Talk:The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Himekawa)
I know this discussion page is not about speculations, but I have doubt about the manga cover. Here is my question: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=Alz54ur0MSuVLQGGFuZq40rsy6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20111216064751AAQ1O7E Can anyone answer me, please? Thank you :) --Isamisa 09:53, 16 December 2011 (EST)
- I feel obliged to answer! The girl is supposed to be Hylia (the one on the right page), and the guy who looks like Link on the left is supposed to be another chosen hero. Lookie here: manga preview. Hope that helps! Dany36 16:47, 16 December 2011 (EST)
Thank you so much for answering to me! You're a really nice person :) In yahoo answers I don't have any answers ._.. Anyway, does in the game mention that hero? (link look alike) Just asking :) --Isamisa 19:19, 16 December 2011 (EST)

This article seems to imply that it'll be a full series, but Hyrule Historia seems to pretty clearly state that it's just a 32-page one-shot. Plus, i quick skimmed a google translated version of the artist's website and i couldn't find any evidence of it extending beyond what was printed in HH. Morgil27 06:42, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
- Thank you for pointing that out. I think at the time the article was written, it was a bit more ambiguous as to whether or not it was just a one-shot or a series, but it's been fixed now. :) - TonyT S C 07:28, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
How do we know for certain that it's non-canon?
I know Zelda mangas are generally non-canon, but this one was included in Hyrule Historia, which is considered canon. What's more, the other Zelda mangas are adaptations of the game stories with deviations, while this one is instead a prequel to one of the games, and fits in continuity. So how do people know for certain that it's not canon? Did Aonuma or someone state so, or people are just making an assumption? Drillzer (talk) 18:28, 3 March 2018 (UTC)
- It doesn't fit in with the continuity of Skyward Sword, so it is non-canon. Particularly the content surrounding the Master Sword conflicts with the established canon. Without verification that the Master Sword somehow turned into the Goddess Sword, it can't be regarded as canon. TriforceTony (talk) 18:45, 3 March 2018 (UTC)
- That seems a bit arbitrary, but perhaps I'm at fault for misunderstanding. Could you tell us the scene from the manga that conflicts with the scene from the game more specifically?
- If possible we should have more editors chip in on this like how Wikipedia has a requests for comments (RFC). I totally respect your input Tony as head admin of this site, but at the end of the day this still is just one fan's opinion determining it to be 'non-canon'. Without an official statement from a Nintendo dev, we should have more voices weigh on on this rather than one fan having the final say, no disrespect. Editorguy117 (talk) 21:49, 7 August 2019 (UTC)
