The Journey is an animation set around the story of the Elephant from the Quran, knowing that I entered to watch the movie with conflicted thoughts as going the religious route for a first anime by Manga Productions was a bold move.


It's a story from the Quran so there wasn't much of a surprise of what I expected. Unfortunately with that in mind the animation was bound to very severe constraints on what they could do.


The art was amazing in my opinion, nothing too wacky that deserves a 10 but it was decent. The major downfall in this anime was the pathetic powerpoint slides for read more

As of the writing of the review, only two projects are attributed to Manga Productions (including this project) so keep that in mind for the rest of the review. Toei Animations does not need any introduction. I watched the original Arabic version.

The Journey is an ambitious but flawed experience. It is ambitious because it gambles its reception over the audience's acceptance or interest in Arabic culture. There is very little to take from the film if you're already well acquainted with Arabic culture and the Quranic legends. As a person who lived through and heard all those stories multiple times in his life, I'd say read more

The Journey.. this Anime i been waiting for a long time and finally I had Chance to watch it.

The way they telling the story in this anime I didn't like that. I know story it's from Quran but I felt little boring and they telling us the stories like it's a kids animation not adults that what I felt so I give (7/10) for the story.

Thank you Toei Animation for drawing a masterpiece Art Even the art is nothing like New Anime films and series but I really love it.

This Anime got a great Characters and Voice Actors. Every Main Character looks brave and Manly read more

To benefit, read the entire article because it contains very important information in some paragraphs

Well, for the first manga production, this is a good start
The film talks about a story from one of the Abrahamic religions (Islam), and the story is quoted from their heavenly book (the Qur’an), so it was a good idea, as we do not usually receive works related to a religion other than Buddhism or Christianity (religions spread in Japan), and it was a good initiative
1 The story:
The film talks about the Year of the Elephant with its Arabic name, which means 1,500 years ago
According to my later research on the read more
