From the south of the Arabian Peninsula, the great General Abraha and his mighty army trample their way north to the holy city of Mecca. Their demands are ruthless: Mecca's surrender, its people's enslavement, and the Kaaba's destruction. Despite advice to withdraw and save themselves, a few brave Meccan men remain to fight. Among them is Aws Ibn Jubair, a humble potter who abandoned a life of sin to dedicate himself to honor and faith.

As the enemy troops approach in the dead of night, the vastly outnumbered Meccans work to raise morale. The night takes an unexpected shift with the reappearance of an atheist mercenary named Zurara—Aws' old accomplice who never went straight. Although Zurara joins only for food and pay, the intriguing tale of Aws' path to religion convinces him that Mecca is worth protecting. Bracing for the inevitable bloodbath, the two former friends reunite to defend the only land and faith that allow them to truly forgive themselves.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...

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 ...
