After the Magi spin-off anime based on Ohtaka Shinobu and Yoshifumi Ohtera’s manga Adventure of Sinbad was confirmed for the spring season, the first commercial for the series was quickly released to keep up the excitement. Set thirty years before the Magi manga’s main adventures, this anime series follows four OAD episodes directed by Miyao Yoshikazu of Hellsing, who returns to direct the full series at AOS Project with Daisuke Ono reprising his role as Sinbad. You can catch a quick glimpse of their work below.
