My expectations were met seeing those OVA's its bound to have an adaptation to cover the whole story of Sinbad.Hype though seems to be less for me I would have preferred if they made this before kingdom of magic or just release season 3 of magi but hey its better than nothing, I look forward to this!

I think the "special airing of Magi" was referring to the TV program that aired in Japan discussing about the Magi universe and the latest information regarding the franchise, according to this.
I'm just guessing, I could be wrong. .-.

Oh, I see, I was hoping it was something like a short OVA, or similar.

Thank you for answering :)

Let's hope they don't fuck up as bad as they did with Magi

Honestly, it was only a matter of time.

Keep the quality of the OVA's up and this will be worth watching.

Woulda preferred a new season for the main story, not big on Sinbad, I'll pass.
