Scanned and uploaded by the Zelda fansite Kasuto, this beautiful manga following the original Legend of Zelda - Hyrule Fantasy storyline was drawn and written by Yuu Mishouzaki and published in 1989.
In this manga adaption Link isn't a traveller but an apprentice gardener living in Hyrule Castle. Other differences include Link's ears being pointed due to his being a half-elf (in the AoL manual illustrations the ears of Impa's tribe are also pointed), Impa is drastically younger (possibly because Zelda is stated to be of the same generation as Link), etc. These changes contribute to the manga's drastic deviation from the canon.
