This year's 18th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine announced on Wednesday that Magi creator Shinobu Ohtaka will launch a new manga titled Orient in the 26th issue on May 30. The fantasy series takes place during Japan's Warring States Period, where Japan is ruled by "___." A 15-year-old boy named Musashi will stand up to ___ with the help of a certain special power.
Magi inspired two 25-episode anime series: Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic in 2012 and the sequel Magi: The Kingdom of Magic in 2013. Yoshifumi Ōtera is drawing an ongoing spinoff manga titled Magi: Adventure of Sinbad, which first debuted as a bonus on the Magi anime's home video release before launching as a full series. The spinoff in turn inspired an original video anime series and a television anime series.
