so it's ACGT studio, at least the trailer looks decent. I like how they start with "from the author of Magi, Ohtaka Shinobu", now you know how great Magi is

Looks really underwhelming and just continues to make it feel like another season for Magi is just completely hopeless.

As a Magi fan, I’m looking forward to it. Always hoped for a 4th season tho.
Anyways, animation is looking pretty average. We will see.

It's a mixture of both


And this is a spin-off manga adaptation?
Yes, from the same creator as well

Is this "real" Sinbad or just a pure fantasy like Fate?

Well in that case, you should definitely check out the Sinbad no Bouken side story anime as well....It's a prequel to Magi focusing on the character of Sinbad and its too really good as well

Well, I was interested in this title primarily because, as a resident of a naval city, I really like shows with good graphics and sea adventures.

I wonder if this will be as good as Magi.
Yes it's a wonderful franchise with good world building. The fantasy aspect of it is really great in particular.

Magi is a very good and enjoyable series, but I'm hesitant to recommend the anime to you because even though it got 2 seasons, it has unfortunately become one of those anime that's stuck in limbo for about 7 years now, with no sight of a future season(s) to complete the rest of the story

But if you don't mind being forced to read the manga after you finish S2, then I highly recommend that you give it a shot

Is Magi a really good franchise? I am often advised to start watching this, but I have not yet dared to start.

I've been a big fan of Magi for years now and I always meant to read Shinobu Ohtaka's new manga but never got around to doing so, but what I'm hoping is that likewise with Magi, this anime will impress me enough whereas I pick up the manga after the anime is done airing
