A Link to the Past Manga Review
The Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past
By Akira Himekawa
It is no secret that videogames are often adapted into different mediums. Unfortunately, the results of these adaptations are often mediocre at best, and at worst universally hated by everyone. Surprisingly, this is not the case for A Link to The Past. As an avid Legend of Zelda fan,I had no plans to read this manga because I thought it would be terrible, but I was in for a delightful treat.
The manga follows the game’s plot very closely; however, it does take some liberties to help the plot flow better in this medium. All of the locations and characters are beautifully illustrated. I never had a moment while reading this story be ruined by terrible art. The dialogue flows naturally which is especially good as this is an English translation from Japanese. Overall, this is an excellent read that will captivate Zelda fans and high-fantasy lovers.
Overall Rating: A-
Several, upsetting, Intense, and frightening scenes. 10+
