The Adventures of Sinbad (Arabian Naito Shindobatto no Boken) is Toei Doga's fifth animated feature, from 1962. Ben Ettinger, Toei expert extrordinaire, offers his thoughts on this picture:
"The next film (The Adventures of Sinbad), on the other hand, I disliked right on the first viewing. It's probably my least favorite of the classic Toei Doga films. It's just plain boring. They tried to develop the realism of Anju further in this one, but it's a half-assed realism and consequently totally misses the mark, neither fish nor fowl. Despite that, certain gains were made in terms of animation technique with this film that would go on to feed the later films, and that is probably its main virtue. Specifically, the animation of the water in the climax, by (who else?) Otsuka Yasuo, acheived a degree of detail that was a new watermark for the studio, which had until then not been particularly known for its effects animation."
