アラビアンナイト シンドバッドの冒険 - Arabian Nights: Sinbad's Adventures is one of Toei Animation's early works and already pretty old. Gladly, I'll tell you something about its creation, but in order for you to enjoy the anime as well, I would like to ask you a small favor. Try to get rid of CGI-pampered eyes and the idea that an anime that is well over 50 years old can or should be compared to today's animations.

Unfortunately, the characters continue to remain paper thin and uninteresting. while their designs are quite a detailed improvement from the paper motion humans in the previous TOEI doga films, there is little depth to them. The movies ...
