Here is the full translation of the valentine’s day omake that came out with SnB chapter 139! I apologize for the wait! ^^ It really is an adorable omake, but I can’t help but feel sad about what Mystras said at the end. Anyway, I hope you enjoy! ^^b
One thing i love about sinbad in snb more than magi is that
He feels more human.
In magi we’ve only ever known sinbad as one of the world’s most powerful men, conqueror of seven dungeons.
Built one of the world’s most beautiful and peaceful nations
and commands the world’s most powerful alliance.
A singularity and a man who holds so much power that doesn’t have to rely on anyone and can make anything possible. In a sense for the majority of magi sinbad has always been presented as a “godly” figure.
But in Sinbad no bouken we see the exact opposite. We see a naive, vulnerable little boy who has no power and has to continuously rely on others for help.
He struggles to make his dream a reality, there are consequences to everything he chooses to do.
Some of those bring about life long lessons but also there are others which could result in life long trauma.
We see an innocent boy whose lived confined to a small tiny village for the majority of his childhood expanding his sight of the world. Learning about the world around him, of the harsh cruel nature of reality and also the beauty of the wider world.
All of this makes sinbad feel so much more human and relatable than his magi self. I’ve always loved sinbad from when he was first introduced in magi. But i dont think i would love him as much as i do now if it wasn’t for snb. And i can say for certain i would not feel and be able to understand where sinbad is coming from in the final arc if it wasn’t for snb.
So bless this story for providing a whole new perspective on sinbad and revealing a deeper part of sinbad’s story and that is not of a powerful man but of a young boy who experienced a living hell his whole life. A broken man whose made so many mistakes in his lifetime and has lived a traumatized filled life but also a man who also experienced many happy, joyous moments and adventures that came to shape who he would grow up to become.
Muu, Sinbad, and Kouen reacting to their s/o kicking butt in a gladiatorial competition? Also who are your favorite characters? :3
Thank you for requesting, and thank you for asking! My favorite characters would have to be: Hakuren, Sphintus, Morgiana, Dunya, Aladdin, Kougyoku, and the Kou bros! (Don’t ask me to pick one I can’t I literally love them all)
Muu would be nervous upon seeing his s/o enter the ring. Gladiator fights weren’t easy fights- They were brutal, bloody, savage, and usually ended with someone being dead. Even if he was confident in his s/o’s fighting abilities, he would still be a nervous wreck, ready to jump in at a moment’s notice and save the day if he needed to. However, when he saw them practically destroy their opponent, most of the fear would be replaced with absolute pride as he cheered his s/o on, louder than any other person watching the fight. He would lose a bit of his composure, yelling advice that went unheard and cheering for them to beat their enemy into the ground. Once they had won and exited the arena, Muu would envelop them in a hug and promise to celebrate their victory.
The king of Sindria would be very involved in the fight, observing everything from his spot and watching to make sure his s/o didn’t do anything stupid or unnecessarily risky. He would be uncharacteristically quiet at the beginning, his concentrating face giving nothing away of the fear in his stomach. He knew that one wrong move, one mistake could result in death or dismemberment or both, and he did not want that for his s/o at all. Luckily, his fears were proven to be unneeded as his s/o proceeded to beat their opponent to a pulp. As they did this, Sinbad would begin cheering loudly, his voice the same loudness of everyone else, but somehow he knew his s/o could easily pick out which voice was his. Word could not describe how proud he felt of his s/o as they walked up to him, weapon in hand and a tired smile on their face. He would pick them up and spin them around, expressing his admiration.
Kouen would watch the entirety of the fight in silence, not cheering even as his s/o won. His face would give nothing away- It almost seemed like he was listening to someone read out a report on salads eaten that day. Little known to those around him, though, he was practically shaking with excitement and nerves. He wouldn’t really say that he was nervous, but he did feel a bit uneasy for his s/o to be down there by themselves, basically fighting for their life. As his s/o began to win, a small smile would crack across his lips and his eyes would take on a gleam as though to say “Yep. They’re badass, and they’re mine.” Once the fight was over and they had won, Kouen would congratulate them on their victory and promise that they would recieve a nice hot bath and good food as celebration. And, he would say, taking one of their hands and lifting it to his lips to place a kiss on their skin, if they wanted anything else they need only ask.
