You can now Read the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Manga

on January 6, 2012 1:45 PM

The first 32 pages of the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword manga by Akira Himekawa have been published in the artbook Hyrule Historia last month, but for those unable to read Japanese enjoying it was a difficult task, until now.

A group of fans provided a scanlation (a fan translation of the scans) of the first ten pages of the manga and plans to gradually translate the whole thing.

If you love The Legend of Zelda you should definitely head here to read this lovely little manga. You may want to give it a try even if you don’t love the series that much, especially if part of that sentiment is based on Link’s inconsistent character design. You might get a pleasant surprise as you’re presented with a version of Link that I  personally find a lot more fetching and believable.

Maybe Nintendo should consider Honda A. and Nagano S.  (the two mangaka that hide behind the pseudonym Akira Himekawa) as character designers for the next Zelda game.
