This book was kind of weird. The nearly chibi-like style suggests a very light story with lots of humor but then they threw in some misguided master – student relations that are pretty easily resolved in the end. They throw in the fae like Minish which seemingly world bending powers whom only children can see and some monsters that were just sealed away. Not to mention the whole inheritance of Force thing.
A lot doesn't really make sense(view spoiler)...more

I just love this book. I love how LInk turns mini and meets the Legendary Picori!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Minish Cap is a great book and the stories and adventures are jsut amazing!!! Just because Link turns small doesn't mean the adventure begins there!! The adventure starts as soon as you open the first page!!!!! Going to the magical world of the Picori is amazing!!

E' piuttosto raro che io valuti una lettura con una o due stelle, ma è cosa ancor più rara che io dia un giudizio tale quando si tratta di Zelda. Le opere di Miyamoto e soci (questo è un titolo sviluppato dalla Capcom) sono magiche, epiche, appassionanti; se le Akira Himekawa sono comunque riuscite ad essere all'altezza con la conversione manga di "Ocarina of Time", "Majora's Mask" e "Four Swords +", non si può dire che qui abbiano fatto lo stesso.

Since I'm in the middle of the game, I picked up the manga for fun while on a lunch break. I wish I hadn't. To start, I'm not a big fan of the manga medium. I don't like having to flip right to left. I don't like reading right to left. It takes me too much out of the story. I also spoiled the game for myself, provided the game still follows the story. That was dumb. Most particularly though, I was disappointed in the changes they made. The first dungeon alone, I was waiting for a very particular...more
It is of course a quite classical plot for what concerns the Legend of Zelda's comics, however, I found this story more of my taste. Maybe because finally it was not the version number 200 of the same plot, maybe because there was some element of unpredictability, maybe because there and then it was also quite funny.
But Link is the hero, something evil appears and make Zelda becomes a stone statue, what shall he do if not just trying to save her, somehow?
He will have to go around the realm in o...more

I love this game on the gameboy advance but it was the manga that I read first that really made me want to play it. I love the companion of Ezlo and think it was very clever of the creators of the game to bring Link's hat to life and allow the gamers find out how he got the hat in the first place. The manga is exceptionally cute and inspired me to draw many pictures from it of the Picori and their rosy cheeks :)

Seemed a bit rushed but it's a manga so I expected it to be a bit rushed
I love this book so far please read!

I am reading: Legend of Zelda: Minish cap. I really like it when Link finds Ezlo, it shows some good and bad chemistry between them. Though it was a fantasy the author really brought Link to life by showing his silly but heroic aditude. Link's Origen is from a video game that author Akira Himekawa brought to life. This isn't Ms.Himekawa has made, she has done nine other Legend of Zelda manga. Also I think that link can be silly or heroic at even the scariest moments. And that summaries my report...more

The Legend of Zelda manga series is a collection of 10 books that are written in collaboration by two women, A. Honda & S. Nagano. When they started they played all the games so they could get an idea of the story and then they sat an elaborated to create the books.

There's a great attention to detail from Link to his companions to the enemies he fights. It's so much more interesting to read the conversations and see the familiar places from the games from a different perspective.
It felt rushed, but also like nothing worth noting happened. The art felt strange, even for "Toon Link," and only the Piccori appealed to me aesthetically.

I never played Minish Cap, so I'm not sure how this compares with the game version.
Three in a half stars, actually.
I liked it alot better than some of the other Zelda books, but its not the best.
I think the middle was too long, and it should have been shortened so that the ten paged epic ending battler could have been more like 40 pages. And after the battle, he resolution was kinda corny, with some of the people feeling bad for the bad guy...
Love the art and the overall plot, though! Very creative!

Genial como sus cinco predecesores. Me ha encantado la historia, tan fiel al videojuego, y también los golpes de humor, sobre todo por parte de Ezero. Sin embargo, creo que a este cómic le falta algo... ¿Más madurez, quizá? ¿Más profundidad? Puede ser, porque claro, Link y Zelda aún son niños, mientras que en los demás cómics son algo mayores...
En general, muy chulo y en la línea de los anteriores.
This is my absolute favourite Zelda game of all time, so I noticed (and was bugged) by some of the changes in the novelization more. Like kinstones being explained by someone other than the Hurdy Gurdy man. But they kept the art style and it was so cute and I did love it regardless. Truthfully, I would give it a 4.5 if half-marks were allowed here.
The Minish Cap is probably my favourite Legend of Zelda game, mostly because of Ezlo. therefore, i really enjoyed reading this manga, although i was a bit annoyed by the changes in the novelization. the art is amazing though.

I liked this book in that series not only because the art work was incredibly adorable but also because the story was really goods too, at times I felt bad for the villain which makes you know that their character was thought out well, I would recommend this book to anyone that likes the series or just stories like that.
I have never read a Zelda book before so this was my first one and I LOOOOOOOOOVED it!!! :D and to think, less than a month ago I thought the Zelda stuff was geeky......

This was so close to the video game and I love both! :) Brought back memories! This manga was so adorable and funny! :D
This was my first Legend of Zelda manga, and I really enjoy it. The art is fantastic and the plot is interesting.
I liked the art in this one alot. The author di a pretty good job of converting the game's story into manga.
Another amazing book from a great series. The art is amazing and its awesome.
