Shogakukan announced on Sunday that an anime adaptation of the Magi spin-off manga Magi: Sinbad no Bōken (Magi: Adventure of Sinbad) has been green-lit. The adaptation of Shinobu Ohtaka and Yoshifumi Ōtera's manga will be bundled with the special edition of the third compiled volume, which is scheduled to ship in Japan on May 16. In addition, special information regarding the anime will be published in the second compiled volume, which is scheduled to ship in Japan on Friday.
Daisuke Ono will return to play the young Sinbad, and an "extravagant staff" is handling the project.
A 70-page "prototype" of the manga with art by Ōtera was bundled with the first Blu-ray Disc of the anime in 2012. The manga's prologue also ran in Weekly Shonen Sunday later that year. After beginning a full serialization in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine, it moved to the publisher's web comic site "Ura Sunday" last year.
