Sinbad: I won't abandon a single person!

Text: The betrayal of a native land
Barbarossa: Know your place. Die like a man.
Drakon: Barbarossa! I will leave this dungeon!
Hinahoho: The beast has been revived!
Text: Falling from the heavens
Fallan: The falling of the angel has begun in this child.
Valefor: Stop! The human body can't withstand that power!
Text: Ja'far's past that is revealed
Man: If you save this child, you will fall into Hell and not be able to return from the darkness.
Ja'far: I had to do that to live...!
Sinbad: If you don't have a place, I'll give you one. I'll become your path for living.
Sinbad: Can you hear me!? I won't let my comrades die!
Sinbad: Not yet! Don't die! Ja'far!

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. Keiji Fujiwara and Takahiro Sakurai joined the cast in the third episode, reprising their Magi television anime roles of Hinahoho and Jafar, respectively.
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" in 2013.
