Magi's 1st Blu-ray to Bundle Exclusive Sinbad Manga
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The Japanese retail site Neowing reports that the first limited-edition Blu-ray Disc for the anime series Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic will bundle a 70-page prototype manga titled Sinbad no Bōken (The Adventures of Sinbad). The manga is a collaboration between Magi creator Shinobu Ohtaka and artist Yoshifumi Ōtera.
The limited first pressing of the first Blu-ray Disc volume will ship on January 30. Along with the first two episodes on a single disc and the manga, it will include a disc of bonus content with a digest video and a making-of video for the "Maharajan Eve" event, as well as textless opening and ending animation sequences. Voice cast members Kaori Ishihara, Yuuki Kaji, and Haruka Tomatsu offer an audio commentary of the first episode. The volume also bundles a mail-away form for advance tickets sales to an April 28 event, 3 Yunan stickers, an 8-page booklet with cast interviews and Magi news, and a jacket drawn by character designer Toshifumi Akai.
The first Blu-ray volume retails for 7,140 yen (about US$90), and there is a separate, less expensive DVD volume with no listed extras.
