    Link must draw the Four sword when Zelda and her hand maidens are kidnapped by the forces of the evil wind mage vaati! But then he splits into four versions of himself! Each one reflecting one of his character traits! The four of them must learn how to band together to defeat vaati before its too late! So many exclamation marks!!!!!

So many exclamation marks!!!!! While I would haves loved to see an adaptation of links awakening connecting to the Oracle manga (they ended that with him going off on more adventures so they could have used that link for the koholint adventure (and no I won't shut up about how bad I want a links awakening manga)) this is still a good installment to follow the Oracle manga with. It's loads of fun to see the different versions of link interact with one another, as well as to see shadow link cause chaos. There's good character drama here, too, with this ending at the heroes low point in a very literal way. It can get confusing keeping track of the links since this isn't colored but they each are drawn slightly different across the eyes so it's usually pretty easy to follow anyways. All in all a fun first part!

    I myself have been a huge Zelda fan sense I was 5. And this book gives the sense of comedy, and adventure. I gotta say, I love the 'breaking the 4th wall' moments in the book. This manga series really builds character and lore on Link then It would in the video games (due to not talking and all). This is one of many books in the Zelda manga series, and I can't wait to read the others. I myself have been a huge Zelda fan sense I was 5. And this book gives the sense of comedy, and adventure.

    The concept of a black and white series with four identical characters only identifiable by their color is perhaps a stretch. Their personalities do begin to pull them apart but it is often quite difficult to keep track of which Link is which, especially so since Green and Blue are so much alike and Red and Violet are both quite like one another. The story descends quite readily into a bickering pile of Links who refuse to work with one another.

The story descends quite readily into a bickering pile of Links who refuse to work with one another. It actually fits the game quite well since it was intended to be a cooperative multiplayer experience and was designed with a competitive edge to it. The art work is always fantastic, but in this book the panels are often cluttered with one or two too many Links to allow much else. Eventually they are mostly separated and this is where the actual story-telling begins to take a bit more presence and redeems the goofy antics and perceivable flaws of the rest of the material. Good if you are into silly banter. Poor on narrative and subject depth.

    While I played some of the early Zelda games on my NES and Super Nintendo, I was never a huge fan of the franchise. I was more partial to the cutesiness and happy worlds of Mario and Pokémon, especially since the former had some excellent multiplayer games, such as Mario Kart 64. Still, I decided to give this manga a chance...and I was disappointed. A lack of color makes the whole four Links thing confusing, and the story wasn't all that fun.

    An amazing story. Best read with the second part as a singular story. Most of the Zelda Mangas do try to accurately try to tell the story of the games, but for the game of Four Swords Adventure, there isn't really a story to follow, meaning the writer could focus more on the story than appealing to fans. An amazing story about teamwork, the 4 links are distinct enough that I still find myself referring to this when people ask me about the personalities of the characters.

    Cute story! My only complaint is that I had a hard time telling the four Links apart at certain moments. Since it is a black and white book, I couldn’t rely on color to differentiate between the four of them; instead, I had to rely on facial expressions and the couple times they call eachother by name. Each variation of Link has their own specific personality and actions, and I think the way they are depicted was adorable!

    5 Links and Tingle? This was a fairly silly Manga that was entertaining. The fact that the Links were supposed to be distinguished by color in a black and white Manga was a little annoying, but oh well.

    This book was really funny. Link doesn't like working with the other knights (this is not the same Link from the Oracle of Ages) and makes that clear. Link's father, the captain of the guard, goes to princess Zelda for help, who apparently is really the only one Link will even sort-of listen too.

They talk a little, Link gives Zelda a flower, then the shrine maidens appear and Link tags along with them to the seal. But something goes wrong and the shrine maidens disappear! Link somehow gets transported to the Four Sword shrine, and draws the sword. Now you have four Links who can't work together. At first it was a little hard for me to tell them apart, but their eyes are drawn differently, along with some differences in the way their shirts look. Green Link is focused and determined, Red Link is kind and caring, Blue Link is short-tempered and angry most of the time, and Purple Link (or Vio, as the others call him) is calm and calculated. I was wondering why each of them was a different color and acted differently, but I think my brother pointed out that they're all different parts of Link's personality. It was really funny watching the four Links try to work together, and I really enjoyed this one. I would certainly read this.

    I enjoyed this "book", because it still had the same story (for the first half) as the original game. It kept in all the action scenes, and it managed to add in a little more space for the non-action things, such as talking. The only thing is, that since it's in black and white, it's really hard to differentiate the 4 different Links.

This story starts off when a hero named Link saving the village from thieves. Once the knights finally arrive Link explains that he needs no help. Eventually he meets up with Zelda and she tells him that Vaati might come back. A demon rises and takes Zelda and the seven maidens away. Link is then teleported to the four sword shrine. He pulls the sword and then splits into four. Demons come from the shrine and a demon challenges them to a fight. All four Links fight with all their might but then realize that they have not ever worked as a team. Then all four Links realize that they are fighting for Zelda and to save Hyrule. They continue their journey across Hyrule to save all of the seven maidens. Later on they get split apart and all of them are on their own. Blue gets frozen in a cave and, Red awakes in a riot and gets his sword stolen. Vio finds Shadow Link and gets turned to the evil side. Green finds a temple and defeats a demon. The demon turns out to be a knight and he tells Green a way to get to Zelda. Red finds Blue in the ice cave and, they find Vio in the temple of darkness. Vio set the trap and Red and Blue are trapped around by demons. Red eventually looses all hope and gives up. Blue does not give up and fights Big Poe. Red eventually builds up hope and helps our Blue. As Blue kills the Big Poe the four sword beams a brilliant light. Every Link sees the light and realize that they are all safe.

Not knowing what else to do, he turns to the fabled Four Sword, splitting himself into four Links as he draws the blade. However, not even four of himself seems to be enough to stop the evil Vaati he has freed with the unleashing of the sword. How can he save Princess Zelda, and Hyrule, when he can’t even get along with himself, much less defeat all of the evils plaguing the land? I still haven’t quite gotten the hold of reading manga, but I still enjoyed this. For the most part, I can read manga just fine, but there are some pages I find confusing… This happens in all of the books I read of this nature, though, so I don’t think it was a fault of just this Zelda book. Now that I have that out of the way… I played the Four Swords game years ago, and then I have little sisters who used to be obsessed with it, back when they were too young to play the harder Zelda games, and so I’m pretty familiar with the material this book is based off of. I can say that the game was a little boring to play unless you had friends tagging along. It was meant to be fairly simple, for that exact reason. So, I can’t say I was expecting too much from this book, but it was actually rather good. The authors weren’t afraid to take liberties at all, while always staying within the Zelda universe. In fact, I almost felt like there was too much going on, in that there seems to be two separate evils. There is some hints that this will be resolved in the second book and that things will make more sense then, but there were a few moments it was hard to tell if they were fighting Vaati or somebody else. Though, what I did like about all of the talk about multiple evils was that they weren’t ignoring Ganon/other evils for the sake of focusing on Vaati. It made the world feel that much more real, and I’m sure it helps to connect all of the different Zelda mangas together a little more (I haven’t read any of the others, so that’s only a guess on my part). Aside from the villains, I loved what they did with Link. We have such a heroic view of him that it’s nice to be reminded he doesn’t always start out that way. He has some real flaws in this book, and I love seeing that these flaws hurt him in his quest. He has the makings of greatness, but he isn’t there yet. I also thought it was clever how each copy of himself received a portion of his personality, both letting that trait/flaw shine, and letting each copy be unique while still being a part of who Link is. As for the art, I really liked it. It fits this particular story, and this particular Link, well, giving a sort of childlike appearance to the main cast while allowing for some creepier moments with the villains/enemies. My one complaint with the art was that it was hard to tell the Links apart. Purple was the easiest to tell apart, and I could pick Blue out half of the time, but I could never tell which one was Green and which was Red. I don’t understand why more of an effort wasn’t made to give them all a distinct shading style. So, overall, I loved the art and the story was pretty good. This is my first taste at the Zelda manga, and now I’m excited to not only read the sequel to this one, but to get my hands on the rest of the books.

    Imagine that there are four of you. It’s a difficult thing to do, isn’t it? Well, in The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords by Akira Himekawa, Link, the main character couldn’t imagine having four of him either. However, he is “split into four versions of himself,” as the back cover reads. This book is an exciting one filled with adventure, surprise, and laughs. In fact, it’s actually based on one of the greatest video game franchises of all time, The Legend of Zelda. The story is about a young knight- Imagine that there are four of you. It’s a difficult thing to do, isn’t it? Well, in The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords by Akira Himekawa, Link, the main character couldn’t imagine having four of him either. However, he is “split into four versions of himself,” as the back cover reads. This book is an exciting one filled with adventure, surprise, and laughs. In fact, it’s actually based on one of the greatest video game franchises of all time, The Legend of Zelda. The story is about a young knight-in-training, Link. He prefers to do things solo, and he says that he can handle anything on his own. However, evil rises in the land, and it threatens the princess, Zelda. Link, who has been Zelda’s friend since childhood, knows he has to stop the dark forces from doing any harm, but the only way to do that is to draw the mystical Four Sword. So, he does just that. However, because the sword has legendary magical powers, it makes it so that there are four of him. Each version of Link has different personality traits, and they can get very extreme. They all still share at least one thing in common, though; they can’t work well on a team. Of course, this causes a lot of problems. Their personalities clash with each other, and they can’t seem to get anything right at first. The quirky and entertaining way that they work together makes this book a very entertaining read. I enjoyed reading The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords very much. If you’ve played the game that the book was based off of, as I have, you’ll probably find this book very relatable to the game because Akira Himekawa included many elements from the games into her book. On the other hand, if you played the game and you think that it will be boring because you know the story already, have no fear because the author also added in new elements for a fresh reading experience. Even if you have never played Four Swords, though, if you like manga and adventure, this will be a great choice for you.
