Magi: Adventure of Sinbad is a spin-off from the original Magi anime series, which aired in 2012. This 13-episode series follows the early years of the titular character Sinbad, a charismatic and ambitious young man who dreams of becoming king and unifying the world. The show premiered on April 15, 2016, and was produced by the Tokyo Broadcasting System.

Tomokazu Sugita voices Sinbad, a skilled fighter and natural-born leader who sets out on a journey to conquer the treacherous dungeons that dot the world in search of untold riches and power. Along the way, he meets other individuals who come to follow him on his quest, including the impressive swordsman Drakon (Akira Ishida), the calculating strategist Ja'far (Keiji Fujiwara), and the enigmatic magician Yunan (Takehito Koyasu), among others. Each of these characters has their motivations and goals, and their interactions with Sinbad and each other create a fascinating dynamic that keeps the story engaging.

The animation quality is strong throughout the show, with bright, vivid colors and fluid motion that makes the action scenes particularly thrilling to watch. The character designs are distinct and memorable, with each main cast member sporting a unique and recognizable look that fits their personality and background. The dungeon-crawling aspect of the show is also well-executed, with each dungeon containing its set of traps, puzzles, and monsters that challenge Sinbad and his companions. The overall aesthetic of the show falls somewhere between Arabian Nights and classic fantasy, blending elements of Middle Eastern culture with magic and adventure tropes.

The voice actors all deliver strong performances, with Sugita in particular capturing Sinbad's devil-may-care attitude and fierce determination. Ishida's Drakon is also a standout, with a dry sense of humor that provides a welcome counterpoint to Sinbad's more bombastic personality. Koyasu's Yunan is enigmatic and otherworldly, while Fujiwara's Ja'far has a calculating, strategic mind that proves essential to the group's success.

Aside from its main storyline, the show also touches upon more significant themes like identity, morality, and leadership. Sinbad is a character who's driven by a desire to unite people under a single banner, but as the show progresses, he must confront the harsh realities of ruling and the ethical dilemmas that come with it. Yunan and other characters also provide insights into the nature of power and how it can be both a blessing and a curse depending on how it's used.

Overall, Magi: Adventure of Sinbad is a well-crafted and engaging anime that should appeal to those who enjoy stories of action, adventure, and fantasy. Its unique blend of Middle Eastern and magical elements, along with its cast of compelling characters, creates a world that's both immersive and exciting. Whether you're a fan of the original Magi series or new to the franchise, this spin-off is definitely worth checking out.

In conclusion, Magi: Adventure of Sinbad is a well-produced anime series that offers plenty of action, adventure, and intrigue. It's a spin-off from the original Magi anime series that follows the early years of the titular character Sinbad and his quest to conquer the world. With strong animation, memorable characters, and a unique blend of Middle Eastern and fantasy elements, this show is an excellent addition to the Magi franchise and a must-watch for fans of the genre.
