In the small, impoverished Tison Village of the Parthevia Empire, a boy, Sinbad, is born to the jaded ex-soldier Badr and his kind-hearted wife Esra. His birth creates a radiant surge throughout the rukh, a declaration of a singularity to those who stand at the pinnacle of magical might: the "Child of Destiny" is here. Despite his country being plagued by economic instability and the repercussions of war, Sinbad leads a cheerful life—until a stranger's arrival shatters his peaceful world, and tragedy soon befalls him.

Years later, mysterious edifices called "dungeons" have been erected all over the world. Rumored to contain great power and treasures, these dungeons piqued the interest of adventurers and armies alike; though to this day, none have returned therefrom. Sinbad, now 14, has grown into a charming and talented young boy. Inspired by the shocking events of his childhood and by his father's words, he yearns to begin exploring the world beyond his village. As though orchestrated by fate, Sinbad meets an enigmatic traveler named Yunan. Stirred by Sinbad's story and ambitions, Yunan directs him to a dungeon which he claims holds the power Sinbad needs to achieve his goals—the "power of a king."

Magi: Sinbad no Bouken tells the epic saga of Sinbad's early life as he travels the world, honing his skill and influence, while gathering allies and power to become the High King of the Seven Seas.

Every Magi fan's favorite OP character Sinbad gets his own series. Being a big fan of Magi myself I was very excited about this.

Fair warning, if you haven't watched Magi, you really won't get the same satisfaction from watching this. I suggest watching the Magi series first before watching this.

It begins with Sinbad's birth. Showing the background story of how Sinbad ends up becoming the swashbuckling man he is in the Magi series. These episodes drew me in right away. If you're a fan of the Magi series you will really enjoy this part. I loved being able to see a baby Sinbad interact with ...

Mixed Feelings
I have mixed feelings about the existence of the Anime.

So, as a fan of the Magie series, I am waiting for a third season of Magi... and when I ended the second season and the OVA of Sinbad with 5 episodes came out, I was like: Okay, it's cool, I want to know more about Sinbad and his comerades...
But the 5 episodes did not statisfied me a bit.

So now we have this! Why does it exist? The 5 episodes I have watched (OVA) are in this new Anime plus some other episodes (which are perfect, no doubt).
But why did they not countinued the OVA ...

It’s so bad it’s hard to watch. This sentence perfectly sums up this anime. Unfortunately, Sinbad no Bouken was a huge mistake and I’ll explain why.

I’ve been reading Magi’s manga and I’ve watched a few episodes of the anime. I was so interested in this one because who doesn’t love Sinbad? He’s one of the more intriguing characters of this franchise. I remember that, surrounded by all the hype, I even made a FB fanpage about him when it aired.

But Sinbad from Sinbad no Bouken is just so bad, he’s personality is flat, there’s nothing interesting about him. He overcomes every struggle without a problem ...
