The official website for Shogakukan’s Jisedai World Hobby Fair ’12 Summer event shows a giveaway pamphlet for Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine, which reveals the television anime adaptation of Shinobu Ohtaka’s Magi fantasy adventure manga. The manga re-imagines tales from the classic story One Thousand and One Nights (also known as Arabian Nights).

Ohtaka, the creator of Sumomomo Momomo, has been serializing Magi in Weekly Shonen Sunday since 2009, and Shogakukan will publish the 13th compiled book volume next month.

Earlier this year, Masaki Nawada, the editor-in-chief of Weekly Shonen Sunday, revealed that the manga has a “huge project” in development. The domain “project-Magi.com” has been registered and is currently pointing to the name server “ns.sme.co.jp,” a domain owned by Sony Music Entertainment.

  1. I’ve heard rumors of a season two, are these true? I just need to watch the final episode. :'( I also read somewhere (can’t remember where) that plans to make 3 movies have been confirmed. Now I’m pumped for the movies and I’ll take what I can get BUT I would love to see a season two. Any info or rumors you’ve heard would be nice.
