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.

A tip at the beginning, look for a good version of the anime, preferably with a running time of about 81 minutes and in Japanese dub with subtitles. These versions are a bit read more

Sinbad's Adventures...In the current era, we have other anime titles of Sinbad; in 1975 we have Arabian Nights: Sindbad no Bouken (TV), and in 2014 we have Magi: Sinbad no Bouken, in 2015 there's Sindbad: The Flying Princess and the Secret Island.

It's really sad to review such a heritage anime especially at these times; anime in the past overall wasn't as complex as today's anime; at least for me.

It's too bland, it lacks complexity, it lacks explanations, it's so random and stupid; alot of characters decisions were irrational, those unreasonable unexplaned decisions were just there for the plot advance that only kids will buy it. read more

i only managed to find the dub for this one. Sindbad's adventures was a much needed change of pace from the same old character designs TOEI was employing - direct imitation of Disney movies of the time with much poorer production value and quality, unfortunately. You even see some experimentalism make a return here, especially with how some effects for the ocean and the treasure were animated using sand.

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 read more
