About the Author

The Legend of Zelda is a high-fantasy adventure based on the wildly successful and long-running video game series by game designer Shigeru Miyamoto. In February 2000, Shogakukan began publication of manga artist Akira Himekawa’s adaptation of nine of the most well known Nintendo games in the series. Each story follows the adventures of Link, the hero of the video game series, as he battles the forces of evil to save the Sacred Realm.

Volume 2 culminates the story of the manga adaptation of the highly successful videogaming hit, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. If you just like manga, or enjoyed the story of said game, you'll definitely enjoy this book (which, in my opinion, delivers a better plot than the game itself, being a little more complex).

The plot and drawings, by Akira Himekawa, will really absorb you into a tale that does feel like Zelda. For fans of the series, though, it's a must-have.

Format: Paperback
The Legend of Zelda is a video game series that most people know, and many have played at least one game of. Ocarina of Time is often considered one of the best, if not the best, games of its time and even now is played by many - especially with its recent release on the Nintendo 3DS.

Ocarina of Time is covered in two volumes, with this being the second.

Much like the first volume of this two-part representation of the game, this follows the story well, although more details are changed than in the first volume. As I state in my review of the first volume, this does not detract from the story and I feel it gives it a form of artistic flare.

One of my favorite representations in this volume was Nobooru; she is a great character and I am glad she got the amount of screen time she did. That aside, I enjoy seeing the plot of this game visualized more in the form of a book, rather than a game.

The changed details and addition of smaller scenes that are often not seen in games, such as much more that has to do with Sheik and Impa, is great. I enjoyed reading this background information - these things that I was left to wonder about while playing the game.

My one complaint is that, in this volume, I feel things went rather fast. Telling the story of a game in a single volume is hard and I agree with the choice to make Ocarina of Time a two-part series, but still I felt that some sections seemed rushed.

This, however, is countered by the fact that there are extra scenes at the end that include even more artistic flare and new ideas.

I definitely recommend this to even the slightest fan of this series.

I've been a huge fan of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time when I first saw my brother playing it over ten years ago! Whenever I see someone with an N64, I always ask them if they have the game. I actually stumbled upon face details from this manga a very long time ago, thinking they were fan created or something. Turned out it was a doujin (fan-based creation) artist who actually got commissioned to get his take published.

Though the manga strays from the story, or mixes things around, from time to time; it is still truly loyal and even adds some things! The art is fantastic and true to the art style of the game. I just feel like the temples are a little rushed, or the pacing is kinda funny. I truly think this manga would have done better if the writer stretched it over to 3 volumes to give the temples and stuff a little more room.

Anyway, awesome manga! Awesome art! And Zelda!

Ocarina of Time has always been one of my favorite video games, along with Majora's Mask, they have to be, hands down, the best games I've ever played. Part of what made me like them so much was their deep story and rich characters. But, being N64 games, the technology wasn't quite there for the developers to be able to tell a complete story with 100% full character development and structure. The cutscenes had to be reduced in order to leave room for actual gameplay; this was great since it left it to the player's imagination to fill in the blanks and connect the dots to make the story complete. What this manga does (along with Majora's Mask's manga) is expand on the game's story and focus on characters instead of fighting/battles. It's a great purchase if you're a fan of both games and I fully recommend it. The drawing are beautiful, taking inspiration from the anime-like style of the games' actual artwork.

I am a huge fan of the legend of zelda and this manga is just great. The price was really cheap while the shipping was extremely quick. It only took 2 days. Although i can't read the main story of the book because volume one has not arrived yet the art and the additional stories were enough to keep me entertained. Overall great manga

I haven't read this book yet, but I just beat the game so I'll get on it soon. I didn't want spoilers. I've read a few others and even though they are categorized as children's graphic novels, I still enjoy them as an adult.

Format: Paperback
This is the second part of the 'Ocarina of Time' manga, and the second volume overall in the Legend of Zelda manga series. If you enjoyed the game 'Ocarina of Time', you will definitely enjoy this. The manga does not follow the game to the letter, but it is a very good adaptation, and for someone who loved the game, I found this to be a very good manga.

A definite must for any Legend of Zelda fan, though I would have liked to see a manga treatment of the old Nintendo games (particularly the first ever LoZ game) since they started off this manga series with a later game. Ocarina of Time was the last LoZ game I ever played, so I have no plans to buy the rest of the manga series, but if you played on, then I am sure you will enjoy the rest if they were adapted as well as the Ocarina of Time.
