Action packed sequel, all the action that was missing from the first book is in this one. Love the story and the art work. With the expansion of the Twilight realm Link has a new form in a new world with new beings. Now Link must to use his new form and abilities if he has a chance of survival.

The thing I loved of the comic bring the game to life is true in the volume as well. As link upgrades his powers and abilities. Links is also "forced" into a reluctant role of champion/hero. I really hope

Wow, this volume was definitely action-packed! Link's story picks up right where The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess left off. Just as it was with Volume 1, Volume 2 is very dark as well. It's amazing how a story can be told using limited words but fantastic pictures. Some of the full-page pictures throughout the book are stunning. However, I didn't realize that the story wasn't over at the end of Volume 2. Now I have to wait for the third volume to come out! Hopefully I can find some time to ...more

3.5 ⭐️ Link and Midna were BOTH out of character in my opinion. I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first book... I may or may not read the next one. I think the ending was done well, though.

4th quarter 1st choice book:
When I first started reading The Legend of Zelda I for got that the series was a manga. I read it like a regular comic book and so I ended up reading it backwards. After I finished reading it the wrong way I thought that's weird I feel like the end is the beginning. So I asked my cousin why it was weird and she told me I was reading it the wrong way. Anyway my favorite part was probably when Link was a wolf and was in the twilight realm and defeated all of the shadow

My favourite video game has always been Zelda. While Ocarina of Time is the best video game, I’ve always loved the story of Twilight Princess, so I was really excited to find this manga. Volume 1 was a bit slow but the story definitely picked up in this one. I must find the other two volumes! I love how Zelda actually surrendered to Zant in order to save her people; the act of surrendering hardly ever happens in stories, but I always think that’s the most realistic outcome. I do wish the manga w ...more

Twilight Princess was very entertaining and an interesting read we have more information and Link embarking on a journey. Which is what I like seeing and also his transformation was just too amazing. The only negative thing I can say is that I thought volume 2 was the finale nope it was not. Overall, this is a very enjoyable read and the art work as always is breathtaking.

the book called the legend of Zelda: twilight princess, Vol.2 is a Fantasy book by Akira Himekawa, part two of the series. Vol.2 is about our main character Link who turns into a wolf but doesn't know why, but when he woke up a girl named Midna finds him and brings him to her place thinking that he is just a random wolf to be her companion/transportation until he said something which when she parshaly freaked out she also laughed because he was very

Twilight Princess is one of my favourite Legend of Zelda games, so to be able to sit down and read more about the backstory (even if it isn't cannon) is just the greatest thing ever.
The characters are great and the whole story is full of such adventure and excitement that I can't wait to read the next volume and get more of everything.

I now have the strongest urge to play Twilight Princess just so I can play as wolf link again. I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!

That story shows Link and Midna take on the first dungeon and receiving the Gale Boomerang. That dungeon was not the easiest one to complete on my first try.

this isn't actually a review but I got thoughts. I've read every one of the Zelda manga adaptations but this is actually somehow the first one that I played the game before I read it (I guess since the others are so old :| ) and so it's been super neat to see how the condensing and added context works!! especially since i have this game practically memorized since i'm a LOSER

I was most excited for this one because (it's my favourite game but also because) of how much of this game is built on the

Disclaimer: I've done it again, and blitzed 3 volumes of manga in one day, so I'm reviewing all three in one review here.

Full disclosure, I wasn't really looking forward to reading this. It's been a long time since I a) played Twilight Princess and b) read Zelda manga, so I wasn't expecting much, but this stuff? This stuff is good.

The other volumes of Zelda manga are all heavily truncated, having to squeeze most of the games into one tankobon (bar Ocarina of Time, my second favourite adaptation

Without any context I realize that this series is going to be one big generic good vs evil story, but it's still fun. I also have the benefit of having played Twilight Princess. While we all need to play the game (or replay it) this is still a good manga that follows the story in a rough outline of how it's told. There'd be no point if they copied and paste the story of the game without any deviations.

Again, fun times to be had here, a decent load of action and the style is staying pretty stro
The art is very nicely done, the story paces fairly well [in that there aren't any jarring jumps between scenes without proper transitions], it's quite interesting. I'm just not too sure about the length of the story. Link learned about the shadow demons being able to possess animals, he learned how to see shadow creatures, and he's managed to get his hands on the boomerang.

We're getting a lot of information concerning the monsters coming out of the Twilight realm and what Link has to do to fix

I love getting to see this world, this story in a way that allows me into Link's head. While a lot could be inferred from playing Twilight Princess and watching the cutscenes, being able to see his dialogue and thoughts really adds another layer of depth. The same can be said of Midna's character; her motivations seemed pretty clear throughout the game, along with her change of heart--but it's so good to see it here, to get a sharper glimpse of the dynamic between her and Link.

And of course, th

I thought the book was good. Good story so far. I really like Link's character and i see it's following the game story (or at least what i've played so far.) The art style is pretty great as well, Akira Himekawa does a good job on this. Now i am waiting to find the 3rd book in my school's library, i think my library made the right choice. Side note-- I am also trying to learn Japanese so it is good practice to start reading Manga since they are the Japanese Graphic novels. 100% would recommend t ...more

Well, I must say I liked the first volume more, maybe because it added something new to the story: background, context, a little bit of magic combat and Link's mystical search (I know that was just one page or so but I loved that). This volume, however, follows the story as it was, even taking parts from it (it sums up the first maze which is completely normal but that still makes me not to love it as I did with the previous one).

But 4/5 stars is really good anyway.... Vol 1 was just pure awesom

This series continues to be engaging and thrilling! Wolf link is beautifully drawn which should be expected with the art of this manga. Midna is a joy to see whenever she is on the page, she's mischievous and is definitely hiding something deep from Link and I am excited to see more of her in later volumes. Story continues to expand and flows nicely with how the game was paced. The couple of bonus content images, while brief were charming. Would have liked to see more though. Such as rough sketc ...more

Okay. I’ve heard that most manga adaptations are like this where the author and/or artist can dive deeper into characters because the source material didn’t do much to explore further character development.

I really like that about this—especially since this is one of my favorite Zelda games in the franchise. I love how Link actually has a voice and how the author is giving the pigdude antagonist a personality.

An actual conscience and personality! That makes him a real character!

Twilight princess is my favourite Zelda game. And I just love the manga!
The other Zelda manga's were short and rushed, juicy bits were left out. But not with this one!
There are 4 so far and volume 5 is coming in july. Looking at the game at that point it's about half way through. That means there is a lot left to cover :D
They really thake their time with this one. Characters are fleshed out and developing. The story is well told. It's the best Zelda manga out there. Go read it!

This is a great sequel! I like that it’s action-packed. It did stray off a bit more from the original story, but hey, if it were the exact same as the game then it wouldn’t be anything new to me.

I do like that Link has his own voice in the manga, as he never really did in the game. However, in some parts of the manga he’s having a bit of imposter syndrome, especially at the end...I didn’t really like how it was left off on that note. But, I’m still invested. On to volume three!

My husband is a really big zelda fan and i knew that i had to get this manga and i was happy i did. When i read it i instantly fell in love with wolf link with how adorable he looks. the story is funny yet interesting even if you never played the game before which is a good thing for me because my husband is the zelda player not me but all in all a very wonderful manga.

Link has to figure out why he has been transformed and how to save the people and animals he cares about. He will have to face monsters and rise from the terrors of the Twilight Realm. As he struggles through his purpose and the darkness claiming the world, he comes to ask the question not many heroes ask.

I forget if it's in this volume or the previous one that the village kids and Ilia are abducted by the Goblin King. This manga is even darker than the game in some ways (in a Shadow Dies Twice kind of way). The addition of Link's internal conflict over being a beast/man mix is appreciated and adds depth to his development. I have also gained a new appreciation for Roo, the shop-keeper's cat. ...more

I'm reading these aloud with my 14-yr-old who has been obsessed with Link for years! He binged these all 1-6 in two days, and then he insisted I read them, too. The art is amazing! Especially the full-page spreads. But even the smallest expressions are perfect, too! I love that it gets a little deeper into the characters -- especially Link -- than the video game did. ...more
