website for Shogakukan's Jisedai World Hobby Fair '12 Summer event shows a giveaway pamphlet for Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine, which reveals the television anime adaptation of Shinobu Ohtaka's Magi fantasy adventure manga. The manga re-imagines tales from the classic story One Thousand and One Nights (also known as Arabian Nights).
Earlier this year, Masaki Nawada, the editor-in-chief of Weekly Shonen Sunday, revealed that the manga has a "huge project" in development. The domain "project-Magi.com" has been registered and is currently pointing to the name server "ns.sme.co.jp," a domain owned by Sony Music Entertainment.
