Japanese publisher Shogakukan is listing that it will ship the limited edition seventh volume of Shinobu Ohtaka's and Yoshifumi Ōtera's spinoff manga Magi: Sinbad no Bōken (Magi: Adventure of Sinbad) with the fifth OVA on July 15. The limited edition with the anime DVD will retail for 3,218 yen (about US$25). The regular edition of the volume without the anime DVD will ship on July 17.
The fifth OVA volume is titled "Meikyū Valefor Kōryaku-hen Kōhen" (The Capture of Valefor Dungeon Last Volume). The new OVA will conclude the arc that follows Jafar, Sinbad, and Hinahoho as they try to capture the sixth dungeon Valefor. The limited edition sixth volume (pictured at right), which bundled the fourth OVA, shipped on April 15.
Shogakukan's listing for the seventh volume also includes a comment from the manga's editor, who states, "With this volume the OVA series is temporarily finished." The editor adds that when there is a new development, fans can check Weekly Shonen Sunday, the Ura Sunday website, or the "Manga ONE" app for details. The editor then noted, "Someday soon, there will also be an important announcement!?"
