Synopsis

Not so long ago, mysterious structures called dungeons began appearing all over the world. No one knows what they are or how they came to be, but adventurers and armies around the world instantly took interest in them. Thousands set out to explore the dungeons, but so far, not a single person has returned.

In a Parthevia port, a young boy is about to make a name for himself. Sinbad is good-natured, strong, and craving adventure. A kind deed leads to his meeting with Yunan, an enigmatic traveler who is far more powerful than his frivolous personality lets on. Yunan instructs Sinbad to attain the "power of the king" and change the world—by conquering a dungeon. The eager boy readily accepts, setting out on the grand adventure he so craved.

Taking place 15 years before the events of the original series, Sinbad no Bouken chronicles Sinbad's youth as a dungeon conqueror. Along the way, the budding adventurer and merchant will have to face many obstacles, but anything is possible with the power of a king.

[UPDATED]

Like anything to do with Sinbad, the oh great and glorious conqueror of the Seven Seas, it's mostly the same but they add some depth into the way he goes about his life and how he got to where he is.

With the third OVA released I couldn't wait to watch it and I did straight away, even being in area with little to no internet, I loaded the episode and watched it when it was done and man did I enjoy it! It was everything I wanted (well except the cliffhanger :/).

I must admit, the tale of Sinbad- King of Sindria, Conqueror of the Seven Seas, a legendary man whose mythical adventures have been woven into countless movies, books, and cloth- is a rather difficult story to tell. So far, Magi season one and two have both done exceptionally well in portraying Sinbad as a grown man in charge of a nation. Rather than sticking to just the classic mold of "Sinbad the great sailor!" or "Sinbad the witty, flirty, virtuous bad boy!", they add depth by darkening the inner workings of his tactical mind. However, the same effort in characterization was not applied to either read more

I'm probably just really biased but I adore this show. The five ova's were amazing but this was written better and was detailed.

Story-

Amazing, watching magi, Sindria its king and the eight generals were the most interesting for me so getting to see Sinbad starting his journey is awesome. I know nothing about the manga and how far it goes in the story but I would have loved to see more characters. (Yamuraiha, Sharrkan, Masrur) Also I want to find out how Drakon became what he is now??? And how its now Spartos instead of Mystras.

Animation + sound-

Great as always. Pretty much the same as the read more
