The show will premiere on April 15 on MBS, TBS, CBC, and BS-TBS in the "Animeism" programming block.

The manga has already inspired five OVA episodes that have shipped with previous volumes of the manga. The main staff and cast are returning from the OVA series. Yoshikazu Miyao (Inazuma Eleven, S.A) is directing the series at studio Lay-duce (Classroom Crisis) off scripts by Taku Kishimoto (Haikyu!!, Silver Spoon). Souichirou Sako is designing the characters for animation and is also serving as chief animation director, and Tomohiro Ōkubo is composing the music. Penguin Research will perform the opening theme song "Spotlight," and Fujifabric will perform the ending theme song "Polaris."

Daisuke Ono is returning from the main Magi television series and the OVAs to play Sinbad. Other returning cast members include Akira Ishida as Yunan, Tomokazu Sugita as Drakon, Ai Kayano as Serendine, Katsuyuki Konishi as Badr, Yōko Hikasa as Esra, Keiji Fujiwara as Hinahoho, Takahiro Sakurai as Jafar, Ayumi Fujimura as Pipirika, Takehito Koyasu as Barbarossa, and Hiroki Touchi as Baal.

The manga is a spinoff of Ohtaka's Magi manga. The series takes place 30 years before the events of Magi and focuses on Sinbad's journey to become king.
