Narrator: Magi: Adventure of Sinbad. Volume 5 special edition with OVA.

The DVD bundle with the special edition of the fifth volume of the manga on December 18. The first OVA episode shipped with the manga's third volume in May, and the second episode shipped with the fourth volume in August.

Keiji Fujiwara and Takahiro Sakurai will also join the cast in the third episode, reprising their Magi television anime roles of Hinahoho and Jafar, respectively. Daisuke Ono is returning to play the young Sinbad. Other cast 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.
