Zelda should become an anime?
Posted 7/24/09 , edited 7/24/09
If you know about zelda, then you know the games for the most part have amazingly epic storlines which would very well intigrate into a anime. Sadly the only attempt in the past was a total peice of crap. But what if they made zelda from a real anime producer like gonzo, bandai, funimation, ect. I mean, most of the games have a sort of "Anime" style to them as far tas the characters go. The way I am thinking it would play out is like this.

They would set up the plot just like the game starting with link in his korok forest. Each series would be 12-26 episodes and every series would basically be one of the games. They would build character, show the delema just like in the game, then every confrontation like say for example "Ocorina of time".

The getting to hyrule castle, going through the town. Talking to people to find out things and then go sneak into the castle to talk to zelda. This alone could span a full episode with awsome art direction, good naratives like you would expect from a awsome anime nowadays.

Obviously it wouldn't be as straight forward as the NPC encounters in games. Like when he has to sneak past the guards and climb the wall to get past gate, and you see that girl singing, all this is takin into account for very epic action/adventure anime progression..
.
So if you have any idea what zelda is all about, what do you all think? I mean honestly, with all the echii, super action non story anime's, ect out there, and doing "Just fine in the market", I don't think it would be "Wrong" to attempt a zelda anime at all. With the right direction I believe it could be really great.

If you see some of the anime integrations of link and zelda, some of them scream for an anime to be made. Sadly alot of the zelda fanart is rather amateurish, but some is very good. These images are not made by me and credit goes to the artists.

A bunch of images that origionally made me think "Hmm maybe it could" If the music sucks I wouldn't know I don't have sound.

But I do think it would be a great idea. I for one, am a huge fan of Zelda; especially Ocarina of Time. If they somehow made Ocarina of Time into an anime, I would probably go berserk. It's bringing back nostalgic feelings! O;

I think it should stay It is a really great topic and that old thread is as old as sin.


Ask the mods. They'll probably decide something, especially since that thread is old.

This is true. The last time we actually seen a Zelda show was on Super Mario Bros. Super Show on Fridays and regardless of it being how it was, you have to take in account that most of it was done right as far as music and sound goes. If there was a chance that Zelda would be remade by a reputable anime company like Funimation or Bandai, I honestly think it would work. Where or which series they want to start on, we can only hope for the best.

I would like it,but only if they got his original voice actor to do his voice. In the Manga Link actualy SPEAKS.. and if his voice and the shmexiest damn thing ever, like his original voice actor (also did the work of Viral in tengen toppa gurren lagan), I wouldnt want to see it.. I would be too mortified of the ruining of his beautiful character with a lame voice.

ALSO! It would be great to see the continuation of the TWILIGHT saga gone anime... I cant wait till that is made into a manga version.. wonder what the REAL ending will be.. muahahaha >u<
