    Dear God no. Young Link in that picture makes me want to kill myself. I can't see anyone buying this at such a ridiculous price, even huge Zelda fans like myself.

    It's TEN books, that's 7 dollars a book, and you don't think its worth it?

    its actually 7.99 for each book so buying the pack is quite the steal. More so if you buy it on amazon

    Actually they're quite well done, TDWP. I read part of MM in the bookstore.

    So they aren't just some cheesy, chibi fairytale manga? Might be worth reading then I guess.

    Fucking... 81 bucks..

    God, I might not be buying this for a while, maybe after I get around to finishing the OoT Mangas that I bought. I only have 3, the OoT ones and 4 Swords, read a bit of the OoT ones, they were pretty good, but I still haven't finished them.

    TD, it's worth the read, but even at 7 dollars per book, it's still 70 bucks American.

    What I don't get is, even if CAD is higher than USD, our prices are always higher than the USD price. :cry: The Amazon price seems reasonable though. 50 Bucks CAD..

    I've read all of these. I can say this, they are worth it. The games always felt a little flat in story. I kind of wish the games would have elaborated the story a bit more like these manga's did.

    Plus the manga's do a good job explaining what happened to the mouse rather than letting the player assume the worst. It's heart breaking in the game how easily Link takes loosing friends forever. The manga shows that it wasn't easy and Link keeps moving on in spite of the losses.

    The sad part is the games could have easily included the story but didn't. The games are still great, just a little flat. Plus the manga's give personal motivation rather than a plot excuse.

    P.S. Also, for the longest time I didn't understand the opening to MM, I though he was looking for [Saria].

    If you don't connect the fairy flutter sound effect after the explanation, that could be a fairly reasonable misunderstanding.

    Nope that makes no sense. The last scene of OoT is young Zelda and young Link together. Plus, as I recall, he actually remembered the entire adventure.

    Why would they play the Navi sound if he was looking for someone else?

    I'd so buy this if I had the money.
    Nintendo really are going all out for this anniversary

    The manga has nothing to do with Nintendo.
    The boxset is Viz Media's decision.
