Ah, a new playmate? Hmhmhm, I am Majora, Hylian Goddess of Chaos, or rather, that's what everyone calls me. If you have a query, feel free to ask, though make it quick. If you're not playing, you're not staying.

((Independent Ask and sometimes RP blog for my personification of Majora's Mask from The Legend of Zelda.

There are some pretty frequently asked questions, so go ahead and check out the headcanon tag first))

((It’s funny because after seeing how Cia plays in Hyrule Warriors that’s actually really close to how I saw Jora playing

Minus the Dark Link summons))

((Right, well, it’s midnight and some change and I’m stuck at work so I’m going to throw my two cents in on this.

Honestly, I’m not impressed. It’s nice that fans have taken up such a huge project, and honestly, power to them, but they’ve kind of loused it up.

The biggest irk to me, and I said this when the trailer initially came out, is the animation choices. Like, all of them. I know they’re basing it off of Akira Himekawa’s manga, but what works in static still images does not always work with…well, moving images. Honestly when Link is talking about his uncle raising him, he looks horribly deformed! I was grimacing the entire way through. Then there’s the shading, where in some portions it’s soft, but in other cuts it’s super detailed and they try to convey every curve. Conflict of interests guys

"Oh, but it’s done by different animators!" So is every other anime under the sun. In fact 95% of anime is based on a manga counterpart, just like this is. So why then is it so easy for me to tell when the animation changes hands? I can practically point it out when I’m watching this.

Can we also take a minute to talk about how when Link looks back over his shoulder from the fireplace we’re suddenly cropped to the proportions of an iPhone? That’s the stuff I’m talking about. Don’t copy the manga tit-for-tat. It’s your project, you’re allowed to take some artistic freedom with the source material!

Then there’s the cast. Honestly, from what I heard, almost everyone fits their character perfectly. I say almost everyone because..well, I’ll cover it when I get to it.

First up is Link’s voice actor of Todd Haberkorn. He’s not a bad choice, and his voice fits the character rather well. I really can see that voice coming out of the sixteen year old Link’s body. I do have to question some of his deliveries, namely in the lines after he wakes up from the vision…it sounds more like he’s making a statement than calling out in curiosity for his uncle….

Next up is Uncle Alfon, voiced by Kent Williams. A great choice for him, as he sounds like the chubby, heartwarming and caring uncle that Link’s supposed to have. Another good choice, and his performance is done well.

Next is the one I have the biggest peeve with…Kira Buckland as Zelda. I’m sorry, but couldn’t you have gotten someone that…wasn’t her? I have no qualms with Rina-chan, but her voice does NOT fit teenage, Link to the Past Zelda. Skyward Sword I might be wiling to debate on, but something about her voice just….doesn’t work with this particular Zelda incarnation. Not to mention this is probably her highest calling since Pony.MOV….I dunno, when you’re bringing on anime voicework professionals like Todd Haberkorn and Vic Mignona, I have to question why you couldn’t have gotten a more professional sounding voice actress. Rina-chan is more like…a comedic voice actress. I just can’t take her seriously after Magic.MOV

Speaking of whom, Vic Mignona plays the wizard Agahnim. Honestly, I always pictured him as a crotchity odl man when I played the games, but after both seeing the official artwork and hearing Vic’s gravelly voiced performance of Broly…I can see the combination fitting fairly well. Time will be the judge since we didn’t hear more than a grunt from him, but what’re you gonna do?

I also wanna talk a little bit about the sound engineering, but only briefly since the issue was pretty brief. During the scene where Link is walking to Hyrule Castle, we get the classic intro music to Link to the Past that plays when you do the same thing in the game. All right, coolio. But here’s the thing—I can barely hear it and Link’s lines over the sub par wind sound effect—it drowned out everything.

So…those are my thoughts. I know I’m harping on a fan made project pretty harshly, but it sounds like they’re pouring their hearts and souls into it, and they’re making basic mistakes that could have been pretty easily avoided. Have your animation team convene a little more to get a style that they can all work with, tap your sound engineers with a newspaper and tell them no. It’s on the right track, it could just be….better.

I was going to talk about the constant blurry-vision like in Warriors of Virtue’s action scenes, but I think I’ll save that for the review of episode 2, if I do one.))

"The man’s depressed! Whatever you said or did pushed him there. Now, what. Did. You. Say?"

Literally what I just told you! And he’s not my problem! Now OUT OF MY CASTLE!

      He’d turned to leave, but then stopped and turned back around.

      "Oh.. I had nearly forgotten.. I had come with a question… Have you seen Fierce Deity around? I cannot find him, and I am beginning to worry…"

That struck a nerve, even if he didn’t intend it. “Out….”

"NOW!"

      "If you feel hurting… Erm.. Or even killing me… Would help you fell better… I will not object… The things I did were.. Horrible…" He didn’t leave. It was obvious that he was terrified of what the other might do. But he held his ground.

      "Ah? She is you Daughter..?” He scruffled his nose for a second then fully stepped into the room. He bowed to the other kept his gaze low.

      "I would like to apologize then.. I am sorry.. Im was not in my right mind at the time." 

Then I suggest you leave before I do something “not quite in my right mind.”
