Magi: Adventure of Sinbad Anime Spin-off's 2nd Episode Previewed in Trailer

posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Final episode of anime starring Young King of the seven seas ships with limited-edition manga August 18

Shogakukan's Web Sunday site began streaming a 30-second commercial for the second episode of the original video anime adaptation of the spin-off manga Magi: Sinbad no Bōken (Magi: Adventure of Sinbad) on Monday.

Sinbad: I had decided... That with my own power, I would change this country... This world!
Drakon: Throw away your life for this country! That is the pride of a Parthevia soldier! To die for your country is an instinct!
Text: The adventures of the Young King of the seven seas
Text: The man who put his life on the line for the country's people
Sinbad: A country exists in order to protect the people who live there! There's no need for a country that has thrown away its people!
Text: The second half of the Dungeon Baal Capture arc
Sinbad: Is this the power of the king they spoke of!?
Text: The mysteries of the dungeon that are revealed
Creature: Who will become the king?

The second half of the anime will be bundled with the special edition of Shinobu Ohtaka and Yoshifumi Ōtera's fourth manga volume, which is scheduled to ship in Japan on August 18. Daisuke Ono returns to play the young Sinbad. Other casts members include Akira Ishida as Yunan, Tomokazu Sugita as Drakon, Ai Kayano as Serendine, Katsuyuki Konishi as Badr, and Yōko Hikasa as Esra.

A 70-page "prototype" of the manga with art by Ōtera was bundled with the first Blu-ray Disc of the Magi 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.

This Magi OVA is part of Shonen Sunday's "Sunday Anime Project," a wave of new anime adaptations that began in 2013. Previous adaptations included last year's 16th Detective Conan film, Detective Conan: The Eleventh Striker.
