    Hyrule Historia, as you all must know by now, is being localized for US, UK, and some parts of Europe. Pre-orders have opened on Amazon, for the kick-ass price of $20.99, and in one single day, Hyrule Historia managed to overtake the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy (which held first, second, and third) in the "Best Sellers in Books" chart.

    In case anyone didn't know by now, Fifty Shades of Grey started out as a Twilight fanfiction. The author changed the characters, and the setting and marketed it as it's own story. Yes. That's right. A Twilight fanfic held the top spot for this long. Oh, and the book is porn. Readable porn. Not even the good kind.

    Awesome! Didn't even know Amazon opened up pre-orders on this, thanks for the news. Just pre-ordered it myself.

    Fuck you Fifty Shades.

    Fifty Shades of Get The Fuck Out

    Anyway

    Not surprising considering LoZ has a pretty mammoth fanbase by now.
    Thanks to this thread I added further fuel to the machine with my own pre-order. Well worth the money.

    Base on that pic, Link had the same notion.

    I never heard of Fifty Shades,but from what I got from this thread, I'm better off giving it
    no attention.

    Fifty Shades is pure porn, not even the classy ones. Which make up the majority of fanfics today. Really, current fanfics run the gamut of regular shipping to LGBT sex to BDSM sex to midget sex and oh-god-why sex.

    Fifty Shades of Grey is a better book. Much better lore, history, and information in that than the crappy Hyrule Historia bullshit.

    If you dislike a book that much, just don't read it.

    ITT: I've always been sarcastic

    Also, ITT: Hells Malice being a ponce.

    Also I can't wait for the eventual crossover between the two, "Fifty Shades of Time".

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    I just pre-ordered 50 Shades of Grey Hyrule Historia. I already read the Japanese version, but it will be interesting to see what extra content they add to the localization.

    We can only hope, for the sake of humanity, it has nothing to do with Epona.
