I just got my SnB fan book today, so I wanted to post my thoughts on it! :D
First of all I wanted to apologize for a little mistake I made during my chapter translation last week. I’m not sure why, but I said that those cool SnB cover rough sketches released last week, would be included in the fan book, but that’s actually not true. Maybe I misread it due to my wishful thinking haha~ sorry about that! ^^;
But anyway, what IS included is that 70 PAGE prototype of Sinbad no Bouken! It’s very different in some areas, but the exact same in others. And, you can also see the difference in the art style somewhat too! :D
Additionally, this fan book provides details regarding Sinbad and his team’s character development, while displaying key turning points for each member~! <3
There is also a section where Ohtaka Sensei and Ohtera Sensei discuss the Magi series and a special interview with Sinbad’s voice actor Ono Daisuke~! <3
Also, I just loved the covers and the beautiful pictures on the inside. Not to mention Ohtaka Sensei’s amazing sketch of Sinbad from SnB! @___@ Its so beautiful!!! ;^; And of course Ohtera Sensei’s cute chibis always make me smile. :)
And finally, if you take the cover sheet off, a surprise is waiting for you underneath it! They really made sure to packed this thing full of goodies! :3
Magi: Sinbad no Bouken Volume 11 second insert! This is a message to the fans, to thank them for purchasing volume 11 at their local Animate store. This image also appears on the back cover of SnB volume 11. I’ll never get over the beauty of the contrasting colors that have been prominent in Ohtera sensei’s recent illustrations. <3 Don’t forget to support the official release!
