Happy Friday Gamers, Geeks and Friends! I’ve finally gotten around to watching Magi: Adventures of Sinbad and will be able to share my thoughts on the series! Each week I will recommend a series that I binge watch on Netflix for you to analyze if you would like to watch or not.
The Plot: This Anime adaptation of the Adventures of Sinbad follows the our boy Sinbad who has the excellent navigational skills of an experienced sailor. The twist is that Sinbad is able to navigate and find the correct path for more than just the sea, he is able to find the correct path in any challenge that is thrown upon him. The story starts when Sinbad is 3, focusing on his father who is a war hero for the country. Right now, Japan is at war and all able bodied males are drafted into said war in the efforts of conquering a dungeon. The person who can successfully conquer the dungeon will obtain a great power. From a young age, Sinbad has had the instincts to find the right path and his father recognized that quality in his son instantly when the were rowing in the middle of a storm. Sinbad guided them to safety.
Fast forward years later, Sinbad is now a young man who helps out his villagers and travelers in need. The country is still at war and the generals of the army approach Sinbad’s town forcing him to obey the orders of the draft or else! After encouraging words from a strange traveler, Sinbad devises a plan to conquer that dungeon and take the power for himself, in order to bestow peace throughout the land. Sinbad journeys to different lands tackling different dungeons and befriending all types of characters. The question is, will Sinbad bring peace and overthrow the empire that set his home to war?
The Characters: Overall the character development in the series is really good and the story is fun to follow. You can see the leadership qualities in Sinbad’s every action and when certain situations occur, you can agree with the choices made (being vague as not to spoil the series lol).
- Anime Action and an interesting take on the Sinbad Story
- If you enjoy Magi Anime’s this one is right for you
- If you a like a story that develops quickly
I’ve attempted to find an English dubbed trailer but I couldn’t so I apologize for not having one. There is a trailer on Netflix that you can watch for the show.
