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.

Being true to ourselves and our beliefs is something that shapes a person. From holding on to things that we hold dear and blindly believing in the dreams that we one day hope to achieve, our world becomes a little bit better, and in the words of Sinbad, we become someone who is 'special.' One of the many, chosen just for this day and age to change everything around them.

Born to one of the bravest warriors of Parthevia, Sinbad soon realizes the truth of life and the society surrounding him at an early age. With no ...

There's no spoilers here, don't worry.

Well well, i don't remember clearly what i saw first, the manga or the adaptation.

Anyway, GO AND READ THE MANGA, the experience is defintetly superior. But, do it after you read Magi, i made the mistake of reading it before and well, i gave myself some interesting and not totally wanted spoilers lol.

The adaptation is decent to say at least. They chopped a few parts of important information along the series, parts that i considered important for all the people that didn't read the manga (Such as Sinbad's very first negotiation). Those parts helped greatly to understand the setting and ...

The worst anime I have ever seen (out of 130+).

This is the typical generic adventure anime with a protagonist who is recruiting people to fulfill his objective. The problem is that the characters are flat and with little charisma, and the plot is nothing to write home about.

- The story is uninteresting (except for the first chapters). There is a turning point where it goes from being a more or less decent anime to a boring anime.
- The protagonist is very poorly built, without evolution and almighty. Some other characters may be interesting, but nothing to highlight.
- There are no villains as such (or at ...
